A spiritual lesson

Week #76
Hey Everyone!!

Well this was another good week! 

Monday we played soccer again which is like the 6th Monday in a row or something like that!? Theres not much else to do here in zone so we have just been playing soccer recently! Not bad exercise though!! Then we just hung out with one of the return missionaries in our ward named Moroni! It was pretty cool i guess for P-day!

One Tuesday we had our district meetings as usual and all went well! After the district meeting we did whats called a work visit.. The district leader came with me for a day and my companion went with the district leaders companion for a day! It was kind of cool and went really well! Every time you do a work visit you learn new stuff and i feel like i learned quite a bit of things or techniques to use in my teaching! We had a couple of good lessons on Tuesday and it ended up being a really good day! In the afternoon we went out with a member whose name is Carlos and we visited a couple of people and contacted some other people! He took us to one of his neighbors house and we were able to meet them and have a cool lesson with them! A little later on we had one of the cooler and more spiritual lessons i have had in my mission with the Estrada Family! It was a really cool lesson and we talked about enduring to the end and it was a lesson of reflection and focusing on how we can all do better and it was really cool!

On Wednesday morning we got ready and went to the district leaders room to change back to our normal companions and then we went back to Kennedy and went to eat at a members house and we ate some like beef jerky kind of meet and beans and rice and it was actually really good food and the meat was really good! After lunch we went and visited Luz and her boyfriend Yoe and we are working with them quite a bit now! Yoe is a less active member and Luz was listening to the missionaries a long time ago but she didn't progress so the missionaries stopped going but when we looked them up again after a while they were really receptive and now we are teaching them again! They want to get married and Luz wants to get baptized so we just need to work on scheduling a marriage and that would be really cool! Later that night we had another really good lesson with another cool family! The Soza Monja family! When we walked in we started talking for a while and then we said a prayer and at the start of the lesson we didn't really know what we were going to share but as i was flipping through my scriptures i felt like we should share Alma 34 with them especially for the husband, Dario, whose not member! It ended up being perfect for him and it was a really cool lesson!

Thursday and Friday were pretty normal and we visited Blanca and a couple other new people which was cool! We are trying to look for new investigators right now because the pool of investigators that we have right now aren't really progressing very much.. We actually have a few of them that come to church but they cant really progress because of whatever reason like they are under age or they aren't married or things like that! 

Sunday was kind of cool! We had 5 investigators come to church which was pretty good! The testimony meeting went well! After church we went out and tried to visit a lot of people without much success because everybody is always busy on Sunday.. Oh well all in all it was a good week! Changes are next week and i might get changed which would be kind of sad but a fun new opportunity.. Who knows well see what happens! I know that God loves all of his children so much that he gave his only begotten son as a gift for us and Jesus Christ loves us so much that he gave his life for us!
