This week was kind of an emotional roller coaster, but a lot of good things happened! This weekend was the Jurupa Stake Conference with a visiting General Authority, Elder Zwick of the Seventy. It was an awesome spiritual uplift that I needed.
Our Stake President, President Jorgensen, is known throughout the mission as a great support of missionary work! Elder Zwick is his Uncle and his dad is the Temple President of the San Diego Temple. I wouldn’t be surprised if President Jorgensen became a General Authority one day!
We were able to have two investigators at Stake Conference and they got to meet Elder Zwick. Charley is a cute 12-year old girl who is on date for baptism in December, and Koreen is a young mom of three boys. It was crazy when he met Koreen because he gave her his phone number and said “when you get baptized and you really know the gospel is true, call me”. It was awesome! It was her first time at church and she loved it! 🙂
I don’t remember if I mentioned this in previous emails, but we met Koreen while we were walking, the same day that she prayed to God to find someone to drive her to church! Prayers are always answered!
I got to go on exchanges with Sister Madrid, a missionary I came out with! She is from Peru and is the bomb! Since we were on exchanges the date after her birthday, we had a lunch and dinner appointment. (#spanishwardprobs) We ate so much tres leches cake at each appointment we got sick! haha! At one of the homes we were at, one of the women tried to set me up with the missionary who baptized her and she video called him. It was super super awkward.
Well, that was my week! Love and miss you all, keep killin it:)
Love, Sister Meza
