|Excited for General Conference|
|Waiting for Conference to begin!|
Happy Easter to all or as they say here Feliz Semana Santa o Feliz Pascua! Here is a weekend long of time to be with family, festivities and different misas. The culture is predominately catholic here, so there were lots of movies about Jesus on the TV Friday and Saturday, people in the streets with their palm fronds in processions singing, and even people doing reenactments in the streets of the last supper, and then of the betrayal of Jesus. I didn't have my camera to snap a pictures, but it was the first time I saw the plays and it was interesting! Viernes Santo were treated to a chifa or a Chinese restaurant by a member and it was good! (though my hearts still set on Panda Express on the states). Saturday we were super happy and excited to be able to hear and see conference. We didn't have any investigators in the Saturday sessions, but Sunday was awesome to have 5 different people listening and experiencing conference for the first time.
Earlier in the week, Tuesday, we had a little ward activity in which we watched the new videos of the bible about the atonement of Jesus Christ and were able to have some of our new converts come. It was a great opportunity to remember a little bit about the importance of the season and then be able to play games afterwards.
Wednesday, my companion whipped out her talents and a member bought all the ingredients and she made Tacos. I did not realize how much this Californian Girl missed Mexican food, until my taste buds came into contact with the heavenly bundle of taco supremeness that my companion made. I just about cried. ah ha ha.

I hope for everyone that it was a fun Easter season and that we can always apply the sacrifice of Jesus that this week represents in our lives.
