Week 37 Izalco District, El Salvador--April 4, 2016

California Knows How to Party!

Heyyyyyyyyy! So this week a whole lot happened and it was great! First things first this last week marked the end of the cambio and, surprisingly, we got cambios! I stayed here in San Julián but elder ramos left for Lourdes (another zone). But now, my new comp is elder kaufusi! We both couldnt believe it! Back in layco we would always joke about when we would one day be companions but now its real. in case i never mentioned it in an earlier email, he is also from LA (Rancho Cucamonga) so we have great times being from the same city (more or less). we went the first couple days just repeating "man i cant believe we´re comps right now". its been fun. so we have been working super hard to get to know our huge area better. we have already found a new investigator to be baptized this month and are continuing to work with Javier and Katerin to help them get married and baptized in the next couple of weeks. Also, of course we had the huge blessing of watching conference this weekend as well. It was so good! I hope all of you guys were able to watch conference and if there is anything that you missed, go back and watch it! On Saturday we had the APs come and lend us a computer and a projector to watch conference here in San Julián and then on sunday we went to sonzacate with the branch. it was a great experience the two days. I think the general theme of this conference was on the family with an emphasis on the temple. I loved that. There were a lot of great things that i learned about the family that i know will help me a lot in the future. lots of great things to do like family prayers and types of family counsels just so we can have a strong, loving family. bless my dear mother who for years tried to implement family prayers and scripture study with us malcriado niños. now i understand the importance. There were so many talks that I loved but I especially loved the talk from Elder Snow on saturday. his talk was about humility. i loved how he talked that how we in our lives need the Lord much more than we are willing to admit sometimes. But if we humble ourselves and rely on Him, we will be even more blessed when the iminent trials of humility come our way. I love all of you so much and am grateful to hear from you often. Have a great week!
