So things have been good and we’re wroking hard here in Carabuela. I’ve also been getting to know the hermanas in the 2 zones that Hermana Pelaez and I are in charge of. They’re awesome.
So this week we realized that the opposition in our sector consists of dogs and kids. The dogs here are vicious. A dog bit my companion in the leg and I almost got attacked too. It’s lovely haha. We have an investigator and her dogs are locos, so when we went to visit her we first armed ourselves with large stones and corn stalks (the whole town of Carabuela is just a bunch of houses spread apart in the midst of corn fields) in order to fight the dogs. And yeah it turns out that she wasn´t even home. Oh and the kids. Every time we try to share a lesson a kid starts screaming and it´s impossible to share anything with their parents. But we’ll bring stickers and candy to the lessons from now on.
So we watched General Conference, and it was soooo good. Like I was on cloud nine and I just felt so much joy in my heart and love for the prophets and apostles and love for this church and this gospel. It’s so true. It’s not easy to be a Latter Day Saint, but I’m telling you, it’s so worth it. I loved how they talked about not being a part-time disciple, and the importance of spiritual integrity. And they basically said that to develop this spiritual integrity, we can’t forget the fundamentals. Like scripture study. And meaningful prayer. And loving service. We are all responsible for our personal religious observance. And not just on Sundays, but every day.
Well I was reading in Omni and it reminded me to write in my journal more often haha.
But also I was reading the first chapters of Mosiah and they are so powerful. The power of obedience and repentance goes hand in hand.
Well I will try to send photos but usually it doesn’t let me here. Sorry.
Love you all, thanks for the letters!!
