General Conference and American Night

Kia Ora!!! 
This week has been so good! Fist of all General Conference! i loved the theme of families and marriage it was so special! one of my favorites talks was by President Pearson, it was really special seeing him at the pulpit for conference because he is in the area presidency for my mission and he was here just a little while ago giving us a training and he is so amazing! he was the one that said "Stay by the Tree" and study the Book of Mormon "EVERY DAY, EVERY DAY, EVERY DAY" he is so good! i also loved President Monson's talk on temples. It was such ad amazing week, just very different than watching it at home in my pj's that's for sure! 
We have such a crazy week! we have an investigator, Terri, and she's been taught by HEAPS of missionaries for almost a year and a half now and we set her to be baptized on the 25th of this month!! she is so excited and so ready! it is such a blessing and i know that Heavenly Father has answered my prayers this week with Terri. she also came to sunday conference and she loved it. she is so excited to go to the temple next year and be sealed to her kids. she understands the blessings the temple can bring her and she wants it as soon as she can. i love terri and her kids, they are so special and i know Heavenly Father loves them too. 
Earlier in the week we went to Stevee's house and had 'American Night' i made fried chicken, fried pickled and soft pretzels and they mad a Maori traditional called boil-up. it was so much fun! nobody had ever had homemade fried chicken or even eaten pickles (except for on a burger from macca's) and didn't even know what pretzels were so it was so much fun watching them bite into the crunchy pickles and chicken. thanks so much dad for the frying tips they all loved it!! i also put some of grandma's seasoning in the flour and it was so good! they were blown away that grandma made it all herself hahaha i told them that we put it on everything back home and they thought it was magical seasonings. it was so fun to have that little piece of home here in new zealand, it was just weird being the one to do it all make sure it was all perfect. i now know how dad feels when he does all the frying hahaha go dad!! 
it's April now and that means cold season! it's SOO weird being opposite over here but it really is getting cold. it's been raining all day and im wearing tights and two jackets hahaha everyone makes fun of me because im a chicken with cold (thanks for that dad) and the weather is SOO different than AZ. it's weird actually having seasons! and rain! but i love it! 
i hope yous had a wonderful weeked and i love love love love love love yous!! 
Kia Kaha!
