Felize año nuevo! Thank you so much for the letters this week.
Dad thanks for email. It is exactly what I needed to hear. I figured you´d at least be able to relate. I´m gonna try and ¨act¨my part.
Aunt Janie thanks for sharing. I love hearing from you. Thanks Bro Bingham, sounds like I´ve got to be better at contacting too, I´m nothing like your father in law :) Brandi...name, please, that is all. name. Jack, thanks for sharing about the women and prayers. That really helps. Oh and happy early 1 year aniversery as a memeber
As for this week, I really don´t have much to report. It´s been interesting trying to adjust to not only a new companion but one that I have trouble communicating with. She´s really great and very happy. I mean, I´m a happy person, right? Smiles and all that. Well I look sad and boring next to her. She really loves the people here and is ecstatic to be back in Tigre. I hope that we can learn for each other and grow into the people that the Lord needs us to be. Like every companionship there are a few wrinkles that need ironing, but only a few.
We did find a new investigator this week Paulo. He´s really great. We found him on Saturday night and taught him the first lesson. He is very open and receptive to the gospel. He is really sincere. Everything he says comes straight from the heart. There is just something about him. He didn´t come to church yesterday, but I´m not sure if he has even read in the Book of Mormon yet, so I can´t really blame the guy. There is a scripture that I love it´s in Alma. I can´t remember the reference now, man....nope....it´s verse 5 maybe, but can´t remember the chapter. I have it written down in the apartment.Oh well. It talks about how they were going to preach to the Lamanites and they wanted to preach the word of God unto them because it has more power on the hearts of the people than anything else. Think about that. There is a power in the scriptures, they are the word of God. A power to change people and their lives. That´s all I´m trying to here, help people change their lives for the better by coming to Christ.
Well that´s all I got for this week. Love you all.
Happy new Year!
