April 4th

Hey Y’all!!

   This week was awesome! With a warm and breezy 80 degrees all week we have nothing to complain about. General Conference is always amazing as a missionary! Its probably equal to the super bowl for everyone else. And when Holland gets up there, there is definitely chanting going on! What an amazing conference we had this weekend!! To hear from the Prophets and Apostles is such a blessing!!
   As we were goin about our work this week, we were really focusing on teaching about prophets and Christ's original organization of the Church He established. It was really eye opening for me to teach these people about prophets. As someone born into the church, I have always known that we have a prophet here in the earth. As we taught and testified to the people of Oklahoma, It really strengthened my testimony of the divinity of our Prophet! There are so many people who don't have the knowledge of this! I am so thankful for President Thomas S. Monson who leads and guides us!
   Also this week we had the chance to go to the temple with Jay Hardy and Johnt'a Mitchell who have been recently baptized. Jay had done some family history work for his brother who passed away about 4 years ago from a rare form of cancer. He completed the record and was baptized as proxy for his brother! That was such a special experience! And to put the cherry on top, I was lucky enough to be the one to baptize him! It was such a special experience! The spirit was so strong there!
   Over all this week was amazing and we are so blessed! I have a testimony of Modern Day prophets and apostles and the words they speak!! I have a testimony of temples and the work that is done within their walls. I know that our Father in Heaven loves us and wants us all to be happy! He has given us the way through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know these things to be true and I will be eternally thankful for them!! Love y’all and have a great week!
