“WE GATHER TO HEAR THE WORDS OF THE LORD AND WE RETURN TO OUR HOMES TO LIVE THEM”

Hi Family!!!

Well…I guess I am emailing Tuesdays again! Sorry for the confusion! I will be emailing on Tuesdays for the rest of this transfer and then I will probably be back to Mondays again unless I stay here in the Mountain View Ward. Speaking of which….I thought I told you guys but Sister Mcquivey will never leave this area because she is Cambodian speaking and all the Cambodians live here. So she will never be transferred:) As of right now, she is the only missionary in our mission that is called Cambodian speaking. Next Transfer (5 weeks) she will get two new Cambodian speaking missionaries!!! Once that happens they will strictly do only Cambodian work. The question is..Will they still have English sisters in the Mountain View Ward? I guess we will find out!

This week has been really good! It was General Conference as you all know and it was AMAZING! Probably my favorite one of all time. We watched it at our Bishops house both Saturday and Sunday and were able to invite Investigators over. No one showed up for us or the Elders on Saturday but on Sunday one of our investigators came and stayed the whole two sessions!! He took notes and LOVED it. It couldn’t have gone better:) It strengthened my testimony that we do have Prophets and Apostles on the earth today and that they are the mouth piece for God. It is so important to listen to their words. I got a lot out of Conference this weekend and I would like to share some of my favorite quotes from all of the talks.
