How did you like conference? It was so weird. On Sunday I was sitting there and I thought, "Wow. My family is sitting in the living room right now doing all of those traditions and I'm not there. Life is still going on out there in the world." Pretty crazy. Oh and just so you know, I've now been here for a full four weeks. Half way-ish. This is insane.
Obama's health care plan passed? ugh! I tried not to throw up when I heard that. Or that might've just been the "chicken" that I had for lunch that wanted out. Just kidding. But seriously…
anyhoo.... On a cooler note - CONFERENCE!!!!
O man, that was such a great conference! It totally rocked my universe. Also since I'm teaching so much about families and things like that, conference totally armed me with more teaching material. GAAAHHHHH!!! It was so awesome. And the music was the most uplifting it's ever been. I've learned the most from this than I have any other conference. I can't wait to get the Ensign (church magazine) for next month. It's seriously going to be the handbook for my life when I start a family. If any non-member friends of mine missed out, I strongly encourage them to ask their local Mormon friend for an Ensign or even better, watch the talk on lds.org. Those talks are incredibly uplifting and give so much direction in life that whether you're a member of our church or not you'll find truth and edification in what they say. Truly they are inspired men.
True story. We were in our class early because we didn't have the chance to go to gym. So we were the only ones on the entire floor. This guy walked by in the hall that was giving a couple a tour. He stuck his head in and asked us where we're going. When I told him where I was going he waved me over and said, "This is brother and sister Montalte. He's a stake president in Venezuela and is here for conference." All I was thinking was, "ok. Cool. Nice to meet you but...?" The guide continued and said, "Remember this man's name because he's going to be your mission president starting in June."
"WHAT?" Seriously I thought I was in the twilight zone. I wasn't even supposed to be in the room at the time, and totally by luck I got to meet him early. I can't WAIT to start working with him. Awesome, awesome experience.
Well everyone, I'm out of time. Hopefully I'll get a letter home to finish the update. But the church is still true and I admonish everyone to listen to the conference talks if they missed it. Or just listen to it again anyway.
Check out Mosiah 28:3 ...It's for sure the reason why I'm here.
Now they were desirous that salvation should be declared to every creature, for they could not bear that any human soul should perish; yea, even the very thoughts that any soul should endure endless torment did cause them to quake and tremble
Love you guys, bye!
