We had Elder Bednar come and speak to us today for sacrament meeting! It was AMAZING!!! He spoke about Christ and how he always turns himself outward to help people, and we being natural man, always turn ourselves inward when times get rough, and we only think about ourselves. It was one of the most powerful talks I think I have ever heard. He also talked about how when we are on our missions, we need to be as Christ and turn ourselves outward toward other people, and if we do this and forget about ourselves, we will become converted unto Christ by the time we are done. (But we can't be only focused on this, or it won't happen) Nobody was even moving throughout the talk because we were all so amazed and overcome with the spirit, and just so into what he was saying. He talked all about Christ and becoming more like him, so it was perfect for Christmas. And we have yet to hear from another apostle tonight for our fireside, I can't wait. I miss everyone a ton today but it has been such a great opportunity to be able to feel the spirit so strong all day and just really focus on the true meaning of christmas, it's been one of the best days ever and it's only halfway over.
