We've had some AWESOME speakers come to the mtc lately.
Sister sharon UUbank or however you spell her name came
to relief society and talked about being persistant dilligent
missionaries. She said Be Relentless!! I like that a lot :)
Then a newly returned mission mom came this week and
talked about creative ways to share the gospel, she made
missionary work sound so much fun, It was sweet. Then
there was President Allen, from some missionary something
and he talked all about obedience. :) Loved it. he was
hilarious. And THEN the ultimate was last night.
Elder Holland came and did a freestyle talk. He yelled at us
and praised us and challenged us and then he answered
questions. It was a really special night. The spirit is still
with me today from it. burning in my chest. He talked about
a lot of great things. About how the gospel needs to burn in
the marrows of our bones. About how it's our duty to do this
work, about how it rests on our shoulders, about how we dont
have the right to let down all the people who love us, about
how to invite the spirit, about the best thing we can give christ,
about how we need to wrestle in prayer, and about just how
this needs to be somethings we do, forever. he talked about
how much he loved his mission and said he saw some of him
in our faces and said " I hope you see a little of you in me"
then said because one of us will have to take his place
Anyways. it was awesome.
