Hola mi Familia!! Como estan?!
Okay, so Conference.
WAS SO AWESOME!!
I don't think I had ever been so excited for Conferencia ever before
en mi vida. NUNCA! Holy smokes, I loved it so much. Every bit of it! I
want to know everyone's favorite talks and why! K? k. Just like Elder
David Evans--- during his talk, I was like "I love this guy!" "Look at
him telling people to write the missionaries a letter, and not just an
e-mail! This is great!" bajaja. ;)
Truly though - it was perfect. I was able to watch 3 sessions in
English, and then Sunday Morning Session we watched in Spanish and so
didn't get a whole lot out of it. My sunday notes go as follows:
Deiter F. Uchtdorf: "STOP IT!"
Russell M. Nelson: "Soy una hija de Dios"
Ronal A. Rasband: El Plan de Salavacion?? (I hope so becuase we had
Cecilia Sanchez there with us, who brought her esposo AND her hija!
Julie B. Beck: Sociedad de Socorro? (I'm going to miss her!)
D. Todd Christofferson: Doctrina de Cristo?....I'm confused... don't
know what's going on......
**Cancion del Corro: Let us all speak kind words to eachother-
WINNIE!!! Love you!**
Thomas S. Monson: El Plan de Salvacion- 3 preguntas del alma--
something about Rio en Provz..?
The good news is: That I will be able to re-read ALL of the talks in
about a month! Yayayaayayya!
In between Conference Sessions on Saturday- we went and mowed a lawn
of one of our investigators- Rosa. She is so great. I love her! Such a
sweet old lady that just loves us. She was all ready to come to
conference on Sundee, but Juan wouldn't get out of bed.... It's okay.
Her desire is there!
Then Sunday in between sessions-- here in Texas, or at least for the
hispanic culture, everyone still goes to church to listen to
Conference! It's awesome! Especially because we had Cecilia there, and
so los miembros del barrio were able to help out with getting to know
her a little. Then we had coordination meeting with our Ward Mission
Leader- Hermano Medrano.
*side note: the photos I sent this week are of los hijos de Obispo
Alvarez. They were all matching and I loved it, so we HAD to get a
picture! The little one is Lauren. So cute!!*
As for my favorite talk in Conference...........?
I loved them ALL! Jeffery R. Holland's, Henry B. Eyring's, Robert D.
Hales, Neil L. Anderson!! AAAHHH! So good! My two favorite sessions
were Saturday Morning, and Sundee Afternoon, but I think the talk that
definitely helpped me out the most was the talk by O. Vincent Halleck.
About being able to see the vision that Christ has for us. Because a
lot of the time as a missionary, struggling along to try and learn
spanish, it gets hard at times. I loved that he quoted the scripture
that said, "I will not leave you comfortless!" And talked about how
the Holy Ghost is the comforter. There has not yet been one day on my
mission when I have not been able to feel the Spirit, and to feel the
love that God has not only for me, not only for you. I have felt the
Spirit every day, and es sierto.. He does NOT leave us comfortless.
I've been studying el Libro de Mormon, and el Nuevo Testamento. I love
reading the Bible! I love how L. Tom Perry said that BOTH books are
necesary! It is soo true! Neither book is complete without the other.
Both are clave for nuestro salvacion, y exaltacion. .... (Spanglish-
yo se. Sometimes it just comes out easier en espanol.) But ahhh, I
loved it. Go read: Mateo 11: 29-30
So after we watched all of conference we went over the casa de la
familia Gonzalez to see how they enjoyed the conferencia. All the the
fasting and praying truly paid off! They loved it! Hna. Marta said
that when she heard and saw the Profeta speaking, that she knew that
it was a higher person that was speaking and not just him. Then her
son Giobanni said, "Yeah, she was even tearing up when she watched
him!" Wow. I love how the spirit works, and truly how amazing it is
that we DO have a living Profeta. The other day we were teaching
Griselda y Nicol (10) about our profet, and Nicol says, "Wow, that is
Amazing, I am litterally overwhelmed by how amazing that is!" (she
acts a lot older than 10 years old.. jaja, love her) But it truly is
I looove this gospel, and the obra misional, and CONFERENCIA GENERAL,
all of you! Thank you so much for all of your prayers, and cartas, and
packages mother! I can truly feel your prayers so thank you, thank
you, thank you! Que Bueno! You are all maravilloso!!
Con muchisisisisisimo amor,
