Through the Fire and Flames on Expert Mode (May 16,2016)

So this week we had the opportunity to have a guitar in our apartment.

We had an activity in our ward (and a baptismal service) where we planned to do a few musical numbers, and with permission from the mission president we got to borrow a nilon string acoustic guitar for a few days. Which, was awesome. We performed "We'll Bring the World His Truth". I played the guitar and the other Elders sang, and it turned out pretty well. I've been learning a lot about music with Elder Mumford (he's been giving me piano lessons on mondays), but it was cool to actually do something that I know how to play. I was happy to share that with everybody.
After such a long time your hands really start to hurt, though. 

We also went to another 6 hour leadership conference in AsunciĆ²n, which meant two 4 hour busrides and staying the night in the mission office. A fun experience, with a bit of heated advice from President about the Area book. A lot of 
"How would you like to hand Christ your area book right now" sort of stuff. It's a very effective strategy to get us to do our job well. I really do have a testimony of keeping things organized here in the mission. It's impossible to find someone and to help them get converted if we don't write these things down. I love getting to an area and seeing that the missionaries did their job as far as that's concerned. I've been working a lot on the gift of discernment recently, trying to really take my time when we teach to observe and listen instead of just talking to the people. I'm a bit of a talker, so it's been good to bridle that a little bit and feel the spirit even stronger in lessons. Stop, look, and listen.

Carlos Chavez, our recent convert, baptized his son Carlitos as well. Such a cool thing, really. That's my second convert to baptize someone else while I'm here, and it's so much more rewarding that actually performing the ordinance myself. I did get to participate in the laying on of hands for the Gift of the Holy Ghost, though. Always cool, always cool.

I'll keep you updated if anything happens on my birthday this friday!
