This week was good. I feel like it was productive and i learned a lot.
Well yes, zone conference we had elder hugo martinez and his wife come to be our guest speakers. Let me just tell you they are awesome. Hermana Martinez has so much energy and is just darling and short. She wow is full of great words she talked about places well we need a vision a goal and a plan really. she shared a ton of stories which were great analogies. Like when we do things and sometimes we do the same thing over and over again and don’t look to what we can change so we get a different result. She made waffles with insect repellant and didn’t know why the ‘oil’ wasn’t working, hah! bc it wasnt oil and she made almost her whole batch and trhew them away. haha
we talked about sharing the meat of our message-so cover the restoration in our first lesson briefly bc then we testify of what’s different and don’t waste as much time bc people will either feel of the truth or reject it. So yeah we might be rejected more often but you know its Gods time and we’ll sift through everyone faster and find the people prepared. It was great to recharge and learn new things and receive inspiration.
ok well a few updates…
angel… we fasted and decided to drop him for a time bc he really needs to decide to do it or not. and really we are not sure how yet but we´re thinking and praying of how. bc we still want him to go to church.
gelman. we taught him la ley de castidad and well he has this lady who is in love with him but they haven’t even kissed and yeah it was a hilarious lesson and he said he´d keep it.
quince… yeah well she is a little sister of another investigator that we have and we contacted her Saturday night and invited her to church and well she went for all 3 hours and loved it!! so we set a cita with the whole family next week to share with them bc we think they might just be awesome.
Have a great week!!
Let´s be real life has been crazy. It’s still hot but we drink lots of water, I really am loving my new area. There are a lot of changes, the house has people who are more dramatic and girly which if you ask me God is helping me develop patience and charity.
We have this one investigator who is awesome, his name is angel and he is 18 and he has been taught for a while and he goes to church but he really wants to KNOW if the church and book of Mormon. When i first met him we talked about keep the commandments and when we keep them God is more willing to help us. He wasn’t really reading and was praying mas o menos, (some) so we asked him to pray and read and then we will really start putting into practice for sure the other commandments. The next cita (lesson) he said he had read and prayed every day. Wow. Then yesterday in church he made a comment about keeping la ley de cstidad (Chastity?) and the palabra de sabiduria. (word of Wisdom) How we really need to keep them and sacrifice the natural man. He really is starting to change! We are fasting this Sunday with him so that he can really get his answer. Who knows when God will answer but if he keeps putting in to practice these things i think it will be rather soon. So we are praying extra for him this week.
We also have this other girl named Dariana and she is 17 and has a little boy her cousin Angelo 16 and her bro Rony 19. They are awesome and Angelo is super shy and when we gave him his ldm LIbro de Mormon, he almost looked like he wasn’t really going to read it but the next cita (lesson) he had read one chapter oh how excited I was.
Another experience- so simple but such a great lesson to me this week was one day we were getting water in a colmado (market) and hna black was about to pay, i thought to contact the man and thought no, then thought again and decided to speak to him. It was such a simple and easy thought to put off but I decided to give in. Well it turns out he was a menos activo (less active member) named beto and here we don’t have as many menos activos or they’re just harder to find. But i just felt like was a good lesson to ALWAYS listen to promptings! I’m not sure what will happen with him or what, but when we are obedient God guides and leads us.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY. I love you mom. igaul a mis abuelas. (also to my Grandmas!) I am so grateful for all that you have taught me and all you have done!!
FELIZ DIA DE LAS MADRES
Have a wonderful week.
