Y cuando nuestros corazones se hallaban desanimados, y estábamos a punto de regresar, he aquí, el Señor nos consoló, y dijo: Id entre vuestros hermanos los lamanitas, y sufrid con paciencia vuestras affliciones, y os daré el éxito (Alma 26:27).

Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success (Alma 26:27).

Great Conference Weekend!

Hey Everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful Conference filled weekend! Just going to throw my opinion out there, I loved conference! There were so many good talks and great advice, but we just weren´t able to see the last session, so we were a little disheartened by that for a little bit. 

This past week our Preparation Day was on Tuesday because that was the day of transfers. None of the people in Vic got transferred, so we decided to go to the Vic Episcopal Museum!! Nothing is opened on Mondays so it was a good change of events!  The museum included A LOT of paintings, sculptures, clay figures, basically anything you can think of art-wise of Christ. A lot of different depictions of Him and what he did, but it was all amazing! I loved all of it! They also had an exhibit that showed off ancient Egyptian artifacts, as well as some Roman architecture. Then they had a historical part for Spain where they showed weapons, money, architecture and other things that were prevalent in Vic´s area over the past few hundred years. But it was good to finally go see a museum and enjoy it! 

This week has been a pretty hectic one. My companion was made District Leader so he has been trying to learn the ropes for that, and we do a lot of work for the branch, like plan activities and call people to remind them of church, AND we have two baptisms scheduled for this week so we have been working with them, (mother and son) a lot. The Hermanas (sisters) in our area have three baptisms planned this week. So five baptisms for Vic this week? Everybody pray and hope! We can do it! 

We are focused on our baptisms this week, but we are also trying to reflect on what we learned from General Conference. Remember that these are words from prophets of God and we should hear their words. 

All is well here in Vic. The sun is shining, people are noticing and we are still trying to find people. But thanks for all that you do! We will see you next week!
