Well folks, this week was one for the books! First off, I am 9 months into the mission. THAT IS CRAZY!!! And well here is a quick overview of the rest of the week!
-We had a Family Home Evening with a family that we have reactivated and with some investigators, and it went suuuuuuper well! And the reactivated family is now on the ball. They are always giving us names of people we can visit.
-We are now able to do 3 way divisions!! That is just about the coolest thing because we are 3X more effective!!! :) The sisters in the branch are sure helping us a ton! And for the first time in my mission we had more lessons with members than we did without!!
-Rebecca: So she is 24 yrs old. The only family member that hasn't passed away is her aunt. She lives alone and is going to school. She is really great, and this week she read the pamphlet that talks about the plan of salvation and was super happy when we told her that she really can be with her family again.
-We found a new family!! Ana Virginia and Victor Alejandro! They are so awesome! More to come on them next week!
-We had divisions with the Hermanas in San Jorge. That was fun. We got eaten alive by mosquitoes! That was not fun. But it sure made me thankful for my area! :)
-We had a movie night with the branch, and we had 15 investigators show up! That was pretty awesome!! And when we got there they were having problems with the disk. So us missionaries got together and said a prayer that everything would work out. Well a few moments later the other missionary remembered that he also had Meet the Mormons on his USB that was in his house. So they ran to their house to get the USB. Well the USB worked, and it taught me a lesson that Heavenly Father does answer our prayers, but not always in the way we expect!
-Maribel is getting baptized !! Pray that everything goes smoothly!! :)
Ponderizing: D&C 101:36 ¨Wherefore, fear not even unto death; for in this world your joy is not full, but in me your joy is full.¨ This just reminds me that even if we think we are happy here, we are going to be EVEN MORE happy after this life!! But I also thought about how the world offers lots of THINGS to make us ¨happy¨, phones, money, advancements, movies, etc, but these things will not bring us JOY. We find JOY in Jesus Christ and in his church. We find JOY in living the Gospel. We find JOY in being obedient. And if we can find JOY in these things while here on the earth, we are going to be so very joyful in the life to come.
Well I love you all. Have a great week!
