Week 68 Letter June 30, 2014

Hello everyone!!

We had a really good week again.  We had a lot of meetings and a lot of good learning experiences. 

This week we had zone conference.  It was really good.  I could see that it really helped the missionaries from our zone.  We actually gave part of the conference.  We taught everyone how to have a better planning session.  We focused a lot on how we could use the Spirit in our planning.  I personally learned a lot from what we taught.  We have had a lot better planning sessions since then.

We also had our Stake Conference this weekend.  Elder Montoya from the quorum of the seventy came.  He gave some amazing talks.  I really felt the Spirit and learned a lot from him.  My favorite part was when he shared a story of him saving his child.  His child had climbed upa ladder but had fallen and was barely hanging on.  He began to scream, “Papito, Papito, Ayudame!” He was able to get out just in time to break his child’s fall.  He then compared that to the Savior’s suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane when Christ cries out, “Abba Padre.” It was like when Elder Montoya’s son cried out, “Papito.” But this time Christ’s Father, our Father, was not able to rush to save him.  But rather for the love he has for us, he had to let His Only
Begotten suffer.  It means a lot to me that Christ suffered for me.  The story that Elder Montoya told really helped increase my understanding.

Right after the conference, Fredy received the Melchizedek Priesthood.  We were able to go and watch.  It was a wonderful experience to see how happy Mayra was for him.  I am so excited that my converts now have the blessings of the Priesthood in their home.

Well, it looks like we should have another baptism on the 18th of July! All of the members are really excited and helping us out a lot.  The work is extremely exciting right now and a lot of blessings are being received.

Until next week,
Elder Lightheart
