Respect!

Dear Familia y Amigos,

This week we have zone conferences with Elder Allan Packer, an Area Seventy in South America. I attended yesterday, and it was wonderful. My companion, Elder Lozano, was selected to have an interview with him. 

I'll share a few of the things he talked to us about:
  • Every country has different culture, customs, and traditions. If we don't respect the culture of the country, we can offend the people that live there. Therefore, one needs to learn the culture of the country so that they don't offend others with their conduct. 
  • The celestial kingdom has a culture as well. When we don't learn and respect the culture of the celestial kingdom, we offend the spirit.
  • It is extremely important to merit the confidence of others. As a missionary we merit the confidence of members when we work hard. When we teach the plan of salvation to investigators with the vision that they attend the temple to do the work for their ancestors, we merit the trust and prayers of the dead as well.

Love,
Elder Hale

May Zone Conference
