Mission Conference

 Got to see Elder Swensen at Mission Conference, Love that guy....

Kind of hot that day....

Hey everyone! 
 This last week was super good! we had a misison conference this last week, where President Richardson talked to us about how he wants us to introduce the BOM to people now. first, he told us all to always carry a Pros Bible, and hold them together so people can physically SEE that us crazy mormons do actually believe what the bible says! haha
and the second thing was how we introduce the BOM. What we are to do is read the first three and last two paragraphs of the intro page, and then go straight to 3rd nephi ch 11-20, and let the people read those just so they can read about christ's personal ministry, and then they can start from the beginning. SO AWESOME! :)
cool little bom experience. So, in our personal studies, as a rule we read out of the BOM for 30 minutes cada dia(every day) and yesterday i read through 4 nephi, and i read something that just smacked me right in the face. 
Constantly people bicker about religion, and it's understandable why people don't like alot of religion. If you understand the concept of the Apostasy, then it's rather easily explained. And when you understand that, you may understand the idea of a loving heavenly father bringing us the "fulness of the gospel". But the biggest question is why? what is the point of the restoration?

 15 And it came to pass that there was no contention in the land, because of the love of God which did dwell in the hearts of the people.
 16 And there were no envyings, nor strifes, nor tumults, nor whoredoms, nor lyings, nor murders, nor any manner of lasciviousness; and surely there could not be a happierpeople among all the people who had been created by the hand of God.
 17 There were no robbers, nor murderers, neither were there Lamanites, nor any manner of -ites; but they were inone, the children of Christ, and heirs to the kingdom of God.
 18 And how blessed were they! For the Lord did bless them in all their doings; yea, even they were blessed and prospered until an hundred and ten years had passed away; and the first generation from Christ had passed away, and there was no contention in all the land.

That's what it's all about. Only the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, given by christ, and administered through authorized representatives,(prophets) can unite all people in peace. It is only the gospel of christ that can help us to have perfect love. 
Well, I love you all! sadly this one is a bit shorter than usual, but i do love you!
