Happy Conference Weekend?
Oh thats not a normal holiday? haa I felt like it was. We left the house on Sunday morning and i saw the Feria (fair, farmers market type thing that they have certain days every week) and i thought, wow they even have Feria on this weekend. Just for a split second until i realized all those people had no idea a Prophet of God was about to speak to the world! Here the sessions were at 1 and 5 and the priesthood one at 9 oclock at night so we did watch all of them. The problem is that here in Batuco we just watched in our building with the members instead of going to the District Center which is farther away. And in our building, we dont have Satelite like the stake centers so we had to watch it over internet and it kept cutting out and pausing but still! Saturday morning we helped President Christensen (branch pres) push his car from the mecanic that was around the corner of his house haha and then we got everything set up with the projector. And sunday morning we also helped cutting onions with him and his wife for the lunch that they made for the branch between session. It was funny because elder halter had never cut onions before and was saying it was the hardest thing he had done on his mission! We were all crying from cutting like 15 onions haha.
I cant believe it was my last conference in the mission but it was awesome. There were some cool talks about temples and things we dont normally here like that talk dedicated to the refugees. In the priesthood session we were laughing pretty good cause we saw the guy doing the opening prayer pull a note card out of his suit as he starting praying. Poor guy was probably nervous!
Well Batuco is interesting as ever. We keep teaching this hatian guy who is pretty cool and the other investigators. One investigator is so close, he just needs a stable job to go to church and take the final steps and he can get baptised hopefully with his 2 oldest kids. Cant believe that im almost finishing but he we go. I give my last testimony in zone conference on thursday because next transfer there isnt zone conference. Love you all and i know this church is true and the only one with living prophets and apostles.
