I hope yous are all having a wonderful week! Ours has been absolutely insane!!! We had to give 2 trainings, stake conference, 3 exchanges, splits, We got to be companions with the wonderful Sister Bourelle for 3 days (Long story short her family is moving from Canada to Australia and she is serving her mission in Indonesia so basically she got permission from the 12 to have a 3 day holiday with us in Perth because she had to activate her visa)! Maya accepted the invitation to be baptised! We went to the temple! We set a goal as a district to give out 180 Book of Mormons this week! woo! We had an awesome Sisters Pday! So many things! haha! It was a party (a really righteous one anyways)!!!!
There was a reaccuring theme this week! And I'm sooo grateful for it because I have learned so much!!! This week has been all about having "broken hearts and contrite spirits" And let me tell you I have been humbled soo many times this week!! Its a wonderfully painful thing!!! And I'm so grateful for it!! I've learned so much about the atonement, gratitude, and aligning our will with Heavenly Fathers! We had an AMAZING adult session of stake conference here in Dianella! The spirit was so strong and Maya was able to come (she loved it, I loved it, we all loved it!) They spoke about conversion, about letting go of our will and aligning the affections of our heart with Heavenly Fathers! I absolutely Love Alma 37:36 it says "Let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever!) I'm so grateful for a wonderful mission president and stake president who were so inspired to speak on the same topic!! of having broken hearts and coming unto Christ! Something President Masson said that I loved was "If the affections of our hearts are placed upon the Lord then His commandments come alive in us!" I could go on all day with quotes from the conference! I'm so grateful for a loving Father in Heaven who gives me exactly what I need when I need it, even if sometimes I don't want it, or even think I need it! He is always there for us! And as we loose ourselves and our wills and our desires in him we will truly come out on top!! "The only way to win is to lose! "
I love you all I hope you have a fantastic week!!!
All of my love,
