I loved seeing the pictures of the polo team. We spent a lot of time at that pool. Good times!
We spent this week trying to find new investigators, but what I really want to talk about is conference. It was AMAZING! I came away with a lot of things I know I need to improve but I was on cloud nine just having the chance to feel the spirit.
I don't have a lot of time today, so I'll tell you about the experience we had last night. We knocked after conference and a man named Alfondo stepped out of his house. He was Latin, but was more comfortable in English so it was basically a conversation between him and me. And by that I mean it was mostly him trying to bible bash and me trying to get away. haha. But he knew that we were Mormon and asked "How did your church start?" I knew that he wanted me to say Joseph Smith because he wanted to throw down on that, but one of my favorite moments of my mission was his face when I said "Actually, we believe that our church started with Adam." He didn't like that answer. haha. But I was able to bear my testimony that God is unchanging and walk away and it was a really, really cool moment. Knocking into antis for days.
I am extremely grateful for the knowledge that we can both receive revelation from a God that knows us perfectly and receive strength and guidance from a prophet. God is perfect. It's pretty awesome.
I love you all so much! Have a good week! Oh, I'm going to "ponderize" and invite you to do the same. Send me your scriptures and I'll share mine with you as well.
