This past week was another great one. At times it was a little tough finding people to teach, but by the end of the week we were pretty busy. We also got to spend a little bit of time with President and Sister Ríos.
Last Tuesday, we got to teach one of our converts, Hermana Fany. We talked to her a little bit about the first principles and ordinances of the gospel. As we finished the lesson we helped her to understand that the small and simple things are what are so important. As we strive to live the gospel I really think it`s so important to keep it simple. As we finished the lesson she expressed to us that as she learns more and gains more experiences she is realizing more and more that she is doing what is right.
This week I got to serve one day with one of my old companions, Elder Pacherres. We did an exchange and it was a great day. He is a very diligent missionary. One of my favorite lessons was with a new family that we found. We found them in the night and they told us that they didn't have a ton of time to talk, so we talked to them a little bit about how the gospel blesses families. That is something that always brings the spirit. At the end of the lesson they were very grateful and the dad gave us a hug. It was a pretty cool experience.
One of the highlights of this week was an actividad that we had with almost all the missionaries in the Zone. We had a church open house activity with President, Sister Ríos, and two wards here in Chimbote. We went out and invited people to the activity and Hermana Ríos went with us as well and we knocked on doors and the church was pretty full all night. It was a good time.
Yesterday,we had a little training during third hour, by President and Sister Ríos, for the open house that we are going to do in our ward in a couple of weeks. After church they came to our room and left a few of the banners there and our pensionista invited them to eat lunch with us. It was pretty awesome getting to eat lunch with them and with our pensionista and her husband.
We also had transfers yesterday.....I am staying in my area! My new companion is going to be Elder Henao. He is awesome! We played football in the MTC when we were there! Im excited for these next few weeks!
I know this is the work of the Lord. I know he knows and loves us. I know that it is so important to have faith centered and focused on the Savior because that is what will drive us to have a positive attitude each and every day.
