Well time is going by super fast it seems like. It is kind of an enemy I'm starting to realize as we are trying to help a few investigators progress in the gospel. I would love to be here to see them progress more and make covenants with our Heavenly Father, but I have come to realize that its not really about me and the work of the Lord always moves on. I am excited, however, to keep helping them this week.
This past week we had a pretty fun little lesson with our convert's kids. They want to get baptized and we have been teaching them the lessons little by little. This past week we decided to talk to them a little bit about the Plan of Salvation, and my companion had the great idea to use a little whiteboard that we have. It was actually pretty awesome. They learned so fast and in the end they were explaining to us the Plan of Salvation.
We also got to teach two converts in the church. It was a good time. They are really progressing quite a bit as they read their Books of Mormon and go to church. It was awesome to hear that they feel like their faith is growing as they strive to be obedient and live the gospel.
I have learned so much here in the mission and I can´t name all that I have learned. I am very grateful for the mission. I would just like to share one of the most important things I have learned. It is so important for each and every one of us to have faith. Faith helps us to live with a positive attitude and god also blesses us according to our faith. We can gain faith by acting and by relying on the Lord. The Lord wants us to be able to develop faith in this life and I know that that is one of the most important things we can do in this life.
I am excited for this last week here in Peru. It´s going to be a great week! I know this is the work of the Lord. I know that he directs it. I know that the through the atonement of Christ and his gospel we can overcome our weaknesses and become better.
I saw my last companion that I had in Huaraz, Elder Torres, in a training this week.
