What a great week! Most of this week was spent getting everything ready for the baptism of Roy! And I am so glad that we spent time to get everything ready, because it really did pay off. It was such a great and spiritual experience for everyone. Practically the whole group came!! All except for one family! We all took a big bus to Morales (about an hour away) And had the service in the church there.
Roy was beaming after.
We also had a lesson this week with José on the Atonement of Jesus Christ. It was by far the most powerful lesson I have taught on my mission yet. After, Hermana Geronimo and I were like, ¨ Wow, did you feel that?!¨ It was amazing. And the gift of tongues is a very real thing. As we were teaching my mind was so clear, and everything just flowed. And then as we were talking that night, Hermana Geronimo told me that she was amazed at how I spoke with very few errors. And José normally has problems understanding me, but not once he asked for clarification. And Hermana Geronimo said that she also learned a lot from the lesson. I don´t share this to make you think that I did anything. Because I know that there is no way that I can speak, teach, and help others feel the Spirit ALL IN SPANISH without divine help.
We also had divisions this week in St.Tomas! It was an adventure to work in another area. Made me super grateful for Los Amates!! That being said, we had some super great lessons. And it really is amazing, during lessons, if we are in tune with the Spirit, we really can be prompted to say just the right thing. I did not know the needs of many of the investigators, but we were able to teach them according to their needs with lots of help from the Spirit!
Ponderizing: Enos I love the diction in this scripture! First off, it is ¨after¨ we pray AND labor WITH diligence that we can have the desires of our hearts. BUT we have to have Faith.
Love you all tons! Have a great week!!
