February 13, 2012

We had a Mission Conference and Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the twelve came and we had a nice talk. It was really cool. It was wonderful. We had a Question and Answer period. He answered about 6 really good questions. One of the questions was "Elder Ballard what motivates you to do missionary work?"  And he had a very profound Answer. The first 2 words he said was Jesus Christ. I felt the Spirit so strong when he said that. He said something that really stuck out to me as well. I'm butchering this but he said I want Gethsemane to mean more then just words on a page. It really stuck out to me because how often do we read that part of the bible and are really not effected about what we read.  Then he read a little part of 3 Nephi 11 and he read it with so much passion it made me get goose bumps. He got tearie eyed when he read it. It was all just an amazing experience. That was the highlight of my week. =)  After we took a picture with the mission and he sat in on the picture and the camera guy was telling us " ok no hand signs and no Bunny Ears " and Elder Ballard said " Ya, or we will send you to Afghanistan"  We all laugh so hard. He is really funny. Before the Questions he said " Ok you can ask me anything. Just dont ask me where Kolob is because I dont know." We had a good time.  After that we went out to Eat with Uncle Scott and Aunt Christeen. We had a great time. =)
