This week was full of ups, and full of downs.. A mission is amazing. I don’t think there is any better way of finding out every single one of our weaknesses than this. This week, [some members] got back together and are well all over again!!! WOO HOO!! But, 2 more families left us and said they don’t want to accept us in their house again because of rumors they heard or from pastors of their church. It’s sad and crushing, but we keep our heads up knowing the Lord has other people prepared and waiting.
Yesterday we didn’t have a single investigator in the church and it was heart-breaking as well.
This week was more than difficult.. all but 4 compromissos that we had this week fell through.. usually we have 6 a day, and we ended the week with 4. It’s sad. We love these people as soon as we see them and automatically are willing to kill ourselves in work for them, to do everything in our power to make sure we help them in some way.
This week really made me think of Christ and how people treated him. He did everything perfect, he slaved to save people, and in the end he suffered the greatest pain because of the love he had for us. In the end, last night, we were tired and exhausted and ready for a new week, and continued through the street. We were impressioned to walk a different road that was the longer path towards our house.. so we went. On this road, we decided to knock on a door (clap our hands) and talk with someone in a strange looking house.
Last night, after we were almost ready to give up and cry.. we believe we found our miracle. This woman is more than prepared, and basically said she wanted to jump into the baptismal font. It’s true.. when we do our part diligently, the Lord does His and the blessings come. Keep that in mind. When we feel like we can’t go one more step, take 2 and the Lord will catch you and carry you home.
This week we have multi-zone conference tuesday and then we’re going to the temple afterwards!! WOOOOHOOOOOO! Next Monday I’ll probably email later because we have a meeting with Presidente Del Guerso. He’s going to talk for the last time for the entire mission, then afterwards [a sister] is making lunch for us! Love you all and hope you have a great week!
