This week has been WONDERFUL! We have had a great week this week! I have a lot I would like to share with you guys, but very little time to do it! First of I would like to share a quote that is really popular but I feel like I need to share it.
There are two kinds of people in this world, those who act, and those who get acted upon.
This week we visited a lot of people, and as a missionary its wonderfu to be able to see the fruit of your labor, and this week we saw it, many of the people we visited came to church, the church was full, and it was amazing to see! I was really really happy. But on top of that we have some even better news.
D is an investigator of ours, she is also an active and faithful Jehovas Witness we had been teaching her a lot, and we weren't seeing a lot of progress, and the doctrine of her church and ours are very distinct on very important subjects. We always tried to teach her without letting it turn into bible bashing. We finally decided that what she needed was something out of our power to give her, on the 18th of October we fasted for her. With a lot of faith that she would get an answer. After fasting it seemed like nothing had changed, we continued to visit her, but we did it less frequently, and we felt a little bummed she had not recieved an answer, or that God had not answered our fast.
Well as always The Lord never faileth. Deuternomy 31:6. But I had forgotten that his ways are not our ways, nor his times our times. Isaiah 55:8.
This last week D went to the Buenos Aires temple with a member, she obvisouly could not go in, but she could be in the gardens, well while she was their she met up with a member who had lost her temple recommend and couldn't go in, after talking to the member, and being on the temple ground she felt the spirit and has decided to be baptized. MIRACLES!! The Lord ALWAYS answers the prayers of his servants!
I invite you all to visit a website that the church is putting in. I believe it began this week. Look up christmas.mormon.org. Its a huge giant move the church is doing, including buying advertisement in New York, and also on Youtube. Its a big thing, our mission president has talked to us about it. We will be putting it in practice this next little while. Dont ever forget that
"HE (Christ) IS THE GIFT. SHARE THE GIFT!!"
I love you all so much! You are all amazing people! Dont ever forget who you are, and that God loves you!
