"Go forth with pow'r to tell the world, the gospel is restored,
That all may gain eternal life, thru Jesus Christ our Lord.
Go forth to preach his glorious truths of peace, of joy, and love,
That all who heed his holy word may praise the Lord above."

We also got to teach a couple of her investigators that were preparing for baptism later that Saturday. We came to visit them Saturday morning and the kids were jumping up an down saying "Mama and (her son) are getting baptized today!" over and over again. They all were just so excited. It is always so inspiring to see the true happiness that this gospel brings to the lives of the people and how supportive this family was of each other.

At the Zone Conference, it was awesome to hear from our mission president and his wife. Their talks were just so powerful and the spirit was just so present. The theme of the conference was the Apostasy and Restoration. One of the things that really struck me was the example of Hyrum Smith. He was an example of having compassion and understanding, he was quick to act, and he was a true example of being your brother's keeper. He stood at Joseph's side all throughout his life up until they both died in Carthage. Our families are one of the best gifts that we receive during this lifetime. We must also remember to support each other and love one another, after all, we have them for eternity. We are each other's keeper.
