So this week we had an earthquake at 10:30 at night and I was going down stairs to turn the lights off and as I was going up the stairs it happened and we have 2 metal garage doors down stairs and they started shaking and it sounded like gun shots! So I thought I was getting shot at, so I jumped and then ran up the stairs and jumped in bed!! I had no idea it was an earthquake till the next morning when we got a text asking if we felt the earthquake, and my comp said oh that's what that noise was... I thought you fell hahahha!!
Ok so I've never been more excited for conference before in my life and I loved it! We didn't get to see saturday sessions but the other ones were great!! I really loved in Elder Bednars talk he quoted, I think Elder Wirthlin, but he said "come what may, and love it" and that's how the mission has been for me!! I've had many hard things come up and also some gross and weird things butttt I just decided to love it!! I'm not gonna be able to wipe with my hand in 2 years, so why not enjoy it di ba??
We had a baptism on Thursday and my companion took a pic of me during a quick talk on baptism so there's a pic of me in live action! It's so great having baptisms, it makes me soo happy! Like one of the conference talks said " look at every person thru heavenly fathers eyes... and we can only do that thru the spirit" and during baptisms you really get to do that, and it's truly amazing seeing a person come unto christ!!!
Last thing sooo in Devin G Durrant's talk he invited everyone to ponderize a scripture. I invite you all to do it too!! My scripture this week is Alma 26:12 I don't have time to type it up but it's great. I encourage you to look it up and then choose your own!!
ps." Don't just go thru the motions" Elder Oaks quote! Keep being the best examples to the whole world!! And keep the light in your eye shining like President Monson said!
LOVE ELDER BAKER
