May 17, 2016  Es que ya leemos la Biblia todo el día (I read the Bible all day)

What's up queridos amigos!!

We had a fantastic week this week. Elder Laws and I are living it up down here in Logan. We've had to drop a few investigators that just weren't quite ready to act yet, but the Lord has blessed us to find a couple of really cool new people. One of them is Luis, who is the cousin of a member that we visit quite a bit. Luis is 12 and has attended church with that member in the past (David Estrada). Luis didn't live with David before, he lived out of our branch boundaries, but now his family moved in with David and so we are working with both of them, super cool kids.

We also started teaching an awesome little family, it's a long story how we met them, but it's Marabel the mom, Jazmin who is 15, Natalie who is 11, Daniela who is 9 and Joselyne who is 7. They are super nice kids and they've been going to mutual a little bit, we are just working on helping them not go to Tijuana  on the weekend so they can attend church.

Yesterday we found a super nice lady named Rosa who we met on the street, we had a great first lesson with her yesterday and we are going to start teaching her husband on Thursday.

We are still working with Veronica, we are working towards the 28th of May, unfortunately she wasn't able to go to church this past Sunday, but she's still searching for her answer and she's loving what she's reading in the Book of Mormon.

Last week we had MTE's which is a training meeting, then exchanges with a couple other zones and then another training and miracle report the next day. I went on exchanges with Elder Thomson who is an English Elder, but we had a lot of fun. We talked to people in English anyway. There's a picture of us down in Barrio Logan.

Probably the highlight of this past week was our stake conference which was presided by President Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. It was incredible to hear him speak and feel the spirit that he brought with him. Saturday he spoke for about an hour without any notes or anything. He testified and taught of the Savior, he talked about His role throughout the Old and New Testament and quoted so many scriptures! He was incredible. Sunday he talked about joy and all the things we can do to have joy. One of my favorite quotes was "Do you want to have more joy? Be a missionary!". He listed so many great things that we can do to have joy in our lives, I have pages of notes! It was incredible. Right before the Sunday meeting started we were hanging out in the room with the Spanish translation group and President Nelson came in to personally greet all of the Spanish members that were there. Since we were here we got to shake his hand and talk to him for just a few seconds.  He asked where we were from and practiced a little Spanish with us. "Buenos Dias Elderes" all in all it was super cool to hear from him.
