Conferencia General y Conversos

¡Hola familia y amigos! ¿Como están? Wow. ¡Que rápido fue esta semana!

This week we did a lot of looking for new investigators…:) haha because all of our investigators got baptized…. So now we need some new families to teach. Not gonna lie. Its sometimes REALLY hard to find new families to teach. Especially in our sector. We did a lot of contacting, and had a lot of people reject us. Even to the point where one man stuck his hand up to us and did the “talk to the hand” motion. I was a little surprised! Haha!

And then, our family of gold that we have- the familia villa gomez- who really are soooo amazing and are ready to hear and accept the Gospel….sent us a text this past week and said that they didn’t want to meet with us anymore and that please do not call or talk to them anymore. Wow. It was a little bit of a shocker! We literally had NO idea what happened at all whatsoever. The last visit went so well!! We tried to stop by and see what happened, but when we tried talked to them through their little speaker box outside of their house, they hung up the moment they heard “las misioneras”.

But the work goes on!! Our converts are doing great. Amalia and Michel are doing good and growing in their testimonies. Michel enjoyed General Conference for the first time, and we also got to eat a genuine Cuban meal, cooked by him at the Bishops house! Amalia gained a testimony of the Libro de Mormon this past week! I was soooo happy. Before she hadn’t really read the book very much. But this past week she had a heart exam, because she has heart problems, and took the Book of Mormon to read with her before the exams. She told us she enjoyed reading it, and that everything went excellently well during her heart exams! She told us that she knows that the Gospel is true, and that really God is watching over her and blessing her! :) what a great woman!

Well as you all heard in General Conference, a new temple was announced for Quito , Ecuador! The people here are soooo excited! When it was announced everyone was so excited and happy. Ecuador will now have 2 temples, one in Guayaquil, and one in Quito. How neat! The work is spreading more and more each day.

On a funny note… last night I was praying with my comp before bed, and I was the one saying the prayer out loud. I was trying to say “please bless the father of a member in our ward with health”… but the word for father is “el papa” and the word for potato is “la papa”… well you can imagine what I said. I accidently said “la papa” instead of el papa and so I asked to bless the potato with good health (not the dad) ahhaha my comp and I could not stop laughing for the rest of the prayer!! Haha

Wasn’t General Conference great!!?? Ive never been this excited to listen to conference in my life! Haha. I am so grateful and happy that I was able to listen to conference here in Ecuador. I know that the prophets and apostles are servants of God. They truly speak His words. It was neat to listen to the conference in Spanish. I was a little worried at first, but it went really well, and I was able to understand and feel the Spirit during the conference. I also LOVED the music. You know me. I love good, beautiful music! :)

I am grateful for this Church and that this is the unicá iglesia en todo el faz de la tierra que tiene las llaves de sacerdocio (priesthood). I am grateful for Jesus Christ. I am grateful for His Atonment, and that through him we can find peace. We can repent, we can forgive, and we can forgive ourselves. It is a great privilege to be a member of this church, to witness miracles, and to receive blessings from God. I know that this Church is true and that God loves us, and He has blessed us with families, and He sent His Son so that we can return to live with Him. I love you all!!

Les amo,
Hermana Warburton
