Well this week was quite interesting. We started the week really slowly with very few lessons but by the end we were teaching people every second! It was amazing. I learned a little lesson about faith and hope haha.
As missionaries there are standards that the mission president sets so that we are working hard. And honestly I didn´t have alot of faith that we were going to hit them. But we hit all of them and more! It was amazing! the only thing we faulted was in finding new people to teach :( But our area is doing great! We have 2 baptismal interviews this week and Nancy and Juan Carlos are getting baptized! Super Exciting!!!
And don´t worry, I am still working super hard and have a ton of faith ;)
We did have one powerful lesson that I want to tell you about though. Her name is Enriquetta and it was our third visit with her. We were with two members and we were teaching about prophets.
While we were teaching her she started to bare testimony that she knew what we were teaching was true and the spirit amplified like 300X. We related prophets to the Gospel; The gospel to Jesus Christ; And then Jesus Christ to Baptism. She accepted to be baptized on the! It was such a simple lesson but so powerful! The members were baring testimony, we were baring testimony and the room was like a furnace of heavenly power, (also known as the spirit ;).
People are progressing. The mission is the best and Jesus Christ lives. He is our savior and our brother. We lived with him before this life, and we will live with him again as we follow the Gospel. There is no other way. I know that this is The Church of Jesus Christ. He guides it and leads us. Repent and follow Him.
