Buenas Tardes. So Elder Bradbeer and I figured out today that day light savings time has passed and so now you guys are on the same time as us! Cool cool.
I got up super early to go with Elder Solis to the New Missionary training meeting. That was a lot of fun. Even after going to that meeting a lot I always receive new wisdom and counsel from President and Sister Russell, and its always fun to talk with everyone and eat a hamburger from Burger King during lunch.
and were days just to work super, super hard and that's what we did. Thursday night we contacted a lady who just started crying when we talked to her. She expressed that during December her mother had passed away. Even as she has been very religious her whole life, she had a lot of questions about death and the what happens after we die. She didn't have much time to talk, but we set a return visit with her. She has a very busy work schedule but we are going to talk more with her .
So this week has gone by super fast but not without its tough days.
I really have tried to live my mission by the teachings of DyC 123:17.we worked and worked, but seemed to have very little success. It was after and we were tired and ready to go back to the house. But as always we kept working. We decided to pass by a family that we contacted the day before and when we knocked on the door nobody came out. We knew they were there but just didn't come out. We left ans then felt like we needed to come back after about 30 minutes. They then answered the door and we spoke with them for a bit and put a baptismal date with them! Wahoo!!! After we turned the corner we all started running and giving each other high fives because we were so happy. The mom came to church as well. It's a small family with two small boys. I know that our Heavenly Father blesses us as we do all we can then as we apply his atonement.
We had a few other big blessings yesterday as we have seen our Heavenly Father prepare a way for our investigators to enter into the waters of baptism. Allan was baptizedand is excited to go to seminary with his older brother Marcello.
I really love Mosiah chapter one through four. Especially chapters three and four. They are amazing prophecies from King Benjamin of Jesus Christ and his atonement. I challenge you guys to read it this week. What a fantastic week it is to remember our Savior Jesus Christ. In Nicaragua they take the whole week to remember Christ and his atonement. I hope we can all remember Him. He died on the cross for you and me, but he rose again the the third day. He lives. He lives and guides this church.
The work is great. This is the true Church. He lives.
