woof. ill be honest guys this is really different. i could go on for
hours about all of the stuff im learning and how great of a time im
having but its definitely very different.
its gonna be pretty short this week but let me just start off by
saying that red team lost this morning in soccer. it was
disappointing, we only hit the crossbar about 38 times, but were
looking for a bounceback next week. president had a pulled muscle in
his foot so it wasnt fair.
we had some awesome experiences this week as well during proselyting!
since we get out later to start working we just decided that we have
to search for chosen investigators. in almost every contact that were
doing we are inviting the person to get baptized and i think we´ve set
like 9 baptismal dates this week. hahaha i dont know how many will
come to church tomorrow but weve been fulfilling our goal. we have one
investigator named mario that is a stud and has plans to come to
church tomorrow. he also has a baptismal date for the 20th and on
thursday accepted to live the word of wisdom. hes making a lot of
changes in his life. hes 50 years old and hes got a lot of potencial
to keep progressing if he keeps reading and praying!
we did have a sweet experience this week though... so on tuesday we
were running a little bit late to an appt and we were waiting at the
bus stop. seriously like 3 buses passed by wihtout stopping. we were
flaggin everyone down but nobody stopped and after about 20 min i got
kind of frustrated. but i know my comp was praying in his head and i
began to as well. the next bus that cmae by we got on and there was a
convert with her family that we had lost contact with for a couple
weeks. we talked with them and set an appt and everything it was a
miracle. then after finally getting to where we needed to be we went
with our bishop to visit this one investigator who wasnt home. really
its the worst when you leave with a member and then the person ends up
not being there. but then we got the impression to pass by this one
less active, hermano ordoñez, that had contacted us a couple days
when he had contacted us we had set an appt for thursday, but even
though it was tuesday we went with the bishop. when he opened the door
he goes, i knew it! i knew it would happen! hah he invited us in
almost laughing as he looked at his two kids and goes i told them you
guys would pass by! on top of having an incredibly spiritual lesson
with this inactive ex stake councelor, we also had fulfilled a prayer.
the hermano is part of the marines in chile and figured out after
talking ot us that he had to leave for a week thursday morning. so he
told his 2 sons (non members) that the Lord would provide a way for us
to get in contact. haha so when we showed up with the bishop he was
telling us all about it! its a great fam and they have a lot of
potential to progress together. now they just need to stop working on
love you guys hope you have an awesome week. the gospel is true.
