General Conference!‏

What up what up? This week was killer! We've been doing a lot of sitting this week with meetings, planning, and General Conference! First is the meetings. Elder Browning and i had a meeting in Crestview Florida on Wednesday with President Smith so that was fun. We got to travel and stay the night with some missionaries over in the Pensacola area (between Atmore and Crestview). It was a lot of fun and the meeting went great. Us and some other missionaries were at the meeting and we got to discuss some of the work that is going on in our part of the mission and how we can improve in different areas. It's always fun to be around President. Elder Browning and I had an exchange after the meeting and Elder Browning went to Tallahassee for the night and next day and i got to have Elder Palau with me in Atmore for that time. Elder Palau is a big Tongan from Salt Lake City. Fun facts about Elder Palau: 1- He went to East High 2-He played football for them which means that we have hit helmets quite a few times (i was on the receiving end of the blows for sure). 3- He speaks Tongan, English, and Spanish. 4- He has a full ride scholarship to play fullback for BYU when he gets home. 5- He's the most loving guy that i know. It was a lot of fun to serve with him for a few days and it was great to learn from the great example of love for all men that he showed to me. 
I cannot believe how much i have missed throughout the years as i have been playin with legos instead of listening to General Conference and taking notes. Never has General Conference impacted me so much in my life than right now. It may be because i am in a missionary mode and mind set and that's why it affects me so much but its a beautiful thing to know that we have Prophets and Apostles to advise us and help us to not be lost in the dark of the continually darkening world. It was the exclamation point to finish a very spiritually lifting week! Love you all and hope that all is going well! #hearthemusic
