Semana (Week) 63: Conference, Division, Division, Conference :D

President and Hermana Egginton
This has been a full week of divisions and Zone Conferences! All Tuesday was our Multi-Zone Conference in Chapala with Pres. Egginton and Hermana Egginton and we were there from 10am to 7pm.  Sounds like a lot of time, but when you are there and the spirit is present, the time will fly by.  Hermana S. and I taught for about 50 minutes about finding new investigators and referrals from members.  We did some fun activities with marbles (the investigators) to go with it.  Lots of things we learned this day.  Then, we ate a Christmas dinner and we did our own Christmas program.

Thursday, we traveled in the morning to Morelia to go on divisions with our Sister Training Leaders, and I was with Hermana S. again :) There was a Christmas program this night for the Stake, and they put on a cute program for all of the handicap children in the stake. On Friday, we went on divisions with our sisters from Uruapan.  So we traveled again in the morning and worked with them for the day.  Then, the next day they had their own Multi-Zone Conference in Lazaro Cardenas and we were invited to participate also.  The poor sisters would have been the only sisters out of about 40 elders...haha. It was a very interesting day, with a couple unplanned surprises, but all is well now.  
Elder and Hermana Anderson

We are going to be having a baptism this Saturday!!! Virginia is going to be baptized.  She is super excited and feels ready to make this covenant with the Lord.  Her interview is tomorrow, and we hope all with go well. She is going to have a Christmas baptism!!! Speaking of Christmas, we are going to be video calling our family this Sunday, which is the last one that I am going to be having :( 

I liked meditating 1Timothy 4:12 this week, 

ninguno tenga en poco tu juventud, sino sé ejemplo de los creyentes en palabra, en conducta, en amor, en espiritu, en fe y en pureza.

It doesn't matter who we are, where we come from, our past, our mistakes, our age, we all can be an example to everyone. As missionaries, we are proof of this, because we are a bunch of young adults, yet we work in the most important work in the world, missionary work :)  And this scripture applys to everyone.  We can be an example to every person.  Make this Christmas something special and serve others! Think of ways to be able to serve one person every day for the rest of this year.  This is the way that we can help the World Shine Brighter.

Feliz Navidad y Prospero Año y Felicidad!!!

I always seem to convince the sisters into letting me cut their hair...haha!
