This week was fantastic, mostly because of General Conference but for other reasons as well. Conference was so great, I mean really, if you didn't watch it please do. So many wonderful principles were taught that will bring peace into your life. The Saturday sessions were the best, mostly because the last talk of both sessions were about missionary work, although I am a little biased. Hahaha, Saturday's was still really good regardless. I love the closing prayer on the Sunday afternoon session where he promised the Lord that he would continue to study the talks after the fact, or something like that. As I said amen I made sure I was willing to keep that promise as well, and I sure am. Ganga (the mom), Krish, and Monita (5) came to the Fifields home for the Sunday morning session! That's real progression on their part. The kids didn't pay attention at all and were a little rowdy but luckily we had them bring their Book of Mormon coloring book and that kept them somewhat entertained. We're just glad they came in general. Also, the Fifields made....cinnamon rolls! The tradition continues on even when I'm not at home. For those who don't know what I'm talking about, Dad usually makes cinnamon rolls for General Conference.
Another bit of success is that we have been trying to get the places we do service at to put service opportunities on JustServe, specifically the Salvation Army is excited to do so. We are really trying to use all of the tools given to us to hasten the work which includes JustServe, Family History, Facebook, and now church tours. The Church just released a new app called Chapel Tours which gives short little videos we can use when giving a church tour. We are in the planning stage of trying to have the Mongers come to a church tour so that we can try it out.
Transfers are this week and Elder Kloosterboer and I will be staying together for another transfer! The other Elders will be as well which means there will be no changes made in the St Charles Ward. This is not very common but we're excited to continue strengthening our relationships with the members here and to see progress made with the people we have found. Members are happy, we're happy, the Lord is happy. All around good stuff. Even though no changes are being made it is still a new transfer which means a new start and new goals. We are going to make this transfer even better than the last.
I don't know what it is but I'm super pumped for some reason. The Spirit is just letting me know that this is going to be a good transfer or something, who knows. This work is true, Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God, and the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ truly did take place. I am so happy that there were talks given on the subject of the Restoration and that almost every prayer had a testimony of it given. Man this church is true, I know it and I hope you know it as well.
Have a great week everyone. I love you all!
