This week was really good! I got my new companion his name is Elder Cook! We came out together, and stayed in the same room at the MTC together! So it was really good to be put with an old friend. We ball hard at basketball every morning, it is good playing against someone that is pretty good lol! We also had General Conference this weekend, and it was amazing!! I loved it! I would have to say the theme of conference was focusing on the importance of the covenants that we have made to follow Jesus Christ, and the importance to renew those covenants. There are definatley some things I need to work on in terms of partaking the Sacrament and making it more meaningful. I love this Gospel, I am so very grateful for the brethren and their inspired words!
Heath and Belinda had us over for a BBQ yesterday as well, and Heath's parents were there! We were able to teach the parents about Repentance and it was awesome!! Baptise the whole family hahaha! I love this work with all my heart.
