Buenos Dias a todos!
week was a great week of finding people to teach, working hard,
laughing, and getting one of the best butt and leg workouts ever!
week we continued teaching L. It has been hard because he is living
with a lady for 20 years but they don't want to get married and don't want
to stop living together. Another hard part is that he used to practice
dark magic and made pacts with the devil which is why he is looking for
the Light of Christ. But it is very hard to teach that God has
requirements when Satan's power was so easy to access. We will see if he
keeps progressing. If you could pray that he can receive an answer that
he needs to live the law of Chastity.
This week was a good
week because we found many investigators that can progress and others
that need to get married before they can progress. But we have some
families of single mothers with some kids that can get baptized and
bring the happiness of the gospel to their home. We need prayers that
the Herrera family can come to church this Sunday. That is what we need
more than anything.
This week I have been a little bit sick
with a Man Cold. My whole body has ached (Probably part from being
sick, other part climbing so many hills) But I am getting better so that
is definitely a plus in my week.
We had interchanges this
week I was in a sector that isn't very hilly which was nice. It was a
great interchange because we were able to teach lots of people and
invite some people to be baptized. It was a great experience because
they felt the spirit after learning about Joseph Smith and they felt the
spirit really strongly. It was a great interchange and a great chance
to show the elders How to just go for it and invite everyone :)
week My legs and Butt have hurt soooooo bad! Our sector has the biggest
steepest hills in the whole mission. And all the Recent Converts live,
yeah that's right, at the top of each hill! But it has been good. My legs
are getting a lot stronger and I am getting skinnier again ha ha but they
are on Fire! :) A good way to end the mission :)
spiritual experience of the week. After a day of lots of appointments
that had fallen through I was really wanting to teach someone who was
going to progress and actually put our teachings into practice. I could
tell that my companion wanted the same. We decided to start knocking
doors but we were in an area that isn't the most secure in the night time
and it was pretty dark so I prayed that we could be guided to someone
who will progress. We felt the impression to knock one more door. When
we did we found a lady who is pregnant and is going to have a baby in a
month. She was really friendly, kind, and was interested in our message.
She doesn't live with anyone except her parents so there is nothing big
that can prevent her from progressing :) I know that God answered our
prayers and guided us to her house.
I know that God lives, Loves us, and wants to guide us if we accept his counsel.
I love you all! Stay golden!
