First he talked about street contacting! He recounted a time when he was doing a conference just like that one just outside of the U.S. and there were eight missionaries who were with him, four from the two different missions. He said when they got to the airport four from one mission surrounded him and was talking with him and his wife. Then he said that he realized that the other four from the other mission were gone and he was looking around the lobby and he saw the other four talking with people and contacting them! He then went on to tell us of the importrance of contacting and talking with people! He then proceded to tell us how we are blessed to be here in Mexico because over in Europe, where there is not a lot of solid Christian places, it's hard for them to teach and contact. He then went on to tell a joke and this is the joke: every time a missionary knocks on a door in Denmark somone is baptised in Mexico! He then told us to talk with lots of people, he wants this joke to be true! So that was great!
He then went on to talk about the importance of Sacrament Meeting. He said we are working in a very Catholic country and most of these converts were Catholics and they are not used to going to church every week. He told us to talk about the importance of the sacrament and how it is a weekly thing! He then went on to talk about the General Authorities and how they are so important in stake conferences, but don't have the opportunity to take the sacrament regularly. He told us when President Monson became the President of the Church he set aside the first Thursday of every month to be a fast day for the first presidency the Quorum of the 12 and the First 2 Quorums of the 70! He said those are some of the most spritual experience he has had! He said its so important that we take it once a week and to be taking it and renewing thier covenants with the Lord!
