Want to hear a prophet of God speak?!

Well, this week was our church's General Conference, or in other words, the awesome twice a year weekend where we get to listen to the words of the living prophets and apostles of Jesus Christ that direct his church. For 10 HOURS!!!!! 

We spent most of our week preparing our investigators for the conference, including teaching everyone about the importance of prophets, and how God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and so it makes sense that he has called prophets and apostles to lead his church and his saints in these the last days. 

There were so many great talks it was incredible, but my favorite was by Lawrence Corbridge, who talked about the importance and incredible fruits of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The simple fact is that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true, the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and one learns so so so much when he/she just investigates all there is to learn. I loved the directness the speakers used in their talks. It's time to repent world. Ain't nobody got time for sinnin'. 

Can't remember any really great stories from this week (that happens when it's really, really hot in a small Honduran internet cafe), but I learned a ton from the conference. If anyone has any questions about Honduras or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, send me an email and I'll send you the best answer I have!

And here is a one-minute short version of my favorite talks of conference -- "ask God and He will answer!": 

Bad news: It is super hot now. The hottest time of the year is April. 103. Humidity. We don't have air conditioning. Sweet.

Good news: The mangos are ripe now here so I'm loading up on that fresh fruit.
