The new mission president is from Connecticut. I think it will be the first person I meet from Connecticut in my life.
In my studies this last week I focused a lot on the Atonement. I was able to learn a lot but also comprehend it better and I am so grateful for the Atonement. Everything about it. Some of the talks that I was reading were:
"The Atonement" Russell M Nelson
"The Atonement" Boyd K. Packer.
and a lot of others that were great.
I especially liked the one by Russell M Nelson where he talks about the Atonement being Infinite. It was really interesting to see the insights on that. I remember President Archibald giving a training on that "Infinite" part of it and so It was also really cool to see his perspective on the infinite side of it.
The Atonement is the greatest thing. I don´t even know where I would be without it. I have made my promise to hold on to it as tight as I can so that I can too can enter into the Kingdom of My Father. My mind can not comprehend it fully and it never will. But I can be infinitely grateful. And I am.
Thanks for all that you all do. I´m blessed with the greatest family ever.
I hope you all go to see Alex for me this week. Give him a hug and buy him a chocolate shake for me. Also you have to bug him about Lebron coming back to win the finals.
