Don't Forget General Conference

This week has been good. For starters I have an inspiring story about
donuts, this past Thursday I had a conversation with my companion about how
it had been a couple of months since I had a donut, then it just so
happened that night when we went over to a members house they had mini
donuts for desert, then after dinner we went to help a less active member
move to there new house and for refreshments they had donuts from Tim
Horton's. So I feel that even if you don't specifically pray for something,
if you are living righteously then God will still be willing to give you
what you are wanting.

Then on Saturday we were able to meet with one of our investigators who
lives out in Swan Hills, and he has been able to pray to know the Book of
Mormon is true so it is just a matter of time until he becomes a member and
bring his wife back into activity. I have learned that one of the ways you
can help re-activate someone is by teaching one of there family members or
friends and have them sit in on the lesson.

This past Sunday we had a the Stake presidency here to call a new member of
the branch presidency, and while they were here they gave a good lesson on
how we can get new members of the church, just by becoming friends with
someone and eventually invite the missionaries to go with you to meet them
and eventually have them meet more members of the church so that church can
be a little bit more social. But as long as they are able to be taught the
doctrines with a member there, they will be more receptive.

I am excited for General Conference, I have found that getting to hear the
talks from the head of the church is an excellent way to help me to endure
to the end. I would encourage you all to watch or listen or read Conference
this weekend. It is also important to remember what you are taught and
apply it to your life.

Here are pictures from my mission so far.
