General Authority + Temple + Baptism = :)

It has been a GREAT week. 

I don't even know where to start. This week our mission was visited by Elder Golden of the 70. We had a leadership meeting Tuesday night, then I and some other missionaries had personal interviews, and then on Wednesday we had a 7-hour zone conference. To be honest, it was a little overwhelming - I didn't think there was room in my brain to take in everything I learned! (I still don't think there is. I'm still digesting.) In short, the whole experience was amazing. I can't even figure out what to write about it other than that. 

As well, we finally found out when we're leaving for Montreal AND HERE'S THE BEST PART - we don't leave until the day after the baptism!!! (In case you don't know, we have a baptism next week. Yay!) Which means we get to actually be there for it! Buuuuut we still don't know about transfer calls, when we come back, or which sisters' apartment we'll live in while we're there. But that's okay - we're here for the baptism!!! 

Speaking of the temple, we have been commanded to invite everyone to the temple open house. So if any of you are going to be in Montreal between November 5th and November 14th, come! Maybe you'll see me there! The temple is a sacred place, the house of God. Even before it has been dedicated, the Spirit is very strong there as it testifies of the Saviour and teaches the plan of salvation. In fact, even if you aren't anywhere near Montreal, I encourage you to make plans to attend the temple closest to you in the near future. I've never regretted a trip to the temple.

We also had stake conference this weekend. :) It was great. I loved some of the talks, particularly by some of the YSA who are preparing for missions. At one point, they had a group of primary children come up on the stand and recite memorized sections of The Living Christ. So cute!

Well, I'm not sure what else to write - probably because there's too much to write! Until next week!
