Yes, I got to hear from an Apostle of the Lord this week. And OHMYGOODNESS! It was just so AMAZING! So I'll get to why it was so amazing in a bit, first, the rest of the week!
Tuesday, we let the Elders use the car, so we were on bikes. But it was good! :)
Wednesday - We met Christopher! Christopher is so great! Let me tell you, he is so amazing! He has Hunter's Syndrome (so he's only 4 feet tall, maybe), but is a complete genius! He was taught by missionaries in the Raleigh Mission on Facebook, and now we're teaching him! Although he's not in our ward boundaries, but the ward he's in doesn't have missionaries. :P So we get to teach him! :)
Thursday - I don't feel like ANYTHING happened! Because we had weekly planning and drove down to Charlotte. So we had probably had 4 or 5 hours of actual proselyting. But it was good!
Friday - The day you've all been waiting to hear about!! The Mission Conference with Elder Cook! It was just amazing as a I said before. His wife was there too! Which was a miracle because usually when they travel in the states their wives don't get to come with. He talked about how our missions are the best things we can do right now to prepare for a future family. And just so much more. I can't even tell you everything! After the Conference we drove back to Burlington and worked for a few hours then drove to Kernersville for a meeting on Saturday in Wisten-Salem.
OH! I almost forgot! So at the beginning of the meeting we were sitting, listening to prelude music and one of the Assistance gets up and says, "Elders and Sisters, we have a unique opportunity today, not only do we get to hear from an Apostle of the Lord, but Elder Quentin L. Cook wants to shake each one of your hands." Yes, I got to shake the hand of Elder Cook! It was so amazing! I will never forget this day!
On Saturday, we had a Special Sisters Meeting in Wisten-Salem. President and Sister Craven talked to us and their daughter Sister Fransen, who served her mission in Australia, in one area! But that's besides the point. She is so amazing! And she gave us sisters some great advice!
Sunday - Christopher came to church!!! :) It was seriously the BEST THING EVER!!!! This week has just been so great! And I'm ready to take on this next week, even though it's going to be COLD! and were on BIKES! But it'll be a great week! :)
