Well, I'm still here in Guerrero for another transfer! If I'm here until the end of this new cycle, I'll have 7 ½ months in Guerrero! My companion is still Elder Herrera. I did get the package from the Lesters; it was really nice of them to send me something!
With this week being the last week of the transfer cycle, we were working pretty hard each day to find people to teach. On Monday, we had a Zone Conference in La Junta. It was pretty good and I learned some new things. After the Zone Conference, we always play soccer, but this time we played American Football!! It was super fun, but I realized that my stamina isn't like what it was before my mission...haha. And, to make things worse, I was really sore for about 3 days after!!!
On Tuesday, we were informed that we had a training meeting with President Chavez, in Cuahtemoc. The meeting was really cool. President and Sister Chavez spoke to us. Training meetings with our Mission President are always enlightening and inspirational. He teaches doctrines of the gospel is such cool ways. , with great examples to understand the lessons. On Tuesday, he taught us about the Holy Ghost and the Light of Christ, and the difference and functions of both. It was really interesting and fascinating to me. I'm looking forward to the next training with President and Sister Chavez.
This Sunday, we were planning to have two awesome baptisms! Their names are Loana and Yenelly; Two sisters that live together. We actually found them April 2nd after General Conference. We invited them to come to Sunday's General Conference and they were the first people to show up! They were "Golden Investigators". Their only thing was that they wanted to learn every principle and doctrine we could teach them right away. So, each time we taught them, we'd share with them the Teaching Record and before we knew it, we had taught them everything!! We invited Loana and Yenelly to be baptized and they accepted, and even made a date to be baptized themselves! After church on April 24th, they were baptized and you could see in their faces how happy they were.
Bringing people into the baptismal font is one of the best feelings in the world. It makes all the hard work worth it. You can tell how happy they converts are to have the restored gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives. I love the church, and I know that it is true!!!
This week's scripture to "Ponderize" is:
Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise.
