Mission Week 33

April 2, 2018

Dear Family and friends,

This week with General Conference and all was spectacular!!!! I just loved the talks, the changes, the Solemn Assembly, the music, hearing a Prophet, and especially being turned towards the Savior in this new period of time in the Church!!! I´ll be completely honest, I don´t have a favorite talk, but I will say that with not having an ideal Easter and hearing Elder Uchtdorf´s talk made the day a million times better! That talk was really powerful and I could just see the Savior standing before the wicked Jews in that time period. What a blessing with the Temple in Russia right? It´s crazy!!

Anyways, for this week, we were working more with the Gonzales family. Sadly, they couldn´t make it to Conference, so we´ll see with this Sunday getting them to church. They need to go; this family is gold! Also, we found some great people on Tuesday!!! In all honestly, I think it was a miracle, because we were walking around all day getting rejected like 12 times.... I guess I can understand. Panama was playing a pre-game to the World Cup, and honestly, if I wasn´t a member, would I really let two white missionaries come into my house? Haha anyway, these people were awesome, because the mom was a widow and she totally said for us to come back the next day!! Also, we met with a family from Venezuela; they are so nice despite all the terrible things that are happening in their country! We taught them some English and a little about the Gospel! We´ll see how it goes! Then, on Wednesday we met with Hermana Rivas. We had a baptismal date with her last week, but said she didn´t feel ready. We asked the help of a member, so she could be a little more comfortable with the subject! I can honestly say that this member was sent from God, because she added such a strong witness being a convert herself! She definitely helped the sister to see that she needed to be baptized as soon as possible and now she is super excited :)

Thursday was just a usual work day with district meeting. We invited a member of a less-active family to baptism and she said would prepare herself! Also, on Friday we met with a reference from the sister missionaries that were here before us. We invited the two of them to baptism, and they said that we would like to start preparing :) I´m super thankful that the Lord has sent us investigators :) He´s definitely always there for me especially in the hard times! I know that if I´m obedient He will send many blessings my way :)

Well, that´s it for my week! I´m super grateful for friends and family like ya´ll! Please remember to do as the Prophet has directed us; search for revelation! Now, more than ever we need to be instructed from the Lord! He wants to bless us with His wisdom, we just have to seek it! have a magical week ;)

And thus it is,
Elder Overall
