MONDAY, Pday! We played soccer, ate some food. ya. haha
TUESDAY, today we talked to Diego Mundo´s brother, who, to come to find out, isnt a member! Cool. So now we are going to try to teach them both and hopefully activate their parents. We also taught Renato today. Cool kid. He read what we had left him and prayed! Now we just need to help him recognize his answer! We then taught Manual Carrion. He is progressing slowly..... but he is progressing at least. We are going to keep working with him a little longer.
WEDNESDAY, today was a great day. We started out contacting, taught one of our contacts. cool! Then we taught Daisy. Who is progressing very well, we just need to talk to her dad now. We then taught Jorge, who I think will get baptized in the future. The only problem is that they aren’t married, but he really wants to change. Then later we taught one of Daniel Maita´s friends who doesn’t completely believe in God. Interesting, but he is curious about the church and what we teach, so we will see how this goes.
THURSDAY, today we taught an 8yr old who is preparing for baptism. Sometimes it is difficult to keep his attention, but it is cool to teach in such a basic way. We were also then able to teach Gianpierre, a recent convert who we hadn't seen for forever. It was nice to teach him after such a long time. He had been falling away a bit, but now wants to come back and stay strong.
FRIDAY, today we had an activity for Easter, which basically took all day, well not really, but a lot of time. We watched the testaments. Really cool, a ton of people loved it. So it was a success!
SATURDAY. Conference!!!! Wow I love conference! The spirit is there as we listen. I learned a lot. A lot of the speakers talked about the family. They put a big emphasis on it. Super cool! I especially loved one of the 70s talk about learning to dance. He said that someone can teach us how to dance but we have to hear the music. Or in other words, we can learn the gospel teachings but if we don't hear the spirit, to testify that it is true, then it will be hard to receive all the blessings. Just like it is hard to dance without music or a beat. Really cool.
SUNDAY, this morning I finished the Book of Mormon in Spanish for the first time! It was a neat experience to pray about it again to see if it was true. My testimony has been strengthened. The Book of Mormon is amazing… The teachings that it has helps in everything. Then we watched conference again!!! Wahoo!!!! The talks were also amazing. I love conference! haha. I like to think that we really aren't listening to our church leaders, but literally we are listening to God…. The things that He wants us to hear at this time. It is just the best. Afterwards we were able to teach one lesson to Renato. He has a lot more confidence with us and tells us how he feels. He has a strong desire to change. We just need to continue helping him find his answer from God, that this is what he has been searching for.
Well that was my week! Thank you so much for all that you have done for me. You are the best people on the face of the planet! I love you all. Happy Easter! Let us remember the true meaning of it and ponder on our Savior and the opportunities that He has given us! Love you all! Take care! Have a great next week!
