He is the GiftFirst off, I would like to let you all know about the Church´s month long initiative to share the true meaning of Christmas with the world. The Church has created a small video called "He is the Gift, and they want as many people as possible to see this video in December. For your info, the Church has bought the big screen in Times Square, and the front page of Youtube, but... it´s not enough. The church wants ALL members to share the video on facebook, twitter, instagram, etc... Please, share with the world your love for Jesus Christ, and your thankfulness to God for the gift he gave 2,000 years ago.
Elder Williams has a change, and will be going to Puno. I will miss him a lot. As for me, I am staying here in Puerto Maldonado, and I will be training again!! Most likely I will be here in Puerto until I finish the mission. It is a wierd feeling.
Other than that, w´ve had some great experiences. Saturday and Sunday was the District Conference here in Puerto Maldonado. President Harbertson, President Patiño, and President Hasler (the mission presidency) came, and inspired us with their wonderful messages.
6 men from our Branch, and 15 from the District received the Melchizedek Priesthood during the Conference. 3 of them are converts that I´ve had the opportunity to work with (Danny, Sahi, and Mayer)! What a blessing from the Lord!
Mayer, our recent convert, had classes on Saturday, and told his teacher that he had to leave to go to a conference of his church. His teacher told him that he couldn´t go, because if he did, his grade would be affected. He politely told her that either way he had to go to the conference, and walked out. He came and enjoyed the conference, and afterward went and told his teacher that he was sorry. She said that she understood, and didn´t hurt his grade.
I love the Gospel so much!! and I love Jesus Christ so much!!
