A lot of people would say that the week we had was a crumby one but I just can’t bring myself to saying it. There are just too many miracles to be a crumby week!! We have been trying to find miracles in each and everyday and what we have come to find is that usually by the night time when we are talking about it, there are just too many to even remember! The Lord sure loves his children.
This week we worked a lot with Manuel to get him excited and feeling good about accepting another baptismal date. We started asking him about all the things we have taught him and if he knows that they are true and he told us yes. So them we asked him what was keeping him from being baptized and he sat there thinking for a bit and then said that nothing was. We planned his interview for Thursday and he showed up! He had his interview and… he needs more time. We will see if in this week or the next he can be baptized.
Its been such a great experience to be able to work with so many different people and adapt to their needs. I know that the timing of the Lord 99.9% of the time is NOT our timing. But I also know that the Lords ways are higher than ours and he knows 100% what he is doing. I feel like I am a knight for the King in the game of chess and it really has been the greatest game I have ever played (i guess this analogy doesn’t work very well because i never liked chess…but lets just pretend i loved it and was really good) But really we just have to do everything that we can to keep the King alive…or in this case, to share the message of the Kings =) I LOVE IT! I love sharing the gospel and talking to strange people in the street, inviting everyone to hear! There is absolutely no way you can go wrong by accepting the gospel. It only improves things. Living the gospel won’t take away the problems of live, but it makes it more enjoyable. It helps us to live more happy!
I love you guys so much! Thanks for being mine!
Have the best week ever.
Its been16 months away from each other!
oh yeah! I forgot to tell you guys really good news! I don’t know if you remember but when I was in Tlalpan we were teaching a lady named Elsa. Well it turns out that she actually lives in the area of Hidalgo. We started teaching her again about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Else Aguirre is her name. She has been progressing so much!!!! these last 2 Sundays she has gone to church with us! WOO HOO =) She has a testimony of the importance of baptism and everything but i think she is scared to accept a baptism date. we gotta pray hard for her! =)
