Sunday (Day 6)

Sunday morning we met up with a few missionaries. I wish that I could met all the missionaries in the mission. If only there was a mission confrence while I was here!

Sunday morning we went and listened to my dad speak. This is a picture of the Zone Villa De Las Flores after the confrence was over.

During Stake Confrence, my parents asked Elder Romney and Elder Bischoff to translate the entire two hour confrence for me and my sister. They did soooo good!! Elder Romney translated for me and I leaned over during the middle and told him I was feeling the spirit so he must be doing a good job :) They were both amazing!

I am AMAZED at the musical talent in this mission. During Stake Confrence there was a special musical number done by the missionaries. Elder Bischoff sang, "I Know My Redeemer Lives." Elder Jensen played the piano and Elder Merlin played the violin. Elder Jensen played the piano for the entire Stake Confrence...even for the choir.

The Mexican children LOVED my little nephew!

Sunday afternoon, we were able to go to a baptism of 8, but we were a little late getting there because we were coming straight from Stake Confrence so I wasn't able to get pictures of those being baptized, but these are pictures after the baptism.

Sunday evening we had the opportunity to meet the zone of Industrial at the temple and tour the visitor center with 20 of their investigators. That was awesome!! I wanted to take pictures, but the spirit was so strong so I decided to not pull away from the spirit. One of the investigators was a family of four that the missionaries had met 4 hours before the tour. As the sister missionary was showing them all the different languages the Book of Mormon was translated in, this sweet woman raised her hand and said, "what is that book?" The sister missionary told this lady that the missionaries would come to her home and teach her all about it. At the end, they showed the movie "On The Way Home." It was neat to see missionary work happening right before my eyes. After the tour, we went back to a church and witnessed the baptism of eight wonderful people. It was amazing!!

After the baptism, we were able to meet the Zone of Industrial. My dad spent a minute talking to all the missionaires and telling them what a good job they are doing and giving them some instruction. What a fun day!
