La Conferencia!!!

Buenos dias!!

Como estan todos?! Como les gusta la conferencia?
Conference this week obviously was the highlight of the week. It was amazing! It was pretty fun cause in our mission there are so many missionaries and such a small area that there were about 25 or so missionaries watching it in the same spot. One of our investigators Tino came to every single session!! It was awesome! He got a ride to the church at 9 in the morning on Saturday and didn't leave until 7 at night after the priesthood session, and then he did the same thing on Sunday too. So awesome. He loved it. In between sessions on Saturday we had a lesson with him and he said he liked the talk that Elder Uchtorf gave about how it was ok to have doubts, but that we should come anyways. So he said that although he still has a lot of questions he has faith and believes these things and he said he knows that the spirit will tell him when he should join this church so he is just waiting for that conviction. He is pretty awesome.
Also Kimberly and her whole family all came to watch it on Sunday. It was pretty fun cause Hermana Johnson made a conference game notebook things for Kimberly so that she could do like crosswords and other cool games like that during conference but still pay attention. She loved it, it was super fun.
One of the many things I learned from conference is the need to study things out in your mind before you will receive an answer from God. It is a principle I have always known, but that I feel like I keep learning. Sometimes we feel like if we are living righteously then God should just give us the answers when we pray, but really we must pray to have the strength to study by ourselves and then ask God if the things we learned are correct. I think we can always do better at this principle.
Another crazy thing that happened this week is that we moved!! Just to another apartment in the same complex, but it was pretty fun. Our apartment now is huge! But we are going to be getting roommates on transfers, which is in a week. And we also found out we might be getting a third companion too!

But right now it is just us 2 living in a nice and large apartment so that is super nice :) Oh and we found out that Luz is moving too. :( That broke our hearts, she has really been struggling and hasn't been focusing as much on church things lately. Pray for her!!! We really want to help her realized the importance of this gospel in her life!
I love you all. The work is amazing, there will always be bumps in the road but never give up. God loves you all, he loves me, and he has sent me here to preach the gospel to the people in Mission Viejo, CA! And I love it!

Con muchisimo amor,
Hermana Johnson
