Wk 44 - Conferencia General

Companion: Elder Copling
Area: Talcahuano
the church where i am at in the night time.
 it is cool that our church you can see from far away because it is on a tall hill.
it just sucks walking to it! haha
i felt like i was in heaven eating this sandwhich
 conferenvce was awesome and i loved it. i watched it in english because i like to listen to their actual voices

I just got say that conference was sweet!!! i cant wait to go over my notes and see what more i can learn. It was so funny how a lot talked about getting married and so image a room full of missionarys listening to that over and over again. it was pretty funny. i was thinking to myself like nah im good!! haha but looks like jenna and matt are on that so that's good!!

it sounds like the boys are doing good in baseball!! its way good to hear and i am so happy for them. 

I cant tell you how many times i felt the spirit so strongly in general conference. it was so surprising how i could focus so well. mom you know me i can't focus very well but it seemed like each talk was flippin awesome!

Something about our sector is en los cerros which is the hills where it is really high up. so at times when we have clouds the clouds are right on us so it is like we are walking through clouds. the past couple of days i have been able to feel the water in the air and it is so cool i love it. here in chile in the winter it just rains. it hasnt rained yet too hard but im sure it will! i cant wait for the rain. i know this sounds weird but i love it when it rains!

i have to say in general conference when they said rulon stacey i was like hey thats my uncle! it was cool! and about brigham i am proud of that kid and i know he will be a diligent missionary! that is a sweet mission! 

i do love this missionary work so much. i love talking to random people in the street and just cracking a joke with them and be like hey is it cool if we come by to share this message! i have no idea how but i love doing it!! 

i love this gospel. i have witnessed the book of mormon change peoples life including mine. i know if we have that eternal perspective like they talked about in general conference we can find peace in this life.

i love you all and have a great week.
