General Conference Weekend, lots of amazing talks given, and time sitting in a VERY cold chapel. My favorites are always the ones with stories from their life, it means so much more coming from their life. Also amazing ones on fatherhood which was a nice change from last one's focus more on mothers. One's on self improvement and making wise choices, and not giving up when we can be fixed through Christ's atonement when we do make unwise choices.
This week we had 3 family history appointments. One that was super prepared, one that went way off topic, and one that was not that helpful for the missionaries since it was all advanced information that most missionaries won't EVER encounter. The variety week. We did however see that the more prepared the person was, the better it went. The more they learned, and the better the environment was for the spirit to testify of the truths we taught.
We didn't have any appointments this week work out as we helped Sister Lambson move to her new area, general conference took up the better part of two days, cancelled appointments galore and people not showing up, and sadly us needing to not go by them any more. I hate dropping people as a missionary, but sometimes it is for the best. Lost of less active people, but almost all of them were either busy, sick, or unwilling to do anything to help get them out of their current situation.
No matter what it was a alright week.
Photos from the temple trip. My companions both were busy then we had to leave, so I got one with sister Webb instead.
