For those of our friends who are totally confused by all the silly acronyms... We have silly phrases too...like Stake House...and Conference Weekend.
This past weekend Oct. 4th and 5th was the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS, Mormons) General Conference it is held in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Though now it is broadcasted to homes, stake houses (no there are not any menus) and now on the internet. This is a time of great excitement, because of the gospel being RESTORED to the earth.
After the death & resurection of Christ, and the death of the 12 apostles, the teachings of Christ became distorted and ushered in "Dark Ages". When Christ was upon the earth he established his church with prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists. We too now have a prophet to lead us and 12 apostles! How wonderful it is to be able to hear their council to us as a world, ALL OF US, as children of our Father in heaven, as those who know that Christ is our Savior and the only way back to the Father.
So, back to Conference Weekend we get to listen to these leaders teach and guide us. http://www.lds.org/conference/languages/0,6353,310-1,00.html
You can listen too, in a bunch of different languages.
I have a testimony, that Thomas S. Monson is The Prophet of God, holding all the keys to this time upon the earth. He is as the Prophets of old, he is here to lead us. He will guide us to prepare for the coming of Christ again to the earth.
What did I learn from conference this weekend...
Be HAPPY! Laugh! Prepare! Be United! There ARE Angels Among Us!
But, the most important thing...my testimony grew...I know that Jesus Christ knows me, he is my Savior, He loves me, and I am blessed beyond words.
