June 27th, 2016


This week was super awesome. First off cambios were this week but nothing changed. I'm in the same area with Elder Bricher again.

We were able to teach a lot of people and a bunch are starting to progress a lot. First the Sosa family is starting to progress. We passed by and the mom told us that they were reading and praying. We didn't get a visit with them but they told us that they were reading the whole week. We have a cita with them on Tuesday so I'm pretty excited.

We visited that old couple that we found last week, Joana y Emo. They are super cool. They too were reading and praying and they were going to go to church but again had to go to the hospital yesterday. The good thing is that they are really good friends with one of the members that lives by them and they absolutely love them. That always helps when the members actually help with that.

We also this week had a pretty weird experience. We passed by one of our old investigators that we have. Its a family of 5. The parents aren't married and the guy has a problem with alcohol. When we went by he was drunk out of his mind and he told us that he had signed some papers at work that made him lose his job. Its a little weird, but now we have all the time to teach them now cause he doesn't have a job. He decided that he didn't want to drink anymore and they are starting to listen again. We invited them to be baptized, but they didn't accept a date but they said they were going to pray about it. They too have been reading the BofM all week and praying too.

I was reading in Mormon this week and found this verse about the importance of faith. Its Mormon

12 Behold, I had led them, notwithstanding their wickedness I had led them many times to battle, and had loved them, according to the love of God which was in me,with all my heart; and my soul had been poured out in prayer unto my God all the day long for them;nevertheless, it was without faith, because of the hardness of their hearts.

It just shows how important faith is. We can love according to the love of God and pour out of hearts all day but the faith that our prayers will be answered is absolutely necessary. I feel like sometimes we just kind of say prayers to say them and not with the faith that God will respond. We need to have faith that God will answer them or we wont have the miracles in our lives that we ask for.
That's about it for this week. Have a good week everybody.
