We had a rough couple of days this past week. Nobody at home and so many people drinking in the streets that traffic was stopped in some places because of Carnaval. On Tuesday this man was riding his horse and leading two ponies behind him past us. He ended up dropping one of the pony´s leads. So I calmly walked over to the pony and led it back to him. Never know when your talents might come in handy on the mission :)
Saturday we had a super great and productive day! We taught lots of lessons with a member, _______ (16). ________´s desire to go to church and read the livro de Môrmon was reignited. We taught ________ this older man and he was very receptive to what we taught. Except he didn´t want to pray. Or read. Or go to church this sunday. He said "At least I don´t lie! I´m not going to do it so I won´t say I will." which reminded me of what I would say to my mom when she would ask me to do some chores. Sorry mom :'(((
I am so grateful to serve a mission. Yes, it´s a sacrifice. But school and all those other things can wait. This time to me is precious. It is a time when I get to feast upon the words of Christ everyday before I go to work serving my fellow man. It is a time when I need not fear because I know angels are looking out for me and my companion.
Every time I read the Book of Mormon the spirit testifies to me of its truthfulnness-which gets me really excited! Like, God speaks to His prophets, the things recorded here occurred, God has a plan for us! And I can read about it! :)vi
