"A few things!"
I don´t have much patience to write much today... just wanted to say a few things about General Conference!
Possibly one of my new favorite apostles...if you are a woman and didn´t hear it saturday morning you need to find his talk and read it right now...all men need to read it too! its pretty amazing!!!!
Also the last session...i forget his name but he was one of the seventy that spoke before Elder Holland...the talk about 'to do' and 'to be' whew! I learned a lot from that talk!
"Awesome Things about..." There are a lot of pretty awesome things about being a missionary during general conference...
One: I didn´t fall asleep during the Sunday morning session of Conference because i went to bed the night before.
Two: It felt pretty good to be off the hook (at least for now) when they talk about how you need to be married or at least dating...whew!
I learned more from this general conference that any other general conference i have ever listened to. i did get to listen to it in English. We had a gringo party in a small room by the bishops office. it felt weird cause i was the only sister in there. but it was fun.
we had the baptism of Yeldy inbetween sessions of conference on Sunday.
it was crazy because we started the program and when it came time for her to be baptized, Elder Winters (our District Leader) had lost the key to the baptisimal font!!!!! so Kerin (the guy performing the baptism) jumped over the glass banister thing, into the font to open the door...that was definately a baptism she will never forget!
The work is moving we have a TON of positive investigadors and we are going to have to work really hard to help them progress!
We've been focusing a lot on the things they have to do and not enough on the way they have to be. so my goal is to not just get them baptized, but to help them become converted to the path...
