The work continues

Buenas Dias Familia!!!!!!


Wow, so this week was another week. Oficially, I am more than a year into my mission. Honestly, I completly forgot up till yesterday, and so no I did not do anything at all. But yeah,  I guess that happened. haha. No really things are great as always. Like always, I have no complaints. One thing that I have learned is when we do all that we can, the lord will make up the rest. This past week, I want to say on tuesday, all of our plans fell through. So we resorted to knocking doors. The problem is that ive already knocked the majority of the doors here, and many people have rejected us harshly. We spent literally 3 hours knocking doors, getting doors slamed on us, we knocked some doors by a taxi port, and some taxi drivers literally spat on us, and in these three hours, we did not find not even one person who even wanted to have a brief conversation with us. We literally just felt broke. We did all that we could posibly do. With low spirits, and in need for a break, I dont know why, but we both felt a need to go to a active members house. Normally we avoid members unless if we have dinner with them. This member doesnt really need much help, the mother of the house is a temple worker and is in the temple 3 days a week. It was very odd that we felt a need to go to her, but we did. When we visited her, she let us in and told us that she had a friend, a neighbor with her. We spend 10 -15 minuetes just talking with them getting to know them better, just more that anything resting. As we talked with this neighbor, we slowly started to change th etopic into a gospel related conversation, thats kinda what we do as missionarys haha. We found out that she doesnt go to any church, nor has she ever. We talked about the importance of God, and the help that he can be to us. We testified that if we put God first, if we do all that we can to follw him, that God will always be with us, looking after us, lifting us up when we have fallen. Me and my companion were in a low fallen state, and testifying to her that God lifts us up, lifted us up. She said right before we left that she needs God, and we are having a family home evening with her tonight. Really God is there, when we fall, he lifts us. When we do all that we can do, when we feel like it is impossible to do anything more, God will make up the difference and will help us do that little bit more. Its crazy how He works, but really I know that He works. God Lives and Loves us, He has Power to do anything and everything, especially for us being his children. THe Church is true. Love yall
