General Conference!

Okay, so how often does a Missionary get so go to general conference? Well in the Utah Provo Mission, The missionaries here get to go twice in their missions. And guess who go to go for the first time ever O_o? Guess. Yup... You got it. It was ME! :D I had the opportunity to attend the Sunday Afternoon Session of General Conferece! *Bounces* I was excited! So me and my temporary companion Sister Alcantar, left our apartment at 9:30 am to be in Heber by 11:45 am and was up in Salt Lake by 12:45 ish. and So we had an hour or so before conference started. So we had lunch, that was packed by our loverly Mission Mom, sister McCune. Then we walked to the Conference Center, President told us that we needed to be carefull of the Protesters, so I was expecting like Tons of them there. And there weren't as many there, there was one that was a Christian Jew, who had taken the missionary discussions from one of our missionaries here in the UPM. And he was saying that Satan and Jesus are not brothers, that Christ created Satan. and The sad thing was that Members were arguing back. I was like Come on, Satan is just tussling up your feathers. And there was another guy who was dressed up like the Devil with a banner sign that said "Hello, I am Satan. And these street preachers are my missionaries." It truely breaks my heart that people do this, that the Advisary has a great hold upon these peoples hearts that they do these things. Because seriously, do they not have anything else better to do than to cause trouble? The worst thing is that they show Temple Clothing. yeah.

So in Conference we were on the left hand side of the building in the front here is a picture so you can see for yourself where we were at

I wish we could have been front and center! But I can't complain because how often do you get to go to conference. 

And this months conference was amazing, on how we need to build a christ centered home. To raise our children to know and follow the ways of the Lord so that we can be built upon a sure foundation, when trials and temptation come our way we will not fall away. We need to be converted. Husbands are to LOVE their wives and wives are to LOVE their husbands. And as husband's and wives they are to LOVE their Children.  We need to be Faithful to our spouses, we need to teach our children right from wrong. It is our responsibility. I cannot wait until the May Ensign comes out so that I can study and mark up the ensign. They are modern day scriputre! 

After conference, we had the opportunity to walk around Temple Square. We went to the Visitor Center, got a picture of the missionaries with the Christus. Then we went to the Tabernacle, really cool place. Then we were going to into the assembly hall but twas locked, i Guess they had some kind of meeting going on there. Then we went into the South Side Visitor's Center and it was amazing! All about Families and how they fit into Heavenly Fathers plan. and There they had the cut out of the Salt Lake City Temple. Pretty Neat. And then we went home.  It felt weird to be out of the mission for that long. But the one thing i was grateful for was that I didn't run into any family members while I was in Salt Lake. Thanks Julie and Family for not being there :P

Then on the Trip. Sister Alcan Tar and I did some sight seeing. Will up date pictures later once I get them from her! :)

Love you all
