|The First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints|
So the first great thing about this week was that we got to watch (most of) General Conference! (The internet went out in all of Lobos Saturday afternoon, so we didn´t get to watch it.) But what we did see was amazing! I loved the focus on families and the Atonement and Christ. If you haven´t watched conference yet, or if your internet also didn´t work, or even if you did watch it, you should watch it!! Look it up on www.lds.org . My favorite talk was on Sunday afternoon by one of the 70 about how to return back to God by reading the Book of Mormon every day every day every day. And he also shared 6 steps to apply Lehi´s dream to our lives--which I LOVED!
The second great news this week is that L- has a fecha bautismal (baptism date)!!! He is an antiguo investigtor of the other hermanas, about a year ago. He didn´t progress with them, but is progressing afull with us! He loves the things he is learning. We started mentioning baptism from day one, and giving him reading assignments from the BOM about baptism, so he had already been thinking about it. And then on Wednesday when we went and started talking about baptism, he said that he wants to get baptized on May 17, his birthday. Which I thought was super cool since he will be reborn on the day he was born! And he came to a session of conference on Sunday! We taught him about keeping the sabbath day holy last week, and he is suuuper excited to rest on the día de reposo!
We also had another miracle this week: We were walking our bicis on a road that is contramano heading towards the church, and passed a couple of people sitting outside. One of the men, J-, stopped us and asked us about who we were and what we do. He has studied the Bible and believes in Christ, but doesn´t have a religion (yet)! The other people were his friends who are Evangelico and Catolica, so they left, but we sat down with him and taught him lesson 1. He said that he is going to come to church next week and that he believed what we were sharing!! This was double the miracle, since the area presidency has asked us to focus on getting worthy Melchezidek Priesthood holders in the church. And he is a man. Which means that one day he will fulfill that role. Woohoo!

WEEKLY CHALLENGE: What did you learn from Conference? What did you love? Share it with your family, church class, and at least one nonmember friend. Invite them to watch that talk with you and share your testimony of the prophets and apostles.
Love you all!! Keep on being awesome and living worthily!
