We were on exchanges this week and as we were visiting a less active we stopped and talked to this younger girl outside some apartments. When we asked if we could come by to share a message with her she says, "yeah that's fine, but don't think you're going to covert me." Ha. Challenge accepted.
We went back over there and had an awesome lesson with her and her brother. She committed to read a chapter from the Book of Mormon. It is always very refreshing when the Spirit guides us to people.(:
Earlier that day we were role-playing in district meeting a street contact. I was pretending to be the guy and just making up stuff as we went along with the other missionary. Well that night we knocked on a door and I kid you not, the exact words that came out of his mouth had come out of mine earlier in that role-play. Knocked my socks off. Then it happened a second time in the reverse situation to the other missionary in his area! Apparently somebody up there appreciates our practice..(':
How about that conference huh? That's the stuff. I loved all of it, and there were some great quotes in there. One of my favorite talks had to be Elder Christofferson's. He talked about fatherhood! What an awesome role we get as men. While I'm still light years away from that responsibility I know that dad's are pretty awesome and the world needs more good ones. Many times a well placed "dad-joke" is exactly what the family needs.(; One cool quote I found is, "Out of all the titles there are for deity, God has asked us to call him Father."
Vaya con Dios!

P.s. Anyone do anything for April Fool's?
