General Conference


I know you're suppose to say that General Conference was awesome...but I truly had a spiritual feast this time around. My heart is full and my mind is bursting (which doesn't take too much) but I will share only a couple of insights.
First, President Monson asked us to pray that the hearts of governments not allowing the gospel to be preached in its boarders shall be softened so that their boarders will open up to missionary work. Upon hearing this I thought of my three sons and the possibility of them serving their missions in areas that are currently not allowing the gospel to be preached in its boarders.
Second, the overall theme seemed to be one of Hope and Gratitude in the face of Adversity. I know things are difficult, but it was reassuring to hear the leaders of the church bear testimony and teach encouraging, hopeful messages. I don't think Armageddon is upon us just yet.
Be good.
