Well, Saturday we got to have a multi-mission meeting, with Elder Cook! We got to shake his hand and we got to hear some prophetic words from him! I really liked how he focused most on how we are ward/branch builders and that we (the missionaries) are the message! We have to be warm, kind, and love the members of all the wards we are building up!
We also had a world wide devotional that was based on a world wide training meeting for the missionaries. They focused this devotional on this phrase, “Teaching Repentance and Baptism.” I really liked what Elder Bednar taught about the Holy Ghost and that we need to be worthy to bring that spirit into the homes of the people. He taught that we aren’t the teacher the people need, they need the spirit to testify to them in their hearts. It was really cool and really powerful!
So, in my area we have 4 ward missionaries and our ward mission leader lives in our area as well, so we leave on divisions with them almost every day! Mostly with Mario and Luis Guido. So Luis and I found a really good family that have, up till now, read the pamphlet of the Restoration and have prayed about the prophet Joseph Smith (wow its weird to say it in English hahaha). They almost came to church yesterday but something came up and they couldn’t go… but hopefully this next Sunday they will be able to come. I also am planning to put a baptismal date with them for the 5 of March….. I hope they are the ones that Heavenly Father has chosen and presented to me and that they are prepared for the Gospel in their lives!
Well, I don’t have much to say but I hope this week will be better for you all!!! I love you and hope the best this week!!

¨If ever there is a tomorrow when we´re not together. There is something you must always remember,
You are braver than you believe,
Stronger than you seem, and
smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is even if we´re apart, I´ll always be with you¨
