D&C 1:23-24

Heyo, everyone. Hoped you all enjoyed your general conference weekend. I sure did. General Conference in the mission is like Christmas haha. All the missionaries get pretty pumped up. It was a really great conference too! Three new apostles! That's not something that comes along very often. There were a lot of talks that I really liked. I especially liked Jeffery R. Holland´s talk, Pres. Eyring, and many more. If you missed them go check them out or rewatch them on!
Working out in the country
This week was a good week. We had a lot of things to do this week too. On Monday we had a good lesson with an investigator that has an autistic son and it was really spiritual. She just didn't want to commit to go to church. That is one of the hardest commitments sometimes. Tuesday we had a good day, we visited a sister of the branch that is recovering from a health problem induced by her diabetes. She´s doing well, but I´m sure that when she had the problem it was pretty scary because their town is 4 hours out of Zacatlán and 2 hours away from a clinic. She´s recovering however. On Wednesday we had interchanges with Elder Hammer and Elder Pantoja. Elder Pantoja and I were in our area working with my comp in the area of Elder Hammer. We had a really long day of appointments falling through. We were walking around from lunch until we finally had a lesson at about 8 in the evening. It was a long day but we had a lot of contacts.

Thursday we ended our interchanges and had interviews with President Nelson in Chinaguapan. They were good. Also while we were waiting we went to a nearby catholic church with a virgin that is 13 meters tall. Es gigante! We also had some good appointments in the night with Karen and some new investigators. On Friday we moved into a different apartment because our old one is the branch Presidents and he wanted it back haha. So we spent the whole morning doing that but now we´re good and settled into our apartment which is a little farther out in our area. However it´s OK because there is a really good panaderĂ­a (bakery) nearby! And on Saturday and Sunday we enjoyed general conference! However our investigators didn't show up this week. :( Also today we played pool in the morning which was fun. Well, everybody have a good week!

D&C 1:23-24 - That the fulness of my gospel might be proclaimed by the weak and the simple unto the ends of the world, and before kings and rulers. Behold, I am God and have spoken it; there commandments are of me, and were given unto my servants in their weakness, after the manner of their language, that they might come to understanding.
