April 10, 2012

Hello Hello family! it seems like i have not emailed in forever.... the reason why i didnt email last week is because we had to go into the office and get our phone fixed... that took like 3 hours because we had to wait for sprint to take action... so it took forever!
but its all good im alive and doing well!
These last couple of weeks have been super busy... we are teaching and finding alot! so its going great. General Conference was awesome!! it was so good to hear from teh Prophet, Apostles and other  General authorities and auxilaries. so many of the talks were amazing...  i love General Conference! it seems like when i was youger conference was always so boring and long, but now it seems too short. its like you listen to a couple short talks and a few songs then its over. its always so edifiying though.. i really enjoy conference.
some things that have happened this week... President Becerra came to my District Meeting and then to a couple lessons with us. that was pretty good he mostly just observes and doesnt say too much... he wants to see us teach and how we are doing sharing the Gospel with our investigators. it was fun to have him out with us for a few hours. during both lessons i looked over at him and said President is their anything you would like to add? and he would say a few things. i thought it was funny because i was expecting him to teach more. he said we were doing well and that we teach well, so its always nice to hear compliments ya know? speaking of compliments i was given a few more this week... one was a member of our mission Presidency, President Gutierrez he walked up to me and he was like Elder Emery huh... i was like yep thats me, and he said i have heard good things about Elder Emery and he asked where i was serving and he said call me up anytime i want to come out and teach with you... so that was nice to hear. i think one of the best one though was one from a close friend. so i was talking to Sister Olson yesterday and she was like i was emailing sister Folsom (sister Folsom was sister Olsons trainer she went home about a year ago) and she was saying she ran into one of my best friends. Sister Folsom is from Texas. Elder Deamer is in texas so im only assuming that it was him... some how Deamer and Folsom talked about me and Deamer said that i was one of the Big reasons he went on a mission. to me that was nice to hear .... Deamer is an awesome friend. oh would you be able to send me his mission Address? ive been wanting that.
Oh yeah Sister Olson was also saying that Her brother has jsut recently moved to Kaysville and he is in our stake... i guess somehow my name got brought up and someone was talking about me to her brother... ha too funny.
we have our Baptism on Sunday... it is going to be awesome! its Melissa who will be getting baptized! she is super excited and cant wait, we talked to her alot this past week and she is doing so good! President was really impressed by her when he came out with us to one her lessons. that will most likely be the highlight of our week!
Easter was good still not like home but it was good. i read alot about the death and resurrection of our lord. its such a blessing to know that our Heavenly Father Loved us so much... each and everyone of us so very much that he would hate to see us not make it back to him, so in his mercy he sent Jesus Christ to suffer for us that we might not be lost... that we would have the strength to endure hard things. that we would use his sons infinite and atoning sacrifice to repent and better ourselves... to be more and more like him everyday.
and because our Heavenly Father is so so Merciful he let his son resurrect for us... even after all he went through. it makes me want to be a better person... it makes me want to change my poor ways and be more like our savior.
i hope you all are doing well! i love you very much and i am excited to see you all again!
i love you
Love Elder Emery
