Before Mongolia, I wasn't really worried about what other people did with their lives. I figured as long as I was doing what's right and taking care of myself, then that was good enough. But I can feel the Lord changing me in that regard. I will share a couple experiences with you.
All the little Hoonsnee Delgoors (grocery stores)

Another small experience: we were on a bus, and there was a man probably in his mid or late 40's near the front that was looking at me (because everyone looks at you if you're American) so I smiled at him and he smiled back. Without even realizing it, I caught myself praying for this man whom I have never spoken to, that someday, whether in this life or the next, he will have the opportunity to hear the gospel and receive the priesthood.

The priesthood trend continues when on Sunday a new father had the opportunity to bless his little baby in sacrament meeting. As he gave the blessing, although I didn't understand all the words, the spirit again reconfirmed to me that the priesthood power is the same in every country, in every language, and it is real and unchanging.

I was again studying the the words of King Benjamin this week. I hope to become a more mighty and bold speaker when I have the opportunity to testify of the power of the priesthood and repentance. I'm so grateful that we can repent every day. I have learned how to utilize that gift, and in a purely selfish and physical sense, it helps me sleep better at night :) After I pray to my Father in Heaven, I know that I can go to bed having been forgiven of my mistakes of the day.
|I love pianos|
Mongolia is cool, yo! I'm not much of a big city girl, but I'm really starting to like this place :)

I'm glad you enjoyed conference- I'm excited to get to listen to it next week!We don't get to watch it until next week because it has to be translating to Mongolian! I loved the pictures! I recognized more people from the Logan Institute choir.
