August 14, 2016

This week went by so fast, we had a lot of meetings and traveled around a lot. We had zone conference, and that is where we get to meet with our zone and President and sister Vidmar, and the assistants to the president. Its an all day meeting and its always so amazing. Its always good to spend time with President and Sister Vidmar. They are such an amazing couple. After the meeting President Vidmar and I had our handstand contest. There were like 50 missionaries watching and so we did it in the middle of the gym, neither of us moved for about 60 seconds but then I started to loose my balance and walking around on my hands. But I kept staying up and we both started to wobble around 1 min and 45 seconds and then he fell first. haha the video is so funny because everyone goes crazy. For some reason there had been a lot of pre-handstand hype and people were looking forward to it. Now the whole mission is practicing handstands and they always ask me what the technique is! but I think that he let me win this round and so we will schedule another one!
My companion and I are doing really well, Elder Halsey and I are always laughing and we get along really well, the ward that we are in has so many kind people and so we have been trying to meet them all. I had a really good experience this week because we had a stake conference on Saturday and Sunday! and they talked about family history and temples! Temples are the greatest thing, we can be sealed together with our families. . forever. It just made me realize even more how perfect Gods plan is for us. During one of the talks, they were talking about temples but I started to get answers to different unrealated questions that I had asked earlier in the week. Revelation is truth given from God to us! and when we are sitting in the right place with the right attitude then we are elligable for revelation. all we have to do is come with questions and look for answers. When we fast without a purpose then we are just starving, and when we attend meetings without a purpose then we are starving ourselves of revelation. I love this church because everything we do is to strengthen our faith and relationship with Jesus Christ. The closer we draw to him the more joy we can have, but sometimes we find ourselves farther away than we want to be, and that is when his grace, love, and Atonement kick in. 

when we make mistakes that seperate us from him, then He can forgive us and let is love heal the pain, and then we can feel joy again! I know that the trials we go through strenghten us and help us to draw closer to him (ether 12:27) 

I love you all
have a great week
Love Elder Wiser
