Monday, November 19, 2012: Hermana Bowles

Hola Familia:
Well the rains of winter have definitely started and as a standard I always leave with a plastic bag to cover my stuff now.  It rained 3 of 5 days this week.
Stake conference was this week and was WONDERFUL.  Elder Soliz from the Seventy came and so did the Lima Temple Mission President and his wife.  Their talks were wonderful and focused on the basics of keeping the commandments and being worthy to enter the temple. 
Oh and we had zone conference!   woohoo!  At the end of zone conference explained a timetable and showed how the lord is really hastening his work.  How from 2004 when preach my gospel was introduced, and then 2010 with the 8 fundamentals, and then 2011 with 12 semanas, and now 2012 with the age change, now there are more missionaries leaving than ever!!!  Instead of building more MTCs, a missionary`s time in training is going to be shortened. For example, a gringo in our mission will now not pass any time in Provo and will go straight to Lima and only be there 6 weeks!  The new missionaries have so many exciting changes.  But it really is true that for years these changes have been taking place and it`s all for preparation.
Edith`s baptism had to be moved another week back.  This weekend should be really special with 2 baptisms.  This has been such a process for her.  Yay for new families we found this week that accepted baptism!
This week was full of so many wonderful experiences.
Love always,
Hermana Bowles
