Week 20 --- Zone Conference, and other stuff

Squad! First off I just wanna give a shout out to my brother Bronson! It´s his birthday today! He is 21! Que grande! So this week was sick! Literally, and figuratively... So me and Elder Kidd are still goin’ strong, working hard, and most importantly... being obedient! We are still having some sweet success. For example Victor´s sister, Melisa, is doing great, but she can´t attend church, because of problems she´s having with her very Catholic husband. It makes me sad... So we just gotta keep praying for her, and hopefully the spirit will soften the heart of her husband. Also we have another investigator, Eduardo, he is awesome, he wants to be baptized, but he recently had surgery to remove a brain tumor, and now his health prevents him from doing things that he really wants to, like reading the Book of Mormon and attending church. We actually found him a while ago because his daughter, who is a member, asked us if we could go give him a blessing, so these health issues are the reason we started teaching him, but they are also preventing him from progressing. He told us he wants to be baptized, but now it´s looking like he won´t be until these health problems clear up, which is fine, because I know eventually he will be baptized!

Later in the week we had zone conference, and it was lit! It was long, but it was lit! President Goates really emphasized the importance of keeping the Sabbath day holy, he explained that everyone knows they shouldn´t kill, or rob, but they don´t recognize the importance of keeping the Sabbath day holy, it´s one of the 10 commandments, so it´s just as important as don’t kill or rob! So that was something we really needed to hear, because a lot of baptismal dates are falling because people aren’t attending church. So we are gonna have to be a lot more direct with people when inviting them to church, and really explain that it is a commandment!

To end I want to share this scripture with you... 3 Nephi 14:9-11 

"9 Or what man is there of you, who, if his son ask bread, will give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?"

Something that I love so much about our Heavenly Father is that he loves us, and because of that he will give us what we need. If we are obedient, and faithful, he will always answer our prayers. I know this to be true, I have experienced this in my mission. If you ever need anything, don’t forget your Father in Heaven is always willing to help.

That's all for this week! Love you all and I will chat with you all next week!
