In other exciting new, this week we had our always exciting ward conference here in Guadalupe, preceded by three days of activities. In our ward conference you'll be happy to know that only one member opposed the Bishop in the sustaining votes. We're making good progress. I'm sure it's a problem in the whole world, but man, here in Guadalupe there's a lot of members that need to get a testimony that their local leaders are called by God. There were several members that boycotted the ward conference because they didn't want to sustain their leaders.. oh brother, you showed them. I personally am very grateful for the local leaders in Alpine, talk about super awesome!
Anywho, other than that the work continues here in the Aguascalientes mission. Jeovanni is still going strong, and the Solis family is progressing towards being baptized, actually they had a baptismal date for this coming Saturday, but Satanás foiled our plans by distracting the Solis family with the 16th of September, and tempting them to not go to church. Womp, womp, womp. So hopefully they'll be ready to go after General Conference.
This week I have been studying our heritage, and I'm amazed by the example of the pioneers, I'm especially amazed by all the sacrifices that they made in order to establish Zion. Brigham Young showed up to Kirtland without a pair of shoes or pants to his name. And I think there's a lot we can learn from their example in order to be able to establish Zion in our lives. Small sacrifices for the Lord's sake bring great blessings. Just think about that, the next time you feel a little selfish, upset, or confused. And have a great week!
Oops, no action shots this week
