Hi family!! I hope all is well and good! I am still alive which is something
that continues to surprise me in this dear town of Pampas.
This week we were
able (or God helped us) to reach our goal of 41 members in the sacrament
meeting! This has never happened in the history of the branch. Also, the four
of us missionaries are now in charge of running not one but TWO
organizations... Elders Quorum and Young Mens. Pucha!
On a super exciting
note, Hermana Luz is headed for the waters of baptism this Saturday!! She is
so ready! When we first put the date for the 28 of February she was a little
hesitant. She didn’t know if the Lord would be able to forgive her for the
things she has done. She felt a feeling I once lived hopeless, but now, it’s
incredible! She is so happy! We taught the commandments to her on Saturday
and she accepted all of them! Even the Sabbath day, this is easily the
hardest in this country! But wow is there a change in her. I am so blessed
to have seen it.
We found Luz contacting when I was with Arnez. We were
walking to a lesson. And he just stopped and said I like this door. Let’s
knock. And boom! We found the most prepared person of our missions! I
know the Spirit of the Lord told him to do that. I am happy we were
worthy to be guided to one of our sisters.
We taught a man named Juan and
his ¨Wife¨ Atzumi who this week asked us how we were able to change her
¨Husband¨ because he has a hard heart. We read 2 Nephi 33:1 when a man speaks
with the power of the Holy Spirit it carries the words to the hearts of the
children of men! Or in other words. We were just there. The Spirit is
teaching him. I'm
I know why I have had a hard mission. Because I
started it with a hard heart the Lord had to crack me down a little to
restart in the process of building. Listening to Jeffery R. Holland this week
he said, "Any evil can be undone. But it will NEVER DEVELOP INTO SOMETHING
GOOD." He also said Faith is like a rope. Easy to trust when you use it to tie
a box or your shoe. But when you hang from it you always wish you
That’s what I have for this week.
