WEEK 48: The water feels magical!

Hello family and friends! We had an awesome week this week and general conference was awesome! It's going to be a shorter email this week because we went on a hike this morning and we are very tired. But first miracle of the week we found a family to go to the Gladys Knight fireside with us! It is the familia Martinez, they are a part Member Family and so this is going to be a really great experience for them! They are also feeding us enchiladas today.

We found a new investigator this Week! His name is Jose and we've been meeting to meet with him for a while but I think between all of us there was some miscommunication. But we had a lesson with him in the park with his really cute 2 year old son and it went really well! He's been through a lot but he really is ready to learn. He went to the visitors center about ten years ago, so he said he wants to go back and remember the things there. So we are going tonight with him! 

And then general conference was amazing as always! I think this is the first time I don't have a favorite talk, they were all really good and I felt like they all helped answer the questions I had. I felt like some of the most frequently said words during the conference were "sincere" and "desire." Sincere being defined as "proceeding from genuine feelings" and desire as "a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen." Another popular word from conference was "repentance." If we put these three words together I think we understand he power of the atonement. When we sincerely desire to repent is when we really unlock the fully enabling power of the atonement. I invite you all to find how you can sincerely desire repentance and I promise you you will have the beautiful feeling of being cleansed from your sins. 

Love you all so much! Thank you for everything and continue to study the talks from conference. Heads up! Transfers are next week, p day will be on Monday, but just so you all know!
