So President Thompson and Sister were down here with us this weekend which was awesome. He came down to do some priesthood advancement interviews and things like that. It was really nice to spend some time with them. I love the 3 Elders down here with me, but it is always great to see new faces. So yesterday in Church two of our recent converts received the Melchizedek Priesthood! Toni and Henriques, they were both baptized back in December. It has been so cool to see their conversion, the Gospel has truly changed their lives. Their priorities have taken a total 180. Henriques was also made Elders quorum President, the first one this branch has ever had! Up until now President Marques the branch president has been the only Melchizedek Priesthood holder and I think that has been something truly holding the branch back a bit. But, now it's all uphill! One of our other converts, Leonel, is getting pretty close to being advanced as well, we'll see what happens!
Other than that, the week was a pretty normal one. FIND, FIND, FIND. We are still working super hard on getting a solid family, but it's not super easy.
This is my companion, Elder Sande's last week in the mission field so we're going to make sure it is a good one!
Sorry that this email is super short... I hope you all have an awesome week!
Con, Don't have to much fun in Cali
