Week 63 - High Spirits.....Low Energy...



HI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS WEEKEND WAS GENERAL CONFERENCE AND WASN'T IT INCREDIBLE!? Wow.... I need to listen to every talk 5 more times. I really felt like the windows of heaven were opened and there was not room enough to receive it all! So I will definitely be re-listening to a lot of it!😊

1st Session: We watched with the Larsens and Leo
2nd Session: Bishop's house with Sister Chapman who is a returning member 😊
Women's Session: At the church with Lidia
3rd Session: At the church again
4th Session: Foley Family😊 (Recent converts)

Things I really really loved:

  1. WE HAVE A LIVING PROPHET ON THE EARTH!...HOW COOL IS THAT! No but seriously. This is our unique message to the world. This is the Restoration. That Christ's Gospel in its fullness has been restored and continues to be restored through living prophets who speak for God. AMAZING. WOW. If you don't feel like this is the best thing ever please pray about it. (Then again it has taken me going on a mission to realize that it really is a big deal! haha).
  2. Okay... the Apostles and President Nelson are SO FUNNY! Seriously so cute and happy and they make you laugh and feel so loved as they whip you into shape and call you to repentance! I mean it doesn't get better than that!
  3. Women's Conference. ALL OF IT. I have such a desire to do everything I do out of love for my Heavenly Father and have that be my motive, more than duty. I also had a very special personal experience of what I desire my own family and home to be someday. I am so grateful for living prophets and the great love God has for us.

LEO!!!!!

Okay.. also we went on 4 exchanges this week. For anyone that doesn't know. That is insane. Like we only got to see each other for 15 minutes between two of them.

Canterbury Exchange: I was with Sister Payeur. Such a cutie! Love her! She is going through a lot right now. We taught some ASL, talked to a shirtless Spanish dude and got hot chocolate.

Low quality pic of sister Payeur and I...haha


Manchester Exchange: I was with Sister Vogel. Who is an English speaker, in a Spanish Area, with a Spanish comp. We managed a billion phone calls and taught our Catholic friend and his Catholic college friend and felt like quite the intellectuals.

Hanover Exchange: This one didn't get too far because the sister I was supposed to go with ended up throwing up on the side of the road...it was so sad. 😔So we took care of her and took her back to her area.

2nd Canterbury Exchange: This one was fun!! Sister Ward got her lasso sent out here from home... (she is from a ranch in Idaho) and we spend all evening, after we were in and safe, having her teach me how to rope a chair!....So fun.

ALSO LINDA IS GETTING BAPTIZED ON THE 27TH!!!!
IT IS SO EXCITING AND HER TESTIMONY HAS JUST SKYROCKETED AND WE ARE SO EXCITED AND SHE IS SO EXCITED AND SHE IS GOING TO BE SO BLESSED AND LIFE IS WONDERFUL!!!

Also... I have been super sick all week. I have a variety of symptoms, but mostly I am just tired.  But I think I am over the hill. 😃



OH!...transfers were decided. We met with President Blair a few times to talk about them because this is a complicated transfer. But big news: SISTER HOLMES AND I ARE STAYING TOGETHER!! woot woot!



Sister Holmes is so excited about this salsa


Hope you all have a great week!

Love,
Sister Brady

The day I was the most sick... and our strange morning started off by meeting some princesses on the side of the road.. naturally.
