|After Watching General Conference|
Dear Family and Friends,
You guys are going to kill me, but Elder Sandoval and I are going to be LATE to a very important family home evening, so this is going to be the shortest email that I ever send you ever....... .......SO....SORRY!
General conference was AMAZING! I loved it, and, yes, I got to see it in English. We had an English room in our stake center building, where I and about eight other missionaries watched all five sessions of conference while pigging out on junk food. There were lots of talks that were really good, but I think the one that stuck out to me the most, was President Uchtdorf's ( Link to talk ) during the priesthood session. I really liked his comparison about our desires and what the Lord requires of us, "wanting to give the guy who cuts us off in traffic a piece of our mind". I also really really enjoyed Elder Holland's talk. ( Link to talk ) Thank you for sending me the Oaks talk from 1992. I am not sure why it came into my mind, but I remember that Dad really likes it, and i wanted to read it. Link to Oak's Talk from 1992
Phil DID email me, finally! I love him!
And I got the big news on Andrew. (See details in message from Andrew below). I KNOW that he is prepared for what the Lord has called him to do.
It was a great week -- a really busy week. I had to get my visa redone, so I spent a whole day in the center of Santiago. We had a leadership meeting with President Wright earlier in the week, and there was some BIG NEWS. We are going to have a meeting with Elder Holland in November -- how exciting is that!
I am SO sorry for the shortness of this email. Thank you so much for your emails every week -- they really do mean a lot to me!
More details next week,
