February 10th, 2014

Hola todo...

This week started off great but slowly died down. Monday we got 4 new dates, and then wednesday another one (all are family, but the first 4 live seperate from their mom, the other). Iva They all seemed great like they really wanted to hear and listen to us. They said they prayed and felt good, and were gonna start reading the book of mormon. But like friday and saturday, Ivan, the oldest kid, was hiding from us Im pretty sure...and none of them came to church.

We did have two other investigators come, one with date and one without. The one with a date, Ronny (the brother of our first baptism, Maria Jose) was kind of a miracle haha. At 745 we went to pick them up and Maria Jose was like no he cant come cause he was throwing up all night, and we were like not for one hour?? She said no half way to the chapel with the other investigator, Eric, we stopped and were like shoot please come Ronny, cause if he didnt wed postpone his baptism. We look down the street and boom. Ronny. He was like sprinting for us it was hilarious. It was awesome that he came even though he was sick.

We had a pretty cool experience yesterday, we were out with a member Ronny, and absolutely no one was home, and people at doors were all "busy". So Ronny was like why dont we go to the 28. The 28 is a super run down area that were told to avoid cause its dangerous. But we all felt good about it so we went. A little down the road we stopped at a house, and no one was home. As we started to walk away the owner of the house, Mario, walked up and no joke basically asked if we could teach him. He said he went to church a couple times with a friend a few years ago, and liked it, but never talked to missionaries. So he was definitely ready for us. He couldnt talk then but really wants us to come back this week. Oh man it was the perfect place and the perfect timing, And it wasnt even our inspiration it was the member who was with us.

I have a real quick little scripture from this week, in Alma 7, 24, says see that you have faith, hope, and charity, and then you will always abound in good works. Its a really simple scripture, and after Almas whole teachings of how to prepare to meet god, this is what sums it up. 3 simple things lead to all other righteousness. Cause if we have faith, then well be obedient. If we have hope well strive to improve. If we have charity we have the pure love of Christ. If you have all these things and always excercise them, all of your works will be good.

I hope yall have a good week. Love you.
