Edwin didnt come to church, so we are going to postpone for a few week his baptism, which is sad but that is the way that the Lord wanted it. We are going to put dates forwith Edwin, Gabriela, and Roberto... maybe. We want to focus a little bit on Edwin and Robertos families.. Sister Douglas talked pretty directly about that in our Zone Conference yesterday. It was really awesome, she is great. It is too true that we are here to do a few things, and one of those things is fortalecer a las familias!! STRENGTHEN THE FAMILIES!! What is the point in throwing people into a difficult situation with all that. ALL CONVERT would have liked to be baptized with their family.
Also, yesterday President talked about the importance of using correctly the Book of Mormon. We went verse by verse trying to see what we could learn from 1 Nephi 1, and it was really great to see how much we can learn!! Also, he said that we need to use the testimonies of the 3 and 8 witnesses, and Joseph Smiths that are in the beginning of the book. Even though people have their doubts, there are 12 people that have literal testimonies that the plates are real, not just 1 or 2. Even though a few fell away from the church and apostatized, they never ever ever denied their testimony of the Book of Mormon. WHOEVER READS IT will know, but those who arent hungry normally will not eat.
The mission is awesome. I feel good. Thanks for your prayers. I took some nice pictures of a hike we went on today as a zone, but my camera cable decided to stay in the house. I hope that all keeps going well and I cannot wait to hear about Northwood Girls Basketball DESTROYING THAT TEAM THAT THEY ARE GOING TO PLAY IN CIF THIS WEEK!!!
ONE TEAM ONE HEARTBEAT-- NORTHWOOD BASKETBALL
