Lots of baptisms and getting excited for General Conference!
we had another temple trip where we bring all our investigators to the temple and also less actives. They loved it! I was also Nephi again. The news was there so maybe you might find me on the news from here! haha but it was awesome because I got to see a ton of people from my other areas. But guess what! Elder Custodio was there! He visited from Guatemala! It was great to see him. Later I went on divisions with the Zone Leaders in Alta Vista. And for dinner we went to the Zepeda Family! IT was so cool to go back and visit with them. They were all so happy to see me and saying how I could actually speak Spanish now and stuff. It was so fun.
It was one of the best weeks ever! Carlos was baptized and confirmed this last weekend! He was really happy! There were a lot of members that were there to support him. Now our plan is to visit himand teach him about the Priesthood so that he can have his interview with the Bishop and receive the Priesthood here soon!
Ana, Kevin, Rodolfo and Sergio all went to church yesterday! It was so awesome! They are all preparing for their baptisms in April. We had to change Rodolfo's date to the 23rd because he drank coffee. But he said that he felt so bad inside and that he wouldn't do it anymore. He also loves reading the Book of Mormon because he says it helps him be happy and have the energy to get stuff done. Ana and Kevin just need their interview this week and go to conference. Then they will be baptized on the 9th! This week we will also be making sure that they have received their testimony. They say they are reading alot and praying. They feel good as they pray but haven't gotten an answer. But we will help them be able to recognize that that is their answer.
I am so excited for General Conference! Its going to be amazing. I love listening to the prophets. I know that the words we hear from them come from God! I love you all so much!
Love Elder Markham

Pictures from Elder Togisala's Mom Amber: Garrett looks very happy, but too skinny! I can't wait to have him home to put some muscle back on him!
And Garrett got to visit his friend Karen Martinez (Zepeda Family) who sent me these pictures!
