So Many Referrals....So Little Time!!

Hey guys!

We had a great week and lots of experiences with the spirit with members. It's really neat seeing members receive the courage to share with others the joy they know and the truth that they are blessed to have. We have so many references that it's been a struggle to talk with all of them. Good stuff. We will focus more on being able to talk with all so we can invite the spirit with them and help them progress in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

We also had a great Stake Conference on Sunday! It was a big broadcast to all the stakes and the speakers included Sis. Stephens from the Relief Society Presidency, Elder Clark from the Seventy, another elder from the seventy whose name escapes me, and Elder Richard G. Scott from the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. They are gave heart-felt talks and the spirit was strongly present in the meeting. Here are some things that were said that really stood out to me:

"Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm." quote by Winston Churchill
"Enduring to the end means getting up every time we fall down."
"Faith and fear cannot exist together."

Some of the themes shared were about the sacrament, centering ourselves on Christ, the importance of family home evening, and the blessings of marriage and the temple. It was a truly inspiring Stake Conference. 

But, we are doing great and will continue to do so. I love you all! Have a great week!

¡Ten fe y se obediente!

Todo mi amor,
Elder San Diego

These are some of the altars of offerings they make in Mexico for  Day of the Dead.
The belief is that their loved ones that are dead come to visit on that day so they put out pictures of dead loved ones and also put out some goodies or food that that person loved while they lived,
and the people here say the spirits come and "eat the food".  Nice tradition.
