WORST WEEK EVER
Just kidding I just like to give Mom stomach aches =)
This week definitely had some trials but in all was an awesome week! The Spirit is guiding us so much more in our work as we try to pray more and pay more attention . . . During the week, we didn’t know where to go so we sat on the sidewalk and said a prayer real fast. I got the feeling that we needed to visit some lady that we passed by almost every day, but it was really far away. Well . . . When the Spirit tells you to go somewhere you should definitely do it or He won’t respond again! So off we went. We finally got there and . . . !!!! The lady wanted absolutely nothing to do with us . . . Hahahaha. She is like a die hard Catholic. She wouldn’t stop saying, "I can never abandon my Mary. She means everything to me. My Mary does everything for me." I was like uhhhhhh yeahhhhhh . . . You need to read the commandments but alright! So she DID say that some guy had been at her house that talked really well about our church so of course we had to investigate. She gave us his business card and we went off hunting him down. It was already really late but the Spirit was tellin’ us what to do so I couldn’t let tired feet make me stop. Anyways, we finally found his house andddd . . . It was the house of Luis Eduardo! The Baptism I had right when I got here in Atalaia. The guy’s name was Jair but we were way confused because he was a major drunk and he and his wife had separated. Anyways, he came back and the family is complete again. We invited him to church and explained how the Spirit had less us there. The whole family said they would go to church again but no one showed up on Sunday -______- I don’t know. I just know that, once again, the Lord held up his end of the deal to help them. He sent us there. It is so cool to be a tool in the hand of God like that. To know He really does watch over us and take care of us. I hope the whole family gets their butts back to church . . . The Lord is calling!!
This month was nutty for our Zone. We were set up to have so much success. Our Zone was set out to do so well and Satan just FOUGHT against us. It was crazy. That dude is so scared of us!!!!!! I love my Zone!!!! We are totallly gonna crush the serpents head in August!!!!!! Gonna be LEGIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #MormonSwag #SatanSucks
We have a meeting with our Stake President tomorrow morning to see what he would like from us and how we can work better with him. I don’t think Missionaries here EVER have meetings with leadership other than with our Ward Mission Leader. That needs to change. We can’t grow without some sort of larger unity. The Missionaries are meant to support stakes and wards not just knock doors and walk around all day. So we are gonna see what we can accomplish at this meeting.
Meetings with our Ward Mission Leader are awesome. He just got back from his Mission a few months back and helps a lot when we bring people to church. It’s kinda complicated in our area because we don’t have many members but we are going to try better to utilize the members we DO have. Our Mission Leader is pretty busy with work and school so for him to get to our area to help doesn’t go very well. Especially because he can’t drive . . . But he helps in every way he CAN which is really nice.
We are trying to get Rafson the Priesthood and Bishop said that that could happen in like two weeks. I would like to have more meetings with Bishop. He is AWESOME. But we don’t have much of an idea of what his plans or visions are . . . I think we just need to Baptize . . . Hahaha =)
Well this letter was long! I sure love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Be good, be safe, write lots!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
