Hola Everyone

This week went by super quick. We didn't have many lessons or anything like that but it somehow went by really fast. Maybe its the time in the mission curse that makes it pass by so quickly. The theory is that as a missionary gets more time in the mission, the faster the rest of his/her mission goes by. I never really understood it but I think that I'm starting to just a little bit. Our Zone Conference with President Warne was awesome! He and Sister Warne went to Israel like 3 years ago and he showed us some pictures and talked about the significance of many places there. And then we focused on Christ. It was interesting what he said. He said that we need to spend more time teaching people about Him so that they can KNOW Him, not just know ABOUT Him. Elder Ramirez and I, we put it into practice that same afternoon with Roberto and Francisco. It was an awesome lesson! The sad thing was that they didn't come to church yesterday...I was super bummed out. But we had a different investigator, Pablo, that came to church. He really enjoyed it. He and his son have a baptismal date for the 17th. They have a long ways to go but with the Lord's help anything is possible. This Easter weekend was different. Normally people are at home with the family, right? WRONG!! Here they go to the beach or someplace else. There were very, very few people in our sector. We tried but it really is amazing how people can reject a message of Christ during Easter. Oh well. We just have to keep on moving forward. I know that Christ lives. I know that He suffered for us so that we can return to live with our Father in Heaven again. This is His church, no doubt in my mind. Love and miss you all! Have an awesome week!

With love,

Elder Jayson Welker
