Week 68: Exploring Tallahassee

Dear Friends and Family :)

This week someone sent me these funny pics so I thought I would share them with you all :)

As far as missionary work goes, Tallahassee is still kicking it! Its pretty huge and there are so many things around every corner. Sometimes I want to call it the "great and spacious city" because there is just so much. This week we spent some time teaching some awesome people and I look forward to seeing them all next week as well :) I just like to meet a lot of people. 

General conference was amazing! I hope that we all learned something unique to ourselves :)

Today we went to the capital building of tallahassee and it was a pretty big building... Not sure what to compare it too cause its been so long since ive been in utah, but it was pretty big. The elevator felt like we were flying in an airplane. my ears popped while going up. HAHA

This week I was also able to see the tender mercies of prayer :) As I watched General Conference, I kept getting the impression that my prayers needed to be more sincere. Sunday night I went back home and made it a point to make my prayer special, and not just a "Prayer." It was nice to know that as we do that, our father in Heaven is able to bless us more and help us more. I think just as Elder Uchdorf, that sometimes we take advantage of some of the little parts of the gospel like prayer. When in reality those are some of the primary answers that allow us to participate in the blessings of the spirit. I am pretty happy that I have the tender mercy of prayer :)

I love you all so much and hope you have a great week!
