April 6, 2015- Week 5 in Mayorazgo!

Well, this week was great, like always!
On Monday/Tuesday, we had intercambios with two hermanas, and I went with Hermana Lima to her area. She is a new hermana, about to finish her training, and she is wonderful! We had a wonderful time, and I learned a lot from her. She is from Guatemala, and joined the church a little over a year ago...but she has been waiting to join the church since she was 15! Her testimony is so strong, and I could tell that every person she meets is affected by her love and testimony.
We also had intercambios this week with... Hermana Gomez and Hermana Olvera! This time I went with Hermana Gomez. Goodness, I love that woman!! Since being companions, we have been able to have 2 intercambios together, and each time, it just keeps getting better and better. We definitely aren't newbie teachers anymore, and it was so great being able to teach with her again. She is incredible! We had a lot of crazy of them being that a JW contacted us in the street, but after sharing a scripture with him, he told us that we are "very smart missionaries" and that he's going to "investigate what we shared a little bit more." :)
This week....we visited a lot of less-actives again. But unlike last week, a lot of them let us in and came to conference this weekend! It was really awesome to meet them, and that they were able to make it to the conference. They are all really great, just passing through things, and many of them introduced us to their family members who aren't now we have a whole bunch of new investigators! I think the greatest was last night... we passed by to see a young man, less active, who has NEVER been home...but was there this time! His girlfriend was there, his sister, his mom, his grandma, and two of his cousins, all of which live in our area! And they all listened and all agreed to let us visit them!
And well, this week was CONFERENCE! Haha, it was so great, wasn't it? I feel like I received a lot of answers to my prayers, and I could truly feel that they are inspired men and women called by God. There were so many talks that I liked... and I don't have my notes to put thoughts that I liked! But more than anything, I know that President Monson is a prophet of God, that God answers our prayers, and that there is A LOT for us to do as members of the church. I know that as we get closer and closer to the Second Coming...there's going to be a lot more opposition and it may be harder to stay firm as devoted disciples. But it's the daily things we do that matter, and as long as we keep our eyes fixed on our eternal goals, we'll be able to resist the temptations and challenges that will come.

I can't believe that it's already week 6 in this transfer!!!! We're super excited to work this week! We're also going to have a couple more intercambios and do our best to find more news!! I love all of you so much!!! Thank you for all you do! Have a great week!!
Love always,
Hermana Smith
