April 6,2015 Family and Friends!! Wasnt Conference just the best!? It is such a blessing to be able to hear from the prophet and the apostles every 6 months. From Saturday Afternoon, I liked the talk by Wilford W. Andersen, Keep Practicing, about Music and Dancing. The dance steps are like the steps of the gospel but the music is the spirit. We need to feel the music in order to dance. I loved this talk. Then I liked the talk by Dale G. Renlund about the Joy of trying again. A Saint is a sinner that keeps on trying. From Sunday morning I loved Jeffrey R Hollands talk and how we need to better understand the Atonement of Christ. Sunday afternoon, Kevin W. Pearson about enduring to the end and how it is the real test of discipleship and that once we make a covenant with God there is no going back. Then Russell Nelson about the Sabbath Day. He taught that True Believers keep the Sabbath day holy. It was a good conference weekend. I encourage you to choose a talk every week and reread it, re watch it or re listen it to so that we can better learn from our latter-day prophet, apostles, and leaders. Here in Peru this past week is known as Semana Santa, Holy Week. They celebrate almost everyday of the week, but more than any day they focus on Friday, the day of Christs crucifixion. There were many parades in the streets this week and on Friday many people were going around passing out pamphlets about the death of Christ. But its sad to think that the most important of all the days is the day that they dont really celebrate, and that is Sunday! The day that Christ resurrected to live again. We know that He lives! What great news it is to know that Christ overcame the world and that because of him we too can be resurrected. This Friday is our Musical Recital, El Vive. He Lives. I am super excited because I know that its going to be an activity unforgettable. We are going to have it videotaped. President and Hermana Zobrist are going to come. We are going to have a slideshow presentation and talks about the Atonement, the love of Christ, and the Resurrection. The music is really powerful and I know that many people will feel the spirit in a very special way this night. We are hoping to have the chapel FULL of members, nonmembers, less actives, and new members. Im so excited! Denilson is now officially ready for his baptism! He had his interview after the conference Sunday morning. All we need to do is plan the baptism and he should get baptized this Saturday! This past Friday, we had an Easter Dinner with the Hermanas that we are in charge of. We had them all write down the attributes of Christ then at the end have them pick an attribute that they want to work on or get better at. We all went around and talked about these qualities then committed to get better with just this one quality and little by little we will become more like Christ! The attribute that I choose was patience. Every since, Ive noticed that God is giving me more opportunities to practice my patience. haha By the end of the mission I should be full of patience! haha What Christlike attribute do you want to work on? We can help each other become more like Christ! Let me know what you have decided! I love you all! Remember that Christ loves you too, more than you know. Love always, Hermana Flora
