My Favorite Conference Talk, Called to the Work by Elder David A. Bednar

Elder Fausett's favorite conference talk was given by Elder David A. Bednar,

Dear Mom and Dad,

This week we had a goal for anyone who wanted to be baptized on April 23rd to come to church Sunday. We went by all the investigators houses and none of them wanted to go. It was really heartbreaking, but we continued to keep walking to church and I said a prayer that if there was someone who was to be baptized on the 23rd that Heavenly Father would help us find them. Not ten seconds later a car stopped us and it was an investigator family on their way to church! We also found a man from Haiti who came here to find a new life and he also went to church with the Sisters in our zone. These have been the biggest blessings so far in my mission. I know God doesn’t always help us in our time, but in his and in that moment I knew his hand was in the work we were doing. It was fantastic!

Letter from Elder Fausett April 3, 2017

“If you have not read the Book of Mormon, read it… if you do so prayerfully and with sincere desire to know the truth, the Holy Ghost will manifest it’s truth to you.”  

President Thomas S. Monson

Dear Mom and  Dad,

We got to watch all of conference and it was so cool. Elder Bragg came to our stake in Chile and he spoke Saturday morning. The brother that gave the closing prayer in that same session lives in the Vina mission! I got to watch Elder Holland's talk in spanish with an investigator and there was so much more like the new temples ahhhhhhh I'm so happy about that and I loved the talk by President Monson, it was great! Elder Christoferson translates his own talks into Spanish for conference. I have also seen some cool things called mission belts. I love you, miss you and thank you for everything, I’m so grateful for everything you have done for me. Love you mom and dad.

Love, Elder Fausett
