I hope you had a great conference weekend! I loved hearing all of the talks and inspiring messages from the living apostles and prophets. I received answers to several of my questions and learned several things that I am going to put into practice during the next couple of months here in Saltillo.

We had a great week working in the office in the morning and teaching several great lessons in the afternoon. Right now, we are teaching a guy named Roberto and a teenager named Jose Armando and both are doing awesome! They both accepted the invitation to be baptized this month! 

Both individuals are facing family problems and problems regarding keeping the word of wisdom (God's law of health that prohibits alcohol, smoking, drugs, coffee, and tea). However, both went to general conference and loved the talk by Elder Costa when he talked about his conversion story and the 5 things that every person that is investigating the church should do. Both Roberto and Jose Armando are making enormous progress to keep the Word of Wisdom and are loving the Book of Mormon! 

I have a ton of faith that both of these sons of our Heavenly Father will be able to develop faith in Jesus Christ, repent, and be baptized this month. They are awesome examples to me and demonstrate the love that our Heavenly Father has for each of us. Regardless of the problems or challenges we may face, God has a plan for each of us so we can return to His presence clean from sin and errors. The key is our faith in Jesus Christ and His infinite love and sacrifice. 

Have a great week! 
Elder Shipley
