Sister’s Conference for the whole mission was on Thursday which was all about being Perfect in Christ. It was a pretty good title to hear because everyone always thinks that RMs are ‘walking on water’ type of people. I even thought that before but actually coming to the end of my mission I realize, “Oh, just kidding.” I’ve come a long way but have MUCH MORE ahead of me. Unfortunately I had to say goodbye to some Sister’s and Hermana’s that knew they weren’t going to be at transfers. Heartbreaking.
One of the best things that happened was on Saturday. We had a mini missionary with us from Wednesday to Sunday night and so because she was with us we were able to get in a lot of single men’s homes. We met with S.P. Little did we know before when we had met the guy about a month ago how elect he is. He’s a28 year old guy from Mexico, doesn’t know much English, tatted up, and goes around town on a bicycle. He didn’t seem too interested when we first contacted him but we gave him a chance. We went over the Restoration with him and I could just see that the Spirit just struck him. Everything made sense to him and he could feel it. After we went over the First Vision he couldn’t stop looking at the painting of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and he said, “This is real.” Melted my heart because he knew it. He said he’s “looked into a lot of other churches in the past, but none have felt like this.”Love Always,
