One more great week in the work has come to an end. This week we were super busy and it has been super great to see the progress of the people that we are working with.
Hermana Agripina and her daughters are still progressing a ton. They have set a goal to read the Book of Mormon together every night for 21 days. It is amazing the progress that we have seen in their family as they read The Book of Mormon and pray. This last Saturday we had a family home evening with them and they invited their family members. It was a great time and it was a pretty full house. We explained the Plan of Salvation to them a little bit, and we got to answer a lot of their questions. The Plan of Salvation really makes so much sense and I believe that we had a knowledge of this plan before this life on earth. In the end of the family home evening Hermana Agripina shared her testimony with her whole family. It was so powerful. Yesterday we visited them as well, and we got to answer a few of their questions about a few commandments and we got to talk a little bit about baptism. They have been developing their testimonies, and they told us that they want to be baptized. It was so awesome. We were smiling pretty big. A few trials have recently come into their path, but I know that the Lord will prepare the way for them. It has been such a blessing getting to help this family and see their progress.
Lately we have been learning more about the restoration and how we can teach it better as a mission. This week we met a man who had a ton of questions about all of the religions and about all of the things that he has heard about the many churches that there is. It was really interesting, however, because as we explained the restoration his questions stopped and he began to listen more. This week we had a leader training with President Rios and the assistants. President Rios told us ¨La Restauración esta cargada de poder¨ which means, more or less, that the message of The Restoration is packed with power. I really have seen that that is true.
The meeting we had with President Rios was awesome, and I also got to see my trainer Elder Sanchez. He is ending his mission in a few weeks so we took one last picture which ill send in this summary.
I know that this is the work of the Lord. I know that this life is a time to learn and to gain experience. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow as a missionary in this great work.
