Week 77: Conferencia con Elder Robbins

Buenos Días a todos!

This was the best week of this change for Elder Yohari and I so far! There were a lot of great things that happened. First, I'll start with the conference we had with Elder Robbins and Elder Uceda...

On Friday we had a combined conference with the Lima East mission to listen to Elder Robbins from the presidency of the quorum of the 70 and Elder Uceda and his wife, their in the presidency of the area. Elder Robbins was awesome! He let us ask him questions and get involved in his training like Elder Bednar did back in August and we learned a ton! He spoke about why it is so important to love your companions and how the mission is like a miniature world. Usually when a general authority comes they speak about the Doctrine of Christ or something, so it kind of threw me off guard when he began to talk about that. But it was one of the best training's that I've been in. He taught us that the mission is the best "university" to develop Christlike attributes; like patience, charity, and many more. What we learned from the training led Elder Yohari and I to have a very successful week. 

We also had an awesome miracle happen to us this week! On Saturday night at 8:00 pm our appointment failed us, as well as our plan B, and there wasn't anyone else nearby to contact or visit, so we just started walking down a street that we had never contacted before. We passed by one lady and we felt that we should go talk to her, so we did. As we started talking to her and getting to know her, she took a lot of interest in the Restoration and let us share it with her. We shared it, invited her to church, and and Sunday she came! Her name is Veronica and has 3 little kids, they are 6,4, and 2 years old. Her 6 year old is autistic. She has been really sad lately because she hasn't been able to find support for her son. The ward received her really well on Sunday and she is really excited to keep learning more. She was definitely an answer to our prayers. 

Anyways, it was a good week and I know that this week will be even better! Que tengan todos una buena semana!
