Week 2 in Leon. Teaching, moving and peacocks?

Hello everyone!

We had another crazy, busy, hot, amazing week here in San Antonio.

Tuesday we had zone conference and were able to hear from our Mission
President and our other mission leaders. The theme of the conference
was prayer. It was so amazing. The spirit was so strong. We talked a
lot about how prayer is essential in conversion. As missionaries we
invite people to pray all the time because we know that no one can
know of the truthfulness of the gospel without first honestly asking
God in prayer. We know that those who do ask in faith with receive an
answer through the Holy Spirit.

The rest of our week was filled with biking all around our area trying
to find more people to teach. We were specifically focused on trying
to visit people who don't always come to church.  We visited one
family who the husband served a mission in Long Beach California. That
night when we were eating with a member, we found out that the husband also

the Mission President are going to reach out to this family.

moving... in an hour. So we rushed home and packed everything.

from years of missionaries that come and go). It is nice though, the new
apartment is a lot nicer and it is fun to live with another set of

This week we saw a lot of animals kittens,dogs, deer, and peacocks. I
don't know why but, there is a neighborhood here that has tons of

The best part of the week is always when we are able to teach people
and testify to them how much God loves them. We visited an older woman
this week and I could feel how much her Heavenly Father loved her.  It
was amazing. I know that God is mindful of each of us and loves us
more than we can comprehend.

Have a great week!
