I loved General Conference! We live at an exciting time. How blessed we are to have living day Prophets and Apostles. I felt uplifted and strengthen, I feel hope and excitement for the future, and I have a greater conviction to repent and come unto Christ. I felt of the love that he has for all of us. It seemed so clear that he will never forsake us, leave us, or forget us. He knows us and loves us and will always be there for us.
Throughout my mission I have come to see and appreciate General Conference in a different way. I feel like I'm coming to know and love each of the Apostles and members of the First Presidency personally and individually.
We watched the first session on Saturday with the Nannies family. They are a part member from Columbia. The husband is a member and is from Colorado. His parents and brother were visiting and they are still active in the church. We arrived about ten minutes before Conference started and met everyone. I was surprised that Conference wasn't even on yet. They were busy cooking and taking picture. I guess everyone doesn't get as excited as us missionaries do to see Conference. But we were able to watch it and they had lots of good questions. Every time someone got up to speak they would say, "who is that? Is that the Prophet?" And we would respond accordingly, "no, that's one of the apostles" "Ohhh..." and then they'd listen in attentively to what he was saying adding an occasional "amen."
I testify that Jesus Christ is the head of this Church. He leads and guides us lovingly through the Prophet Thomas S. Monson and the Twelve Apostles. May we follow their counsel and come unto Christ.
