Week 56 Letter April 7, 2014

Hello Family and friends!

This week was a great week as well. The heat continues to get more intense. It has been hovering around 95ish. The good thing though is that we are right next to the ocean. So every evening at around 4 or 5 it cools down pretty nice. It also means that the people give us more to drink and they have given us a lot of water of tamarindo. It is one of my favorites so the heat hasnt been so bad.

We had a lot of learning opportunities this week. On Friday we had a conference with our Mission President. It was a great conference, we focused a lot on prayer and the doctrine of it. We talked about how we pray to our Heveanly Father in the name of Jesus Christ and we recieve our answer through the Holy Ghost. It is a simple doctrine but many do not understand it or how to use it. We have to understand who we are talking to, how it gets there and how we get the response. If we understand this we will be able to recieve the answers and blessings we are searching for.

General Conference was also a great learning opportunity. It was great to listen to the prophets and apostles voice again and see all of the people there to learn. My favorite experience was with Pedro. I talked with him a while before the conference and then he kept telling me how excited he was to listen to the prophet. Mayra and Freddy also came to the conference. They told us how they were really praying and preparing for baptism. We were not able to work as much this week but  it was great to be able to learn together from our general authorities.

This week we will be going to Villahermosa for another conference with our president. It will be great to be with our mission president again. 

Until next week!
