This week has been super crazy but super fun! The best part of the week was the conference that we had with Presidente! At the beginning of every transfer we have a conference with all the leaders, and this conference was really good! We talked about how we need to raise our expectations and trust in the Lord with all our heart and then act with love for everyone around us. It was such a spiritual meeting and i loved the focus we had in charity. Something that we learned that i loved is that at baptism we all take upon us the name of Christ, and so if we cant learn to love one other we really arent loving Christ. That is why we must have love for all men and learn to serve others because truly the way we act towards everyone is how we are showing that love and charity for Christ.
I love you all so much. Thank you all for your support and love in this time of my life :) You all are the best!
Elder Stuart was made an AP (Assistant to the President) last week and is really excited for his new assignment! I asked him some questions about his responsibilities and his past week and these were his responses:
Sounds like a wonderful suday you had! Mine was good! i have about 80 people in my new ward, and the building looks the same as the one in Cipo, and the people are as good as ever! Also i dont know if you remember Guillermo that got baptized in Cipo, well he moved to Neuquen and now he is in my ward again, so thats cool!
I live in a pension close to the home, but we are here almost every day planning and thinking about ways to help the mission, and doing exchanges with missionaries and talking with President about stuff! :) Being AP I have to help plan all the counsils and conferences, do exchanges with missionaries, plan on ideas to teach the mission on how to move the work forward, and when I have time, work in my area :)
We are just staying in the pension of the office elders for now but this week we are headed to the south! and hopefully we will have a pensionn when i get back! We have a car to spilt between the office, but we only use it for certain things, usually we walk if it is close! We usually eat in the home, or on our own because we dont have lunch with members because we never know when we are going to be here.:)
