Mom,This week was so great! I just felt so completely overwhelmed with love for my birthday. Elder S picked up his new companion, Elder F, from Zagreb and then brought back all of our mail and I got tons of letters from everyone and your HUGE package, Mom! That was so thoughtful of you and Grandma, thank you so much!! Everyone loved all the candy and the members devoured the flaming hot cheetos in just a few minutes, haha. Love you!
Presents and everything are so thoughtful and kind, but I always love how I get to watch Conference on my birthday weekend! It was so good this session! We only got to watch the morning sessions for Saturday and Sunday, but WOW. Uchtdorf's talk, Bednar's talk, Oak's, President Monson.... all of them so wonderful! Elder Uchtdorf's talk was so powerful and his was actually the talk I was going to write you about, and then you wrote me about it-- so in sync! Throughout Conference I loved the focus on strengthening ourselves and increasing our level of personal conversion. We always need to be working to become more converted through increasingly sincere prayer and scripture study. Also, families. We talk a lot about families as missionaries and I know that I just want to have such a sweet and kind husband. I don't care what he does, but as long as he is kind and faithful in the gospel, I'll be so, so happy.
Overall this week has been great! English classes are going well. We had some great lessons this week and Sister M and I are still working and teaching really well together. We are always trying to be better. I love her! We have Zone Conference again this week in Sarajevo, which takes up a whole day, but is worth it. President Rowe is so inspired and is always on the mark. We're really excited!
I hope you all have a wonderful week! Look for missionary opportunities and strive to become more converted everyday.
