An Apostolic Week

It was a wonderful week. On Wednesday we went down to Eugene for Zone Conference withe Elder Snow of the 70, He talked about how everything is really a matter of faith, and how with enough faith we could obtain any of our goals. Sometimes we hear that and we think that it sounds too easy, but in reality its probably the hardest think to do. Its easy to say that we are going to have more faith and believe that are goals will come, but in order to have real faith we need to do something about it.

We also went to Eugene on Saturday and the whole mission was there. Elder Andersen of the twelve, Elder Hansen and Elder Rashband of the Seventy, and Bishop Stevenson the presiding Bishop were all there. They were all hear to go to different stake conference and some other stuff we are not sure about, but they took two and a half hours on Saturday and spoke to us. It was pretty cool because they went completely by the spirit. They had nothing prepared for the meeting. Pres. and Sis. Young gave 5 minute talks at the start of the meeting and then they turned the time over to Elder Andersen. He went up and we listed some stuff that we learned from Elder Snow and some other things we wanted to improve on and then each of them took sometime and expounded on one or more of the topics. It was amazing how in-tune with the spirit they all were. 

They had nothing prepared yet they taught us the exact things the mission needed. It really makes me want to get better and listening to and following the promptings of the spirit. One really cool thing that Niel L Andersen did was he encouraged us to use the New testament and stories of Christ more in our teaching, it really struck me that these Chinese people we are teaching need to learn more about Christ and his life hear on earth. Well I am flat out of time. I love you all!
