Happy the organ is working! Really glad to hear an update about grandma..
It’s been a good week. Seen a lot of miracles! My companion and I have really tried to work with the members more, and it’s super helpful! We`ve seen great progress. It was awesome that a lot of members were able to go with us teaching and they were really excited about the work. In the ward we have a lot of returned missionaries so we tried to focus in on them. We feel as though the ward has so much potential with so many return missionaries. We tried to be humble as well, asking for their tips and council after a lesson. We applied it later in our teaching and it really helped.
Neat experience. A few weeks ago, I had received a reference from one of my old companions that had served here in Huehue Centro. He said this nice lady had given them lunch often, however, she had never wanted to listen to their message. We had planned to look for her but she found us first! We were buying some things in a store when she came up to us and explained that she had given lunches to the missionaries before. She said she would be happy to have us over and feed us, so we went! After lunch we offered to share a scripture from the Book of Mormon. She liked it, and at the end she committed to read and pray about the Book of Mormon! When we returned, she had read and prayed! She felt as though she hadn`t received an answer but was interested to keep studying and praying. She accepted a baptismal date. The Lord prepares his children in their own time.
The Castillo family is doing well. Unfortunately I was only able to visit them once this week because my companion went to visit them while we were on divisions. He was excited and said he met even more of the family, the mom and another sibling. They`re struggling to attend church though because the majority of them work on Sunday. We know that if they keep reading and praying, that the Lord can bless them. He can help them find a way to keep His commandment to keep the Sabbath Day holy, and to go to church.
My companion was sick on Thursday. He stayed in bed all day, except for a meeting we had with the stake president and Pte. Smith. Poor guy. But he`s all better now and we`re working hard.
Being a missionary is great! I feel so blessed to be apart of this work and to see so many miracles! I know the hand of the Lord is in His work.
Hope everyone has a great week! Chao
