Sixty-third Week - October 5, 2015


Wow, kinda annoyed right now cause these computers are horrible.  I've had to restart it six times now, so hopefully it'll get me through now. 

But anyways, great week.  Got to watch most of conference, all of it besides most of the Saturday morning session, cause here in the mission, if you don't have four investigators, you can't go to conference.  But don't worry.  We ended up getting 18 and 4 of them came multiple times.  It was awesome!
(At Chicken Alfredo's house.  He's an awesome kid.  He came to two sessions.  He, his mom, and his aunt are all getting baptized on the 24th.  They are so awesome!) 
This week, we will have two more baptisms, Andy and Fernanda.

Well, conference... I love President Monson!  Funny how much I hear everyday about the Prophet Joseph Smith.  Come on people!  Just accept the fact that he was the Prophet of the Restoration.  But anyways there were a bunch of little liners that I loved from conference.

-How do we make the Lord's ways, our ways?  I believe that we begin by learning of Him and praying for understanding.  As our trust in Him grows, we open our hearts and seek to do His will, and wait for answers to help us understand...
-When we open ourselves to the Spirit, we learn God's way and feel His will.
-The journey of discipleship is a course of steady improvement.
-Ask the Lord, "What is keeping me from progressing?"  Then quietly wait for a response.  If you are sincere, the answer will soon become clear.  It will be revelation intended just for you..
-None of us marry perfection, we marry potential.
-If you want more than you now have, reach up, not across.  No one can reach up for you. Only your faith and prayers will cause you to lift yourself and have the mighty change of heart. 
-It's never too early and its never too late.
-No matter how dark our doubts, we choose how long and to what extent we allow it to influence us.
-Am I as close to living like Christ now as I was before??
-Faith is not by chance, but by choice.
-Your calling isn't yours, take care of it.
-The Lord will qualify those whom he calls
-He weeps when we suffer and rejoices when we do what's right
-Our mothers bore us and continue to bear with us.
-He doesn't respond just to answer our curiosity
Just some things I noted down during conference that I really liked.  I hope you all have a great week and become more like Christ every day!
Mucho amor,
Elder Copeland

Many phrases can fit this picture:
-Because I have been given much, I too must give.
-Recordad que el valor de las almas es grande a la vista de Dios.
-True happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give.
-For it is in giving that we receive.
-You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
-In the service of the Lord, it's not where you serve, but how.
"Sí, venid a Cristo, y perfeccionaos en él, y absteneos de toda impiedad..."
