Wow. What a great week!! Well, first off I had my birthday!!!!! My last birthday here in Argentina was honestly kinda lame.. But this one rocked! Pretty much the members here in this area love me. So I had three Birthday Parties!! So basically all the exercise that I've been doing in preparation for the end of my mission just went down the drain. haha.
The rest of the week was fairly uneventful except for this weekend. CONFERENCE!!!!!!!!!!! So as you may know, in utah when the prophet speaks he's on just about every channel. There's a better chance of seeing him when he speaks than seeing the President of the United States when he speaks. So nobody has any kind of excuse for not watching conference. Here, however, all the members have to go to the stake center to watch it. The twosessions were awesome. We got to watch it in a little room with a tv so that we could watch in English. the weather was really rainy and ugly, but there were still a ton of people there. About halfway through the session the satelite signal cut out and we were left with a black screen. One of the counselers in the stake presidency came and asked us to pray. We had a whole zone of missionaries in a little room knelt down each offering up silent prayers. It was a really really special spirit that could be felt in that room. After we had gotten done praying, we just stood up and waited. About ten minutes later the signal came back on!! It was a little spotty, but we were able to listen to some of the talks. What a great blessing in the lives of these people to be able to hear a prophets voice!!
That whole experience is just another testimony for me of the power of faith and prayer!
I love you all!!
