Okey dokey so we had our Tri-Zone Conference last week and HOLY COW!!!!! So amazing. We talked a lot about true conversion and what it really means to be truly converted to the Gospel and wow. Spiritual overload. We read a lot in the New Testament about Peter and how he had a testimony, but wasn’t truly converted until after Christ resurrected because he denied Him 3 times and all that stuff. And so Presidente then goes and tells us how the way we deny Christ is through our behavior and that ‘Conversion comes through our ACTIONS’ and it is so true. We can testify and say we believe all we want, but the only way we can show the Lord that we are converted is by what we do with that testimony. He said a lot about how whenever we go to a zone conference or district meeting or even a general conference, a lot of people comment about how nice it was and that you could feel the Spirit, but then never do anything with the things they learned. He then told us how we should never come out of a conference the same person we came in, because that means that the council we received didn’t do it’s purpose. And he’s so true – that whenever we catch ourselves saying ‘Oh what a nice conference’ we should then stop and think about how we are going to apply the principles we learned in our lives and then do it. Ahhhhh, Presidente is just great.
