Week 80: "To be able to hear the words from living prophets, it´s absolutely incredible!"

I have learned so much from President! The things that are different is that we are always with president, he doesn´t like to be alone. If he talks in a stake conference he always asks us to come with. So we get less time in our area but I love it anyway. It´s great working with missionaries and helping them stay motivated. The living conditions are incredible! We have an air conditioner, washer, and dryer! I feel like I have died and gone to heaven! Haha There are 4 people in our apartment and 2 APs! We don´t even have time to workout! We are always traveling or have to do something really early in the morning. On average we get about 4 hours of sleep. We don´t get to see the ocean from our house but we live really close to it though! The thing for an AP is there is no such thing as a normal day, there is always something going on. A meeting of a capacitación that we have to prepare for or a meeting with president. But in the diaro my companion and I talked about the importance of General Conference and the effect it can have on the investigators. I cannot wait until conference, I love conference so much! To be able to hear the words from living prophets, it´s absolutely incredible! The most exciting thing that has happened while I have been AP is that we had a companionship be locked in a house of a less active and were beaten. That was pretty crazy! But they are okay now! We are always on the go! And yes, we are visiting all over Uruguay, last week we were in Paysandu and this week we are doing interviews so we are going to be traveling all over the mission. It´s going to be a lot fun! But this week was crazy! On Tuesday we went to the airport and picked up the oros (new missionaries). That whole day we capitations and then the next day trained the trainers and went to the temple! It was incredible! We did baptisms for the dead with a corto plazo (temporary missionary) because she was just recently baptized and hadn´t taken out her investidura. It was so incredible! I loved every minute of it! I truly felt the spirit so strong! Yesterday we had concilio, that is where we meet with all the zone leaders and we have a capacitación. It was such a great concilio. The spirit there was so strong! We talked about the importance of members in the Work of Salvation! We talked that members should come out with the missionaries not just for lessons but for a period of time. So they can help not only baptize, but also retain the recent converts and rescue the less actives! But it was such a great experience...the spirit was so strong during the meeting, I loved it!
