May 26th, 2014

Good day to all, its a beautiful day to live isn´t it. This week was fantastic like every other week. I was reading and pondering from DyC 58 the part where its says we should be anxiously engaged in a good cause. This scriptures way cool. Verse 26, says that if were compelled in all things, were lazy and dont gain anything. That is so true especially here, really if we as missionarys are expecting something to come to us, expecting to be told exactly how to find those to teach, we wont accomplish anything. We as agents in this life have to act for ourselves and be a creator of circumstances not a creature. We have helpers in this life, leaders of the church bishops home teachers but we need to be anxiously engaged in our own growth. Verse 29, He that doeth nothing until he is commanded, and recieveth commandments with a doubtful heart, and keepeth it with slothfulness, the same is damned. Ay lets not be lazy, lets be active in all things we do.

Ya so we have a few interesting investigators right now, no ones really progressing though. Theres one lady were teaching Anabel she has super bad problems with her marriage and so shes super receptive to our message about families. This last week she found out her husbands cheating, she already knew but she met the other women. Ya so shes been super down naturally and we told her ya if you come to church Sunday youll feel better. She says ya Ill definitely come, but only for the first hour- cause I have to go back to my house and make my husband breakfast. Ha that blew my mind but hey at least shes forgiving. No one else were teaching came to church besides this lady Diana, the investigator who still cant get married cause no one does anything in the civil records office.

So ya nothing really much more is going on out here, FIFAs coming up fast and this countries about to shut down for a month. But I have bets with like 5 different youths against Ecuador. Theres gonna be a lot of new ties around my neck real soon. But anyway I hope you all have a good week, whereever you art, be well thy part ok.
