It's been quite the information packed week haha We had a broadcast on Wednesday that changed a lot about missionary life. Our schedule has loosened quite a bit and we only report half of the information that we used to. It's been interesting getting used to it but I love it! It definitely promotes the idea that we're agents unto ourselves.
We also had Elder Echo Hawk come and visit our mission on Thursday and Friday. It was so awesome. I loved hearing his testimony and the testimonies of the missionaries I'm privileged enough to be serving with. The broadcast and Elder Echo Hawk both talked about being converted and how we do that. It's most definitely a process, but I think if my conversion level were on a graph, the time on my mission would have a pretty drastic spike.

My heavens. Part of me was frustrated that he would question my testimony or knowledge of the church, part of me was sad that he wouldn't even consider listening to the incredible truths we had to offer him, and for like a millisecond part of me wondered what it is that he knew that maybe I didn't about Joseph or the church. Which then led directly into an incredible thought process of what I do know. I don't know everything, but I know enough. I've received a personal witness through the spirit of God that God is my loving Heavenly Father, that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is where They want me to be. Nothing else should or ever could persuade me otherwise.
In other exciting news Uttra passed her baptismal interview on Sunday!! She is so excited :D We're so happy for her. She talks about all the time the difference that she's seen in her and her son's life from learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ. We taught her about tithing and she literally had zero concerns. All she had to say was "Sure! I need all the blessings from God that I can get!" She's absolutely incredible.
Our first concert is tonight! We had a dress rehearsal yesterday and today's the real deal. It was kind of funny, I felt like I was in high school again getting ready for Beauty and the Beast or something. I'm not dressed as a tea pot this time though, don't worry haha We're all super excited. There are just so many wonderful things that are going to come from this. We can feel it every time we practice. Our song list is powerful. Miracles to come.
Peace and Blessings
