      Oathbringer Spoiler Policy   11/13/2017

      Oathbringer is out! Let's make our policy on spoilers clear! 1. You must preface topics with Oathbringer spoilers with the prefix [OB] in the front 2. You are only allowed to post spoilers and spoiler topics in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board, Cosmere Theories, and some select work-related forums. 3. For posts in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board you do not need to use spoiler tags inside a topic marked [OB]. For Cosmere Theories, you also do not need to put spoiler tags inside your topic if the topic has [OB] in the title. However, for Cosmere Theories, if you are adding Oathbringer stuff to an old theory without the [OB] tag, those must go in spoiler tags and you must make it obvious outside the spoiler tag that the spoiler is regarding Oathbringer content. 4. For select things that do require talking about OB spoilers, in Events, Coppermind, and Arcanum forums, those are allowed but keep OB spoilers in spoiler tags 5. Avoid and minimize spoilers in topic titles--even though those two boards will not appear in the Recent Topics ticker, topic titles still appear in Recent Activity and the forum home.  6. You aren't allowed to post Oathbringer spoilers in places other than listed, even with spoiler tags.  It will be nine months and then the Oathbringer board will be re-merged with the Stormlight board and you will not need to tag these spoilers. If you'd like to move something in the Stormlight Archive board to the Oathbringer board, to update it with new Oathbringer information, Report the post and we will happily move it to the Oathbringer spoiler board. Part-by-part Reactions Though the Oathbringer Spoiler Board will be very spoilery, very fast (maybe don't come there until you've read the book, as people do have copies that bookstores sold early), you'll have these five topics for reactions if you want to nerd out: Part 1 Reactions
      Part 2 Reactions
      Part 3 Reactions
      Part 4 Reactions
      Full Book Reactions For parts 1-4, they will not include the interludes immediately following it. On Discord All Oathbringer spoilers on Discord will be exclusively in the #oathbringer_spoilers channel for the nine month spoiler period and nowhere else.

Hello Friends and Family!

This week we had an awesome Zone Conference. President Zobrist and Hermana Zobrist talked a ton about Family History work (whoo-hoo!) and about recent converts. We did an activity where some missionaries went up, and acted as their ancestors, who needed their work done. They went up and told their story, and asked if anyone had their name. There were many who did- but there were one or two that didn´t. One of them was a faithful man, member of the church, that never had the opportunity to go to the temple and get sealed to his wife and son because he lived far away from the temple, and he died shortly after the birth of his son in World War One. 

As he went and said "Does somebody have my name?" I felt the Spirit, strongly, that there are people that are waiting for me to do the work for them. There are people on the other side of the veil who need to be baptized, who need to be sealed, who are there, heartbroken, because their work is not yet done. It was really touching and very powerful. I remember that we did something similar in my ward, when I was still pretty young (in primary I believe). I remember that same feeling, of people there waiting, but I didn´t feel the same sense of responsibility that I now feel.

Me and my companion are doing really well. We´re working hard, and trying to help people to have spiritual experiences for themselves, trying to help them so that they can become converted (or reconverted), and enjoy the blessings they so desperately need. One cool experience, is that we have a 12 year old girl who we´re teaching, Estefani, who´s preparing to be baptized in November with her aunt and uncle (who are siblings, not a couple). She said that when she reads the Book of Mormon, she feels a peace, and it´s just interesting. She says it´s not like other books, where you read it and the second time around it gets boring. She says it´s just fascinating. I was so happy when I heard that, because I knew that it was the Spirit that was helping her to feel that it is more than just a normal book- it´s the word of God. 

I love being a missionary, and I love doing this work. Thank you for your prayers, and your comments, and I hope the best for you!
