This week was AWESOME!
Well, more than anything,was awesome. We had our multi-mission conference with Elder Rasband and a few other general authorities! It was SO awesome! We got to shake all of their hands and everything. :) Haha it was so great! I felt the Spirit so strong, and I feel the desire stronger than ever to go out and share the gospel with everyone I know! I can´t even describe how awesome it was. Elder Rasband told us that the last time an apostle visited Guatemala was when the Quetzaltenango temple was dedicated in 2011, so it´s been quite a while! I feel so privileged to be part of such an awesome event.
So that was obviously the highlight of the week! We had that conference, and then we had a special stake conference to which Elder Christensen of the Presidency of the Seventy attended. So that was awesome as well!
To be honest, we don´t have all that big of a pool of people we´re teaching in our area as of right now. Unfortunately, one of our investigators (Dinet) who we felt was very positive told us she isn´t really interested in attending church in this moment in her life. So that was pretty sad. But I know that if we work hard and have faith that God will guide us to the people who are prepared to receive the Gospel!
In this conference we had, I felt such a strong desire to improve as a missionary and take the Gospel to more people. I´ve always wanted to be a good missionary, but I feel that the desire I had to share the Gospel when I started my mission has diminished a bit now that I have quite a bit of time here. A lot of the things I do (tracting, teaching, etc.) have become rather routine, but the desire to serve that comes from love for God and His children wasn´t entirely with me. But I was strengthened greatly by the words of Elder Rasband and the other general authorities, and I´m starting to feel the same kind of desire I had at the start of my mission. I feel way motivated, and I´m so excited to meet the people that God has prepared for us to teach!
I love you all!
