Can words even describe how amazing this week was. The first part of the week was fantastic as we found 3 new investigators. One we found from passed records who was interested but decided to stop a while back. So we decided to go check him out and see if he'd like to be taught some more. But we soon realized that he didn't live there anymore, so we asked the the guy who answered the door if he'd like to be taught. Then next thing we know he has a baptismal date for the beginning of May! That was an exciting moment.
On Wednesday we were able to go to the temple! I've now been able to go to both temples in Hawaii already and how beautiful that was! I'll have to send some pictures next week. But how enlightening that was as I've come to an even greater understanding of the doctrine where now everything comes together in greater detail. The spirit was so incredibly strong but i soon realized that it was just a building block to prepare for the phenomenal general conference that took place the last couple days!
I don't know if it's just cause I'm on a mission, though I know that makes a major difference, or that general conference this time was just immaculate. This is how i felt and thought after conference. Oh how i have bather in the fountain of knowledge and spiritual conviction of what i know to be true. For my joy reaches to heaven like the sound of a trump. I see what the prophets in the Scriptures use such adjectives to try there best and describe there utter most deep feelings. Cause that is how i truly felt listening to general conference. My understanding has been stretched beyond my mortal imagination like a sponge that can't retain the excess water from heaven above.
The conference seem to be just a small moment in time. I'd look at the time and wonder where it all went wishing there would be more. I can't wait to continue to look over my notes but to get the Ensign this next month to ponder each message. I'm so grateful for personal revelation.
But besides that I would have to say this has been another best week in my records that I won't forget! I Love you all and thanks for your prayers and support.
Love, Elder Gardne
