Sounds like Camp Helaman was solid. ( A Young Men's camp about preparing for missions that Connor went attended.)
Favorite thing or something funny about each companion. Elder Candelario sang "I am walking on sunshine" everytime it poured rain. Elder Toro can't dance, but pretends he can. Elder Espinoza would sneeze, but when he did, it was like 8 continuous sneezes. Elder Morfin taught me that instead of saying "bless you" when someone sneezes you can say "sancho" and it means basically "someone just took your girl". So it always cracks me up when someone sneezes.
Well I will not be changing areas. I am staying in Xahuento with Elder Morfin, but I am now the District Leader. In my district there are 5 companionships including the zone leaders. I will be trained tomorrow (I think) and will have to train the district on Wednesday. I am a little nervous for the whole thing. I don't see myself as a Leader.
This week we had a huge rain storm on Saturday. The rivers in the streets were almost at mid shin. Elder Morfin and I GOT SOAKED. We also had to go back early on Saturday at 7:00 and we couldn't work on Sunday for the Elections. (Apparently things go nuts here during elections.) Also Elder Morfin and I had studies with Elder Candelario (assitant) and Elder Hansen (zone leader) it was great to hear their advice and to be with them.
Something that I was thinking a lot about this week was the Sacrament. I had been praying all week to feel that God was really with me. During the sacrament I had a feeling to really focus on what was being said. I listened carefully to every word and said a prayer while waiting for the bread. I felt the spirit so strongly and felt really for the first time the Power of the ordinance of the Sacrament.
I know that the Sacrament is of God and is something that we need. We can feel its power by repenting and keeping our convenants. The invitation is that you can really focus during the Sacrament next Sunday and feel the power of the Sacrament.
