One of the couples we have been working with, the husband has been off drinking. Alcohol seems to destroy families. It destroys families.
We went to Xela for the leadership council. In the leadership council. Our President shared a story of seagulls that over the years became dependent on the shrimp boats to toss them scraps. They never learned to fish and didn´t teach the little seagulls either for a long time. So then when the shrimp company moved away they began dying in the abundance of fish because they didn´t know how.
The comparison is that we must develop our own faith and can´t rely on the faith of others. We must also teach our investigators so that they have a strong testimony, so when we leave, they are strong and don’t fall away.
Elder Garcia promised Hno M if he came to church his sales would go better this week. It has worked. On Monday and Tuesday he almost doubled his earning from those two days the week before.
We had the opportunity to teach the plan of salvation to a lady whose husband died 2 months ago. It is something so essential and comforting. She is evangelical and they know nothing about it. I am so grateful for my knowledge of where we come from, why we are here, and where we are going.
We were called by Hna D asking for a blessing before her doctor’s appointment and needed a blessing. They came to the church. She explained that she was nervous she wasn´t doing as well as she needed to, and other worries. I was in the same church about 11 months ago when she was in the same situation. I reminded her of that experience how she had overcome it. I know the Lord has us where we need to be and it was not coincidence that I was here as the Zone Leader for her again.
One afternoon we met with Hno Abularach an area 70. He is from the capital in charge of Institute and seminary. The meeting in Huehue was to get the new converts enrolled in these programs.
We were able to teach the plan of salvation to a young lady that is 20 and lives with her mom. She told us what we had taught her was new and she really liked it.
To add to the list of weird foods I have eaten goes pig blood- Moronga. I didn´t really taste it because we put it on top of an egg taco, but it wasn´t horrible.
Please pray that this week all goes well with the paper work for the marriage, and family baptism. Love you all.
