|COMPANIONS (Thanks for the picture Bairs)|
companionship is the first and I think only companionship in the mission to have ipads! The time is getting close haha.. but that is besides the point. We then got up the next morning to go to the conference. Elder Kearon is amazing! He is now one of my heroes and biggest examples. It is so hard to explain how down to earth yet so spiritual he is. He makes you participate out of your own desire to want to help and contribute. Basically I dont think I have ever received such a exact response to one of my prayers before. Literally almost every word that was spoken when I got to the conference to the time I left was a response to something I have been talking about with my Heavenly Father about. It showed me that I have a lot I need to improve on, but left me hopeful enough to be happy and want to try just a little bit harder. I don't think I have ever had such a good conference before. It was SUPER long don't get me wrong, but overall it was great. I wish I had time to go up and talk him personally but sadly I didn't. So it was worth all the travel and what not we had to do to get there. I also got to see a lot of people I haven't seen for a really long time! I got to see my "baby sister" aka Sora Bird from my Arad transfers. We gotta talk for a bit and catch up. She is super awesome and she actually is serving in Panduri, exactly where I was before Sibiu. She makes me laugh.
have our own "wars" there is no avoiding it, but we get to choose how we will let it affect us. We can become hardened and shut our friends, family, and God out. Maybe the "war" will make us choose where we will be obedient and where we wont. There are many ways to be "hardened". We make ourselves miserable and blame it on the "war". For those who have fallen into this category, don't give up. You can stay hardened for a little while longer, I personally realize it is easier and more comfortable that way, but don't stay that way much longer. I beg you to start the softening process and just try and let it soften you. it's not fun, and change is difficult, but it is promised we will be happier. So if nothing else rely on that to get started cause I KNOW you are not happy now. The Lamanites and the Nephites both went through the war and people from both sides were hardened and softened. Doesn't matter if you are a member of the church or not. You get to choose. Be careful!
