Well, also this weekend we had the wonderful privilege to listen to all the sessions of General Conference, and it was amazing!! We heard so many wonderful talks from the prophet and all the apostles, and all the wonderful general authorities. I really enjoyed all the sessions and as gringo missionaries, we were able to go to another room and watch it in English, so I could fully grasp all the Gospel topics of Conference. But many topics were talked about, but a few jumped out at me.....especially families, marriages, and enduring to the end by accepting the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Saturday, almost all the talks were about strengthening families and creating a strong Gospel centered home. And another thing, that when I get home, the apostles have said that I need to get married quick and create a family centered upon the teachings of the Gospel. So I will try my best AFTER the mission....hahaha. But overall, the talks were amazing and it was the best opportunity to listen and sustain all of our wonderful leaders of the church and I cant wait again until October to listen again!!
Also before we went to Cusco to watch conference, we had the chance to hang out with our little branch of Urcos and have a wonderful branch activity. So the whole branch, a whopping 60 came out for this activity, we all went to Huaraypata, a small little pueblo out of Urcos. And all we did was have a bunch of food so lovingly prepared by all the sisters of the branch and we played a bunch of games to have fun. Volleyball, dodgeball, relay races, and many other fun games. It was a great time to hang out with all the members, friends, and have a good time to celebrate all the Easter week. So we also as the missionaries talked about the new initiative of the church, Because He Lives. To remind all of us the importance of Jesus Christ in all the time we have, not only for Easter or Easter Sunday, but to remember his resurrection and Atonement for all the children of God. And I am so glad I can testify of the truth and power of the Atonement in our lives, as we can repent and be saved upon the everlasting sacrifice of our Savior. It was a wonderful week to remember the Savior and all he has done for us, but we all need to do this each day, each week, and not just for the convenience of Easter.
Well I hope all have a wonderful week to come, and all had a great time this week with General Conference and the wonderful Easter season! Love you all, until next week!
