Letter #29 (April 7, 2014)


So basically only missionaries actually watch conference at the chapel anymore, so when President Uchtdorf said President's name we all started FREAKING OUT. But then were really confused when he said two names and then said that they were mission presidents and neither of them were President Becerra. Someone said that he was referring to Sunday School when he said that though, so I don't know. But it has been confirmed. President Becerra is an area seventy for Sandy, Utah! CRAZYYYYYYYY.

Okay, I'm done geeking out.

This week was a lot slower, but a lot of that had to do with an onslaught of nurse calls. Sister Child got SO many calls/texts earlier this week! It was crazy! And all of our investigators have been sick or else have a family member that is sick that they are taking care of, so we were hardly able to see anyone this week, which really stunk. We did invite a TON of people to conference though.

Speaking of which... I LOVE General Conference! SO GOOD. I loved Elder Holland and Sister Stevens' talks. And well, all of them. I can't wait to re-read all of them! 

We also had an AMAZING zone meeting this week. There was a lot of spiritual awesomeness going on, but this is what I came up with:

If you saw someone get hit by a car, you wouldn't think, you would just rush over and try to save their life. Right? You would call 911, make sure that no other cars got in the way, make sure that he/she is breathing, etc. We would do anything to save their life. But really, if you think about it, their physical life is of much lesser consequence than their spiritual life. So why do we not do everything that we can to save them from spiritual death? Everyone dies physically. It is part of God's plan for us. But we don't have to die spiritually. And God doesn't want us to. So when we see all of the people all around us who don't have the truths of the Restored gospel in their lives, then we should rush to their aid and do everything that lies within our power to help them. To save them. We are all spiritual superheroes. Every one of us. We should respond to saving a spiritual life with the same (or greater) fervor as we do with saving a physical one. Because ultimately, that is much more important.

I am working on becoming a better superhero. It isn't easy, but we MUST work on becoming better so that we can save our brothers and sisters. I hope that you are all doing all that you can to help those around you.

I love you all and pray for you all the time.
