I'm still outside

Sunday, March 27, 2016

Sunday was a little bit crazy, we swung by the house of an investigator so that we could go to church together. She wasn't there... Boo..  but, as we knocked on the door, another woman came up to us and said you teach about God and the Bible right?  We said yes.  And she said you have to help my son who's only 13 and says that he's an atheist. We went by to meet her son and invite him to go with us.  He Went! Then we had an appointment with him on went really well he decided to invite his friends and we are getting to know a lot of new people thanks to him. It's funny how God works. 
Later that night... We had a question.  Everything had failed.  EVERYTHING.  So we had a question, should we visit Miguel or Pedro?? My comp and I both felt like we should go to Miguel, and on the way I felt like we should go faster. Like a sudden urge that we needed to talk to him.  We got to his door and his girlfriend said that he had just left. So we went to the corner where the taxis are and we had to run and yell his name because he was almost in the car.  He saw us and got out. We went back to his house to talk for a moment there.  He told us that he had given up on the church. Wow!  We asked why. He said, he can just never do everything I know I'm supposed to... In that moment we felt so much love for him. He was just trying to be good and keep the commandments and realized that it's hard. We said that if God planned on giving up on us from the beginning he wouldn't have ever sent Christ.  We wouldn't go to church.  The church wouldn't exist.  If the commandments were impossible to keep God wouldn't have given them to us.  And if we were all supposed to perfect within the first year of our baptism... we would all go to hell.  We then read what is says in
Romans 8:
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, for thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Later this week we found a family from a different Church with ideas that I have never even heard of! They finally asked us why we talk and teach so much about Jesus Christ. I almost laughed my head off!  WHY?!  He is the savior of the world.

On Saturday we went on a hike with President and Sister Henderson.  The hill is called the Fryer or Presidents head.  It was a bald spot.  We went more or less 15 kilometers so not too bad!  Anyway i'll send pictures tonight or tomorrow.

Sonriendo Siempre,
