Every single week in the work is different and unique that´s for sure. It was a great week, but it was kind of tough not getting to visit Hermano Efren and Hermana Fany. Nevertheless, we were able to stay pretty busy all week.
Hermano Efren was in Trujillo this past week and had a little operation done, so we haven ´t been able to visit him much. Hopefully he will get better soon.
Hermana Fany is still working a ton and we haven´t gotten to visit her very much either. I guess we are learning to be more patient.
Last Monday, we had an awesome family home evening in a member ´s house. We watched a little video from ¨principles about peace¨ about repentance. It was a very powerful video. Repentance is such an important principle, and when one learns it and puts it into practice he or she gets to feel the power of the atonement in their life. It is such an important part of the plan of salvation. We can change. I am grateful for this principle in my life.
This past week we also gained another companion. His name is Elder Apaza. He is from Puno, Perú. He is a great missionary.
As we didn't get to visit our two investigators that are really progressing in this past week we focused a little bit more on finding new investigators. We didn´t have a ton of success all week, but when we woke up on Sunday we knew we were going to have a great day. We were very blessed to get to know a couple of new people. One interesting thing I heard this week came from two different parents from two different families. They knew that we had talked to their sons and later they told us that they really wanted for us to help their sons and keep visiting them. I know that the principles and ordinances of the gospel really do help people to live better lives and even more than that, I know that they lead us back to our Heavenly Father.
Today has been a great Pday. We went and ate some pizza and milkshakes with the other missionaries in our district today. It was a great time. I almost forgot what pizza tastes like. It was pretty delicious.
I am grateful for this opportunity to be a missionary and for all of the things I am learning. I know this is the Lords work and that the gospel really can help each and every person that accepts it and lives it.
