Sunday - General Conference and Calls
So we got up and were having personal study when we found out that we had to go to the church cuz general conference was starting. so we went straight to the church and watched general conference. so good. thought it was intersting that Elder Scott didn't speak and that President monson didn't give his like big sunday morning talk. but that's okay. Anyway, after general conference we had a meal with the ward which was way good and fun. love them so much. then we had our weekly coorelation meeting with our ward mission leader. he's the best. then we came home and finished all of our studies. that took a decent amount of time. haha then we had dinner and called some people and got a lot of appointments set up for this week! So heck yeah. :) haha
Thought - Service to Others
In conference i really enjoyed Elder Ringwood's talk. He is the area president here, so i've heard him talk a lot but here is an exerpt from his talk on serving others and being good without guile. He says "[Service is] not done for praise or accolades.These men and women are not motivated by the possibility of receiving titles or authority. They are disciples of Christ, going about doing good continually,and like Shiblon, they are trying to please their Father in Heaven. It saddens me when I hear of some who stop serving or even attending church because they are released from a calling or feel overlooked for a position or title. I hope they will one day learn the same lesson I learned as a young missionary—that the service that counts most is usually recognized by God alone. In our pursuit of me and mine, have we forgotten Thee and Thine?" The reason i like this is because i've learned this over and over on my mission. That we should serve others with all our heart even when they may not thank us or even when we don't gain anything from it. Cuz the truly important thing is that we are thinking of others instead of ourselves. Love you guys. :) Have a great week!
PS how are your guys' goals going? reachin em?
