Zone Conference

Monday, June 25, 2012

This week was great! It was actually one of the most stressful weeks of my entire life. Elder Heath and I had to plan the last Zone conference of Presidente Saucedo. It was rough, I almost didn't sleep, I felt like I was in the offices again. But it was a great experience and it went great! It was sad to say goodbye to President and la Hermana, but they are pretty exhausted. They leave tomorrow and our new president will get here next week. We baptised Angel and Mariana this week, the kids of Jose Eduardo. He really wants to get baptised but still is not completely prepared, but in 2 or 3 week he will be baptised. Last Tuesday a man contacted us and said he almost got baptised in Mexico city but moved right before. He is super escogido and is way humble. He went to church last week and is preparing to get baptised this Saturday. Also Hermana Paula will get baptised this week. She has had a lot of answers to her prayers. we taught her the restoration and after we left a neighbor(or one of the 3 Nephites) gave her the movie of the restoration and she absolutely loved it. We are still trying to work with her husband Marcial but he is hard to get a hold of. God is blessing us alot here in Puerto Vallarta. I love it here and I love to see the blessings of the gospel in peoples lives. In our zone conference we really pushed the importance of teaching tithes and offerings, I cannot believe how big the blessings of tithing are  in peoples lives.  This computer doesn't work for my camera. I had some really great pictures but I will send them next week. I love you all!

Happy Birthday Grandma Clark!

Well I love being here in Vallarta! Elder Heath and I have learned a lot since we were companions back in Xalisco. We baptised Pablito last week. Ed's family got reactivated and he is as excited as can be. This week we had a great expreince with the daughter of a recent convert. She is alsmost17 years old and has not really ever wanted to be baptized, but we really pushed the Book of Mormon with her and she was completely converted! It was a great experience. We are teaching a couple of families right now. One family has listened to the missionaries before but never went to church. We brought the dad and two of the kids yesterday and they absolutely loved it, especially the the dad. He kept saying "this is the place where my family should be." We trying to help a couple get married this week so that Hermana Melchelly can get baptized. We need alot of prayers for her.  We had a baptism and it was an awesome experience! I loved it. There are iguanas everywhere here. I see white people everywhere too. They all love to talk to us.
Well I love you all. Happy birthday grandma!
