#14: General Conference Weekend

Hola!  I really enjoyed General Conference this week, mainly because I  listened to each talk instead of sleeping through them on the couch..HaHa   I was able to watch conference with the other Americans in Cuauhtemoc-in English in a very tiny room.  We squeezed 7 of us in there and Elder Beeson and I  had the best seats the whole time:)  Before each session, we had the responsibility to bring people off the streets to come listen to the voices of living prophets!  It was actually really fun.  Our goal to double sacrament was 70 people in La Capilla.  We had 65 people, so, so close!!!  I definatly feel that the Lord has blessed us for our efforts.  I finished reading the Doctrine and Covenants this week.  I love the last 9 sections, especially Section 135!!!  Boy, it's powerful words about the prophet Joseph Smith!

I haven't received the other package from you yet, only the Greenie package.  Hopefully it will come this week.  I'll keep my eye out for the Halloween one as well.  I really want to send a package to you guys as well, but honestly, I don't know how and I don't trust the postal service.

As always, I love you.  You are my strength and my rock!

My new agenda/calendar for the new transfer.  The only problem is,
that all the missionaries look at it and think Brooke is my nova (girlfriend).
(She's actually married and has a baby now-crazy missionaries-oh the
problems of having pretty sisters)
