This weekend was also Stake Conference, and we had the pleasure to have Elder Jay D. Pimentel of the Seventy come and preside at the meetings. We had four different sessions of conference, including a special missionary lesson. IT WAS AWESOME! Elder Rodriguez and I were able to eat lunch with him too on Sunday afternoon, which was super cool!
One of my favorite things that he talked about was the parable of the good Samaritan, but comparing all of us in the church as the inn keeper. The parable took on a new meaning when we look at it from the perspective that we are to generously take care of those that come into the fold, no matter how sick or wounded they may be. I didn't explain that very well, but hopefully that made sense.
This morning we played four-square during our exercises.....best idea ever. We are going to go pro.
Yesterday we had an awesome lesson in one of our members' homes with the Sanchez family, who is a family of four that we are teaching. We taught the Plan of Salvation, and the Spirit was super strong. Lessons should always be taught in the homes of the members because the Spriit can be felt so strongly! It was an awesome lesson!
I'm going to send a bunch of pictures to make up for my slack recently. I love you all!
1. My green shake turned into a brown/black shake last week. Blue berries spiced up my usual morning breakfast.
3. Stake Conference shenanigans! Elder Rodriguez, Elder Hampton, Elder Aguirre, and me!
4. We are helping out tear up an old house of a woman in our ward. She has priceless artifacts.
