Conference - Week 36

There wasn't a whole lot that was going on this week, we taught some lessons and walked around a lot, nothing out of the ordinary for a day in the life here in St. Vincent.

On Tuesday we had a great district meeting about accountability for our actions and how we should not be slothful but be diligent and obedient. Its really cool to see these principles of missionary work talked about in the Book of Mormon. It really strengthens my testimony of it when I can read and apply what I read into life, especially missionary life. After district meeting I was able to go to Campden Park with Elder Wilson from Wisconsin. He is a hoot and we had a lot of fun serving together for the day or two. We taught some of their really cool investigators and had a really good time!

On Wednesday I spent most of the day with Elder Wilson and then headed back to Kingstown for correlation and a couple more lessons for the night. It was a really good lesson with a less active family about General Conference.

On Thursday we had some great lessons and were able to set a baptismal date with a woman named Brontie! She is excited to be baptized but knows that there are some things in her life that she needs to change.

On Friday we had some alright lessons but one that stuck out in particular was with a woman named Shakie. We taught her about the prophet Enos gaining a remission of his sins and going to do missionary work. She understood it well and wants to read more into the book of mormon! So that was super cool!

I cant even begin to talk about Saturday and Sunday though. Saturday was amazing. I've never had such an amazing experience with conference as I have had on my mission. The spirit is so strong. It was great! 

Sunday was a great day! I loved being there at the branch with all the members listening to the men and women called of God to speak to us. It was such a fantastic experience.

It was an average week, a hard week, but an okay week. Conference was a definite improvement and a great way to finish it off.

Thanks for all the love and prayers! Keep up the good work! 

Love you all tons!

Elder Dorrance
