Haha it made me laugh to think of halmoni trying to get me something vitamin c and ecinachea, because there is no way they have ecinachea down here. I didn't have the heart to tell her. When it comes to vitamins and over the counter medicine, about as advanced as they get are these things called piedras de azufre (roughly translated, stones of brimstone) You roll them on your body and they suck the pain out, and they may or may not be black magic.
Conference was so great, the only negative thing about it was thinking that at next conference I will no longer be a missionary. I did something drastic last week, because my companion is from my group, you know so it's really hard not to get trunky because all the time I'm just thinking, "This guy came to the mission with me. That was a long time ago. We're going home together. That's not too far in the future." Anyway, so we did an emergency intercambio and I went with the youngest missionary in the mission and officially swore off trunkiness. We worked like crazy that day, with many fruits. We got like 4 people to come to general conference. It made me realize I don't want to die a Zone Leader. It's so much easier to focus when you have a younger companion. I want to die training. I'm gonna see what I can do about that.
Also, conference itself was astounding. I felt a great sense of urgency. There's not time left to mess around in the gospel. They spoke quite frankly. I liked it a lot. They gave a lot of advice for people who suffer persecution while they live the gospel... scares me. Seems like we'll be getting to that point soon. Oh well. The gospel is true. Christ has the words of eternal life. Where else will we go? What else can we do? We can only serve. It's the only thing that will matter eternally. May we always be found doing the work of the Lord.
Love you guys, see you in 5 months!
