Great Conference weekend (week 71)

This weekend we had some great stake conference sessions. The adult session on Saturday was filled with the spirit and there was so much to learn. The theme of the meeting was facing trials. They shared a great video called Mountains to Climb. It is a clip from President Eyring's talk in the April 2012 general conference. I loved the focus on how we need never give up and always trust in the Lord for support. One speaker said "Slowing down on the path is not a problem, leaving the path is. We also have the opportunity to help others through their trials and make sure they don't leave that path. We need to help others and offer words of encouragement. 

Sunday the conference session was just as great. There was an under toned theme of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Stake presidency spoke on hope & faith, repentance, and the importance of covenants. After the main session we had a lunch provided by the Spanish ward and then a baptism. After the baptism we had a Spanish session of stake conference. It was a great weekend with lots of things to learn. 

This week we have been doing really well. We have been working on asking everyone for referrals and it has been helping a lot. We have seen the blessings from doing so and we are finding that we are being lead to the people that need the gospel. Most of the time the people we ask aren't the ones giving us the referrals, but rather we see that other missionaries are finding people that live in our area and are referring them over to us.It is a lot of fun being able to look for those people that others have told us to go and see. 

We are looking forward to another great week and one full of gratitude. We are going to have our zone conference tomorrow and then Thanksgiving is this Thursday so we are going to have plenty of fun. I hope everyone else has an enjoyable week. 

With love,
Elder Boren
