Elder Scott Visits

So will you have your baptism on Saturday?
  • We moved the baptismal date for to the 21 of may.  I think it is still going to happen.  it had just been a while since had come to church, so we decided that it would be best to give him a little more time to prepare.  We also thought it would be best that he have a stronger testimony.
Have you seen any tornadoes?  The Southern United States is just being pounded with storms.  Keep safe.
  • Nope, on thursday when there were a bunch of storms again, we were inside the whole day.  Not because of the storms specifically, but on thursday we always do weekly planning, which seemed to last for ever this week, but we were inside until about 6 in the evening, and by that time there were blue skies. 
 So, this last week, we had a conference with Elder Richard G. Scott.  It was amazing.  it started at 9 in the morning, and he allowed all of us to shake his hand.  Then the first part, for about an hour and a half was instruction from  a 70, and pres. cotterall.  It was pretty cool though, because both the area 70 and Richard G Scott speak spanish, so the area 70 gave us some insruction on language learning.  This was kind of nice, because serving in the united states, speaking spanish, I think it gets neglected in the mission that there are spanish missionaries, and that it is important that we can clearly speak spanish.  Even though it's not the most important thing to be able to speak spanish, it's hard to effectively communicate the restored gospel of jesus Christ if you cant speak spanish.  Then Richard G Scott spoke to us for a little bit, and then for about an 1 1/2 he opened it up for Q. & A. IT was awesome, there were a lot of things that I learned.  At the end he bore his testimony of Jesus Christ.  Hearing the testimony from an apostle like that is an unforgetable experience.  It makes the hair stand up un your back, The spirit came in so strong, and I can't serve it justice in just writing about how it felt.
