General Conference weekend was great!

Hola hola                                                                                             April 6, 2015.

Just to be honest I completely forgot yesterday was Easter, but anyway Happy Easter! This week was a little rough because I've been sick, but it ended up being a good weekend because it was General Conference!
This week we've been visiting with our two investigadores that are progressing the most; D. y B.  D. is 9, and his family is less active, but they are coming to church again. We've been teaching D. and getting him ready for his baptism which will be this Saturday, so we’re excited for him and mas que todo my companion and I just love his family.  D. and his brother and sisters and his parents are all so great. They came to General Conference yesterday so that made us happy. Since he’s a niño, after every time we teach, we play games with them and it’s so fun. We've also been visiting Hermana B, who I love so much. This week she asked me when I was going home and I told her in May and said softly no se vaya, which just broke my heart because I don’t want to leave either, because I want to see her get baptized, but we just have to convince her husband to get married… so we’ll see how that goes.  And we've been visiting other new investigadores we have and conversos y menos activos, but we haven’t been able to teach a lot of people because I've been sick.  
I loved all the messages in Conference.  I love everything they said about Christ and his atonement, and also about the family and having an eternal perspective.  I am so grateful for my Savior and for the sacrifice he made for us so we can return to live with our Heavenly Father, and so we can be eternal families.  I also really liked the talk by David Bednar about how we can overcome fear and trust in the Lord by turning to Christ, establishing our foundation on Him and continuing forward with faith.  Well it was something like that, I was listening to it in Spanish.  Anyway it was all really good and I hope you all were able to listen and learn more about our Savior and also about the plan of salvation and how it is amazing everything God has prepared for us.  
The days are going by fast and I’m so grateful for all my blessings and for my mission and for everything I've learned and for my testimony.  If you haven’t watched it yet, watch the Mormon message video “Because He Lives”.

Con amor, 

Hermana Tijerino
