It's the Mormonaries!!

This week was great!! We had zone conference which really focused on the Book of Mormon and Family History. It was really nice to be reminded of the simple tools we have been given to share the gospel to everyone around us. We had dinner with a member family this week and we shared a scripture in Alma 17:11 
"11 And the Lord said unto them also: Go forth among the Lamanites, thy brethren, and establish my word; yet ye shall be patient in long-suffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in me, and will make an instrument of thee in my hands unto the salvation of many souls."
We testified of the importance of being patient in our long suffering and afflictions. It is so much easier to be a Laman and Lemuel and complain to the Lord when things don't go our way instead of turning to him and seeing what we need to learn, and maybe when we go through things its not even for us but its for others to see our strength through that trial. Our member pointed out that it doesnt say our example will help one soul it will help many souls. What an incredible promised blessing. That we can help many souls come unto Christ just by your example.

Side Story.. Yesterday a member gave a talk on "when in Rome" He then said why cant we say "when in Utah?" I cracked up cause everyone here thinks Utah is like Mormon Wonderland. But he was just talking about the trends of the world and how we say well When in rome its okay to drink, or when in Rome its okay to smoke, or when in Rome its okay to look at pornography. When really its not okay at all. We shouldnt just say its okay we can do it because everyone else is but we should be doing what we know to be right. So When in Utah choose the right!!

To go back to Alma and the Book of Mormon from Zone Conference, I was thinking of when I got set apart for my mission. How President Madsen talked about Alma 17 and the Sons of Mosiah and Alma. Honestly I was like who the heck are those people. I read the Book of Mormon before I knew the church was true but I didnt know the gospel. I still dont know it obviously but I am grateful for the understanding I have gained through out my mission. My testimony has grown so much on the spirit. That when we sincerely want to know more God will give us more. We just have to allow Him into our lives. I am grateful for the Book of Mormon. I know it is true. I know Joseph Smith truly did see God the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and he did restore the true church. Which is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. So grateful for the power of the priesthood and that we have a living prophet here on earth today. Love you all heaps and hope you have an awesome week. Good luck to Ky on your mission. The best 18 months are ahead of you!! 

Kia Kaha,

Last Pday we went bowling and played laser tag. Sister Thompson beat all of us. But I got the highest score and I my team was the elders hahahaha only a little proud!

Our ward did a service night for refugees. We got to help out and it was the coolest thing to see everyone come to put together care packages. 

Zone conference. Just FYI our relief society is the best because they put together our food for lunch :) Win for Howick ward!
