Forget yourself and WORK

This was a week that I wont remember because it went by WAY too fast! We have a family (Familia Paco) that is progressing really well and we have a lot of hope that they can enter into the gospel. They still haven't gotten an answer but they're going to keep reading and coming to church. 

We also met this crazy pastor guy that yells every-time he talks and gives us GIANT hugs every-time we see him and calls us disciples. Haha hes the best. Hes reading the Book of Mormon and is going to pray about it. He went to preach in some other place and will be back in a month or so. We´ll see how it goes with him. 

There's a lady that has recently left from the catholic church and now shes going to the evangelist church and was sure about it, but after hearing lesson one, shes a little confused but also excited to keep visiting and hearing more. I'm really excited for all these awesome people we´re teaching and I know that if I forget myself and lose myself in the work, I'll be so much more happy and I'll receive so many blessings.

I know that the Book of Mormon guides us and keeps us on the strait and narrow path. I know that if we try to be more constant with God, He´ll be more constant with us. I love Him and His work. 

Love you guys

I love my family

This week Ive been using a picture I put in my scriptures of my family to show my investigators. I feel love for them and Im so thankful that Heavenly Father has put us in families. 

I'm going to be receiving a new area and a new comp on thursday! I realized that when I get put in a new area with new people, its an opportunity to reset and be the person I want to be. I want to be a very polite, friendly person that helps people feel comfortable and loved. I'm going to strive to show a lot of faith and to be really diligent in order to see miracles happen with the people I serve. This sunday we´ll see which investigators I have to see my teaching pool. I feel that the necessary ingredients to help the teaching pool grow and to help each person to progress are love, faith, diligence, hope, and some other things, but mainly love. 

Thanks for all your support. Ill probably be doing a longer one next week. There's a lot of experiences I want you all to hear. Keep in tune and next week Ill be sharing some cool stories. 

Love you guys!

What a Weird Change

We were all in the district meeting and at the very end, the zone leaders said ´All of Paitití needs to stay, we have to say something´ so after everyone left, they told us that there were going to be some changes. Some transfers. Then one by one they told us that we were going to be leaving to Santa Cruz (the city). until they wiped out the entire Paitití area. 

Now were living in the offices with the secretaries. Its such a drastic change and its weird. However, I'm willing to accept change and to continue to work for the Lord in the best way that I can. I will continue trying to be the best I can, and helping people. 

There's not a lot to say, I'm mostly just sad that I'm not going to be the the Brazilian dude, cuz I was going to learn Portuguese to be able to talk to Mckay and Katie, but its ok because I have a testimony that the transfers are inspired, even the emergency ones. 

I love you guys and hope you have an awesome week! write me some letters :P
