¡Hola a Todos!
For those of you who are wondering… yes it is cold here…. And
this week are changes! Where did this change go?? I have no idea!! I
have been a proud father for a little bit under 6 weeks now! My
young Ecuadorian son is doing really well! I basically have him
do everything now! Not in a commanding way… but start lessons,
initiate contacts…. To gain more confidence! This week flew by though!
Tomorrow night we will now the changes! I hope I don’t leave this place! And
man I hope they don’t close us! We had 48 people in the house chapel
yesterday! Which I think is a record!!! We had a family from a different ward
come visit us! They were 10!! The Elders were called on to speak. Again! That
makes 2 times this month… On top of our calling as Ward Mission
Leader missionaries and (for me) Young Men's President… it would really
be nice if the Branch could do something for itself!
Yesterday we got
called over by an old guy who wanted a free bible. After explaining that we
couldn’t give him a bible he asked to see the book we had… the Book of
Mormon…. He looked at it a few seconds. And then said… it doesn’t have
Genesis…. It can’t be true. After explaining that the book of Mormon and the
Bible were written in different parts he said… but they’re not the
same…. After using what seemed like 1000 examples to try and explain it he
said please just leave…. How can some people be SO close minded? If they love
the bible and the Word of God so much why are they scared of having more?
Oh wait I know why! Because they don’t understand the word of God!
There are hundreds of examples in both books that support one
Pampinos are a hard people…. All that being said, I feel I will
be here one more change… if the area is still open…. If not, I will be having
emergency transfers the first of Abril! YAY!! …emergency transfers…
we had a great week! We found 6 NEWS WOWIE WOW WOW!!! We were teaching an
investigator who has received the lessons for years… but his dad won’t let him
get baptized! Who always gives us references… for the ward (which is
sad?) Anyway, we taught all his buddies, all 4 of them, and I think we will have
success with this crew.
