Well, I feel really great about what we could do this week. We've been really trying to follow the Spirit and be obedient with all the rules, and it's shown. We've been able to find new people and the people we're working with have started to progress. Well, two or three of those people. We're really excited about our two fechas and have, as always, high hopes for them.
When I was on divisions with my mission leader last Sunday, he
started asking me what it was like to be a missionary and how I felt
about it. He's preparing to go on his mission, but in this last while he
seems to have gotten excited about going. He asked me how I felt being a
missionary, and I started wondering about how normal it seemed to me
these days. It's what I do every day without rest. I do the same thing
every day in the same area, but it somehow stays interresting. I feel a
consistent happiness that doesn't often leave me. I guess I just got
used to having all that, so I didn't really think about it much. So I
sat there thinking about how blessed I really am. I guess I've let
consistencey rob me of the wonders that come from this work. So I'm
rededicating myself to looking for the little miracles that happen every
Oh, and I found out that two more of my investigators that were close to baptism in Huanchaco got baptized recently!
Cleidy and Hno. Pepe. So that was super exciting to hear about. I'm
super happy for them and really hope they can keep strong as well.
As for cool things that I've done these day, it would be when we
went to the lake here in Laredo. There a tiny little village that's
about a half hour away called Conache, but there's a little lake and
some sand dunes over there. It was actually super fun to go. They've got
a nice little picnick area to go to and a field to play soccer. We went
with a few families from the ward and it was tons of fun. We played
soccer for a while, then headed up to the dunes. It was about a 20
minute hike through the farm fields so it was nice and green. Then we
went sprinting up the dunes (as far as we could get, anyway) and running
or rolling back down. It really made for a good time.
But thanks for the updates! I hope all is well and that everyone is healthy!
I'll be praying for everyone!
