First things first: I GET TO GO TO THE TEMPLE ON TUESDAY!!!
(I don't know if you can tell, but I'm excited.)
I was invited to go to a Missionary Leadership Conference, along with several other missionaries who don't usually go (the conference normally consists of zone leaders and sister training leaders), on Wednesday in Bismarck. AND, everyone gets to go to the temple Tuesday night. Which includes myself :) There are also rumors that, because so many people are attending and there are people coming from the Missionary Training Center, we might be getting iPads :D which would be very exciting.
ALSO, Valentine is beautiful in the fall. Go home, Boston, Valentine is prettier. (I've been singing "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" if you wondered.) The weather has been perfect, and the leaves are all vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow.... well, there's still some green, but it's getting there.
We were able to watch conference at a couple different members' homes, and two of our investigators watched conference as well! I was so excited when Elder Renlund was called as an Apostle of the Lord, because he had come to our mission last month to speak to us. I love the feeling that watching General Conference brings into the home, I love that we're able to receive modern revelation through a living prophet, AND, I love that the Lord loves us a whole heck of a lot :) I've decided to start 'ponderizing' a scripture every week.... and I also heard that Elder Durant got some flack because of that word (was it copyrighted or something?), but I still really like the idea of memorizing/pondering one scripture every week. I want to focus on scriptures that talk about Christ and how His atonement helps us to become better. Luckily, that's a subject that has no shortage of scriptures :)

We saw a recent convert, Kristeen, this week and talked to her about the importance of family history. Families are so important to Heavenly Father! THEY'RE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING. Now that she has been baptized, she's going to work toward going to the temple and performing sacred ordinances for those who have passed on without having the opportunity. Isn't God so merciful?
We got a new investigator this week! Her name is Brittany, she just moved to Springview with her husband, Jeremy, from Ohio (woohoo!), and they have an adorable 8-month-old baby boy named Garrett. Sadly, we only get to go to Springview once every two weeks or so :( but we're definitely going to see them every chance we get!
Have a lovely week, everyone!  Count your blessings. It makes life happier.
