WOW! Time has flown by! I still remember my first night here in Chalmette. What an adventure so far! Mardi Gras, Christmas, Easter, New Years, and even my birthday and Thanksgiving. We had some great members take care of us while I was here. I love this Branch and wish the best for it.
This week was great though. Conference was amazing! I loved watching it. I gained so much Spiritual strength. I really enjoyed how a lot of the focus was on temples. I even studied temples this morning, and the power that we can gain and the knowledge learned therein. I hope all of you make it a goal to go to the temple.
I also learned that sincere prayer helps us develop greater humility. I am certainly going to pray more sincerely and ask for specific blessings. I love learning about how I can be a better person, I just need to go out and do it now. Haha.
We went to a Christian concert this week. It was interesting to see how some people celebrate and show their love to God. It was fun and quite the experience.
Anyway, great week! I'm really going to miss everyone here. I'm a bit nervous for the new area, but I think I'll be able to adjust well.
