This week was a good time. We witnessed a ton of miracles and we worked super hard as a companionship and a zone. It was pretty hot most days and it makes things interesting.
We were trying super hard this week to get together with an old investigator and help this guy get on the right path again. He finally moved out of his dads house and broke up with his girlfriend, so we were thinking it was probably the time, and not to mention we ran into him every day for like three days straight. So we find out where he is staying and long story short, he lives with his friend who in reality is living with his grandpa. Alberto is the grandpa and we meet this guy and start teaching him. Right off the bat we figure out he`s gone through some nasty stuff with his family and needs a lot of help. He accepted a baptismal date for later this month and we taught him a few other times during the week. We had a really cool lesson with him and Hermana Pacheco who came with us and they shared similar experiences which was cool. Then yesterday after calling a bunch of members to help us get this guy to church in the morning, the only one who answered was the quorum president. Turns out this hermano is a friend of Alberto from like 20 years of working in the same factory, and he knew a bunch of other people in the ward as well.
I`m pretty sure we are the best zone in the mission haha no but we are doing really well and
I´m really proud of the obedience and diligence everyone has committed to. Elder Romney is now in the zone in my old area so headed to hang out with that guy today, I´m stoked.
This work is the Lord`s. There is no other way we would be able to do what we are doing here.
¨Now this work in which we are engaged is true. And the doctrines which we proclaim are God’s eternal truth. And as the Lord lives, they will endure in time and in eternity. He has placed us here in a mortal circumstance and commanded us to seek him and to strive to be like him. He has given us an abundant amount of revealed truth in the holy scriptures. They are before us; they are available to each of us on the same basis.¨ Bruce R. McConkie Mystery of Godliness
