Well first I have to wish Heidi a Happy Birthday. Mom your picture made me cry haha I know she is doing so well right now and always smiling. Thanks for your letter dad and your thoughts! Tell Brother Wellman and everyone there that I am so thankful for them and I love them!
Well we had another great week this week! Zone conference went really well. I felt the spirit really strongly and we have been seeing alot of miracles in the mission. President has been talking alot recently about diligence and faith. Me and Elder G have really been stepping things up and working to our limit. The lord has continued to bless us in many ways.
On Tuesday we found some sweet new investigators. We decided to knock part of a street in our area. We talked with J we felt like we needed to go inside and say a prayer with him. So we asked and said "Ok im going to give you guys five minutes nothing more" well more than an hour later we left after he told us his whole life story and is super interested. J is a firefighter and has had a crazy life. We also talked with his daughter who is really interested too!
We had some great lessons with M and the F family this week. We set a baptismal date with her for the 22nd of March. We brought her and her mom to Mutual for the first time this week too.
We recieved another blessing this Sunday. We have been talking with J who is the Boyfriend of one of the members in our ward. Super cool guy but with his work schedule it has been almost impossible to teach him. On Sunday after we taught the gospel principles class his girlfriend and him said they wanted to talk to us and just said. Elders he is ready hahahah. We are going to start teaching him early in the mornings.
On Sunday we found a young man named D. We were looking for someone else we had contacted and he answered the door. After talking with him for a couple minutes we asked if we could come in and share a message with him. We ended up teaching him in the street for about 40 minutes haha. D is awesome and has a million questions for us. He began to open up and tell us about some bad experiences he has had recently. He stopped for a moment and just said can you guys visit me everyday? Well we set up an appointment on Tuesday. The lord has been leading us to alot of people who are prepared to recieve the gospel and its blessings.
I feel like the Book of Mormon Prophets who could only write a hundreth part of the experiences they had. We have been seeing alot of blessings here in Asuncion and in the Zone lately. The mission really is the University of life. I am so grateful for the oppourtunity that I have been given to serve at this time in Guatemala. I think of my parents, family members, and Preisthood leaders that helped me along the way. I have a testimony of this Gospel. I know the message is true. I have seen evidences and changes not only in my own life but in the lives of all who truly embrace it. President Hinckley said once that life is like riding on an old train. There are setbacks, smoke, dirt, and delays intermixed with beautiful sunsets and exciting high speed straitaways. The trick is thanking the Lord for letting you go for a ride. Life is quite a ride and it does us all good to look around and enjoy the journey. Lets do it right and live the gospel so that we can be enriched and filled with peace.
I love you all so much! I hope you know that. Thanks for all your sacrifices and support. Until next time!
|His new shoes cannot get there fast enough. Let's hope they even make it. If not, someone is enjoying a nice pair of Ecco shoes. Crossing fingers for next week. It's been 9 weeks since we mailed the package.|
