December 22nd, 2014

Ima be quick again since well be talking this week, but it was a fun week. We had a christmas performance activity from all the missionaries from this stake (Milagro- theres 38 missionaries just in this stake) for all the members and investigators, our zone did a play about an Elder Scrooge, it was really funny im gonna try to get a copy of the video and give it to you. And we also sang a bunch of christmas hymns with scriptures, it was a really good night and i got to see a few of the converts from Bellavista, like the main man Mayra who we helped to get married and baptized right before l left that area, whos now pregnant so that was some interesting news. Ya but christmas is seriously the best, even though i dont feel anything like christmas over there, Im super happy and excited, I cant really comprehend how great is that love of god that entered into this world, that true gift that is Christ...he is the king of all kings, èven though he was a poor, born in the stable. He is our salvation. Im honored to be able share that right now. It was nice to share that with the stake that spirit.

A cute little story we had this week, we were trying to help an old man who was super afflicted, he needed food, and a priesthood blessing. And as were trying to help this poor man, a gnarly bible thumper lady came up just to start yelling at us, completely ruined everything we were trying to help the man understand. She was convinced that that man was already saved cause he went to their temple. I was even delighted to hear that she and her church were praying specifically for us to find the path of christ, how sweet is that, cause were tricked by the lies of men she says. It was so difficult to bite my tongue mostly because we were just trying to peacefully help a man nothing more. I really realized the importance of staying christlike as a representative of him, cause in the end despite what they know this is the trute gospel. true gospel in the end brings eternal life, that eternal life is knowing the father. Since Christ was also accused of teaching doctrines not true, he gave the way to know in john7.

 16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine,whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

Its simply to do gods will, and try to apply it, which is hard to do when youre yelling, but we as members need then to match the message and share it with love. Anybody willing to know will know, thats a promise. It was a neat little experience, I learned from it. But ya thats basically all thats happening. Im super pumped to talk thursday!. Till then.
