そうたいかい (General Conference)

The Zone
If you love conference and you know it raise your hand!!  I love, love, love, love, love conference!! It just gets better every time! It so amazing to see the love Heavenly Father has for us!

Funny Highlights: Yesterday we went to a members house for dinner. One of their daughters is 13, she's super cute, I love her to death. She is in love with my hair.  I was standing in line to get my food and I felt something tugging on my hair and I turned around to see she was standing behind me springing all my curls. Then during dinner I put my hair up in a bun and I looked over and her eyes were huge! Like how did you just do that!? So I asked her if she wanted a bun like mine and she got so excited it was the cutest thing ever. So I put her hair in a bun for her. This week the American Family were visited last week, their daughter turned 12 on Wednesday. So Sister Kempner and I decided to go decorate her room for her. When we went to dinner they came to pick us up but Wednesday we were like we can bike there it's no big deal. Little did we remember about this wonderful world we live in that Mountains are so much smaller in a car. Let's just say it look us 40 minutes to bike up and about 5 to bike down...

Captain Moroni
My ponderizie scripture for the week is 
Alma 46:36 - "And it came to pass also, that he caused the Title of Liberty (In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children) to be hoisted upon every tower which was in all the land, which was possessed by the Nephites; and thus Moroni planted the standard of liberty among the Nephites".

I love the image of Hoisting the Title of Liberty. All of us should plant our standards firm in the ground and then raise our Title of Liberty high for all to see. Let the world know what you know and love. Be a missionary and show love to everyone around you. Right before this verse in Alma Moroni runs around asking who will join with him. Who will join him? Who will follow the prophets council from conference and Simplify, Ponderizie, Behold Thy Mother, Repent and Be Clean? Who will hoist their Title of Liberty. So good, I just love prophets, they're the coolest!

Dinner party
Yesterday at dinner there was us, the Domon Family, the Tull Family (the Americans) and the Takahasi Family. The Brother Tull is the only one that knows Japanese in his family, Ai Domon just got back from a mission in Colorado and is the only one that knows English in her family, and the Takahasi family lived in Idaho for a little so they know a little bit of English, and then you have Sister Kemper who's fluent in Japanese and me. There were a lot of Enganese conversations going on. It was super cute. No one got frustrated in the ability or inabilities and everyone helped each other. It was so special. There was so much love and friendship in that house.

Caitlin sent me a letter a little bit ago about her adventures in Africa and something she said in there was super special to me. She said it doesn't matter where you are in the world all you need is love. Love is the foundation of everything. With love we can do anything. Like the Beatles sing "All you Need is Love".  Love after all is the reason we are here. God loves us to he sent us to earth to learn. God loves us so he gave us families. God loves us so he send His Son, who in a single act showed more love than we can comprehend. God loves us, each and every one of us. Also I love you! I love hearing from you! Thanks for everything you do!

(I love you)
