LDS Face2Face Event

For the past two years the Church of Jesus Christ has done a worldwide event where general authorities answer questions from the youth. This is an event I look forward to each year. I haven't had any of my personally submitted questions but I always receive answers to questions I have. This year I was grateful that I went. I wasn't looking forward to going, I honestly wanted to go to a basketball game instead, but my parents told me no so I got over it and went. I am honestly so glad that I did.

This year they had 3 speakers who answered the questions, the first was Elder Rasband, of the 12, Sister Oscarson the General Young Women's President and the general young men's president Brother Owen. These three people are AMAZING! They have so much knowledge and faith, I loved every answer they gave. 

My very favorite part was a questions that Elder Rasband answered about missionary work. The overall answer that he gave was that we need to work on being missionaries now so that when we get into the field we know what we are doing. He also said that we need to work on our communication, and that sometimes we need to put our phones down and talk to that person in real life. This was something that really stuck with me because I always find myself texting someone and then seeing them somewhere and not knowing what to do when we have to have a legit conversation. 

Overall I loved this years face2face and I recommend it to everyone to go and watch it!
