The week of meetings...
As the tittle says we had a long week of meetings. Between exchanges and meetings i really only got to do actual mission work in my area for about 12 hours this week. So needless to say numbers were low and got chewed out by the Zone Leaders. But its what ever, we have a good plan for this week so we are just ready to kill it.
General conference was great! watched about half of it in Spanish, i find it so neat to be able to understand in two languages. There were very many talks about a wide array of topics but thee i really saw were the sacrament, honoring the priesthood leaders, and of course obedience. All awesome topics that we can all apply more deeply. But the talk i liked the most given by Jorg some weird name. He basically said 6 things we need to do. I liked it because he was so direct and clear and said it how it is. he did not bother to chop at the branches, he just cut down the whole tree. He told everyone to stop making excuses and stop justifying. just take responsibility. he said to choose to be obedient because you love God. and other things. But it was a great talk and i learned allot. All I learned is in my study Journal but i forgot it. So you'll have to look it up.
Sister Martinez is still progressing very well. We were able to finish up the plan of salvation and when we had called her on Saturday night to see if she could come to conference she said a member had already called her and was going to come by. Solid member work. So she did come to conference and liked it. She even brought some food to bring for in between sessions. It is so cool to see her desire and willingness to change and follow God in the correct way. We also had asked her is she believed Joseph Smith was a prophet and said " Yes, why else would God and Jesus appear unto him if he was not a good person" So that was cool. She is still going good to be baptized on the 18th. So please keep her in your prayers.
Also as a sad news, the mission president has now said we have to many Spanish missionary's and no where to put them so they have started switching some English. Im sure im safe because i have been out so long but its sad to see that some people lose all their hard work because there is nowhere to go.
Con Mucho Amor
