Life in Ballina

Heyyy folks! Its me again. This email may be a little short but i shall type fast!

Jenna, YOU WENT TO PROM WITH A CUTE BOY!!! and you wore make up! its a miracle!! :) i hope it was so fun. Im sure you loved it!!! you're adorable. Sounds like Kaysville is doing well!! Mom and Dad keep holdin down the fort :)

So im not sure theres too much to report as i just emailed like 3 days ago, but HELLO conference was amazing!! We watched it this past Saturday and Sunday and i loved it so much. Of course i loved Elder Holland's talk about dispcipleship, and i loovvvveeed when he talked about how Christ's doctrine is not smooth and comfortable. "if you even think about breaking commandments, youve already broken them, in youre heart." and, "if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out!" man i love it, the gospel is the way, and living commandments is not easy. There seemed to be a theme throughout conference of the truth being opposed but standing firm anyway. i loved it. I love being a disciple of Christ because its hard. Life was not meant to be full of sunshine and rainbows, but when we are yoked with the Savior we can do all things! I also loved Elder Bednar's talk about the load and how the load we carry can give us spiritual traction. 

Family, we had to take a survey online and it ate my time! We are going to try to come back later and email again, but i love you all heaps !!!

Later....hello! So i know the email i sent was super short but we have more time now. But i feel wierd writing another bit email to everyone!!!. I really loved conference. And to answer the question of where we mainly work, we mainly work in Ballina, Alstonville and Wollongbar but our area covers everything east of Wollongbar on the coast.
We had dinner with a member this week, Sister Davey. She is almost 70 and she is so cute. She is always running around so busy and always asking us to sing in sacrament. Her grandkids were over and one of them is getting her mission call this week hopefully. Sister Stanton and I are going to go GQ in alstonville tonight which should be fun. (GQ stands for golden question, and means street contacting.) GQing is fun.
love you so much!!
