I miss ya, but I love my mission! It was a hard week but thankfully I was able to recognize the hand of the Lord in it.
So this week we’ve been working hard with our investigators that are closest to baptism. Chonsita can be baptized in April but she has a hard time reading and understanding the doctrine. Monday we stopped by and talked about the Book of Mormon with her and then went over the next day and read the introduction. On Wednesday she had read all the way to Mosiah!!!!! It was awesome! She loves the book of Mormon and is always happy to have us speak with her. She came to church and loved it too. She’s going to a relief society activity on Thursday. The only problem with her is coffee and the fact that she has a boyfriend while her husband lives in Honduras . . . . so yeah there’s a bit of a problem with that, but were working on it.
Our other investigator Ingrid came to church again, but she is struggling with word of wisdom too, especially the coffee. Her mom at first said she could be baptized but then changed her mind so now Ingrid is afraid to push the subject of being baptized.
Our other investigator that is close to baptism is Alejandra. She is a cousin to a recent convert and loves the church. The only problem is she lives super far away so she couldn’t make it to church this week; but next time for sure, so she should be baptized the week of General Conference.
We had interviews with president and it was so great, he is such a great man! He always shares so much amazing scriptures, stories, and insights, and I know he is inspired to say what he says.
This week my comp and I were talking about ways we could improve things in our area. We talked about how in the scriptures they were able to be successful through their "mighty prayers and fasting", in particular the sons of Mosiah. We want to be missionaries like them, so this week we prayed a whole lot and fasted twice. We recently found some AMAZING people that are so willing to hear the gospel, especially a young man named Alan. He’s 19 and has gone to church a lot but has never visited with the missionaries. He loves the church and wants to be a part of it. We have a lesson with him today. It was just one of the many great experiences this week and I know the Lord has a lot more to offer if I’m obedient, faithful and patient.
Love and miss you tons! Until next time.
