November 3, 2014 - Stake Conference and Miracles

Hi Family!

Well the miracle is that the Pimentel Family made it to Stake Conference. Barely, but they made it! Wahoo. We told them to meet us at 8:30 at the church but there was no power the whole night. We called at 8 20 and they weren´t answering so we decided to go to their house. Turns out their phone wasn't charged so they didn´t get up on time! Ah so we were stressing a little that the bus was going to leave us! But they hurried and got ready which turned out great! And we all got on the bus right at 9 when it was supposed to leave. Whew! And it was a good conference. They got to meet Pres. Corbitt and the Stake President as well. An Area 70 also talked named Elder Acosta from the DR. It was a fun conference. The night before we had some youth investigators come to the youth-adult session which was awesome!

The highlight with the family is that they truly enjoyed the conference and Hno Marino (the dad) said he is reading the Book of Mormon everyday because he likes it a lot. They have a lot of questions but we are working with them to put a goal for baptism. They need to get married still though.  Their kids are participating a little as well, though the dad is for sure the most excited about it all which is good. We are way excited for them.

The mission is going well. There are a lot of ups and downs lately and it sure isn´t always easy, but we are very happy about the family we are working with. The other family is not progressing as well. Their daughters and son came to the night session but the parents don´t seem to have made a good decision yet. We will keep working with them though. As for other investigators we have some, but they still need to show more of a desire.

As for the transfers, I am staying with my comp again which I somewhat assumed. Pres. also asked me to be District Leader again.

Too bad the Utes football lost. Darn but sounds very close. Awesome that the bball and football teams are both ranked! Way cool go Utah!

Too bad RSL only got a tie. Sounds like they dominated pretty well.

Awesome that the whole family will be getting visits this holiday season. I hope you all enjoy it!

Really those are the highlights from the week.

Oh funny story is that we met a guy on the road who started talking to us and telling us that after the Second coming only the Russians and Chinese will be left. It was interesting but I guess that is his opinion.

There are a lot of Characters here for sure. Well life is good. Not easy but good. Today I took a long nap because on Saturday we couldn´t sleep because it was so hot and there were no fans. But its all going better now!

I love you all. Hello to family, friends and all the ward members!
