Holyyy what a great week.
This week we had zone conference again, I always love it - I learn so much about what I need to do better as a missionary. We learned about how to better our teachings on the plan of salvation aka the plan God created for us, and I am grateful for the guidance on how to better teach that amazing message.
We have been working with our investigators, to better get them to understand the important things they need to do in this life. Lisbeth, the mom of Miley who I take a lot of pictures with, is GOING TO GET MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhh if you can't tell, I'm really excited. Haha, so many people here aren't married and don't have a desire to get married, but Lis understands WHY people should get married. I also know how important it is to get married - the blessings truly come inside marriage. I have seen the blessings my family has received from my parents decision to get married. So yeah, we are working on that with Lis this week to get her papers together for that.A
lsoooo okay so here in Perú, every 5 years they have elections, and they are always on a Sunday - no one can work, and it is illegal to congregate as a religion sect, and it is mandatory to vote or else they get a huge fine. Anddddd election day fell upon the day of yesterday, which happened to be General Conference. So we weren't allowed to open the chapel yesterday to watch general conference. But my comp and I were able to watch General Conference at our bishop's house yesterday, and I was absolutely in AWE of the amazing sessions. If any of you haven't watched it, WATCH IT RIGHT NOW. It was life changing.
I truly know that Russell M. Nelson is a true, and living prophet here on the earth. As President Nelson talked, I just stared at him, absolutely amazed and thinking how Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ really do talk to him in this day to direct and guide us. I know that Christ is at the head of this church, directing us through Pres. Nelson.
President Nelson also announced 12 NEW TEMPLES! Isn't that just amazing? He said how our need as people on the earth to be in the Lord's holy temples has never been greater. For those of you who have access to a temple, make it a habit to go regularly! I miss going to the temple and the peace that is found there.
Well, this week really was amazing. We have transfers tonight, so I will update you all next week if I change areas or companions, but I just want to leave you all with my surety of this church, that I truly know that our Heavenly Father is there. In General Conference the apostles talked a lot about the peace we can find in Christ and in the Gospel - no matter your circumstance, and I testify of this. I know that Joseph Smith truly did see God the Father and the Son in the year 1820, and I know that the Book of Mormon was written through prophets of God. I love this Gospel, and I am thankful for the opportunity to have it in my life.
I love you all, have a great week. Keep praying, and if you aren't praying as of right now, PRAY! I promise you, God listens.
