What a week

Tuesday Started it off with a good but strange District Meeting on charity. Then we taught Familia Alvarado, in the moment just getting them ready for their baptism that didnt happen... But then we taught Sergio who is the most prepared guy I have ever met. We taught him lesson one and just went super well. Wednesday Well this was a crazy day. We went and helped the Hermanas move from 1030 in the morning until 5 at night and then something happened to me and so we werent really able to work that day. But all is well. Thursday Much better day, Got the solution to my problem and then we just went out and worked. Went and visited Sergio and he was just waiting for us and prepared and excited to talk to us. It was awesome. Then we taught a less active family named Familia Rivera and well lets just say the lesson was more for me than it was for them. Then fought out that the wife of our convert is a drug lord. Thats great. No wonder he hasnt been coming to church. Friday Had divisions with the zone leaders and so Elder Halverson and I lost another day of working in our area this week. It went well but I learned a lot of what I dont want to do as a missionary and how I dont want to teach by going out and teaching with Elder Sanchez. Saturday Oh did we work hard this day. We visited Sergio who told us he had read the part in the Book of Mormon that we had left him and prayed and then just told us how much he knows that it is true and that he wants to be a part of it! How awesome is that. Then we tried visting the Familia Alvarado but the mom didnt want to accept us because now she doesnt want anything to do with us because she is now involved with the wife of our convert who is a drug dealer. Oh crazy are missions haha Sunday We didnt have tons of investigators but it was a good day. Especially since Sergio came and in Elders quorum when the Elders quorum president asked him how he felt and everything. Sergio just replied saying he loves it and even though this member brought him this week. Next week he is coming on his own! I love miracles like that. Monday What an awesome District Pday, we just met up in the church and everyone made there own food from their own countries. So we ended up having no bakes, yes I made Nathans grandmas recipe, grilled chees, pupusas, and chilekilas. All of it was so good. Then we went to the mercado as a district and Elder Halverson and I just had fun helping the Hermanas bargain for better prices. It was a good day. Spiritual thought Romans 5 vs 19 ¨for as by one mans disobedience. many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.¨ Timothy 4 vs 12 ¨let no man despise thy yought, but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, and in purity. What kind of example do you want to be? Do you want to bring people to be sinners or to be righteous? Its your choice....
