Vist from GA

      Hello Everyone!!

     This past week has been great!! We've started progressing with our investigators!! And this week we have a baptism!! Woohoo!! Its been a little while... but thats okay! If all goes well, I will be sending pictures of it next Monday. And we have some others lined up for next week too!! Miracles in the Lord's vineyard!!
     Congratulations too all Canadians who were able to participate in the dedication of the Montreal Temple! I'm sure it was a wonderful opportunity! "I love to see the temple!" Canadian Pride!! 
      So yesterday and Saturday we had our Stake Conference here in Chetumal. It was absolutely wonderful!! We were able to attend the 3 sessions. The Saturday night priestood session, and the general session after that. And then the Sunday morning session. Elder Alfredo Mirón, of the Area Seventy came to visit us. It was so awesome!! 
      In the priesthood session he talked about how we need to understand better our priesthood duties. And shared some great scriptures too!! 1 Peter 2:9-11 I love this one!!
      Then in the next session he talked about ward council meetings and how we all need to work together to be able to work effectively. And not just making the Bishop do everything. Which is how it should be! 
      Then in the Sunday morning session he talked about many things. Tithing, fast offerings, temple assistance, marriage! It was a little bit of everything!! I love being in the presence of General Authorities. Especially Elder Mirón, he has a great sense of humor! It was definetely not a boring meeting! 
       Towards the end of the session, I started to get a migraine...ugh. It was a bad one too. So I just took my pills and went to sleep, after throwing up three times!! Needless to say, yesterday was full of spiritual events, and some not so much... 
      Well, thats what I got for this week. Thanks everyone for reading this. I hope that we can all have joy as we live the gospel of Jesus Christ. Especially remembering him in this upcoming Christmas season!! Have a wonderful week!
