September 12

Hello Familia,

I am doing really great this week!  The work is going awesome! I had a baptism this past Saturday and it was really good. Patrina got baptized and she was so excited about it. This past Sunday we did not have any investigators come to church which was sad. We had one that was really promising that we were hoping for but it didn’t happen. But we did have a less active come and that was exciting. We have been working with his family for awhile and when he came it was really awesome. It was Stake Conference this weekend so that made it even better. We had many talks about building and strengthening our testimonies and how we have to be continually building them. They gave us four things to do and they were to study our scriptures, keep the commandments, attend sacrament meeting and our other meetings, and to associate with good people. I feel like prayer was also included and temple attendance. Somehow within that. One of the speakers said that when a testimony isn’t growing it is in danger of growing weaker. They encouraged us to continually strengthen our testimonies so that that doesn’t happen.
There was also the visiting authority that spoke about the Book of Mormon and the truthfulness of it (it was awesome) but I will have to tell you about that later.
The bike riding is going well. It has gotten cooler here so the evenings are a little chillier. We have been wearing our jackets now because of it.
I know that this gospel is true and that it blesses lives. The lord truly gave us this church to keep us on the straight and narrow path and that it is the way to help us return to him.
Love,
Sister Elizondo
