August 22, 2016

Well this past week i think have i felt the spirit in teaching alot more. not sure why its all of a sudden super strong but i really have.  Yesterday was church and we invited a kid named Andres to come cause we told him that if he wants to turn his life around then this is the way to do it and it will bless him.  We expressed to him that Jesus Christ has provided a way to be happy in this life and in the next. We testified that this is the way that he has set, and through this church he can learn more about the plan that God has for him, then we invited him to be baptized and he said he felt that he should and that he would if he came to know that it is true.  He really wants to start studing at the university so he can get a job and a family, that is what he says he wants, he took a test to see if he could get in and they havent called him back yet and its already been a month so he is worried.  We promised him that he would get the results if he came to church so he said he would come. He came! and really early. he came at 830 and the church starts a 9 haha plus south america is famous for starting things really late. So we ended up starting a 915 so he had a good 30 minutes in the church alone before.  but he had a great time. he stayed all 3 hours and learned alot about adam and eve and how opposition is nesecary in this life.  We are going to visit him on wednesday and im super pumped!!! cause he is going to put a baptismal date!.

 Our other investigador is named Joseph he is a great 14 year old kid. we have known him for a while now.  He really liked the restauracion (restoration) when we taught it to him He has only attended church 1 time but he really likes the book of mormon. and wants to be baptized but hasnt recieved an answer yet to know that it is true.  He has a baptismal date for the 10th of september so he can attend a little more.  We taught him the word of wisdom yesterday and he says its going to be tough cause he really likes coffee but im praying for him so he will be alright. 

well thats pretty much the bigger news that has happened during the week.  My personal study has been great lately.  Our president is always telling us to study the natural being of God like his attributes and i understood alot but this past week my eyes were opened.  I really realized the phrase I am a Child of God is really great.  It helped the people realize their potential.  Image if we weren't children of a heavenly father we would have no direcion to our lives, we would just be wandering creatures looking for the most pleasure possible with the least amount of pain.  But God gives us an end,  I am a Child Of A GOD, i can inherite a kingdom in heaven!  That is something that we have to teach first because if we dont the people do not understand why there are prphfets or why there is a plan of salvacion, why Joseph Smith had to restore the true church and if he had not done that we would all surely be damned cause we would all be lost and without direction in life.  Well i definitetly love God cause he truly has shown me the way.
Rob found Caleb's church building on Google Earth.  Caleb said:
