April 13th, 2015


So this week was a little rough. We didn´t have that much success in finding and teaching our usual investigators so we knocked doors this week! It was fun and good practice for my companion. He does a good job of talking to people and knocking doors but just needs to work on what he is going to say. But we did have some good lessons with some less actives and we also ate Asado with a part member family. It was so good!

We also had a good lesson with a recently activated family. We went to visit them and in the middle of the visit, the wife´s non-member mom showed up. She usually goes to the Evangelist church but stopped going for a few months because she felt bored and unsatisfied whenever she went. So we had a good lesson with her talking about church and that the most important part is the Sacrament and that gives us the will and desire to go to church every week because we can be clean from our sins. Then we invited her to church. She wasn´t sure when she wanted to go but she felt the spirit during the lesson so little by little she will be converted ;).

On Saturday we went to visit our progressing investigators Walter and Ilda. We talked with Ilda because Walter was working and we asked her if she believes the Book of Mormon and church are true and she said yes! Then she went to church on Sunday for Sacrament meeting and listened to all the testimonies. It was a great experience.

Also, David, our convert from March, went up and gave his testimony too! It was awesome to see that his faith and testimony are growing quickly and that he had the courage to share it with the ward. Basically the weekend made up for the rest of the week!

It also rained on Friday which was great because it hasn´t rained for like three weeks. It is also announced that it will rain A LOT this week so we are "happy" for that. Ha Ha Ha!

We are working hard and loving the work! One chapter from the Book of Mormon that I love and read this morning is Alma 27. There are many times in the mission where I have felt like him: happy and joyful for the Lord´s blessings. And then there are those times when you get a little down on yourself but you have to keep moving forward and trusting in our Heavenly Father, and then everything works out!

Have a great week!
