This week we had a multizona with Elder Alonso from the seventy. we learned alot. The mission is changing and we are seeing miracles and i can feel our mission becoming really powerful. Presidente Goodman taught us about the importance of teaching the doctrine that comes with the commitments that we extend to our investigators. Now when they arent doing the things we ask them (reading, praying, going to church, getting baptized) i have to ask myself “what doctrine dont they undderstand?” this way they can understand the reason for the commitments and they can see how the gospel can bless them in their lives.
we recieved a challenge to give out a box of copies of the Book of Mormon in September. The Book of Mormon is really powerful and the key to conversion. im really excited for this challenge.
We have a few miracles that could get baptized in these next few weeks. One is Max, the husband of Anita a recent convert. He is super funny and super stubborn and has told us before that he likes his church and he is going to stay there. but then on his own he started going to church. he listens to us and likes going to church. He is reading the manual to gospel principles. We challenged him to pray about the 3 or 10 of september as a baptism date and he accepted. I have faith in him. I have seen the change in him in my months here in San Marcos. He is a really good father and man and the gospel will make him better. He will be able to have an eternal family.
on tuesday i complete 11 months!!! where has the time gone?
we got called “canchotas” in the streets. translated thats big white girls …
I love being a missionary and i have so much love for the Lord, the chapines and missionary work.
