Mathew 15:14-16

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Pretty great week! 
My companion and I are really excited because we have some great investigators with a lot of potential! 
On Tuesday we had some fantastic lessons. One was with Gladys and Agustin. They are so awesome! It went so well!
On Wednesday here it poured rain so hard!!!!! We don't usually ride the bikes when it rains because its bad for the bikes and the mud in parts of our area makes it almost impossible. So after lunch we left our pension and walked to our appointments. We had like 5 lessons planned but no one was home!!!! When it rains here everything shuts down. No one goes to work or school but for some reason no one is ever home either which doesn´t really make sense but whatever... It was so frustrating!!! By the end of the day when we were walking back home I just looked at my companion and I couldn´t stop laughing. We both looked so pathetic. We were absolutely soaked from head to toe for like 5 hours just walking around outside all day. It was a struggle haha. 
On Thursday and Friday we were able to get in contact with a lot of people we hadn´t been able to see in a while and it was awesome. 
Then on Saturday and Sunday we had General Conference! It was so great but the best part was that Gladys and Agustin came with us to the morning session on Saturday. We watched it in another chapel that is in our zone so we met up with them in the morning on saturday and took a bus for like 40 minutes to get there. It was so nice to have them there but the whole time I was so stressed that they were liking it and that they understood everything haha. I am not quite sure how much they got out of it but they said they liked it!! They started freaking out during the middle of the session because apparently one of the speakers, Kevin R. Duncan of the seventy, looks just like me haha. But in the end it all went well and my companion and I were very happy with everything. 
The rest of conference we didn´t have any investigators but we were able to watch it in English! It was so awesome! The bishop in the chapel there set up a TV  in one of the rooms for the American Elders to all watch it together. It was the most American I have felt in a really long time haha. 
It felt so nice.

I hope everyone has a great week!
