We had a blast (week 89)

This past weekend was a blast. Who doesn't love all those great general conference talks? Before I go too far into my email I'm going to apologize for not including pictures these past few weeks. Some of the computers here don't want to accept my card and I haven't been the best at taking pictures. I'll do better this next week.

I loved all the general conference talks this weekend. I loved the Sunday afternoon session and maybe thats a large part due to the talk given by Elder Joaquin. The four of us elders here were not expecting a talk like that. I also loved President Monson's talk in the Sunday morning session. I loved the way he lovingly extended a commitment as simple as reading the Book of Mormon Daily. It carried so much power and I hope it plays a great effect in helping people gain a testimony of this gospel. I think that talk will be a great one to share with others. I also really liked the talk given by Elder Quentin L. Cook to close out the conference. I thought about the importance of gaining experience, practicing and putting in those 10,000 hours to become and expert. I though it would be amazing if we could put in the time and effort to become experts of the gospel or better yet one specific principle of the gospel. I look forward to the time we have in the coming months to study these talks and truly ponder the meanings. 

This past week we started working with this great investigator. She is a senior in high school and really wants to make sure she finds the right path and is able to draw herself closer to God. We were able to get her invited to the home of some members for the Sunday afternoon session and she loved it. She told us that she got her questions answered. We are going to meet with her tonight and we are looking forward to the progress we get to make with her. 

This past week was also our trip to the temple. That was such a sweet experience. Like always I was able to find members there from previous areas and that was a blessing in itself. I also found so much peace being able to attend the temple. I love being able to take time and have great prayers there. I look forward to having the opportunity to attend more frequently. 

We are looking forward to another great week and I hope everyone has a great one as well. Que les vayan bien. 

Con Amor,
Elder Boren
