I guess I will finish what I started last week now. Hahaha!
We come home no later than 9:00 after proselitismo. Then we say a prayer and plan who we are going to visit the next day and call our district leader, Elder Flores, for our daily report.
Finally, we change and sit back for a cup of hot chocolate (so nice!) and talk for about half an hour before bed.
Anyways, there it is! You´re right, I am learning a lot about how to better manage my time better and just good life skills, like you said. ;)
Last week on Monday night we had a really good noche de hogar! We invited one of our investigator families, Familia Munguia, and Familia Flores, our ex-investigators who had not been making any progress. Only Familia Munguia could come though.
|At the stake activity. ;D|
On Tuesday we had divisions! I worked in our area with Elder Flores. He is a really, really good elder. It is really hard to find elders who are as focused on the Work as he is. He walks really fast, talks to everyone he can on the calle, and almost thirsts after lessons. He is a really good example for me. By the end of the day, though, I was already missing Elder Leatherow. Man, I wish you all knew him! He is the greatest trainer there ever was, and I hope I can work up to where he is now.
Wednesday, we had a really spiritual experience at our correlation meeting with our mission leader, Oscar Reyes. He asked us at the end of the meeting why we had come out on missions, if it was just because our parents wanted us to, or if it was out of love for the Lord. I just answered, ¨Nuestra voluntad,¨ and he started to cry. He told us to never stop believing in the things we are teaching as missionaries. He told us to always believe in the Book of Mormon, that Joseph Smith was a prophet, the gospel really has been restored to the earth.
I pledged again that night to stay true to what I have learned.
I know the Church is true, without any doubts. Jesus Christ atoned for our sins so that we can return to His presence again. Joseph Smith was a prophet. Through him, the Church was restored and the Book of Mormon translated. Thomas S. Monson is a prophet viviente of God. God loves us all more than we can imagine. I want to give back to Him as much I have received.
On Saturday we had a stake activity. But it was different than any activity I have been too. Pretty much all of the wards in the stake came, set up tables for themselves, and sold dinner and desserts for the members. Nothing was free or anything! Weird, huh? ;) As missionaries we had our own table. We provided missionary pamphlets, DVDs, pass-along cards, and a box for where people could place any references they had. The stuff on our table was free though. ;D It was fun!
I hope you have an awesome week!
Your favorite younger son,
