General Conference!

¡Hola todos!

We´ve had a pretty busy week and this next week will be even busier! If everything goes well, five different people could be getting baptized this Saturday. Lidia has been trying to get married and baptized for almost two years now and finally everything is falling into place. She will be getting married this Friday and her baptism is on Saturday. We are so happy for her. The Da Silva family (Maria, the Mom, and her three children Daiana, Santiago and Ramiro) are also preparing for their baptism this Saturday. Last week, their testimonies in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and their desires to be baptized grew as they went to church. They want to be baptized, but they still aren´t sure about it happening so soon. They didn´t make it to the general conference either, so we will see what happens. Please pray for them!

We did divisions in Pirané with the Elders working there.
General conference was fantastic! It is two days where we get to listen to the living prophet and the 12 Apostles. It is really special because, knowing that they are inspired of God, it as if God Himself is speaking to us during their talks (Mosiah 3:13). I learned several things that I want to work on. I know that as we listen to and then follow the counsel of church leaders, we will become the people God wants us to be. We will find greater joy and fulfilment in our lives. I invite you to listen to and then follow the Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson. His words can be found here.

It´s about to start! General Conference in the mission is like Christmas!
Next week, I could be in a different area with a new companion. Transfers are already here! I hope I stay. This is an amazing place and there are so many prepared people to teach and serve. We will see where God wants me to be.

Have a happy week!

French toast for general conference morning! Elder Sears made a sugary syrup too.

In between one of the sessions of conference, we bought a bunch of cool souvenirs in a cool part of the city.

Elder Sears fried the circuit breaker while he was showering. It literally caught on fire and melted!
