Whats up yall!!!
(For the subject if yall didnt know my comp is from pleasanton california and thats where i was born) (same hospital as my hitta too)
Well this week has been good, it literally flew bye!!!! Went by real quick! I cant believe i have a decent chunk of time in the mission.... weird, its like high school when you get to junior year and you feel like youve been here forever but also have a good cunk to go.... so its a good deal.
I gotta tell you about those investigators we found like a month ago theyre awesome, sad thing is they wont be baptized this april because you have to come to church at least 3 times and they missed church this past sunday cause they kinda slept in/sick.... but it works out cause i know it was meant to be cause they need more time to progress and learn more.
We went by their house last night and they were just like i knew you guys would come and she was telling her daughter didnt i tell you they were going to come! hahaha so we did and we taught them the imoprtance of prayer, reading the scriptures and going to church. They all incorprate and without one the rest wont work. Its so true, we pray but how are we going to get an answer? Reading the scriptures is where you find revelation and going to church is the acting, so many different ways! It reminds me of what my dad always says when i have an off shooting game (that rarely happened by the way) But he always told me we gotta go back to the basics, Once we went back to the basics and started shooting 5 foot set shots eventually we were able to hit the 30 foot jump shots! The basics in this case are Praying, reading the scriptures and going to church, if you want to feel the holy ghost in your life and do the right things, start with these things! This gospel is the same, it has never changed, it is always the same things, they are so simple, these "simple things" will take you farther than you ever thought was possible! I have realized you cant just be succesful right away, it is not part of Heavenly father plan, its all about learning and growing and maybe and hopefully the succes will come later and if not, just keep trying!
Chile is cool, i swear the dogs here have gotten more mean and have been trying to kill me even more but besides that its all good its just getting cold! We are looking to find the good people who wanna hear the good word..... nothing cooler than seeing prepared to hear the gospel and there are a decent amount who are sadly not and i hope one day they accept it! But nothing we can do, only we can do the best we can! Lord will do the rest! I love you all!
