La Conferencia General aka Navidad
this past week was so many things. mostly stressful, tiring, meetings, exchanges, more stress, headaches and sleep deprived.
so last tuesday i had a leadership meeting that was so long. we learned a lot of new things that we then need to teach to all the other missionaries. its so scary because you dont want to mess up! so i had to practice that all week..
also i went on two exchanges this week with two other areas trying to help some other hermanas..
then friday was zone meeting where i had to train the zone on how to teach the plan of salvation and invite people to baptism. basically i didnt sleep all week.
but saturday conference was such a delight. it really is a relief to know and feel the love of living apostles and leaders of the true church.
but yesterday was like the best day of my mission. our investigator francelia and her daughters that are getting baptized this month came to conference at the church and brought us flowers and food. i almost cried it was so cute. also a student from our english class came who has never even taken the lessons before. and the best, our investigators Reina and her family finally came to church for the first time and we have been teaching them for months. and they loved it! they are also getting baptized.
we also taught a lot of amazing lessons this week and helped a lot of people feel the spirit and understand Gods plan for us. the work we do really is so important, to make this know unto all the inhabitants of the earth.
