This week and last week


I didn't write last week, so I'll do a quick summary of the last two weeks.

Last Sunday our investigator J came to church and she accepted a baptismal date on Friday! We are really excited for her.  Shes progressing really well and we hope she will get baptized next month.

Last week we also went to this little town that belongs to our sector.  We go there once a week by bus to proselyte.  We always meet interesting people there.  Last week we met a lady who lives in a cabin-ish house built next to a spring.  We are in a drought right now, but behind her house was blooming with all kinds of plants and flowers.  She brought us glasses and we drank some of the spring water, which was cold and clean and tasted great!  It was way cool.  She also has a bunch of Frank Sinatra records and her husband likes John Wayne movies haha.  She is also really receptive and we hope she progresses.

This week we had two conferences, one with our zone and one with our mission president and another zone.  They talked about faith and how we can apply it as missionaries.  It was fantastic.  We also saw a video which I think is called Because He Lives, about Christ.  It is a video the Church is going to put online on the 28th.  It is really really good!  Everyone has to see it!  As missionaries we are going to be using it daily in our proselyting.

The gospel is a beautiful process that allows us to improve daily as we come unto Christ. He has paid the price for our mistakes, so all we need to worry about is accepting Him with ¨a broken heart and contrite spirit¨ and doing our best each day.  He loves us and will lift us up in the process.  He gives us daily peace, happiness, and moments of pure joy to give us a small hint of what eternal life will be like.  It's pretty awesome.

Thanks for everything and have a great week!
