This week the kids of one of our investigators came with us to the FHE with a member family. They are very well behaved kids. One thing that was explained about having FHE is it can be used to work out problems as a family. I thought it was interesting that we do that as missionaries in the weekly planning session and continue doing so as a family in the FHE.
That night I sat reflecting on the trials and tribulations we all must pass through and hope and pray that I can trust more in the Lord. I know the trials we are given are for a wise purpose. I know the Lord will strengthen us and help us to progress.
We visited a member and asked if we could do anything to help her. We set up a tentative service project plan.
I went to the hospital.....
Well enough of the suspense. We went as a zone to do service. The sister we visited on Tuesday asked us to help, and it was unexpected because we weren`t going to be able to but then they gave us permission. And thus the subject line. Anyways 10 of the zone members cleaned the laundry room and I with 3 others carried a bunch of boxes from one room into a storage room. It was fun to serve.
One afternoon we went to a part of the area I have never been to, we nicknamed it El Rincon. We found some new investigators. We met one family that recently lost their father. We taught them the plan of salvation, the hope of a better world, and seeing loved ones again. It was successful. We taught another the law of chastity, the importance of marriage.
During the week we met a lady that said we will only be resurrected in spirit. I said Christ has a resurrected body and Satan doesn`t. We continued to also teach her daughter and daughter-in-law.
Thursday night we got a reference from a member that a joven (youth) wanted to be baptized. He has been working with a member. He wants to go to church and learn more and be baptized. We taught him and he seems very positive. It was reaffirmed that the Lord is preparing people it just takes time and patience.
I am so grateful to be part of this work and to recognize the Lord preparing people to be taught. I know that He lives and guides us. Thank you all for your love and support.
