ola familia,

We are just working hard which isn’t very new. But my thumb is getting much better and stronger. It is getting warmer too. We are just setting baptismal dates again. They drop because people don’t come to church sometimes. That is the biggest challenge on their roads to baptism. However, Rebecca came to church with us to watch conference yesterday with her severely mentally handicapped grand daughter, Chalisa. It was the first time she got to come to church after being an investigator for a year. She has been worried about taking Chalisa with her. So, that was a miracle. We just have to catch up with her and see how much she enjoyed it. She told us she knows the Book of Mormon is true. So, now it is up to us to help her see the connection to the Church being true, which is pretty obvious to most. . . but sometimes people don’t get it, even though she has read the introduction to the Book of Mormon which says that. . . ? ? anyway.

Conference was WONDERFUL, or vunderful (in German).

Did you watch Saturday’s conference? It was my favorite of course. I love the Prophets. They tell us what we need to hear, and not necessarily what we want to hear. But sometimes we need and want to hear it, then it’s even better.

I noticed that there was a lot about the First commandment–to love the Lord thy god with all thy (stuff) and then to love thy neighbor as thyself. What an all-encompassing commandment. There was so much about service. I am trying to think less about myself and more about serving others. That is one goal that I have set from listening to conference.

Well, did I ever tell you about our first scorpian that we found? We sucked it up in the vacuum cleaner. Also, if you ever want a cactus, this is where you go to get it. There are soo many.

We got a new investigator yesterday. Her name is Gussie and she is 98 years old. WOW! She’s a chipper little thing for 98. She gets around great and can still read!

Also, I don’t know if you know this yet either. We learned to make real flour tortillas from a hispanic lady in our ward, Sister Leeth. That was a while ago, but it was really neat, and now I know how to make legitimate Mexi-tortillas. They are soo good. Sister Leeth said she used to sell them to support her family.

Well, I have to go. P-day is short.

Love you all!
-Sister Bryce
