We had a really cool zone meeting and we talked about Personal Revelation. Revelation can come in 3 different ways. Like a lightbulb: instantly come to us, or like the horizon of the sun: slowly comes to us, or its like a really foggy area. We have to walk with faith first through the fog, and then God will bless us because of our faith to move forward
Elder Zamora and I were contacting and we found this family. They are a young family and they loved talking to us. They wanted us to teach them right away. The lesson was too good to be true. The thing is they are either golden investigators or members of the church pulling our chains because their questions and answers were perfect. Either way, I'm happy we found them because if they are members we can help them come back and if they are investigators we can help them gain the blessings of Baptism and much more blessings like eternal families etc.
Kinda of a sad week too because one of our investigators attempted to take his life the other day. We went over there super fast and we shared 1 Cor. 10:13 I think it was and then we shared Ether 12:27. We pretty much shared that these scriptures are explaining that God gives us trials and there is no trial or temptation from Satan without an exit and that exit is humbling yourself and following our Savior and living his Gospel. Taking your life isn't the exit.
So I was feeling a little messed up the other day and I told the symptoms to the mission doc and she said it could be Zika or Dengue. Haha so that kinda blows. She said it can gradually get worse or stay mild. I sure hope it stays mild and I think it will. It has been 2 days with the same pain and it hasn't gotten worse and it takes like 5 -10 for it to go away. But I'm good- don't worry.
