March 21st, 2016

Hola everbody,
This week was pretty good. We had a lot more citas this week than last week and we got some new investigators too. We met one girl named Lucy while contacting. She pretty cool and she is super prepared . We met her on tuesday, had a lesson Thursday and Saturday and there was a baptism in the ward and she went. It was a little annoying though because there was a soccer tournament going on outside and it was super loud and there were a couple YSA people in the baptism messing around and making jokes so it was pretty irreverent and she didnt seem to like it very much. But we have a cita with her tomorrow so well see what happens.

Yesterday we contacted a family. We taught them about the Restauracion and they told us that were grateful that we visited them and they accepted a baptismal date for the 16th of April. They were super cool and they were both crying and they kept thanking us for coming by. Unfortunatly next week is cambios [transfers] and we have 5 baptisms set up for next cambio that i probably wont be here for. 

In church yesterday, everything was about the Atonement. The talks, and the classes. And i was reading in Alma 7 today and i read verses 11 and 12 :

11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.

12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.

These verses just make me think of how much stuff he had to suffer for us. And how he did it all willingly because of the perfect love that he has for all of us. He suffered not just the sins, but every pain that we feel, every temptation that we feel every day, and he overcame them for all of us.

Thats all i got for this week. Saturday was Fathers Day here so i want to wish all the Fathers out there a Happy Bolivian Fathers Day.Hope you all have a good week.
