October Conference

  

Okay so hopefully this email actually works. I was still receiving news of people not receiving emails after last Monday, so be sure to check eldercolemadsen.wordpress.com for the latest.
This last week was pretty great. We had exchanges with the Zone Leaders, and it was great to be able to take Elder Owens to our lessons in Spanish. We had a family home evening though and he totally sang in Spanish. He said he didn’t know what the words meant, but if he was going to learn the language, he would do an amazing job…he can already read it!
One of our weekly supper appointments cancelled so all six of us were scrambling to come up with something(s) to do for three hours. But we made it up by going over and watching Sunday Afternoon session of #GenConf (general conference). 
We helped set up for a regional garage sale Saturday morning. The community and United Way co-sponsor it and use the Westman Communications Arena, where the Wheat Kings play hockey. So we basically got up at 5:30 and spent three hours unloading people’s stuff and carting it to their tables all around the arena. After that we looked around. Nothing worth buying really as a missionary.
Conference was amazing though! Really good counsel from our church leaders. I really liked Neill F. Marriott’s and Elder Jeffrey R. Holland’s talks. Our investigator with the baptismal date for Saturday came to Sunday Morning session and said he really liked it. He also let us know he wanted me to baptise him! So we are just really working hard to get the baptismal service all set up with talks and music and such. Exciting times!
We love Conference! (Hence the photo)
