This past week has been super fun! Today as a zone we went and played softball and basketball. I destroyed in both and they called me Michael Jordan which isn’t a surprise… haha (sike)
There is this a guy that we see everyday that is ALWAYS high on drugs. His name is Ricardo and he is 23. I have been hesitant to teach him because of how drugged up he has been. But then I thought about how I should see people as children of our Heavenly Father. We decided to teach him. We have been working with him everyday since and he has not used drugs for 6 days now. That is so cool. I felt like I learned a lesson that this Gospel is for every person and I need to talk to EVERY PERSON I see, no matter what their situation is. He came to church but the bad thing was is that he didn’t like it and wanted to leave - haha!! We will keep working with him!
Fasting is so important and we receive blessings as we obey it. Before the mission I never fasted - I LOVE food. I wish I had learned the importance of fasting before the mission. This past Sunday I really focused my fasting to have investigators and less actives in church. My whole mission so far I have only had 1 show up. This past fast Sunday we had 4 less actives and 1 investigator in church. It was the best day ever. Prayer, faith, and fasting brings blessings.
The mission is flying by! I feel like I just got to Guayanilla and now transfers are next Sunday! We have been working super hard and having success little by little.
I have been the designated driver for the past 3 weeks. There is this jump in Penuelas and I got some air! I got a cool video but it wont let me send it. (Mom’s response: CODY - you're killin' me!!)
I love you a bunch and I am doing so good here!!
