Last Conference of the Mission!!!!


So the last conference I watched on the mission has now come and gone and I can say the next conference I will enjoy in the good ole USA. So we watched conference at our local chapel and it was through the Internet. Lets just say the Internet was not that good. It fell through a few times during the transmission and I had to watch it in Portuguese so it wasn’t quite as good. I hardly got to hear Elder Scotts talk cause the Internet fell through during his talk and it was mostly in Spanish for some reason or another. At least I can understand a good bit of Spanish due to the Portuguese. But still conference was really good despite the trials we had with Internet and what not. My favorite talk was probably from Neil L. Anderson. It really elaborated how our biggest challenge in life is self-control and how we control our bodies. As I teach more and more people about the commandments I can see that all sins are related to our bodies in some form or another. This is due to the fact that we are fallen creatures but we do have the power to overcome this state and learn self-control through the atonement of Jesus Christ.

But conference really was the highlight of the week. We had to go to Sorocaba one day for a mission council due to the fact that most of the zones are now in the interior and not in the capital with the new mission divisions. But it was neat to get to go back there. But that is about all that happened this week. Sadly we didn’t have a baptism even though we had one planned. But this week for sure there will be baptisms!!!! We have one young woman who was a member reference who went to three sessions of conference and really loves the church. We are excited for her! Also please remember to do what the prophets and apostles are asking us and at least pray to show the church to one person before Christmas! I love you all and hope you all have a great week!!!!
