Week 88

Como se dice... Carro

Well this week was another good one!  We found a few new very hopeful people so that made the week amazing!

One of the things that I learned while we were teaching a sister is the fact we need to show people the necessity of the gospel in their lives.  We were trying to help her with her job (shes sells things) and we were talking about how she needs to show people that their service is not good, and they need a new one.  And my companion and I kind of had a mini revelation that we were going about contacting in the wrong way.  We need to show people that this is the only true gospel, and its something that they honestly need.  The way we have been doing it is just asking people what happens to the people that pass away without being baptized.  No one has a real answer because this was one of the lost truths from when Jesus Established his doctrine, and it really gets ahold of people, and its helped us out a lot in this week!  So ask your friends inspired questions so they start thinking and have that thought in their mind!
Besides that just one little funny story, theres always a couple of little kids in the street that ask us how do you say certain words while we walk by, and they are the easiest words in english possible, stuff that sounds the same.  Its always a laugh when they just yell out "hey how do you say carro."
Love you all!

Week 85

Cambio De Corazon

This week was filled with travels and little things to take care of, but no one wants to hear about that!

We were able to have a great lesson this saturday.  We ended up eating with a family where only the son is member, so we got into the subject on why the family hadnt been baptized yet, and the mom just talked about not wanting to change her traditions.  So we explained what our true purpose here is on earth, and we were able to teach her that we are here to progress and change and become more like our heavenly father. 
I have realized in these last few weeks that repentance isnt only our actions but as well the way we think.  The thoughts that we have are a huge reminder of who we really are.  To become like God starts with our personal thoughts and opinions, and we need to find the way to help those become like gods thoughts.
Not much else to report! 
Love you all!

Week 84


So im finally getting settled in to my new area, and let me tell you, the heat is not missed hahah.
This week was fairly busy, we moved two houses, and had a few meetings, but we had some decent time to work, and we found some cool new people.  This ward is super supportive, and the members are great.  So im pretty dang excited.

I also got a nice welcome in church, they called me up to speak without telling me before hahaha.
Our zone is gonna be fun as well.  We have some of the most capable missionaries ive had the opportunity to work with, and the areas here are great, so im excited.  

Besides that all is well!  Just a change week, and its been awesome.

Love you all!
