General Conference Weekend

hola todos,

wow. what a weekend.

i hope everyone loved general conference. i sure did. guess what? i got to watch conference in ENGLISH. it was SO wonderful. all of the american missionaries gathered around on the couches in the mission offices to watch it from the tv, and of course the elders brought snacks to share. i felt like i was at home watching conference with my family.

my absolute favorite talk was president uchtorf's talk about being grateful and how we have the choice to be grateful.

after the confernece ended, hermana argueta and i and 14 other missionaries went to dinner at elder and hermana esteves house. they are missionaries in the temple and live right behind the temple in a little gated community. they are so so so so sweet too. it was such a great way to ended conference weekend.

also, hermana argueta and i encountered a miracle this week. hermano jose roberto, who is one of mine and hermana infante's old investigators moved back into his house this week. he is 28, and cousins with the herrera family in our ward. when hermana infante and i first started teaching him he told us that he was getting a divorice and that he would be moving out of his house to live with his parents within the week. well, this week his cousin giselle called us and told us that he moved back in to his house and that he wanted to meet with us the next day. we went to meet with him and he told us that while he was really sad that he remembered from our lessons that he could pray and talk to heavenly father, and he remembered that the steps to saying a prayed were in the back of his book of mormon. well he started praying and started reading the book of mormon little by little every day. he told us that pray slowly started to change his life and give him the help and strength he needed to fix things with his wife. he is now living at home and slowly becoming happier and happier each day. his baptismal date is set for this month, on the 26th! i am so thankful for the book of mormon and the power of prayer and the power that it has to change lives. 

i love you all.

have such a great week!
