Elder Bednar

Basically the highlight of this week was being able to attend 4 meetings where Elder Bednar was presiding. It was really good. The man is definitely inspired. The best part was when we did the priesthood session and the whole time was question and answer. Definitely instructive. Of course you've got the guy who stands up and asks Elder Bednar is he's seen Jesus Christ. Then you've got the guy who asks if it's time to establish Zion. The guy who asked about Zion is in our ward and he's awesome though. Anyways it was actually really cool how he answered that first question. He said that the Spirit witnesses to the Apostles in a way that is more powerful than all 5 senses. So he knows that Jesus is the Christ more confidently than if he's seen Him. Then today I was reading in the Book of Mormon and it said something that totally supports it. It was in 1 Nephi 11:29 if you want to look it up. Then in the general session Elder Bednar said something along the lines of: Don't worry about the end of the world, there's only a few men in the world who would know when it is, and I know them, and they don't know! It was really funny. He's a lot different in person then he is at general conference. Because he used to be the stake president here he opened up a lot more with the people here than he does anywhere else. At least that's what he said. He told us to repent a couple of times and that was pretty cool. Almost like the prophets of old. He also gave us a glimpse into the life of an apostle and how the church works behind the scenes. It was all very instructive and interesting. Anyways, we went down to Mena, the area we now have to cover, a couple of times this last week. We've already set a baptismal date with somebody down there. Then our investigator here, the pentecostal girl, we talked to her about baptism and she believes everything we teach her but the only thing holding her back is her grandma and sister who apparently are very pentecostal and would be the only ones in her family who would be mad. Then while we were in Mena, we talked to the ward mission leader down there who's a stud and he fundamentally changed how I look at and do missionary work which is good. Also I get to go to MLC tomorrow and that's gonna be really cool. Then we have zone conference on Friday, and we're going to Mena on Wednesday so we are going to be on the road A Lot because Mena is like 60 miles away from Greenwood. Our zone is still dope. We lost Elder Busi which makes me really, really sad, but the Elder who replaced him is really cool so it's alright. Well that's about all I have to say.
