Conference with Elder Gonzalez


So this week was really great.  Elder Gonzalez from the Seventy and the Area Presidency here came and spoke to our mission.  It was a great experience and he answered lots of questions.  The whole conference was very centered on the doctrine of Christ.  He also taught that the goal of missionary work should be the temple: that those who get baptized should one day arrive at the temple. 

We have been teaching a family that has started to progress really well.  The 10 year old son D has been coming to church for a while and we invited the mom, S, to come as well.  They now come to church every Sunday, D, S, and last Sunday his brother M came.  We taught about the Book of Mormon during the week and invited them to read one chapter as a family.  In the next appointment, D, S, and M all came in with their Book of Mormons excited to tell us that they had read together as a family and read more than the assigned chapter.  The three accepted baptismal dates and came to church.  Between the last appointment and Sunday, M read 10 chapters and they still read as a family.  We are really excited for them and see them being baptized soon!

We are also teaching a woman named V who is going to get baptized this Saturday.  She's really excited and we are super happy that she's getting baptized!

These last few weeks President Bluth has given us permission to watch the Copa America soccer games (when Chile plays)! We have to watch them with someone were are teaching.  Its been awesome to see Chile play.  They're doing well and we're hoping they'll keep advancing. 

Have a great week!
