Hola mi familia!
It was another great week here in Bowling Green! The highlight of the week was the mission tour with Elder Gong. Thursday night we had a devotional with him, then Friday morning it was the zone conference with him. The main message we got was " learn the patterns of the Gospel, learn the blessings of following those patterns, then live them the rest of your life" he us a very smart man and he was so full of love. The dynamic of this general authority was much different from the one from last year. The one from last year was intense. But I still loved them both. We also got to stay in a mansion Thursday night. It was the coolest house! He had a couple cool cars. One was a 67 gto and the other was a 2007 Mustang gt California special. Just wish we had time to take them for a spin:)
Then on Saturday we had a super awesome first lesson with Amy and edgar Sanchez. Amy speaks fluent English and understands Spanish, and edgar speaks fluent Spanish and understands English. So they speak to each other in different languages. It's quite funny. But they are so awesome. It ended up being a 2 hour lesson because they were asking all the right questions. Like we were halfway through the restoration and Amy asked "wait, how do you repent?" And other questions like that. They didn't come to church yesterday because edgar wanted to get some nice clothes for his family before. But we did have a Skype lesson with Amy and also with our ward mission leader last night. Technology is so cool:)
We are also still working with Christian and Amali. We started having lessons be more set up like family home evening and Amali seems to like it a lot more. But Christian is all set to be baptized right after Saturday afternoon session of conference. We also got permission to confirm him right after he's baptized, because there won't be sacrament this week. But we are super excited for it. He asked me to baptize him and elder Hamilton to confirm him. We couldn't get him to want a member to do it. But that's ok.
We had a lot better turn out this week for English class. We had 7 people this time. And they were all super fun. So hopefully we keep growing that pool of students.
Also side note for the Padres, do you remember Jonathan Issac from eagle? His parents ran that preschool that I went to? Well he's here in the mission! He's in training and is an English missionary. But I'll be going to the temple at the same time as him so I'll snag a picture with him. Just something cool I found out because of Facebook. Haha
Love yall! Have a great week.
