Baptisms and General Conference

Hola Familia!

This week has been like the fastest week on my mission!! We not only had a baptism, but we also spent all weekend watching general conference and we got to watch it in english.

The baptism went great with Aracely. And through much prayer and fasting, we found someone to join Aracely in the font! Her name is Niely. She decided that she wanted to be baptized the day before the baptism was to happen. Her mom who is an inactive member, said sure why not! After hours of teaching her everything, she passed her interview and was able to be baptized! Also Elder Darrow and I found out that both of our dads (Mine being Elder Zambrano) were companions together! So to make things even better, we had them come up to the baptism. So not only were we blessed with 2 baptisms, but we also had a family reunion!

After the baptism, we celebrated with 10 hours of general conference. I'm not going to lie. I think it is so funny how general conference before my mission was just like a Sunday to stay all day in pajamas and not have to go to church. Now after being on a mission and at a spiritual high, nothing in the world beats general conference, and knowing and having a testimony of the Lord's servants! All the talks were great! I really liked Elder Bednar's talk about the truck story and how burdens can really help us! I loved Elder Oaks talk on how the priesthood is a blessing to both men and women! Also, you can't forget about our relative Elder Ballard. After being a missionary I can testify to everything he said about following up and the importance of members being missionarys! The story about getting his wife cracked me up.

Also this week our zone found out that because we met our goal for baptisms, we will now get the chance to go to the temple this Wednesday! And not only a chance to go visit the temple but to actually be able to do a session! I am so stoked! Also, hopefully we have time to stop at Subway on the way back. Haha Well, I hope you guys all have a great week! And remember to act on and apply the talks of general conference in your lives! I know I'm going to try! Les amo y les quiero bastante!
