First off HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!
Love you so much! Thanks for everything you have done and sacrificed for me!!
So with the conference, it was amazing!!
First off, Joaquin Costa, from the 70, shared how he was baptized in the Ward Vicente Lopez in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This ward is right next to my ward, Suarez, and they are in our stake. The ward is where President Smith is, and the ward was with us during the conference (Because here, we get together as stakes to watch in the stake centers). So yeah, that was pretty cool.
Saturday was awesome because we got permision from president to see the Priesthood session!!
There were a TON of points to take from this conference, but as my brother Jaydon wrote me this week, the love for others had to have been the biggest for me. There were many good study topic ideas, such as of Christ from Elder Nelson, or the Living Christ which MANY mentioned, or the Prophets urge to us to read the Book of Mormon Everyday. But I loved the line most of all, That we will not fear to warn our fellows, if we have love for them. Jesus did not fear to warn anyone of wickedness and sin because he had a Perfect love for everyone.
What i took from the conference is that i need more charity! To be able to warn without fear to all that we know and see, that the only way to happiness and eternal joy is repentance and the Gospel of Christ.
We have had some really good successes this week with Ivan. Pray for him, and that he will be able to be baptized this weekend that comes!
I love you all, and I urge you to listen to the sessions again. It is scripture for us right now! Have a great week!!!
Love Elder Ryan
