Dear Family and Friends,

This week was super good! General Conference was as good as ever! What was your favorite talk?  Everyone has a favorite talk! I know you do. I think my favorite talk was by Elder D. Todd Christofferson. Even though it starts off quoting a Shakespeare play that confused me because Shakespeare is hard to understand...I'll probably have to listen to that part 2 or 3 more times before I really understand it. Luckily Elder Christofferson expounds more on it. I like how he explains the principal of moral agency and the consequences that come from that freedom. Also, I like how he emphasized the importance of receiving personal revelation. Personal revelation is one of the most important principles but one of the most difficult to grasp. How great is it to think that God, the most supreme, powerful, all-knowing being in the universe wants to speak to you? He has power over all things and yet He uses all that power for you. That is if you will let him. God will not send revelation if you decide to close him out. The power of God will not "distill upon your soul" if you cover your soul with a sheet of rebellion and disobedience. But even so God will not give up on you. The moment you take off that sheet and open up the channels of revelation with him then "he doth immediately bless you". Remember that.

This week was really really good. We had a lot of fun with different activities with the zone and things like that. Also Elder Stallings and I got to go to the Newport Beach Temple so I could be with a Recent Convert from Huntington Beach. I was really close with and he's going on a mission now!! Such a great experience. It was so great to get to be there with him and to see all the awesome members from the ward I was in down there. 

This week should be a good one. We have our zone conference this week and it falls on the same day as my 18 month mark! Crazy right? I love you guys. Keep on truckin. That's what Enduring to the End, the last of the 5 Principles that make up the Gospel of Jesus Christ, boils down to. Keep on tuckin!

Keep it real.

Elder Sanderson
