A Visit from Elder Oaks

April 25, 2015
This week we prepared a lot for the coming of Elder Oaks.  We had to figure out how the missionaries are going to come into the building and how they are going to leave and where to put the buses.  It is crazy because I never really thought about all of that kind of stuff before when we had conferences. 
This week was really awesome.  We had Elder Oaks come and visit our mission it was so cool. First at the beginning of the Conference he had all of the missionaries shake his hand and that was really awesome it was really different to be able to see an apostle up close. After that he had the mission presidents and their wives talk and also a member of the Seventy. Then after he gave his talk.  He talked a lot about obedience and about always being ready to serve the Lord.  He used an example of a pen:  a pen is ready to use at all times 24/7 but the pen cannot write by itself; somebody has to write with it. So we need to be instruments in the Lords hand and also be ready to do his work.
This week was a great week.  I learned a lot.  Here are some pictures on top of a big building. Well I hope you all have a great week.
