This week went great!! but yesterday was probably the highlight of it all!! So we were walking in this sector were there is not very many investigadors and there was a giant muddy puddle in the middle of the road cause we are getting a ton of rain lately and it was a dirt road. Anyway we had to go around it and take a different street. Then on the road i looked over and saw this guy that we didnt know saying Elderers!! Come here!! So we walked to were he was and he said he has talked to Elders before and was going to be babtised and says he has a ton of freinds in the church. But he said he has lost faith in God due to the problems he has in his life right now but anyway we talked about them and he told us that he wants to be babtised and asked how long it would take and we told him 3 weeks!!! It was super great it was super fun to see someone put that much faith in 2 19 year old kids. I know that everything we told him came from the spirit and that this work releys on the spirit and im super gratful that i was babtised in the correct church and that i have the gift of the holy ghost that tells me what to do and say in the perfect time!
hahah ya the best part was is that he totally put that puddle in our way just so we could run into it and go to the next street over just to talk to that man
did you guys not get my emails last week? ugh i wrote a ton i even wrote one to the group too but i guess nothing well im really sorry. i guess it was kinda funny cause my companion asked me how is the family and i was like they abandoned me and nobody wrote me haha but its ok now
oh also i read the talk by elder eyring it was super great thank you a ton for telling me about it!!
Rob asked him about some things in last weeks letter and this was the response that didn't come through:
ya i cant tell you that ive seen those companies over here but ya im in the heart of the providence los Rios. And yes there is a ton coco beans! They take off the shell and have all the little bean and lay them out on a tarp right on the sidewalk and they smell to high heck. Oh dang they smell awful. almost til you gag haha.
And yes there are 2 zone leaders Elder Monson and Elder Lang and all of Babahoyo is a zone. There are 2 district with 2 district leaders. There is me and Elder Rawson. and we are not companions. Im with Elder Argueta which i think really misses being a leader in the mission cause everytime i get all the numbers he feels like he has to write them down too its kinda wierd and somtimes tries to boss me around but its ok i understand he just wants the best and i know that i cant tell him what to do because he has 23 months now. I know i just have to serve him and i know then we can work as a team.
I was telling him that the story he wrote about (above) reminded me of Helaman 12:
oh i love that chapter it shows my the power of God and how incredible it is i love it so much!! I feel like when i read that chapter i feel like im very pridful of my father in heaven
I asked what he wrote about last week that didn't send:
Distict leader is not so bad i really like it and its super fun. You get to meet other investigators of other missionaries and its super interesting!!!
ok i have to go now because this lady wants us to come over to teach her at 4 today so we are going to take 2 hours away from our pday for that but how is Allyssa and Cammie doing i havent heard from them. tell them to shoot me an email next week i miss my sisters
bye love you all aton!!
