fast week

Man this week was really good for us! Here are some highlights from the week!

- Had a really good FHE at Brett's house with a few of the ysa boys in the Belconnen ward. WE were able to talk to them about being "all in" instead of being one foot in and the other out. Twas a good powerful lesson and I really love those guys so its fun to spend time with them and teach them.

- Had my final zone conference with President and Sister Back. We learned a lot on the Atonement and repenting. It was a powerful conference and I love President and Sister Back so dang much! I could not have asked for better mission parents! 

- Did some good finding at the Unis this week. We got kicked off one day so we just went back the next day! It is finals time right now for the students so they are all stressed to the max haha but luckily we are still able to have some good conversations with them and a few are keen to meet up again! 

- We met with Kono and his family and they have a non member cousin that was there who lives tight by us actually, so we are going to hopefully start teaching him because he was pretty keen! We had a good lesson at the house though about goals. 

- We finally got to see Jarom again and see how he is doing. He is a semi active 18 year old and he is really in need of friends and good pick me ups so that is what we are trying to give him. It went well during our visit though.

-We went to one of the less active YSA guys footy game and he was injured so he just sat by us and talked to us so that was sick! There were two other ysa guys who were on the other team too which was sick! We always find some good success at those games because all the boys play or come watch haha.

- We sang in sacrament meeting which was fun, it was a Tongan hymn and it is really beautiful when sung right.. we did pretty good.. I think haha

- We had dinner and watched the CES devotional last night at the chapel with the YSA and we had a decent turn out so we were happy about that! 

Man I have been studying a lot about the Atonement and how it is truly infinite and eternal! These verses from the Book or Mormon really struck me when I read them,
Mosiah 4:6-7

" 6 say unto you, if ye have come to knowledge of the goodness of God, and his matchless power, and his wisdom, and hipatience, and his long-suffering towards the children of men; and also, the atonement which has been prepared frothe foundation of the world, that thereby salvation might come to him that should put hitrust in the Lord, and shoulbe diligent in keeping his commandments, and continue in the faith even unto the end of his life, mean the life of the mortal body—
say, that this is the man who receiveth salvation, through the atonement which was prepared from the foundation of the world for all mankind, whicever were since the fall of Adam, or who are, or who ever shall be, even unto the end of the world."
The Atonement was prepared from the beginning of the world because it is our only hope of Salvation! Without it we would never be able to make it back to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Luckily for us we do have the Atonement though and as we use it and apply it in our lives it lifts us to heights we never could have imagined. I know this is true! Love you all!
