Temple P-day and Conference time

Dear Family and Friends,
Well another wonderful week in the Great California Long Beach Mission. This week was kind of rough. One of our investigators told us this week that he would like so much to read the Book of Mormon to help him understand it.  We will continue to invite him to activities at church and continue to invite him to come to church with us in the hopes that he sees the light of the Gospel. 
We had another investigator, Bertha, who asked a question about the Word of Wisdom a few weeks ago and we thought that that would be the best lesson to teach her. When we invited her to live the Word of Wisdom she said that she already was trying to live it. She had started drinking coffee every other day rather than every day. It was very cool to see her change and have faith enough to try before we even ask/tell her about the commandment of the Word of Wisdom. She also went to Women's conference on Saturday.
This week we had the primary program at church on Sunday, which means that the children from ages 8 to 11  sing and talk in sacrament meeting about things that they have learned over the year. It was so good. 
Women's conference, as many of you know, was this Saturday. Women's conference is where the women ages 8 and up meet together to hear from the General Authorities. We heard from women serving in the Relief Society, Young Women, and Primary presidency. One of my favorite talks was by Sister Carole M Stephens called the Master Healer. I love how she spoke of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and how it is through Christ that we can be healing and how we can find comfort and peace.
