Today we had ZONE CONFERENCE. The President and His Wife came! They are the SWEETEST EVER!
I learned so much from this meeting it was basically all day and we learned a lot more about our purpose as missionaries! 🙂
We also all got FREE PILLOWS AND SHEETS wooohhoooo
Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to us:)

We also had a lesson with the a new investigator and he read what we left him and told us he watched the restoration and The other side of Heaven! haha SO many people here have seen that movie! It cracks me up! Everyone oh have you seen The other side of Heaven?

Jueves

MY companion has one month in the mission! wooohooooo
We had a lesson with Glasia our investigator and she is scripture marking the scriptures! it is color coded and everything! LIKE A BOSS! 🙂 She is the best ever and is progressing so much! We later taught her about the word of wisdom and how she cant drink coffee. I was so shocked at her response. She basically said- “WHY didnt you guys tell me from the beginning I have been here drinking coffee. if it is a commandment then I will stop drinking it right now.” she put away her cup and we continued with the lesson! I WAS JUST SO HAPPY I DIDN’T HAVE WORDS! 🙂 I couldn’t stop smiling! She also told us in this lesson how she was defending the church because many people are saying wrong things about her. She said she knows that what we teach is true and she listens to every word. She knows it’s the path for her! WOW! I love this gospel so much!

We were so happy after this lesson before going home we stopped and bought DORITOS! haha and as we were waiting for the bus to go home the power went out in the city but we didn’t care we were toooooo happy!
