Week 40 - Viru

This week was a very great week. Being a missionary is a very rewarding experience. This week on friday I had a companion exchange with a few elders in the district. I was with Elder Ortiz for one day and it was a really fun day. He is a very powerful elder from Ecuador. We had a few set visits for the afternoon and just about every single one of them fell through. That was really frustrating, but I decided that we would start walking back to the area where our house is. In the path I decided to go visit an investigator that we hadent visited in a while. We arived at her house and she opened up the door a little bit, then finally let us in to visit her. As we visited with her she told us that she had been worried that we had forgotten about her, and that she had planned on going to church this sunday to get in contact with us. She is like 60 years old and her kids live far away. She told us that she just wants her family to all be together, so we talked with her a little bit about how the gospel blesses familiies and it was a great lesson. Every single week I am seeing really how much the lord is preparing people to accept His Gospel.
We are also visiting another family of investigators that came to church for the first time yesterday. They had a great experience and enjoyed the combined class during third hour about fasting. The enjoyed it so much that they decided to fast the rest of the day to see if fasting was even something that they could do. When we visited them last night and told they told us that I had to laugh a little bit. That is so awesome. The Spirit that you can feel in the church is real and really helps insipire us to act. 
Last night we also had a lesson with a few members in order to encourage them to share The Famliy Proclamation with a friend or relative. The members here are so awesome. I really enjoy visiting with them and listening to their thoughts and hearing how the gospel has blessed them in their lives. 
I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored. I know that when we are obedient we are blessed spiritually as well as temporally. I also know that the Lord is always preparing people to accept his plan.
