WOW!!!!!! thats about all i can think of when i think about general conference! it was so good and so inspiring! what did you all like about conference!?
well i want to share some thoughts about conference..but first i will give a little bit about my week! the week was pretty normal for the most part! the only difference is on thursday we have a "motivational conference" in San Marcos again! we had to take a test on Preach My Gospel! it was a lot better than the last test i took thats for sure! but i still need to study ;) i love preach my gospel so much! but we also had the oportunity to watch one of my favorite movies of all time, "Remember The Titans" it was so cool because afterwards president compared us to the movie! it wasnt a perfect match but we all understood! IF WE ARENT UNITED WE WILL BE DESTROYED!!!!!!! :))) it was a really great conference! :)
NOW THE FUN PART!!! :)
i loved conference!!! it was definitely a different feeling being a missionary but it was so cool!!! our mission brought more than 500 INVESTIGATORS to the conference!!!!! :))))) WOW! we were running around like crazy people for 2 days..and it was great!!!! :) we had 3 investigators who came to the conference and 2 of them have baptism dates!! :) but what was really cool is saturday we passed by this menos activo´s house to invite her and she told us no! but we finally got her to come (its sometimes hard for people to come bc they have fears that ppl are going to rob them while they are gone..) and she loved it! (she was so cold and a little tired during the conference but didnt want to leave! well we didnt think to much about that after saturday..but then sunday morning...SHE CAME ALL BY HERSELF!!!!!!!!!! we were greeting ppl and i saw her..and almost cried! (she is a lady of like 75 years and has had chikingunya and dengue and can hardly walk by herself) when i saw her i gave her a huge hug and asked her how she felt, and she told me "VERY HAPPY HERMANA, VERY HAPPY!!" it was such a moving moment for me bc i saw that eventhough she had so many challenges..she knew that it was important to listen to the prophets voice!!! :)
also some of the quotes that i liked (bear with me if they arent perfect or exact..i was watching it in spanish and had to translate it..ha!)
#1: "many things are good, many things are important, but only some things are essential!!"
#2: "if we dont hear the music in our home, we need to practice"
#3: "Watch and Wait
i love these!!! it really made me realize that everyday is a new day and every day we should work harder to be better!!!!!! :) but something else i realized from this conference is that satan is attacking the families! almost every message was about the family and how to strengthen it! its like our muscles..we might think they are strong..but if we dont use them and strengthen them everyday..they become weaker! i know that our family is strong! i was so blessed to have grown up in our family with all of you! thank you for your examples and love! but we always need to be working out our muscles!
i hope all of you had the chance to watch conference, and hopefully you learned just as much as i did!!! :) we live in the great dispensation EVER!!!!!!!!! how blessed are we!? i hope you can all put into practice one thing that you learned from conference and that together we can all be strengthened!!!! i love you all so much and hope you have a great week!!!! thank you for being so amazing!!!! :))))) I LOVE YOU!!!! :)
con MUCHO amor,
