Cool Multi-Zone Conference with Elder Ochoa!

Hey folks. 
Well… This week was good. The lake trip kind of stunk because it was rainy and overcast, but it was still fun. It made me really miss swimming and lake trips. 

The work is going really good. We brought 5 investigators to church and we have a baptism set for this Saturday. We also have another lady with a date to be baptized in October. So that will be cool! 

On Thursday we had a really cool experience. Elder Adrian Ochoa, the first counselor of the Area Presidency of Central America, came and spoke to us. We had a really great multi-zone meeting with him. I learned a lot of stuff and really felt the spirit there.

The first thing he told us was that he was there on orders from the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve… Super Crazy :-0 He talked a lot about faith and how we need to show our true faith through how we act.  Also, we need to fear God more than man. He told us to focus on finding the chosen children of God. He said that if someone shows resistance to our message, we just need to leave them and move on to find the people that are actually prepared to receive the gospel. So that was really cool. 

Things are going really good here. I like this area! I don’t have changes until October. General Conference is coming up and it will be my last one in the mission;-0 I really have to take advantage of the spirit that I feel in General Conference as a missionary. It’s crazy how different it is.

I love you all and hope you have a great week! Thanks for all of your love and prayers!

Elder Hoy
