Ensenamos el arrepentimiento

Dear Friends and Family,

I love you so much! Thanks for the prayers and the love. It is felt.

The conference Ensign finally came! I am so happy about that. Finally, I can review the words of the prophets and apostles.

Elder Albertson is awesome. He likes plants. He presented a training on pruning and grafting that was both informative and inspiring. He taught us about the 30% rule, which is that a tree can't survive losing more than 30% of itself. Whenever we try to cut things out of our lives, we need to remember that too drastic of a change usually reverses itself. Effective life pruning means making changes that help us be better, but aren't overkill. Then he talked about filling those holes with fruitful branches. I've found it's always best to replace bad habits with good ones. 

This week we found Jessica! It was so awesome! I had a goal to find a new investigator each day, and on the first day of said goal, we knocked on Jessica's door. We taught the Restoration, our unique message to the world, and she accepted a baptismal date. She came to church yesterday on the bus. That's commitment, folks.

I love you so much! Have a great week!
