welllllllllllllll how is the school schedule going?????? Sounds like everyone is back to normal, so now the emails will be less exciting….. bueno, mejor para mí, jajajaja
Welllll, the title there is very ineresting, no? I suppose its because i have written so many emails that i just have run out of titles….. ill try and be a little more creative with my titles.
well, this week was a fun one!!!! We had an awesome zone conference!!! It was super fun and the missionaries commented that they learned a lot, so it was a success!!! Thats always a plus!!! Then we lost an ENTIRE day of work…. we had a leadership meeting in Maipú so we got back at like 7 at night, changed, and went straight to Ward Council, so we didnt get to work at all….. but the leadership meeting was super cool!!! The mission will be implementing a new trainging method to help the mission put new principles into practice, so i am super excited to be able to help with that!!!!
A super awesome thing happened this week. friday, we didnt have too muh success…. and then saturday EVERYTHING but one lesson fell through…. so we literally walked up and down hills the whole day…. And we tried talking to everyone but nothing happened (although, the lesson we did have went AMAZING!!! It was with the mom of a few recent convertrs. She is pretty shy and was almost baptized with the other missionaries, so we went by and shared our favorite scriptures and had her daughters share theirs as well and all went super well, so that was a HUGE blessing) and then sunday NOTHING was happeneing. We were talking to everyone, appointments fell through and we were just like “well, when there is this much opposicion, a miracle must be nearby” so we kept working and tried hard to follow the spirit! Well, we felt prompted to go to a different part of the sector that our plans said and we started contactig there. We knocked on one door and a mother and her daughter answered. Well, we started talking and she mentioned that she didnt trust in churches….. so we quickly testified of the restoration and she invited us in. Well, we couldnt enter because there wasnt a man in the house so we asked if she could bring a few chairs and we could talk in the street and she said yes. So we started talking and explained the Restoracion with a cool puzzle thing we have that explains the need of Profets, Apostoles, authority, and so on. Well, we then left a folleto for them and they commited to read and pray and the mother said “you knoe what, other religions come by frequently and i never accept their book because i know i wont read them…. but this message interests me a lot so i am going to read it!” and we were super grateful to hear that!!!! Such a miracle that through the spirit and by testifying of the Restoracion, we helped that the message arrived in her heart and gave her interest in this message that we share!!!!
Sé que la Restauración es el mensaje singular que proclamamos. Es un mensaje que NADIE más puede compartir. Sé que al testificar de ello, podremos ayudar a que el Espíritu llegue al corazón de estas personas para que puedan saber por ellas mismas de que este mensaje es divino, verdadero, y que les va a bendecir en sus vidas. Sé que Dios nos ama, y que como una demostración de Su amor, Él llamó a José Smith para que fuera el profeta por medio del cual Él pudo restaurar Su iglesia en la tierra. Estoy agradecido por la restauración del Evangelio, por la autoridad del sacerdocio, y por el conocimiento más claro que nos da el Libro de Mormón. De esto testifico en el nombre de Jesucristo, amén!
