Man, this week was a great one!! It was super busy but that is definitely how the mission should be!! It was filled with getting off the bus at the wrong place therefore getting lost. Filled with capllas abiertas, and lots of new investigators and baptismal dates!! The Lord truly does prepare people to receive his restored gospel!!
This week Hermana Chadwick and I had to go up to Salinas and pick up some stuff from the hermanas there...well it was definitely an adventure because we didn't know how to get there and as a result got off the bus about forty minutes early. We were then stranded on the side of the road until another bus came, which was about 20 minutes. Well that bus then broke down! Third time is a charm right? But in the end we got there just a lot later than we had expected!!
We also had a capilla abierta in el bosque, which is a part of our zone! It was amazing we had one guy come in off the street and we gave him the tour and in the room with the baptismal font he asked if all of this was just tradition. When we talk about baptism in a capilla abierta the elders teach that part and it was really cool to work with the elders along side with the members and testify to him that it isn't just a tradition that we follow from our parents, but rather something that we all had to come to know was true for ourselves! The spirit was so strong in that room and he promised to come to church the next day!!
Hermana Chadwick and I have been working our tails off!! We have been putting goals to find new people to teach and as a result in the last two weeks we have found 11 new investigators, five of which have a baptismal date! Our agenda is filled every hour with a set charla and we just don't have time for anything!! But it is so amazing! The Lord is truly preparing people to receive his gospel and for the second coming of our Savior! I have truly felt the presence of my Heavenly Father guiding us to those that are ready to receive the restored gospel!
But the best part is that we have evidence of all that we do and say which is the Book of Mormon that truly testifies that we have a living profeta on the earth today!! I know that if we will truly ponder and think of a question that this weekend we will receive the answer to that question through our prophet and his apostles! I know that this is the true church of Christ here on the Earth and that Thomas S. Monson is his living prophet on the Earth today. He is receiving revelation fro our Heavenly Father specifically for us and if we will listen to him and apply it we will draw unto our savior and feel of his presence eve more in our lives! I love you all and I hope you have a great week!
