Another week has come and gone here in the mission. I am still learning a ton and we have a few people that are progressing in our area. The Lord´s work is moving forward.
We have gotten to help one of our convert´s wife learn a little bit more and progress. She is so awesome and has come to church quite a few times now. We got to talk to her a little bit about the Plan of Salvation this past week. We are also trying to help her understand the importance of baptism as well. Her husband really wants for his wife to get baptized as well. It is always nice to know that the Lord is preparing the way so that his children can make covenants with him. I know that little by little she will have that desire and will get baptized.
This past week we also got to visit a few members that we haven´t gotten to visit much yet. One family that we got to visit has a son in the mission and it was really nice getting to visit with them. We got to read the scriptures with them and they expressed to us how grateful they are for the many blessings the Lord has given to them. They explained to us a little bit all that happened so that their son could go on the mission. I have realized here on the mission that the Lord really prepares a way so that young men can serve him as missionaries.
Last night, we had an awesome experience with a new family that we have started teaching this month. They had read a little bit about the restoration before our visit and we were able to help them understand the importance of the restoration. It is always so awesome when people are able to understand the importance of the restoration. The were excited to know that they could look for their own answer to know if our message is true. I am grateful for the restoration and I know that if one searches diligently to know if it really happened they can receive an answer.
I am grateful for the mission and for the opportunity to strengthen my faith every day. I know that having faith is a choice we can make each and every day. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ has been restored.
