7 April 2014

We`re going to try this again....

GENERAL CONFERENCE WEEK IS A WEEK OF MIRACLES.

Okay, now I`ll tell you why.

This week started out a little bit rough because last Monday I got sick.  And I continued sick all week, even until now.  I still have a cough that`s pretty ugly, but I`m surviving.  But Tuesday, I was down for the count.  But the week of conference, we have lots of rules and requirements before we can assist conference.  One of them is that we have to reach our goals for numbers of lessons and contacts and new investigators, etc. before going to conference... so we had four days to finish everything, and I was sick in bed. 

But on Wednesday we went out to work, because the conference is very important!  The day started out slow, but then we found some miracles!

The first was that we found one of our ex-investigators, Silvana.  This woman is seriously incredible. . She received the Book of Mormon in January, and right now she`s reading in Alma 40.  YEAH. She had lots of challenges in her life in the two months that we hadn`t seen her, but when we knocked on her door again, she excitedly welcomed us back in.  And she came to conference!  We`re so excited to be visiting with her again, and the conference helped her a ton.  I think at this time she is much more prepared to make changes in her life.

The second is that we found a family that has parents that are married!  In Argentina, that is quite the phenomenon.

We ended up having 8 investigators come to the conference this weekend, which was just incredible.  They all enjoyed it a ton (okay, other than the 9-year-old that came), and received answers to their own questions.

The last thing I want to say this week is: ELDER BALLARD.  FIrst of all, he talked about my mission!  Woo hooo!  And second of all, I hope everyone is participating in his challenge!

Love you all!
