Excellent Week


So this week was excellent!

We started off the week with an awesome zone conference.  We talked about Attitude and how we can improve our own personal attitude to achieve greater success as a zone. A sister in our ward made sopaipillas for the whole zone and we watched a super motivating clip from "facing the giants."

We also found an excellent new investigator named D! She was a reference, and the first time we stopped by she wasn't there.  We decided to stop by this week and she let us in.  She accepted a baptismal date and wants her son to be baptized as well!  Were excited for them and hope everything goes well.  Her husband is paralyzed from the neck down, but is an awesome guy and has lots of faith.  This week we will start teaching the whole family.  D and her son and daughter came to church on Sunday.  The members accepted her so well that we hardly had to do anything! We are excited to see their progress.

Also, we saw the groundbreaking of the Concepcion Temple! We watched is via satellite in the stake center.  Elder Gonzalez and other General Authorities spoke about the blessing of having a temple and challenged everyone to prepare to enter while the temple is being built, using the rising walls of the temple over the next few years as a visual symbol of their spiritual progress.  Our mission president attended and translated for the wife of one of the general authorities, so it was neat to see him and Sister Bluth there.  They also a made a really cool video to go along with the ceremony that is similar to Because of Him that shows scenes of Concecpion and some members from our mission. 

We have been very blessed this week.  Its nice to know that God is our loving Heavenly Father.  Like a good parent, He is there to catch us when we fall and will keep us moving forward, but He will let us learn and grow on our own.  He will never abandon us. Even is we have a bad day, if we fail at something we worked hard at, even if all goes down the drain, we are still blessed more than we deserve, and we know that things will be alright. Thanks so much for your faith in me and your prayers.
