Zone Conference

Homemade Cookies!
Bom Dia! Another week has flown by. We had a zone conference this week that was awesome! So the zone conference was on Thursday. We left Wednesday night to get there in time for the next morning. Four hours of driving. We left at 11:00 Wednesday night and got there at 3:15 Thursday morning. When we got there the plan was to just wait until 6:30 at the bus stop. Instead an Elder suggested we go to the chapel to wait. So we walked and walked and walked until we found the chapel. When we got there we all fell asleep on
the most legit wooden benches you could ever imagine. Actually it was alright and nice to get some sleep. But hey!!! I got my packages!!! Thank you so much grandma for the letter that you sent with the package. It really was the best thing that I could have received! I love you guys so much and they don’t have pistachios here so that was THE BEST!!! Thank you again. AND I want to send out a HHHHUUUUUGGGGEEEEE shout out to my MISSIONARY MOMS!!! Thank you so much for my Valentines box, I loved it! Just in time for my birthday ;) But thank you so much to my Missionary Moms, Mama STILSON, LETTS, SHRIBER, WEBB, HARROP, ROBINSON, and GITTINS!!!! WE HAVE THE BEST MOMS IN THE WORLD!!! I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!! The Elders here are amazed at how awesome you all are. My Missionary moms are the talk of my mission.

Our popped volleyball turned into a Rugby ball
After the training we received, we played sports!!! We started out playing volleyball until someone kicked the ball and popped in on the fence with the "security spikes". haha well some of the missionaries said, “there goes the fun”. Six of us decided to do something, we started playing RUGBY.  The popped ball worked out great! It was awesome and so much fun.  We started out playing 2 hand touch... BORING so Elder Stilson changed it to WRAPPING up, yeah and after about 2 touchdowns it changed again to TACKLE!!! Haha that wasn’t the smartest but it was awesome. We had the whole zone absolutely dead the next day but it was worth it. I am still walking like an old man :)

Sunday we had 2 new investigators at church! It was great, we didn’t have to show up at their house and get them to come they showed up at the church on their own. It is so great to see people who are not just interested in the church but they really want the blessings of the gospel in their lives and are willing to do the work themselves to get it. It was awesome especially because they are 2 young men. They are great young men and we were so happy to hear that they want to be baptized. We are really excited for them and hope to baptize them this week! But that is about all that happened this week. We also learned that they have an uncle that is a member of the church.

The only other thing I want to
share is from the Gospel of John. When the first Disciples of Christ were following Him, Nathaniel was called by Philip to come and see the Master. Nathaniel asked "can anything good come out of Nazareth?" And Philips response was "Come and see". This is found in the second chapter of John. People notice that we are happy. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints have a different glow. We are more happy and people have asked in their minds "is there any place that we can find peace in this world?'” In preach my gospel it says that there are people waiting to receive the restored gospel! OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES as an answer to their question "Is there any place that we can find peace in this world?" we must tell and SHOW them "COME AND SEE". We are all missionaries and there are people being prepared for EACH AND EVERYONE of us!!! Just tell them to come and see. Make an effort with their faith and they will find this peace and happiness that we have. I can testify of this and I know that the only thing we can do is to open our mouths and ask them to "COME AND SEE".  In the name of Jesus Christ amen.

I love you all very much, Can’t wait to hear from you all.
