Hey everyone! Hope it was an awesome week this past week, we had a great one down here.
The highlight was definitely general conference, it's always a privilege to hear from God's servants, their messages are truly inspired.
We had an awesome week as we were able to find 8 new investigators, and teach a bunch of our current progressing ones! Abdi, who will be baptized soon came back from L.A. And is still excited about his baptism and the gospel in general, which is awesome because sometimes people leave and come back and lose the fire they once had. He's an awesome kid and is just praying to be ready this Saturday, and if not, the following Saturday. We also started teaching his little brother Pedro, who is 14. It was cool because he really hasn't shown interest at all, but yesterday when we came by to visit their mom Brenda, a recent convert. He just asked us "How can I be baptized?" We were like we can show you and we were able to share the restoration with him. He's a good kid. It's going to be a little challenging to him go to church because he spends the weekends with his dad in another city, so keep him in your prayers so that we can find a way to bring him to church! But it's really cool to see how the gospel is changing Brenda's family slowly but surely.
General conference was AWESOME! Unfortunately none of the investigators who had committed to come came, so that was a little sad, especially because we worked SO hard to take every obstacle out of their path. But it was great anyway because it's always good to hear the words of modern apostles. If you didn't get a chance to hear it, Check it out at https://www.lds.org/general-conference
Some of my favorite talks were definitely elder Jeffrey R. Holland's talk, as well as Ronald A. Rasband and David A. Bednar, Highly recommend those, but all are great. Hope you all had a fantastic week! Can't wait to hear about it.
A little S.W.A.T. action in the Barrio.
