anyways, as the title says this was the hardest week of mty mission! The reason is that we went FOUR DAYS WITHOUT A SINGLE LESSON OR NUEVO!!! we seriously knocked on like 50 doors each day and NOBODY let us in! it was sooo hard…. my comp was a little discouraged bnut we worked hard and powered through it! and we finished the week by finding a family of 4!!! they live across the street from the chapel so that should make their assistence a litle easier!
but yeah, this family rules! At first, they didnt want us to come in but we kept persisting.Finally the let us come in to offer a prayer and as we talked to them more, we found out that they had a child die and that times were really hard for them. Well, we ended up talking for a while witht them and as we left the wife told us “you guys came at the precise moments for us” man oh man was that amazing to hear. We scheduled a lesson with them fir this weekend but we are going to pass by during the week to check in on them.
Thats something my comp and i are working really hard on. We are working really hard on our compromisos ( i forget the word they use in english) and our enfoque on teaching the people. We both teach well, but we aer trying to really find what these people need in thwir life in order to relly apply the gospel to help them. We are also trying to focus on compromisos and extedning them out of love to help them really desire to come unto Christ. We are also tryiung to talk less when we teachand teach a lot simpler and testify a lot more. The past couple of days we have done that we have seen a MAJOR difference and it is truely awesome!
well like stephen said, i too have been studying la caridad and i have been trying to develop it! as misionaries, we wont have success a menos que we focus on the people and love them. It takes time to develop this type of amor, but i want to really work hard to develop it. in predicad mi evangelio it says that as we develop this trait we will desire the salvation of everyone and strive to lift them up and bless them! so i am trying really hard to study and develop this trait.
bueno, estoy muy agradecido por mi oportunidad ser misionero de tiempo completo. aunque es muy dificil a veces y todavia estoy acustombrandome, pero, algo que me ha dado cuenta de que es en la mision (y estaban dijo algo acerca de esto tambien) es la oportunidad de reconocer nuestras debilidades en l avida. He reconocido muchas cosas que pensaba que eran mis fortalezas en realidad son mis debilidades. y no debemos sentirnos tristes por reconocer esto porque ahora el Señor puede ayudarnos porque nos hemos puestos humildes (como dice en eter 12:27) testifico de esto, que cuando reconocemos nuestras debilidades, debemos ponernos felices por la oportunidad de crecer y fortalecer esta debilidad. Comparto esto en el nombre de Jesucristo amen!
