We had an amazing interviews and a Q&A with President Packard. It was truly inspiring and exactly what I needed. :)  I wanted to share with you an experience that I had that night after we got home and the next morning. 
As Sister Roy and I finished our daily planning with a prayer, we once again knelt in the same worn out places across from each other with the the look of...we're going to turn a new leaf. I paused and said, "You know what? Interviews really gives you a new love and appreciation for your companion doesn't it?" She looked at me an shook her head in agreement. :)

I started to look over the training that Elder Fish asked me to do for District meeting the next day and it was on- Weekly Planning, Daily Planning and Accountability.... How was I going to do a training on something that we all have heard about so many times- it's leaking out our ears. Ok.... then I took a moment to ponder the things my mission president had shared with us about the way to pray.  I started praying specifically for each of the members by name and words can't describe but I felt. A flood of ideas came to my mind faster then I could write down! :D I was so filled with excitement. I looked at the clock with only a minute left to get ready for bed!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!!! Time fly's when your having fun. ;)
The spirit was so strong at the meeting and I don't think it was exactly what everyone was expecting but I feel like I gave a fresh view. Which I feel everyone plus myself needed. It was the best feeling! I love teaching and getting people excited :)

I am still working to make all my prayers as good as that one. :)
