This week has seemed to fly by. Hopefully I can remember all the things that happened.
Last week on Exchanges with Elder Meyer (who is a Hmong Missionary) we went tracting in East St. Paul, we ran into Hmong lady. Elder Meyer asked her to give me a Hmong name which ended up being Vaam Cawn Seej which means "Protector of the Savior". Which was pretty awesome.
Last week we got a Mormon.org referral. This one was unusual because it was saying that someone needed help moving. When they usually say that, they say so and so requested a Book of Mormon or a Bible. We called her to come and help her move. We showed up and about 5 minutes later with 8 missionaries from the North St Paul zone which was pretty shocking. We ended up moving her in in about 50 minutes. Hopefully we will be able to get her to FHE tonight at a member’s home.
As for conference, President Uchtdorf, Saturday morning was probably my favorite. If there was any theme that I picked up on, it was that we all need to have our own testimony and know for ourselves the truthfulness of this restored gospel. We cannot rely on what other people know. We need to do as Richard G Scott said 1. Pray 2. Read Scriptures (Book of Mormon) 3. Have Family Home evening 4. Attend the Temple. Helaman 5:12 came to mind also. Some other things that really interested me where the two talks on the Law of the Fast. It had never appeared to me that the blessings of fasting also came from paying Fast Offerings and how we should contribute heavily to fast offerings and reach out to the poor. That wasn't a MTC choir that was a Viewmont High Choir spotting the people I knew. I’m sure Ryan Tracy was instrumental in getting Dallin that much air time.
To answer your Questions
I still have a few winter things to get. Boots, Scarf, Beanie, Etc.. Winter is Definitely coming. This week has been bitter cold.
My Companion is a District Trainer ( District Leader and Trainer)
We did not have a Conference dinner. We were taken to Mongolian Buffet By bishop and John Quinn (Running for state Rep look him up) that place was amazing. I ate there on Saturday and am still full.
Things are going well here. Have a Great Week!
