MATTHEW 6: 19-23 Email 9/8/2014

Home sweet home!

MONDAY, all we did was play a little soccer and some ping pong. Nothing super special…well, we did make hamburgers for lunch. yum! haha
TUESDAY, we studied a ton and I found some really good scriptures that I liked a lot! In matthew 6 verses 19 to 23. Then after we got some references that we will be visiting sometime during this next week! Then we just taught some recent converts and thats about it!
WEDNESDAY, we taught jean franko, our investigator. He is progressing a lot, he just doesnt have a big desire to get baptized quite yet but we will see. We taught about the Sabbath day and he understood it perfectly. I dont think that he is going to miss another Sunday. haha. Then later I helped some people with English again. I think we are going to start English classes here because I am helping so many people with it. haha.  What better teacher than a gringo!  haha
THURSDAY, today was cool because we found a new less active to teach. He was baptized when he was like 8 or 9 and then stopped going. He is now about 35 ish and has a small family, so hopefully we can teach them too! As we work hard, we start to see the blessings, and its awesome! Work, work, work, like it says in preach my gospel! Best way to have success in the mission! 
FRIDAY, today we had a cool lesson with a recent convert. He is about 65. We talked about baptisms for the dead and he was overjoyed to learn it because his wife has passed away.. but now he knows that she can receive the ordinances that she needs in order to be in that spirit paradise! From there we tried to go and get some new references from some families! 
SATURDAY, today we visited and investigator named javier. We were going to teach him about the plan of salvation, but I got a prompting to teach about the restoration, so we did! and it went great! The spirit was super strong and he is going to read the book of Mormon and pray about it! The only problem is that he is going to travel somewhere so we cant visit him again for 2 weeks... but its ok! The Lord will provide! Then we also found another less active family! and they have a daughter who isnt a member! New investigator! wahoo!
SUNDAY, was fast Sunday. It went well. I love to just sit and think inside the chapel. It helps you understand things easier because the spirit is always there. I just love it. So then we had lunch and talked to that family for a second, then later had a super spiritual family home evening. We watched one of those Mormon messages and then I shared some scriptures and my testimony. The spirit is officially the best feeling ever!  Some of the recent converts were in tears. I’m just glad that they could feel that spirit because that is what is going to help them keep on enduring to the end. They need the spirit a lot right now in these first stages of their membership. So awesome! So thats about it! Thanks again for the email. i love you all and hope that you all have a great next week! love yall!
