Yesterday we had the privilege of watching a multi-stake conference broadcast that was broadcast from Salt Lake and Buenos Aires and covered Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay. President of the Area Sudamerica sur Elder Texeira spoke from Buenos Aires and he was followed by two more seventy and Sister Cordon. Then Elder Rasband spoke at the end.
The messages were super powerful and they spoke of love, service, and of spreading the gospel. I got super pumped to work and last night we taught a ton of people on the street it was super sick. I witnessed the gifts of tongues and discernment like never before, the spirit was with us super strong. Just one of those times when you can testify with power and authority and promise blessings of the gospel to all of Heavenly Father´s children.
Time has gone by super fast! We spent a good part of the week moving so we are super stoked to be living where we do! Super grateful! Got lots of help so as to not destroy my back like the last time. Nicest place I have lived here so far but we are still washing our clothes in the tub! No washing machine.
We have lots of cool people to teach! I feel like we really are helping a lot of people so thats awesome.
The Calderón family who just got baptized are doing really good. Trying to help them because its hard with everything new!
Daniel too is going through lots of hard stuff. His family is all Catholic so he really just doesn´t want to offend them. I understand its super hard so we aren´t pressuring him or anything to get baptized. He is a super nice kid and I know he will make the decision when he is ready.
Thats basically everything. Once again I am just super grateful to be here and to have all I have and know all I know. Have a great week everyone.
¨And it did work for them according to their faith in God; therefore, if they had faith to believe that God could cause that those spindles should point the way they should go, (the liahona) behold, it was done; therefore they had this miracle, and also many other miracles wrought by the power of God, day by day.¨ Alma 37:40
