I'm in shock right now.  This week has been the craziest awesomest thing that has ever happened to me!  Mostly the weekend.  Heres why:

CONNOR BROWN IS OFFICIALLY MORMON NOW!  That crazy son of a gun waited for all of us to go out, until we were all over the world to finally decide to get dunked!  By Bishop Harris!  That's so AWESOME!  I mysteriously lost contact with everybody about Connor and his missionary lessons until now!  Now I know why!  I'm just so happy typing this email right now I have to keep backspacing cause I'm shaking so much!!  IT FINALLY HAPPENED!

We listened to Elder M. Russell Ballard and shook his hand.  He was there in the flesh!  An apostle of the Lord!  He gave a super cool talk about finding new people to teach and then we had a quick 30 minute question answer thing.  There was a point when he started talking about "going to the Garden of Gethsemane" during trials, doubts, discouragement or whatever and the spirit just came through and bowled us all over.  You could've heard a pin drop.  It was awesome.  He told us that when he has no more strength, no more will, no more energy that he takes out his picture of Jesus Christ and looks at it and "goes to Gethsemane."  He looks around in Gethsemane, thinks about what Jesus Christ did for him, and he keeps going.  That simple.  If Jesus Christ did what he did for me in Gethsemane, then can we not do a little more when we are just out of energy, out of breath, out of strength?  So applicable and what I needed to hear.  What everyone needs to hear.
Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles,
 Elder Donald L. Hallstrom of the Presidency of the Seventy,
 and Elder D. Zachary Smith our Area Seventy
 with President Clark and his wife, Sister Clark

 I received a call on Friday night from President Clark and I've been called as a district leader and also training.  Yeah.  Not going to be hard at all right?  I have no idea what I'm going to be doing.  My trainee is gonna want me to be fluent.  Am I fluent?  You could say I can talk to ages 8-10 year old kids and be fluent....(personally, I'm hoping for a native trainee so he doesn't know English and I can help him learn English and learn Spanish in the process...) So yeah, just a few things I'm stressing over, but it's all good.  I'll get the hang of it hopefully pretty quick and be able to district leader, train, find, teach, baptize, and everything else before I know it!

Change is always a guarantee in this life so I guess I should be used to it by now, but I'm not. So I guess the Lord is helping me understand that a little more........

I'll let yall know how it goes.
