Happy late Valentines to you all also! It was like half way done with Sunday when i even remembered that it was Valentines, but i guess it was a good day. We had a Regional Conference today. The biggest thing that stuck out to me was Elder Renlund was talking and he was telling how when he and his wife were on vacation and their tour guide wanted to take them to the best coffee shop in town. They said that would be alright but dont get offended if we dont drink any coffee. She asked why they dont drink coffee. He said that he was trying to think of something awesome to share with them. But then his wife said This is the short answer. There was a young boy that went to a grove of trees. He said a prayer to God and God the father and Jesus Christ appeared to him. Later through revelation from God, we were told that we shouldnt drink coffee. the same thing happened later. They were asked when they were at Adam-ondi-aman (haha that has to be close, maybe) and some non-members asked what was special about this place because they just felt different and a lot of peace there. His wife answered the same way. He taught that as we answer questions the best way is to go the the Restoration. It is how they could feel the spirit and know that it is true. It wont lead to a argument or anything like that. That is one thing that we are going to try to use this week. When we are asked questions we relate it back to the restoration. We have seen it work. People feel like they have to listen to the answer because they asked. Its so great!T-- is doing really good! She does have a date for baptism. It is the 5th of March. She said that she wanted to move it up a week if she didnt work! it was so awesome. We figure out if she works later today some time. She is doing really good. She already told her boss that she isn't working Sundays anymore because thats her day and she wants to go to church! That was awesome also. She has also read a bunch of the gospel principles book and some how understands it all and agrees with its all also. She is amazing.
