This week was better for me! We have investigators that are so cool BUT are so lazy and don’t want to come to church! I’ve tried so hard to explain to them WHY we go to church - the sacrament, remembering Jesus Christ, receiving knowledge and blessings. We don’t go to church because we HAVE to go. Now try teaching that to a kid that plays soccer games on Sunday! I think if I was in his shoes and someone told ME I couldn’t fly fish on Sunday I would think they were crazy too! But I still did the occasional fly fish on Sunday — because Jesus called fishermen to be Apostles!! Haha!! I use Alma 37:6-7 a lot to help explain that even the smallest testimony and faith can bring great things and can change the lives of many. I think about myself and how I can possibly change someones life even if I don’t say it quite right in Spanish.
I talked to an American Jehovas Witness the other day! I just wanted to know where she was from and not talk doctrine because I know she is NOT changing her mind and I am NOT either! It was cool but she kept trying to tell me that I’m wrong on certain things but I would just laugh and talk about something else. She kept saying YOUR God... but I would correct her and say OUR God. But it was fun to talk to an American girl.
Hey I bought a couple of sweaters and a nice camera today! It gets really really cold - just as cold as UTAH but it doesn’t snow. Ya it’s really cold here!
How are you? I can’t believe you guys and how much weight you have lost! I need pictures!
I love you so much! This is so hard but I can see it is so worth it!
