Elder ChristoffersonWritten by admin on November 27th, 2011
Well this was another adventure filled week, we had 9 investigators in church it was awesome and we saw lots of people take big steps of progression. I can´t believe my time is so little now and yeah I think the missionaries in the office didn´t check what day I was going home but yeah it makes perfect sense that you called, I´ll call them too and make sure they know whats going on. Also this week was our conference with Elder Christofferson. It was an excellent conference and it was great to see the entire mission in one place at a time and I was super impressed by his Spanish, how well kept it was. Elder Jensen (presidency of the 70) and Elder Arnold (1st quorum of the 70) were there and it was incredible. We got to shake all of their hands along with their wives. Elder Christofferson did an open discussion with questions and answered them with the help of the other brethren that were present and it formed quite the Spiritual symphony. Whenever they entered the room I knew that they were servants of God, I could feel it, and whenever they gave their testimonies of the Savior they used simple words but their was great power in what they said and you could tell that they really knew. To go we left from here at 1:30 in the morning and got there at 8 in the morning and we were back on the road by 12 so it made for quite a weekend.
Like I was telling you guys, we had 9 investigators in church and we´re seeing lots of progress in our investigators and having lots of cool experiences. The thing is, we should have had even more people! We found a big family this week and we were only able to take 2 of them but I think they liked it and are going to progress and also we had a cool little miracle that we found a lady named Susanna and she has a daughter that is handicapped and when she showed us where her wheel chair was from it turns out that it was from our church! Whenever we went back to visit her one of her friends were there and he was a member! Unfortunately she didn´t come to church but we´ll be seeing her tonight to see whats going on. Also there is a really big family that has one kid that is a member and the rest weren´t really interested but it looks like the parents are starting to get interested and they came to church and when we went by after it seemed like they loved it, I´m pretty positive that they´ll get baptized now! And for the last but not least experiences of the week, we have an investigator thats really evangelic and she´s read the bible a ton and she said she would only come to our church if we went to hers and I called President to ask for permission and he said we could. It was quite the experience, ask me when I come home haha. I think she liked our church though she just felt a little weird, she said she´s really trying to find the truth she´s really got to get down on her reading in the Book of Mormon. I´ve read just about all of the Ensign about the Book of Mormon and its helped me with my testimony a ton there are some pretty awesome talk especially about the one about being the keystone of our religion by President Benson. Elder Christofferson also said that he has a testimony of this gospel thanks to the Book of Mormon!
Well, thats about all for the week, I hope you all enjoyed this letter because its getting close to the last ones! Sad huh but I guess it´ll be good to be with the family again and I´ll get everything worked out we need to. I love you all! Portense bien
