This week was good with the San Blas elders. We found 10 new investigators and set a few baptismal dates. The hard part is getting them to attend church, but we did get one of them to come and this guy is crazy smart. Sometimes I’m a little nervous because some of the questions he asks are nuts. Like dude, just read the Book of Mormon, focus on your feelings, and shut off. You dont need to know how spirit prison was formed man. Haha but he has a sweet spirit and a desire to learn so I think he will do great and I’m excited to teach him.
This week I really saw the gift of tongues. It’s weird because I can speak Spanish just fine and I don’t have too many problems. Until I forget to ask Heavenly Father for the gift of tongues and then I feel like I’m still in my first week of the mission. Heavenly Father definitely reminded me this week that He’s in charge and He has helped me learn Spanish. I forgot to pray for help in that specific category one day this week. I wouldn’t say I was a mess but I would say I struggled. So I repented and asked for the Divine help.
Me and Elder Chamberlain, who has 3 months in the mission, were talking in the church bathroom and he just started laughing so hard. I was like…. what the??…. and then he just spit out “I only have 3 months in the mission!!!!” I started busting up laughing so hard and then it hit me and I said “I’m not even half way.” we had a good laugh and talked about how weird the time is, and how he will enjoy it more when he has a companion that gets out of bed. I love him and we have plans to go to school together after.
Elder Koyle is dope. We are getting along and the weeks are moving quicker. So that’s cool. I would definitely say the hard part about the mish so far for me is that I’ve only been transferred once and I only got transferred like 25 minutes down the road so I feel like I’ve been in the same place for a fat minute. But now that we have some progressing investigators I dont even think about it too much.
It’s been a good week and I have seen the hand of the Lord. I know that He is guiding this work. I know that we are His children and He loves each one of us. He wants to help us. We aren’t alone even if we feel like we are. It’s never too late. He wants us to change and he’s waiting for it. Don’t let your past, or even your present, determine your future.
I love you all. have a great week.
