October 8, 2012- Joy

I hope that everyone had a wonderful conference weekend!

On Friday afternoon we held a baptismal service for Rodolfo. It was a special service and I feel very grateful that I could have been a part of it. Many members of the branch came to support him and his family just got bigger. He came to General conference and it was a great joy to be seated next to him as we listened to the words of the apostles and prophets.

So much has been happening I really don’t know where to start or how to begin and now I don’t have much time. But I just want to say how grateful I am to have been born in a time where we have a living prophet and where we can be guided. I think it is such a blessing, one that I have certainly taken for granted. I am grateful for the missionaries and for the mission work. I know that this is the work of the Lord. I am grateful for my parents who have raised me and helped me grow in the path. I think of my ancestors (whom now more than ever I want to learn about) and the lives they lived to provide me the opportunity to be here. I like what Ann M Dibb said, I’m a Mormon, I know it, I live it, and I love it! I feel the same way and am happy to share it. I have to go but I hope you all have a fabulous week, I love each and every one of you and hope you know that I care about your well being, even if I’m not the best letter writer or birthday remember.

Thank you for all of your love and support.
