I have to tell you my highlight of the week real fast. Kay so every Sunday and Tuesday we have a devotional, which is where all the missionaries have a huge meeting in this massive auditorium and we listen to speakers! Well, at the Tuesday devotional they asked my companion, Sister Willmore to give the closing prayer so we got to sit on the stand! It was so cool. Looking out at thousands of missionaries was one of the most beautiful things I have every seen. Just wait! It's gets better! So you'll never guess who the speaker was.. M Russell Ballard!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He gave the most incredible and inspiring talk I think I've ever heard. I loved every second of it and I feel so blessed to be apart of this Army. So after the closing prayer was said, which by the way My comp did AMAZING! I was so so so so so proud of her! Well after she finished, Elder Ballard Stood up (So we all stood up too) and than walked straight over to us while the whole room quietly watched, and than he shook mine and my companions hand as well as the two elders who gave the opening prayer and than he waved at the crowd and walked out. WHAT?!?!?!?!?! did that really just happen?! When he touched my hand, his hands were so soft and it made me emotional. I imagine that is how the Saviors hands will feel.. I felt the savior squeeze my hand. It was one of those moments when you just feel the saviors love for you so strongly that all you can do in return is cry. my heart was burning with the spirit of God and I will NEVER forget this experience. I still don't know why it happened to me.. I mean there are over 3000 missionaries here.. I just feel so loved and special. I know I can serve a mission. I know I am going to be amazing. I just need to put my trust in the Lord and he will get me through ANYTHING! I've seen miracles here. The MTC is a magical place that's for sure.
