Even if it’s a week later. It’s still amazing:) 

Ya, we had our general conference weekend the last couple days. It was in a nice, big, air-conditioned chapel and as usual, I learned a ton from it all. I think the difference from this conference, from any other general conference in my entire life, is the fact that I actually understood a lot of the references they used. The things they were talking about I could actually relate to and apply it to my life even if it wasn’t actually implied to me. It’s a blessing in the fact of the personal revelation we receive is only for us. It seems like they really focused on the God Head and how the Holy Ghost is a blessing to us if we learn to use it right. I know you all watched it and we all had things we liked so I’ll leave out all the corny things I would say but just know a lot of what was said had a really big impact on me. 
Another great thing that happened to me this week.  I started the Book of Mormon again and this time am going to make sure I understand it. Ya I’ve read it, learned, and can say I’ve finished it. But so far, I’m in 1 Nephi 6 and I’ve learned a ton. So let’s not forget to read the BOM every day. :) 
Also, my challenge to ya'll is to make commitments to follow everyone that spoke in conference. 
Love ya all!

Bridge leading to our island and then the main land on the other side. We actually found a member that lives there that was baptized in Masbate.
