First week in draper has been pretty great! It's so nice to have a car... The down side is now I have to eat less because I am going to gain wait here for sure.
Saturday we had an all Mission conference. We were all super stoked for this meeting because Elder Bednar of the Quorum of the 12 was going to attend. But when we get there, Elder Renland of the 12 and two members of the quorum of the 70 were present as well. That makes 4 general authorities for one of the best meetings I have ever been to. It was amazing to be directly addressed by two of the 12 living apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Sunday was fast and testimony meeting. We sat with our Chinese investigator, James, who is going to be baptized on Thursday, 5 days before he returns home to China. After the bishop started the meeting with his testimony, James was the first to get up and bare his testimony. The spirit was so strong as this man who had only learned about God a month ago Poured out his soul in gratitude to the lord. It was an amazing experience to see how strongly everyone was touched by the spirit. This man is going to be instrumental in bringing many to the truth about the gospel in his life. It made me remember the words of our prophet, "Regarding one’s testimony, remember, that which one willingly shares he keeps, while that which he selfishly keeps he loses. … Teach and Testify." The spirit witnesses to the testifier and the listener of the truth of all things.
I hope everyone is doing well and I miss you all!
