All is well in good old Peru! Although I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT
ARE THIS WEEK ALREADY!!!! My son and I are finishing week 5
and starting week 6 of 12 weeks. (the missionary training
guide). Carhuaricra is my district leader and wanted me to inform you
all about his existence.
We have been working like crazy here! Guevara
went to Lima to do his papers last week and got back on Wednesday. So we have
not had much time to work in our area. But, that being said we have found 3
new this week! Although NONE OF THEM ARE MARRIED PUCHA MAKINA!!!
the good news about is that Hermana Luz is doing great and might be called
as the Primary President.... So go her!
This Monday I had a cool
experience. I was able to be a missionary in English!! As we where having a
zona pday we went to some old ruins in Huancayo. We ran into a family from
Canada. They are here for a service project and will be in Peru for the next
3 months or so... anyway. As I talked to them I found out that they are
Protestant. I asked the man what he saw as the main
difference between our churches. We said that we see God And Christ as
separate beings when in the Bible there is lots of "evidence" that they are
the same. Hmmm... After many examples of scriptures where they are obviously
NOT the same he said... "With our mortal minds we could never understand
nor explain all the mysteries of God. Maybe it doesn't make sense... but that is
comes in." NO. God and his ways make sense... the only
reason they wouldn't is because man has changed them... God created man in HIS
OWN IMAGE and not the
other way around... and am grateful that I belong and
teach of a church that is backed up by the Bible. We didn't have to change
the Bible to prove our point... because it's the same point God has
been proving since Adam.
1. Is God the same or different than
2. Did we have prophets before?
3. Did Christ call 12
4. Does God still love us?
5. Heb 13:8
6. The end.
know that this is the true church of God. And the more I study the more I
know. I challenge every person who reads this email to Pray. Ask yourself the
above questions.. and these.
There are only three reasons that God would not
newly reveal his Gospel to a Prophet such as Joseph Smith...
1. God lost
his power to call Prophets when Christ died. No.
2. God has stopped loving
us and for that he could care less if we are saved...No.
3. Our generation
is soooo incredibly smart and righteous that we no longer need God to guide
Haha a super funny thing happened on Friday… Elder Alfonso
was looking for scripture markers and por fin he found them! Carhuaricra was lowering the price from 3 soles to 2.50 when he had
finally lowered it. Alfonso thought he could do a little better and
said, "Hermana apoyame 2.50!" Haha we made so much fun of his for that
one! We are always like Oh Alfonso Apooooyame!! Haha!
