Week 93: "It usually is a day long but this time we had so much to teach it was two days."

My new companion is a stud. He works super hard, a great teacher, and is really funny! In order to prepare for a fireside you have about 10-12 practices of the missionary choir so it sounds perfect, visit all of the recent converts that are going to speak and help them prepare their talk, make a video containing the videos in which you are going to show to the congregation, and prepare the church with microphones, the projector is working good, etc. It is so much fun in order to go around to meet the recent converts and listen to their conversation. It is such a spiritual experience! It is amazing. The Lord loves us so much that he sends his Holy Spirit to touch the heart of this humble people to change their life. I love listening to their testimonies. This week was incredible! It started off with another Fireside in the zone of Cerro, the zone in which I am in right now, on Sunday. It was awesome! There were so many people that came to it, there were 540. I couldn´t believe it! It was a great spiritual experience. The rest of the week my companions and I got ready for concilio, a meeting with all of the leaders of the mission. It usually is a day long but this time we had so much to teach it was two days. It started on Thursday and ended Friday night. On Thursday we went to the temple, introduced a new lesson, and talked about the new goals of the mission. On Saturday we started off with a soccer game between all of the leaders of the mission. It started a 6 o´clock in the morning. All of the neighbors got upset because of the yelling. But we played all of the North zones against the South Zones. I was captain of the North and my Companion was captain of the South. We even designed and made T-Shirts! It was so much fun! Then that day we really just reviewed and clarified the way in which we teach as a mission. Our mission really needed it. Then yesterday we went with President up to a branch in Colonia to help a few missionaries find some new investigators. But it was a great week! I love you all and have a great week!
