I loved this last General Conference.  It made me think a lot about where I am on the path of discipleship.  What are things I could change and need to change in order to be a more powerful tool in my service to the Lord?  What is holding me back?

I know that God lives.  I know that He calls prophets in these latter-days to help us, His Children, prepare for the second coming of our Savior Jesus Christ.  This is His church and we are His servants.  I love being a missionary and being able to feel the Spirit and see others learn to recognize the power of prayer and personal revelation.  I love being able to speak Portugues and was able to watch conference in Portugues this time.  What a wonderful blessing that the work of the Lord is moving forward so quickly.  This is my testimony that I leave with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
