Hello Family!Did you all enjoy Conference weekend? I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't believe it's over - it just flew by way to fast. This entire week has just come and gone but so much has happened and Sister Juntilla and I were able to see many miracles happen.
Temple Square was packed all day long and we were able to meet a lot of members and hear about their stories and testimonies. The church might be small in comparison to the world but it sure is strong! As we were walking around during one of the sessions I caught myself pondering a lot of different experiences that I have had over the course of my mission so far (there's a lot!). This transfer President has invited all of us to focus on the Book of Mormon, to strengthen our testimonies of it so we can better help members and nonmembers gain a witness of the Book of Mormon, because only the Book of Mormon can be an anchor that never fails. He is calling it the "Keystone" Transfer. As I was able to see countless families all sitting reverently listening to God's Prophets and Apostles speak the spirit was able to reaffirm to me the truthfulness of this restored church. I love it and I love the Book of Mormon! It just all fits so nicely together.
During the weekend of Conference because of the craziness we were not given any time to be on the phones to call our investigators. So we prayed that we would be able to get a hold of all our investigators before the weekend - and we did! We were able to witness two miracles. One is with an investigator that Sister Hara and I found on chat, he just came online and was interested in going to church and so he did. Well about two weeks ago we gave him the phone number for the missionaries and invited him to call them and set up an appointment with them. We called him this week and he has had great experiences with the missionaries and with the Book of Mormon. He is now reading about 5 chapters every night before he goes to bed. He told us that his goal is to finish the Book of Mormon before he gets baptized :) Heavenly Father is really good at preparing the hearts of His children.
Our other investigator who had a great week is from the Philippines and is in a similar situation. In the Philippines they watch conference a week later because of the time difference so he is really excited and told us that he wouldn't miss it!
The sunshine is slowly fading away as we are transitioning into fall. More and more Christmas lights are being put up each day and now that Conference is over, Christmas should just be around the corner!
I love you all so very much! Thank you for reading these letters :)
