Oct 20, 2014

They say that lightning striking twice in the same place is very unlikely right... well this week Elder Anderson came and spoke to my stake!!! talk about suerte. our mission president called my district the apostle magnet because we heard from two apostles and have an ex-setenta in our ward. it has been so great to hear from apostles and their messages have been spot on for what our investigators needed! like you said dad the experience of hearing from an apostle can really inspire you yesterday we had a really nice day. frist we heard from the apostle and he told us about faith it was great. then i ate at our ex-setenta´s house, and we talked for about an hour and a half about deeper doctrine in the plan of salvation. it was a really interesting conversation. and then it rained on us all day but since we just heard an apostle and talked with our ward mission leader we got our fannies in action and started to work in the hills. we met one lady who was searching for christ now that her kids were getting to an age where they would start making there own decisiones and so we talked to her about the plan of salvation especially agency and the atonement. she was really excited and we get to talk to her this week!

other great news. We have another progressing investigator! now we have two with baptism dates! i have to say it has been a huge blessing to have members working with the two really good investigators that we have. and right now we are trying to get on track to have baptisms until christmas! wont be easy but i think we can do it!

 also fun service of the week we cut grass!!!! with a machete! I have never felt so legit while cutting grass. the only down side is that my comp almost let it slip and almost cut of my arm... but hey almost only counts in horseshoes and handgranades. it was a good service though the grass had been 4 or 5 months with out being cut , so we were dead tired after cutting for two hours.

Today i got the chance to go and visit san juanico. it was so great. i got to see some of the people that we helped come back to the church and they are all active and have callings! it made me so happy to see how much happiness they had to tell me that they were going to church and working hard in their callings. i know that God uses us a tools when we work and it feels good to see the fruits of our labors. but the real hope is that they get to the temple so we shall see!!!

i love you all so much and i hope that you ahve a great week be safe!
