This week was so fun. I felt like all i did was explain to people about prophets and the schedule of general conference and invite them to it. in the end 7 of our investigators went, so we´re happy about the turn out :) My favorite talks were by elder Hallstrom about the difference between the Church and the Gospel. and how it´s possible to be active in the church but not the Gospel. I love that, because sometimes going to church can turn into a routine; the truly important part is if we´re living the basic parts of the Gospel in our daily lives! The part that impacted me most were President Monson´s talks. When he was ending conference and said to fix problems in the family NOW, i loved it. I love my family.I felt like there was a ton about the family in conference. I´ve realized how grateful i am for my family now that i´m here away from them and with lots of families with problems!
The zone is doing great. We are finally baptizing more, so everyone´s happier and excited about the work. This week some of our investigators accepted baptismal dates! Eva, a mom, went to church last week and when we visited her she told us that she knows the church is true! From one week! That´s the difference in the true church. She accepted a baptismal date for the 14th. We might have problems with the word of wisdom with her, but i´m excited to work with her and her family. Also, José and Elizabeth, a 60ish year old couple, accepted to be baptized the 14th, too! There´s still lots of work to do, but we´re finally going to have baptisms here in Pomalca. This week elder Cox and i knocked a lot of doors in jehova´s witness territory. We got a few harsh rejections- the best was from a catholic man though. i was talking with his grand daughter in the door and he said from behind that they don´t have time right now. I said ok, when can we come back to share our message with you then? he said oh, we´re pretty much never here in our house. So, i started inviting him to general conference but he interrupted me and said to be honest we´re catholics and can´t listen to you, now move on. Here the people are generally so nice, so it´s rough when they are like that. But we´re having success and loving out rime here in pomalca.
As for easter plans.. there aren´t any! just working and testifying about the atonement as always! I love my job :) Hope everyone´s happy at home.
