Happy New Year!
Woohoo, 2016! It`s a new year, lots of new adventures and goals….it should be great:)
This week has been another good one. We were able to work a bit new years eve and then we had new years day off for p-day and we spent it in Eldorado with our district playing games and hanging out. It was alot of fun.
We`ve also had alot of good experiences this week. We have this couple that we started teaching, Leo and Loraina, and they are really cool. We had a lesson with Leo who believes in God but doesn`t really have a religion and says that none of it really makes sense and so we started teaching him with a member and taught him about the plan of salvation because he had lots of questions and he just loved it. You could really see his atitude change from the start until the end of the lesson…it`s cool to see how the spirit works with people and the scripture is definitely true that says “many are kept from the truth, only because they know not where to find it…” so after the lesson he invited us to come back this last week to teach his girlfriend who has stronger beliefs but who was really open and we were able to teach them the Restoration and give them a Book of Mormon and it went super well and they promised to start reading this week and told us to be prepared for questions because they are really curious…yep, it was cool. It`s amazin in the mission how one can go all day in the hot sun getting burned and rejected just to have the mercy of getting into one house and begin to teach and then see the light that comes into their eyes when the spirit begins to work on them and everything changes…..it just makes everything worth it:)
The gospel is great and it`s true:) Hope everyone had a good week!
