50 And I said unto them: If God had commanded me to do all things I could do them. If he should command me that I should say unto this water, be thou earth, it should be earth; and if I should say it, it would be done.
51 And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of men, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?
-1 Nephi 17: 50-51

Awesome Conference!!!

 Man, Kody is really starting to look more confident and like an athlete - it's really cool to see! Glad to here all is well! Speaking of Christmas, I have no idea when I´ll call you, but I´ll get to call on Christmas Eve with more details...

This week was pretty great! We got to have a conference with Pres. Costa! Man was it cool!!  He said that when General Authorities shake hands, they are having a mini-interview with us! I was like what!? He said that he didn't have a talk written or a training planned- that he would go off the Spirit and what he studied with a questionnaire that we did about our work.  He actually, while teaching us, answered all of our questions! Without asking! He also told Presidente Dalton that our mission was so spiritual, that he felt that he should tell us things he wouldn´t have told other missions! (He goes to missions and talks to them once a week!) It was a conference really inspiring for my life and mission! The part that was really important was when he said he KNOWS that Joseph Smith saw a pilçar of light and that he KNOWS that light.  The power of his testimony was so strong! I loved it! 

Also, this week we taught a lady that's been learning about the church for I think 4 or 5 months..... And she's now going to be baptized on the 27th of Dec.! She´s just gotta stop smoking, and we´re gonna teach her about temples and the work that goes on there (she´s lost her mom and her daughter) When we taught her about the plan of Happiness, she lit up -- it was so cool! She wants to be with her mom and sister forever, and now she knows that there's a way to get there!!

I love being a missionary!
And I love y'all!
