"Make no small plans: This is the vision I have for the South. I believe that one day the South will baptize more people into the church than all other English speaking missions in the world together....We will see the time when we will baptize hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands...In your day you will see a million members of the church in the South. There will be temples plural in the Southern States. What a great call you have to serve with these marvelous people." President Spencer W. Kimball

General Conference and What's Next

April 6

General Conference was so amazing...except for that one part.. The messages were so inspiring. I loved it all. One thing that I learned and thought was amazingly relevant in my life right now was the call to raise the bar for young single adults. Man it seems like they always raise the bar right before I get to that stage. Anyway some of my favorite talks talked about the Atonement. The Atonement is something that I have really grown to appreciate. I have learned an appreciation for my Savior that nothing will ever take away from me. I am so grateful for the chance I have to repent it is so amazing cause I make so many mistakes. SO MANY. But just like in the story that Elder Holland told we jump and he catches us all we have to do is be brave and take the only option left to us JUMP!

This week is good I went on two exchanges, one with Elder McMurry from Houma.  We had some good times walking around talking to people.  I really learned a lot from him. We talked to this one guy who was super interested but of course he lived in a different area so those missionaries get a referral. Golden Referral might I add. Then right after that we started an exchange with Morgan City so Elder Page and I got to work together and that was awesome. Life is so awesome.  The church is so true. I just hope I can use the Atonement everyday for the rest of my life. The desire of my heart is to follow the words of the Prophets and Apostles, Cause despite what others think THEY ARE CALLED OF GOD! How awesome is it that we have someone with the authority to say "Thus saith the LORD" best thing a dumb kid from Draper, Utah could ask for.

Love ya,
Elder Andrews
P.S.  What is something I learned in conference?  Well if I am going to be honest the Brethren did not help with the trunkiness.  All Saturday was get married, go home get married, go home get married... dang...I guess I've got to get married. Also I am so sick of people picking at all the things I do wrong. But I guess I just have to be better.
