Wow! This week has once again been full of trainings and hard work, especially since its been conference weekend.
This week we had a great leadership council with President Russell. Every time we meet with him I seem to learn more and more. He spoke of Sacrifice and I loved a scripture that he shared in 2 Cor. 4: 16,17. Even as we work in His work our bodies may began to go down hill, but the spirit will be even stronger with in us. We thenhad a zone meeting and got to meet with our zone and do lots of trainings and talk about goals and council from President Russell.
This week was full of work. All dayand we were out in the field. From 7 in the morning until at night. We worked all day taking people to the conference center in taxi's and getting them home. It was great as we had a lot of people come to conference. I'm sure they felt the spirit as we heard the words of our beloved prophets and apostles. While waiting for a lady to get her kids dressed we told her that we would be back to get in a couple of contacts in the area we were contacting. It's a cool area with a ton of little houses with a bunch of guys making leather belts, and all sorts of animals like, pigs, dogs, chickens, ducks, cats....haha. But anyway we contacted a family that lives in the house that is in the very back. As we came to the door we saw it was a family. As soon as I saw them me and my companions looked at each other with smiles because for some reason we knew they would be positive. We talked with them and there two young daughters finding out that they have had many struggles in their life and want to change. We put a baptismal date with them and then committed them to church. We were there about 25 minutes. By that time the other investigator had been waiting for us for about 15 minutes...haha sorry...The next day the mom and two daughters went to church and loved it. We are excited to go back to keep teaching them. Our Heavenly Father definitely has a lot of people here ready for us to teach and serve.
Conference was amazing!! I loved every talk in Priesthood Session. If you guys have not heard them, listen to them!!!! I enjoyed especially the talk from Elder Nelson. He spoke very boldly about the need of worthy priesthood holders and the blessings that we will receive as we are worthy. At every moment we need to be ready to use His priesthood. I know, Jaren, Carter, and Dallin, that as you listen to this talk you will find those things that you each need to do to prepare to receive the priesthood.
I attached a picture of us at conference with Lester. He got baptized in February and he put on his new tie to go to conference!! The other guy is Freddy, he is one of our amazing investigators that is going to get baptizedthis month.
I know this church is true. He leads this church through a living Prophet and His 12 apostles. I know that every word that was spoken is true and that it will better our lives as we put these councils into action.
I love you guys! Take Care!!
