Trip to the temple, general conference, and a new workout video

The most exciting thing this week were 3 things, trip to the temple, general conference, and a new workout video.
Well the temple trip was amazing. But different than most, we didn't actually go inside of the temple. This was all for the investigators. They were able to walk around the outside of the temple and see its beauty. We also had talks and stuff like that about the plan of salvation, baptism, families, and auxiliaries. This temple is so beautiful and the inside is even more. We brought a couple investigators, its hard to because our area is soooooo far away from the temple. About 5 hours and about 150 km. The climate felt great because it wasn't hot over there. There were other missionaries complaining that it was hot in san salvador but I was like you guys need to go to la union to experience true heat haha. There were 1500 missionaries and investigators there. Thats almost double the last time we had this trip back on december 19. 
Next is about general conference, and no I didn't not watch it in spanish this time, we watched it in english. But I loved this general conference, it was so powerful. Being on a mission makes general conference feel like a privilege. The new news on the street was that we are getting 3 new temples in Haiti, Thailand, and the Ivory Coast. Thats so cool. I loved the talks and the ones in spanish we listened to in spanish because it was more powerful in its native language. we actually listened to the one in Portuguese and surprisingly I understood about 70 % of it. Portuguese and spanish are so similar. I liked the part where President Utchdorf started speak in german and then corrected himself haha. This is my companions last general conference, he goes home in 2 months. Hes so old. So much revelation and so much knowledge given from these talks. I cant wait till the liahona comes out. Its starting to get hard to not stop thinking in spanish because its so much easier. My mind is just use to it. 
We have this investigator who is super cholo, cholo means strong, all he does is just work out every single day. He gave us this workout video called Insanity. Its so hard but it feels great afterwards. Im starting to get chunky. I've gained about 30 pounds so far. But I was a beanpole when I started. Its true that the skinny missionaries in this mission become fat and the fat missionaries become skinny. But Ill try this out and stop eating bad food. I stopped eating chips in general because this chips here are so bad for you. 
Well thats really all for this week, thanks for all your support.
Moroni 8:25-26
25 Y las primicias del arrepentimiento es el bautismo; y el bautismo viene por la fe para cumplir los mandamientos; y el cumplimiento de los mandamientos trae la remisión de los pecados;
26  y la remisión de los pecados trae la mansedumbre y la humildad de corazón; y por motivo de la mansedumbre y la humildad de corazón viene la visitación del Espíritu Santo, el cual Consolador llena de esperanza y de amor perfecto, amor que perdura por la diligencia en la oración, hasta que venga el fin, cuando todos los santos morarán con Dios.
