This last Tuesday we finally got to visit a reference that we got from another companionship here in Huaraz. Her name is Hermana Elizabeth. She has a little family and has learned quite a bit from the missionaries in the past. We got to meet with her in the church with the help of a few of the members here, and we got to teach her about the restoration. She has a very sincere desire to understand the gospel. As we finished the lesson one of the members explained how she had gained her testimony and how she felt, and when she finished the Hermana Elizabeth told us, ¨that's how I feel.¨ It was so awesome. I was pretty happy when we left the lesson.
We are also teaching a young man named Franklin. He is still progressing little by little. We got to teach him a little bit about the Plan of Salvation this week. He was really interested. President Rios actually told us this week that we need to work with more young people, and we are starting to see why. They are very willing to learn and have a strong desire to find answers that the gospel gives us.
This week we got to go to Trujillo again to a training with President and Sister Rios. It was awesome. President Rios showed us Elder McConkie´s last talk about the atonement. He helped us to understand how Christ has atoned for all of us, but we can only receive his help and the blessings of the gospel if we are obedient and live the principles of the gospel.
I am very grateful for our Mission President and for all that he teaches us. I am grateful for modern day revelation that helps us to progress. This week we have a worldwide training for all of the missionaries in the world. Its going to be interesting! Im excited.
I know that obedience brings us blessings, and I am grateful for our Savior and for his perfect example.
