This week was AWESOME!
So i pretty much don't remember anything except BEDNAR and JUDI's BAPTISM!
SO that is all i will email about!!!
FRIDAY we had a MISSION CONFERENCE with ELDER BEDNAR!
So it was pretty awesome. We drove to Elk Grove, and the WHOLE mission was there! So we all were in the gym, and got all lined up because we got to have a picture with him!! So we were supposed to be waiting reverently, but the photographer had us singing hymns, and 240 of us sound pretty good, so we sang Called to Serve, and another one and then how Firm a Foundation, but then during how firm a foundation he told us to sing verse 7, NO ONE KNOWS verse 7! So we sounded HORRIBLE. and of course that was when ELDER BEDNAR WALKED IN! soooo embarrassing. But oh well. So then we got a picture with him and the whole mission. I'm excited to see it. Then we all went into the chapel, and had the coolest meeting with him ever. Basically he just asked us what we learned when we were preparing for the meeting, and then he would ask comments based on that, and then he did a Q&A session. bahahaha so during the Q&A there was this elder who had a question, and oh ya sometimes the portable microphone was kind of cutting out,so he has his question:
Elder: so what do you say, or how do you help someone who feels like they can't change because they have sldrhosdifh feelings?
Bednar: sorry what was that? What kind of feelings?
Elder: oioisudfosidu feelings.
Bednar: One more time?
Elder: HOMOSEXUAL FEELINGS.
bahahaahah and then the mic didn't cut out, and he just shouted homosexual feelings infront of Elder Bednar hahaha. it was soooooo funny.
And ya Elder Bednar is seriously soooooo funny. I just loved him. And he is such a humble guy. But it is soooooo evident and easy to see that he is an apostle of the Lord.
I think the definite coolest part was at the end when he bore his testimony. As we all know, apostles are special witnesses of Christ, and everything in his testimony started with "I witness".
IT WAS SOOOO POWERFUL!!!!
Wow. Coolest day ever.
SATURDAY: JUDI GOT BAPTIZED!!!! IT WAS the best!!!! So Tom did the baptism, and wow it was just perfect. I am sooo happy for her! I really love Judi and Tom, and i am excited because this baptism is just the beginning for them!!! The temple is next :).
SUNDAY: STAKE CONFERENCE WITH ELDER BEDNAR soooooo! We had the new member/investigator meeting at 8:30, and get this. ahaha they kicked the missionaries out. It was really dumb. For real. Like we weren't even upset because we couldn't be there to see Bednar, but we were upset because we brought investigators, and then they made us leave them to sit by themselves....! Like some of the elders investigators had never even been in a church building before. So it was just really sad to see where the active members priorities were. They were only thinking about meeting elder bednar and not thinking about the people who this meeting was actually for. But whatever. But ya then stake conf was really good!!!
IT WAS A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!!!!!
WELL hahaha i will email you next week!!!!
LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
