Stake Conference, Visa's Signed Again & Word of Wisdom


Thanks for the video. I remember that talk. It was a good talk and he always tells stories to get the point across. 
Thanks for the address. I´ll send it on the referrals page and see what happens. I have a list of people to baptize when I get home. Speaking of that, is Ryan a member? (Mom-Yes. He is a member, but forbids you from trying to get him active) I´ll get him active when I get home because all of his protests about the church I have scriptures to dispute. He´ll slowly learn some day.

Anyway, gotta hurry and write the letter. :)

Yesterday we had stake conference. It sure doesn´t compare to home, but it was still a great session. The patriarch talked about service and how we can be purified by serving others. There are several scriptures that talk about how if we serve others and God, we can have our sins forgiven and be purified. It was a powerful talk and testimony by someone who has been set apart by an apostle of the Lord to serve in that calling. 

The stake presidency talked about how our families need to be more centered on Christ and His gospel and about what it means to really honor our parents. The president said that he felt strongly to change his talks for both sessions and he did. Yesterday we all felt the spirit present and everyone was in awe for what was said. It was one of the best conferences I have been to. The choir was also great to have to bring the spirit. 

Elders Hill & Chandler enroute to the District Federali to get Visa's signed for year 2
This week I went to DF (Federal District) to sign my visa again... amazing how time goes by. There are always other people from other churches there in immigration. We talked to a Catholic priest from New York who has been here for 10 years and also with some Jehova´s Witnesses. It was a good experience because it reaffirmed to me yet again that we are THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE CHURCH ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH with the power and authority from God to say that we are His. Many people think of us as pushy and prideful with our religion and GOOD! We have something that the world doesn´t and all of the children of God need this knowledge to be saved. How sad to know that only a select few will make it to the Celestial kingdom and the Terrestrial will be as numerous as the sands of the sea. We need to save as many of our brothers and sisters as we can. Missionary work is for everyone-- including rescuing those who are members but have stopped attending church. My testimony is strong that this is essential for salvation. Do you have that testimony? 
Well, that´s about all that happened this week. I hope you all have a great week! 

Con Amor,

 (re: Destiny running for Student Body Officer or deciding not to)
That´s cool. She can do it. I can´t believe she´s going to 7th.
In our mission they have to stop a whole month at least before they can get baptized. Flor hasn´t gotten baptized because she keeps smoking and even though it´s once a week, she can´t get baptized. And if it´s one month for baptism, how long would it be for the temple? Also, who can´t believe I´m 20? (Mom-your sister Destiny)

The nice thing is that we always have the opportunity to repent and change. We don´t give anyone other options to quit smoking because the word of wisdom is also to not have habits or addictions. We don´t want to replace one addiction with another. She will quit on her own, but she just needs to decide to do it. 
And my mission president told us that coffee ice cream is against the word of wisdom. So is Coca-Cola (but that´s from Mormon Doctrine and not an official church standing- but it came from an apostle so it´s pretty much the same thing.) Along with energy drinks, mountain dew, mr pibb, etc. 

Love you. I have to go now. Have a good week. I hope that all turns out well with Bert and all that jazz. 

Love ,

Elder Hill
