On the road to Omak. Elder Wunderlich and Elder Wilde are our Omak Zone Leaders. We met with them this morning to start our day.
Elder Wilde and Elder WunderlichElder Wilde: We were taught how to be happy. The Brethren were straight forward about what we need to be doing. Don’t rationalize or rebel.
Elder Wunderlich: There was a lot about prayer and utilizing the Atonement and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. I loved the parts about missionary work and being a disciple of Jesus Christ and sharing our testimonies of Him. I want to know Jesus Christ more.
Elder Boshard and Elder Painter (serving in Coulee Dam)Elder Boshard: Conference was probably my favorite one Ever. I loved the talks on missionary work. They’ve helped me help with ward mission plans. I thought Pres. Monson’s talk on the Word of Wisdom was interesting. Why that topic? What does he know? They taught simple doctrines–the most important: Doctrine of Christ, Plan of Salvation and Missionary work.
Elder Painter: I loved how everyone had such a happy countenance! The main message was Finding Joy. I loved the promises about missionary work from Elder Oaks. We are in a bubble of goodness!
Notes to moms:
Elder Hibbard and Elder WestElder Hibbard: The messages were simple. Back to basics. I felt like the Brethren are sandbagging us, fortifying us against the future. They taught what we need to know. We are all on a path, but in different places.
Elder West: The talks centered on the basics. When they taught the Joseph Smith story (our investigator was there) I was ecstatic! I wrote down all my impressions about changes I want to make. Messages centered on Joseph Smith, the Restoration, how not to fall away, and strengthening the church.
Elder Dalton and Elder Amat (serving in Oroville)Elder Dalton: Simple doctrines focusing on things that will lead us to exaltation. The Apostles taught with stories that applied to us, then they testified.
Elder Amat: There were a lot of good stories. I liked Elder Holland about home teaching and the lady with the flood. I liked hearing about repentance and member missionary work from Elder Oaks.
