|Sister Brown just arrived home! It's amazing the friendships formed|
on missions. These two served in Almere together. (taken at the
conference with Elder Ballard. Thank you for the picture Sister Brown!)

Let me just say, I love reading my e-mails about home life. Every time I read it I feel like I'm home for 7 or so minutes :).
Now don't think that I just want my way. In a good companionship it's never just my way or his way, when either of us come to the other with ideas, the other one listens, then we discuss and we NEVER let the other one feel stupid or like their idea was stupid. So sometimes my ideas are stupid :), but a good companion will listen, and after talking it out make the switch together. It should never feel like one is trying to convert the other completely to the others side, but a companionship should get there
together. This luxury I have experienced a few times out here. Companions should be able to have the ability to talk, to compromise, and come up with unified plans. It's not always easy, but it's worth it to try.

It was a really good conference and we learned a lot of things from them, but you know what the great part is? It's still the same spirit. There is definite power and authority that came from Elder Ballard. You could literally feel it when he came in the room and it just descended like a calming blanket on my nervous soul. He delivered a powerful message according to the Spirit and instructed us on how to be better missionaries, yet everything I learned that day doesn't compare to the lesson Heavenly Father had me learn from it.
