November 11, 2013

Well another week is come and gone! Stupid time I don't know why it flies by. My companion and I were talking and we just commented that as we were diligent God blesses us and the time flies by so fast. It is ridiculous! This week was awesome! On Sunday we got a reference but we had forgot about it! So on Wednesday we went and contacted them! It was super awesome! They were super positive and ready to receive the gospel! They had already received the missionaries months ago! IT was awesome we briefly explained the Restoration and then they explained it back to us and told us that they knew Joseph Smith was a prophet and that this is the true church! IT was awesome so the next lesson we went with them we put baptismal dates with Gisela, Angie, and Carlos They are really chosen people it was an awesome experience! Then the next day we had an awesome experience we had just gotten back from being gone the whole morning and we felt the impression to go with a recent convert and as we were going there a member from another ward spoke to us and we got another reference and we went straight with them to their house to teach them! It was yet again another awesome experience that the Lord prepared for us! The lord was merciful in helping us this weekend we were really able to see many tender mercies! It was awesome! WE ended up finishing the week putting 1 more baptismal date with a young man named Roger! God is blessing us immensely for our efforts! This is definitely gods work and he loves us! Like the scriptures say this work will advance and will not be stopped! So lets all join in and get working! Hope you all have a great week!

November 4, 2013

It is crazy to think that it is Monday again and I don't really have anything to write.  It was a good week.  We went with one of the families that we have been teaching and we finally got started on their paperwork so that they can get married - that will be great.  We just need to help them progress a little bit more so that they can get baptized this month.  This week we went to a meeting with President Fortuna and I loved it.  They are the best meetings; they are all so spiritual.  On Friday we had our Zone meeting.  It was a real awesome meeting.  We all felt the spirit really strongly and everyone left the meeting excited to work and put baptism dates.  Then we started a fast on Saturday.  It was an awesome fast.  I think it was one of the most spiritual fasts that I have ever done in my life.  As we were sitting in the church on Sunday right before we ended our fast I was thinking about everything that God does for us everyday of our lives and how grateful we should be for him.  I really have come to learn and understand the importance of the sacrament.  It is the most important thing that we do in the church every week!  We are able to go and renew the covenants that we have made with God and we are able to start over again.  That is just how loving God is; he knows that we are all imperfect but his perfect plan allows us every week to start a clean sheet and try to be better.  No one else really understands that - only us as members of the church.  We are all so blessed.
