So this week was totally amazing. We had Elder D. Todd Christofferson come to our mission! Us missionaries had a private meeting with us. He didn't actually talk that much, most of the time was a question and answer about missionary work, but the thing I loved most was that I am his companion. The apostles are only 15, and even with the 70's, they cannot reach the whole world. We, as missionaries, are the voice of the apostles directly into people's homes.
The unfortunate side of this is that, from what I know, the reason the apostle was here was because president sent two missionaries home this last month. It was the first missionaries he ever had to send home. Extremely sad.
There was a member session later on in the day, and we had one of our less-active members attend! When we visited him later this week, he seemed to have a new energy and excitement about the church. We have invited him to come teaching with us, and he is all for it!
Another cool thing I thought of while we were in the missionary session with the apostle, we sang the Sisters in
and Heleman's Army melody. President Rogers wanted us to look at the apostle
when we sang, but I, regardless of my ridiculous altitude, couldn't see him. In
fact, the majority of the meeting I couldn't see him, but I could feel his
spirit and knew he was there. It immediately made me think of my relationship
with my Eternal Father and Savior, Jesus Christ. I cannot see them, they have
never appeared to me, but I know they are there. I feel their guidance in my
life. I see their miracles. I know they love me, and all of you. I try to use Spanish all the time, and sometimes I find myself getting confused because I try to think in Spanish, but I don't know how to say what I'm trying to think! Zion
