Wow so this week was pretty normal. Our numbers at the end of the week were a little wacky, but that's only because we changed the way we plan. The only time we talk to people in the streets or knock on doors now (contacting), is when we are looking for people that our members have given us as references. So now we have a bunch more lessons. That's cool. But yeah I'm sure that's all boring stuff. On to better things....
We did find another family this week, a young couple. They have a little boy who's almost one year old. I hope they will eventually be baptized. They agreed to be baptized, but I didn't put a date because they have problems with the idea of a day of rest (Lord's day), so we need to resolve that first.
Crazy Culture Note:
There was a party for the Virgin Maria this weekend. I couldn't sleep. Sitting in our triste little house with the tin roof at 3 in the morning listening to dynamite sticks being launched into the air. Wow. Last night and the night before, couldn't sleep at all for this. Haha, but it's okay, it ended today, so I'll sleep tonight.
Well tomorrow, 9th of december, I reach 5 months! It's crazy how this past month especially has just FLOWN. I think it teaches me the high worth of having somebody who's really like one of your best friends by you every day. I wake up in the morning and then it seems like I blink my eyes and it's already the next day. This time in these past few weeks have felt like maybe one or two!
Still working on sending more pictures. Borrowed Elder L's camera to share some, but it took me ten minutes to figure out how to work it and I ran out of time.
Other things.... I dunno... It really was a pretty normal week. I'll just leave you with a spiritual thought and that's it.
So this week I've realized again the overarching importance of the Book of Mormon. It's really everything. It's a test, first off to find out if this church is true. You wanna know if these things that I'm talking about are true? You have to read the Book of Mormon. If you read it and then pray about it, you'll just know and feel that it's right. That's the only real way to explain it, but you'll know what I mean if you do it. You'll just know. And you won't doubt. And once you know that, you know that all of this is true because you will know that only people endowed with the power of God could have written and translated it, and then it all falls together. That's why it's so important. If you're a member, read it every day to strengthen your testimony of these things every day. If you're not a member, you should still read it in order to see if these things are true, because it's the way that the Lord has provided to find out! So this month, I challenge all of you to read at least one column a day, and watch how it changes your life.
