Weekly Summary from January 9th, 2017
Another week in the mission has flown by. It was a great week filled with lots of rain and a little bit of sunshine. Its hard to imagine that its so cold at home when its more like summer here.
Hermana Estela is still progressing and its so awesome to see how her desires to keep learning and do the right grow every week. This week we taught her a little bit about a few commandments and she seems pretty determined to keep them. She also got to go see a baptism this week that the other missionaries in our ward had. It was a great experience.
This week we also got to know one of our less active member´s dad. In my time here I had not had the chance to meet him until this past week. He works in another town, but comes here every now and then. He hasn't every really been too excited about his family listening to us, but this week when we were teaching them he arrived just as we were starting the lesson. He accepted the lesson really well. We talked a little bit about the plan of salvation and in the end we talked with him a little bit about the importance of his family. He told us that his family is part of who he is. We then talked to him about how he can have an eternal family. It was so awesome to get to talk to him finally, and in the end he told us that we are welcome to teach him and his family.
This week we also got to visit Hermana Roxana and another convert named Reinaldo. We got to talk to them a little bit about the importance of reading the scriptures as well. I am very grateful for the vision of the tree of life in the beginning of the Book Of Mormon. I know that the story of that vision has been preserved for a purpose. I know that the Lord has given us the Book Of Mormon for our times.
I am very grateful for the time that I have to be a missionary. I am grateful to be able to help families. I know that families can be eternal and that the principles of the Gospel and the commandments have been given to us to protect us and guide us.
