"I hope they call me on a mission, when I have grown a foot or two..." oh wait, I did grow a foot or two and was called on a mission...to Florida Tallahassee Spanish Speaking for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Join me as I start the best two years of my life!
Note: For the duration of Riley's mission, this blog will be produced and edited by his parents, Daisy and Todd Stonely.
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!
