Dear Mom and everyone
This week was pretty interesting and we got to get to know the area a little while getting a little lost and looking for a lot of less actives.
Tuesday, we went out contacting looking for people to teach in a place called la Barra. It's a little neighborhood to the side of a river in our area. We walked around and knocked on about 20 or 30 house but nobody wanted anything. So we took a path that we thought would get us back to the highway but we just ended up getting lost and didn't want to turn back so eventually like most paths here the path took us to the beach. It's was completely empty for about a mile so we walked towards in the direction of our house. We came by someone after about 20 minutes of walking on the beach. There was a guy that freed baby turtle for the tourists to see. Having drank all our water we asked him for some and kindly gave it. while we were, there resting a little we started talking and he was really interested in what we had to say. We passed over the restoration while casually talking and accepted to read the book of Mormon. that was cool and we are going back this next week. After we had to climb two hill/mountains and pass for a part where we had to dodge waves to finally get to a beach we knew and could get back from.
Wednesday, we had a cool lesson with a less active, we talked about the plan of salvation and how knowing it blesses our lives and puts into perspective our life and our potential.
Thursday, we got lost again. We were looking for a less active but we read the map wrong so we ended up on someone property by accident and had to jump a small fence. We did end up finding them though and talked about pray and how important prayer the scriptures and church are and the committed to come to church.
Friday, we had divisions so I was with Elder Ventura, He likes sushi too so that night we went to the touristic walk along the beach and found a sushi restaurant we brought it home. It was ok but I was really missing Masa.
Saturday, we had a super cool lesson with our probable next baptisms their names are Felix and Maricrus. They’re super cool, she reads the book of Mormon and helps remind her husband. He's been to the church twice but she still needs to get there. Well we talked about the resurrection and the kingdoms of glory it was super cool.
Sunday was super cool because we weren't expecting too many people it's usually 20 to 40 people but then all of the LA we have been visiting came and so did Felix. It was super cool to see the chapel so full.
What we've been doing lately with people is reading Alma 32, It talks a lot about faith and how that the word is like a seed and we need to take care of it by reading and studying the scriptures. I challenge you guys to read that chapter and STUDY it. Think about how it applies in your lives and something more you can do to help yourself or someone else help their seed grow.
Well I got a few cool pictures of when we got lost on Tuesday and when we got sushi.
I love you all,
