|A couple pics back when I went to Fundidora :D|
This week has been amazing because we had an investigator in church for the first time in over 4 months!!! His name is Francisco Fernandez and we found him about a week and a half ago in a colony called Valle del Contry (country valley). We met him on a park bench where he was sitting with an athiest and a catholic who are friends of his, but the other two quickly left saying they had things to do, so we focused on Francisco. He is a very intellectual man and doesn't profess any religion in specific, but is open to learn. We have been helping him learn about the restored gospel and invited him to church and he came!! The best part though was it was fast and testimony meeting and some of the testimonies really touched his heart. Afterwards, we asked him how he felt and he explained how much he loved one of the testimonies and started tearing up a little. The spirit was super strong and I know he was touched by it. The only bummer is soon he is leaving on a business trip for 2 months...but we are trying to get him progressed as much as possible before that happens!
Other than that we have found quite a few new investigators, but we go through them so fast it´s better to just mention them if they start progressing. I am loving being here with Elder Gayosso. He is a wonderful missionary, companion, and leader, and has taught me a lot:) We have a Zone Training tomorrow and our Zone Conference next Tuesday so we are pretty occupied. It´ll be nice once it´s over though because we don´t have anything else until next transfer:)
Just a couple of scriptures that stood out to me this week in Moroni 7:33
"And Christ hath said: If ye will have faith in me ye shall have power to do whatsoever thing is expedient in me."
I know with all my heart that we can do anything with the sufficient faith and approval of our savior. Although at times it can be hard and we think we´ll never have enough faith, if we will just
"awake and arouse (our) faculties, even to an experiment upon (his) words, and exercise a particle of faith, yea, even if (we) can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in (us), even until (we) believe..." (Alma 32:27).
I share this in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.
Love you all and thanks for all your love and support!!!
