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.

September 26, 2016
Great week!

Monday-Normal pday and had some great visits at night with some awesome families that have a lot of potential.

Tuesday-We had to travel for our zone meeting in the morning. Then we came back and had a normal day. At night we had a family home evening with the stake president and his family with a less active youth named Esteban that is 20 that we are helping get back to church. It went so well and Esteban is such a stud!

Wednesday-We helped my recent converts Jony and his mom Silvia make a garden today. They are super awesome! Then at night we had a dinner with the Gomez family. The family we contacted a few weeks ago. They are super great and have a ton of potential as well! I invited the dad to say the pray to start our lesson and and then we taught him how to say it because he had never prayed before, and at the end of his prayer both him and his wife were crying. So special. They are loving reading the Book of Mormon and love learning about how families can be eternal. Good stuff!

Thursday-Normal day full of great visits

Friday- We helped an awesome family in the ward paint their house in the morning, and in the afternoon we had several great visits with some new families we have met. 

Saturday- Baptism of our investigator Diana!!! It was super crazy at first because my companion and I got to the chapel early to fill the bautismal font and there was a mega birthday party going on for a 6 year old kid going on in the ward no one told us about.... like super big.... they had a bouncy castle in the cultural area.... but everything worked out and we had an awesome, reverent bautismal service for Diana and her family.

Sunday- Great day full of visits as well! 

And today for our p-day we are having a zone activity!! We are making pizza and playing soccer!! It will be my first zone activity in my mission! At this rate I might not even get a second one...
Oh and another funny note about my mission: I haven't talked to/seen a girl who speaks english in about 5 months! So awesome! 

Well I hope everyone has a great week and enjoys General Conference!
