This week was full of some pretty crazy ups and downs. We had a lot of progression wit investigators and few crazy things happened. First off, with the Flia Vidourre, their date got moved back to the 3rd because there is a camping trip for the YW and Diana wants to go, so they thought it would be better for her to go and move the date to the 3rd. They are still super excited for everything and they read and pray as a family everyday. We had a cool experience with them yesterday. After church we went to visit them with the YW president and we taught them about the Word of Wisdom. That was what we had planned to teach and just when we got there, they were drinking coffee and talking. We told them that we cant drink coffee and she just directly said " ok, if the Lord wants it, i can leave it." I was super happy to hear that they are so willing to change everything to be baptized.
We also had a cita with Renan, Selena, Darwin and Lidia. We taught about the Sabbath Day and Darwin promised us that he would go, that he wasn't going to keep waiting. He finished his prayer at the end of the visit saying " I promise you that we will go to church" It was a really cool to hear that too because he always said "ill do everything i can to go" but never went. On Sunday, he got there late, but he went. We had a really good Gospel Principles class and he was super happy, he found one of his friends that recently got baptized and they were talking for a while. But he had parked his moto really close to the exit and when he left to go home from church , his moto was gone. He left and went to look for it but he never did. We tried to call him but he wouldn't answer and we still haven't been able to get a hold of him. It makes me really sad. He went to church and was super happy, they were progressing, and now we don't really know what to do. But we haven't lost hope for them, we are going to keep passing by and visiting them to help them move forward.
Today i was studying about Humility. And i love the part that says "Humility is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign of spiritual strength." I thought about how the strongest people and the strongest leaders are always humble. And i read a verse in Alma 60. 36 Behold, I am Moroni, your chief captain. I seek not for power, but to pull it down. I seek not for honor of the world, but for the glory of my God, and the freedom and welfare of my country. And thus I close mine epistle. I like how it shows that Moroni was humble, that he looked to glory his God and to bless the lives of other people, without anything in return from the world. That is Humility, is look for the things of God and not the temporal things of this world.
That's it for this week. I hope everything is going good at home and hope you are all happy.
