Apr. 4, 2016 - We Get Credit for Trying

Happy Conference weekend everyone!

Lets just start off with the best closing pitcher in history, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland! His talk really struck me. "Please remember tomorrow, and all the days after that, that the Lord blesses those who want to improve, who accept the need for commandments and try to keep them, who cherish Christlike virtues and strive to the best of their ability to acquire them. If you stumble in that pursuit, so does everyone; the Savior is there to help you keep going." This quote was so comforting and I love this principle of the atonement of our savior Jesus Christ! We just have to keep trying everyday and we will be blessed! So keep trying!!

This week was too good! I said goodbye to my comp Elder Da Veiga and watched his plane leave. Literally. The airport is in our area and there is this little spot about 50 feet from the runway where we can go watch the planes take off and land. It's awesome! So we went and watched him take off haha we literally saw him in the window! too funny! Anyway I got a new comp Elder Sutton who is hilarious! We've become pretty good friends over the months but now we're comps! 

Vítor is all ready for baptism on the 9th and he loved conference! I was thanking all the apostles for all their talks about families and fatherhood. Vítor really received some personal revelation this weekend. 

One more quote from our Prophet just because I love him. "If we choose Christ, we will have made the correct Choice."
