Out of the comfort zone
Hermana Salas is pushing us to become better missionaries here and now! And it hurts a little. My heart is so stubborn and wants to stay where it is comfortable, but waiting to change for the better is often just another way of never changing. So we are sucking it up and making changes. This is the last week of the transfer and we have to be prepared for anything and everything. We are working hard.
Gerardo is doing great. He accompanied us in a lesson last night and bore a beautiful testimony of his very favorite thing- prayer. It touched the heart of an investigator that we had not been able to reach for a good while. Everyone was edified.
We are teaching a young couple, Jonathan and Angie, and Angie reminds me of Heidi. All the young people dress just like you, Heidi. And Angie is actually the same age as you. They are both very kind and I love having lessons with them. They both work in the ferria all weekend so it has been a challenge to get them to Church. We had a lesson in the church though, and it went well. People can feel the Spirit in the church. Stepping out of the world and into a holy place. They are reading and praying together.
We are also teaching a family that is progressing well, but they were all super sick yesterday and couldn't make it to church. Bummer. Juana. Her heart is big and her faith bright.
We have a lot of wonderful people to teach and love right now. People are good. People love their families. They want the best for their children and they try to give them the best they can. People want to believe in God and in truth, but sometimes they don't know how. That is where the Spirit brings its power. I am so grateful for the gifts of the Spirit.
Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and He knows just how to comfort His people. He is the light.
