The month of Halloween and my birthday is here! Spooky, yes? We had a successful conference weekend with Rachel coming to two sessions live and planning to watch it more later herself. We watched all but the last session at the church, then watched it from a member's home. We will be having a meal with Rachel later next week.
General Conference is a time that as a world wide church we gather to listen to our leaders. The conference is held in Salt Lake City Utah but is broadcast all over the world in 55 languages. You can find more information on the link below.
This transfer is now coming to a close. We got some good work in and hopefully will see some of the fruit of the labor as we go. If anything I know we continue to grow in our own understanding of the gospel. That is always valuable. This is the Lord's church, and that is not a matter of exclusivity. All are welcome and invited to come and join!
We spent a good deal of time on campus, it is an excellent place to pass by large amounts of people, allowing us to contact them or even them just talking to us. We hope to focus on finding new investigators, so if you pray for me pray for us to find!
