Give Heed Unto Their Words

Hey there, hope everyone had a lovely week!

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Portavoz- spokesperson. As in, "Prophets are God's spokespeople here on Earth. He sends them to tell us His will and guide us to know how we can be happier and better serve Him."
Conferencia General- General Conference. As in, "In case I hadn't told you before (at least twice), prophets of God and other leaders of the church are going to speak to the world in a broadcast called General Conference this weekend! They're going to tell us how to live better and receive more blessings!"

Check it out at
Saturday October 1 and Sunday October 2nd:
Respuestas- answers. As in, "If you go into general conference with a question, God will send you answers through the messages of His servants. I received answers during the General Women's session last Saturday, and I'm looking forward to more this weekend!"

Two stories.
Remember the new investigator we found last week? We saw her again this week, and it was great. I went to see her with another sister while we were on exchanges. When we got there she'd read the pamphlet we left her and she had some questions about the restoration. We explained a bit more about it and focused a lot on how prophets give us guidance that blesses our families. She has a 2-year-old daughter and a 6-year-old son and she's separated from their dad. When we read from "The Family: A Proclamation to the World," we could see in her eyes that she'd found something she was looking for. She asked us if she could have it, and we gave it to her. We told her about general conference, and she said she wants to hear what the prophets tell us. She's really interested in the restored gospel and said that if she receives an answer that it's true, she would like to get baptized! She couldn't make it to the women's session, but we're hoping to take her this weekend.

We've also been teaching the investigator we found 2 weeks ago in church, the one who's been going to church for more than a year and finally started listening to us. She's progressing well! She really has a desire to understand the restored gospel and receive an answer that it's true. We asked her on Tuesday what she thought about a baptismal date. She chose her own baptismal date in a couple weeks and we're going full speed ahead to prepare her for it! She's great to work with, and we're blessed to be teaching her.

"Blessed are ye if ye shall give heed unto the words of these twelve whom I have chosen from among you to minister unto you, and to be your servants..." 3 Nephi 12:1
The President of the church, the quorum of the twelve apostles and other church leaders are going to speak inspired words to us this weekend. Don't miss out! Listen and give heed to their words- you will be blessed for it.

Have a great week, everyone! :)
