Loving Zone Conference

Another week in the mission field. I now have less than a year to go in my mission. (I still don´t complete a year until the 27th) It was a very humbling thought. There is still a lot to do and even more to become.

We had our Zone Conference on Tuesday of this week. I love Zone Conferences. I always feel good after them. We talked a lot about "Él es la Dádiva" as well as important aspects in missionary work. The day of the Zone Conference was also the day when I hit the "one year to go" mark. After the conference and in a long bus ride back to Yojoa, I felt good and reanimated to be patient and do the Lord´s will.

Nevertheless, after the conference we still had some difficulties in our area. Our baptism for this upcoming week will likely fall because the mom, a former investigator, is not giving permission. We are doing what we can. We fasted, gave service this morning, and we are going to watch the Joseph Smith movie this Wednesday so that her heart will soften.

We had some good lessons and finding experiences as well, but nothing out of the ordinary. We had an interesting VAP last night (visita con amor y poder). Last night, things were falling so we visited with a less-active member. When we showed up, he was already bien bolo and his wife was cooking dinner. We asked if we could watch the "Joy to the World" DVD, not to teach Laboriano because his mind wasn´t all there, but to invite the spirit. It was a good visit. A little funny at times because he would say things and try to imitate singing like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, but it animated him and the wife and the child.

Well, that´s all I have this week. Cheque!
