General Confernece

Well hey there!

Sorry bout´ not writing last week. Being in Guatemala, of course the power went out due to a fierce thunderstorm, soooooooo I wasn´t able to write.

And unfortunately I don´t have too much time today, but General Conference was really great, every single session! I mentioned to my comp, after the first day that I didn´t want it to end. I could just feel the power of the words of all the speakers and know they are called of God. It was interesting to see as well the interview with the three new apostles after the Saturday afternoon session.

Here´s a few General Conference quotes that stood out to me...
       ¨Our desicions will determine our destiny.¨
       ¨Be not afraid. Only believe.¨
       ¨Fear not. The future is as bright as your faith.¨
       ¨Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.¨
       ¨If there be no rightouesness, there be no happiness.¨
       ¨One in complete submissvness with God´s will is sanctified.¨
       ¨It will all work out!¨
       ¨Exaltation is our goal, discipleship is our journey.¨
       ¨Do not be too critical of the barrier.¨
       ¨When you cannot do what you´ve always done, you do what matters most.¨

We had a wonderful miracle this week! Isaias´s son, Fredy, called us and said it was an emergency. We got to their house as fast as possible and saw the whole family huddled together crying. Isaias was feeling really down and said he wanted a blessing. We gave him a blessing and  his wife a blessing as well. He calmed down. Then he told us he wanted to be baptized! We all smiled, grateful for the Priesthood.

René also wants to be baptized! He put his own baptism date for later this month. This was after he took time to think about it and to read and pray. We were so excited when we got to his house this last week, and he told us he was going to be baptized! I love sharing this gospel.

Hope everyone has a great week! Hasta luego

Elder Hicken
