This conference was amazing! It was litterally on a high....a spiritual one that is. All the talks strengthened my faith and testimony that those men really are called of God. They are His mouthpieces on earth. My favorite talks were by D. Todd Christofferson and Neil L. Anderson. Oh and I am too pumped for the three new aposltes. My bracket wasnt a winner, but we as children of God were! I am excited to hear from them and recieve their counsels.
Right now I am in Quito renewing my visa. Im sure that not many of you knew that I have been illegal here for about three months. My visa isnt valid, but all that will get fixed. Cant wait to be legal! Yay!
This week has been full of weird foods and fun times. We had a zone conference with President RIchardson where we talked about our personall appearance, how to sectorize better, and how to cook more healthy. That meant that we spent an hour and a half with Hermana Richardson cooking some delicious food. Best zone conference ever. And, we went to the mamita and she gave us a huge plate of rice and beans. To go with it, she gave us each a pitcher of tapioca pudding. The only drawback was that it was the color, texture, and flavor of pepto bismol... I dont know what they put in the food here, but that one was a first and a last haha :)
The Espinoza family is doing very well. Thank you all for your prayers on their behalf. The dad is not wanting to be baptized yet, but still listens and reads the Book of Mormon. We will keep working with them to make sure they can make these covenants with God. We have also found lots of new investigators this week to keep us busy. So good when people accept the message seriously. We all should preach to feel happiness and joy.
I know that this church is true. I know for sure that God knows the desires and needs of our hearts and will answer in His own time. We need to be RELENTLESS in defending our faith. Now more than ever we need to be strong in the Church. Challenge accepted.
Have a great week!
