This week was a really exciting week! We had Elder Zeballos, of the Seventy, come down to our mission and do zone conferences with our whole mission. Yesterday he came to the zone of Cerro, the zone in which I am serving in, and he talked to 5 of the 10 zones. It was absolutely incredible! I learned so much! At the beginning of the conference President Smith and Hermana Smith both talked with us about prayer. It was so powerful and I learned so much! A couple weeks ago in an interview with President I asked him how I could improve my prayers. He taught me a process that changed the way I prayed and has changed the relationship I have with our Father in Heaven. In President Smith's talk he said that, "Prayer is work." Sometimes we think of prayer as a requirement before we start working. Sometimes we say prayers because we have to or because we have a lot of work to do. I have seen that a lot in my mission. Where I have a lot to do and I kneel down to prayer because I have to so I can get back to work. But we don’t realize that our work starts when we go down to our knees. It was really something that impacted me. This week we have been working really hard with a family that will be baptized the following week, Jose and Lujan. They are going through a lot of economic troubles right now so please put them in your prayers.
