"This week was awesome...It was super fun and super productive..."

The roads are very muddy, due to frequent rain, and dirt roads.
Hola mi familia y mis amigos,

como les va? I hope you are all doing well. This week was awesome! it was super fun and super productive. well i guess ill start with the fun stuff.

Well for P-day we had a district activity. our distict is small, its just the elders from la Florida and the hermanas de El Dorado, but we still had a bunch of fun. We got together and made tacos and stuff and they turned out good. My cooking skills from the coast came in strong for me! Other fun stuff, we started having activities for the young men and young single adults. We go and play soccer and ping pong every wednesday now and we get a solid turn out. we always have like 15 guys which is pretty solid. Im getting better at soccer. I scored some goals. One of them nailed pipe top shelf. It made me kinda trunkie to do thet playing lacrosse but it was fun. Also all my years of training against Dad in ping pong are coming through for me. This branch has some guys that know how to play but I am in second place. I lost to one of our investigators but i got to go win my honor back this next wednesday. Also our pench shares a wall with a church. Every tuesday, thursday, saturday, and sunday we get to go to bed listening to them sing. its pretty funny.

Well for the work... We have been working pretty hard and we are seeing sucess. We have been contacting a lot of people and we have been fininding a lot of people. Less active members and investigators. When i got here we werent teaching anybody but now we have like 3 soild investigators and a bunch of good contacts that will hopefully turn into something this next week. We have felt the spirit pretty strong in the lessons and the people too. The branch´s average attendance it about 60-70 and this last week for church we had 92 which was super awesome. 

General conference is this weekend! For those of you who arent of my faith, general conference is a conference that happens every 6 months. We are a church that believe in Prophets, apostles, and revelation; and in this conference we get to hear from them. I am so excited. Before the mission i didnt realize how great of a gift it was to have general conference but many times during my mission the words of the prophet have helped me. He recieves revelation to guide us in these days just like moses did to guide the israelites in the olden days. I would like to invite everyone to watch it! Even if it is just for curiosity you will enjopy it. (Mom, put up the information on my blog of when the conference takes place and on what channels they can watch it).

Well i hope you all have a good week! I love you all!
