San Juan Puerto Rico Mission
This past week has been better. My foot is good and I am back to walking all day which is SO MUCH better than sitting in the house all day!
We have been doing good with our investigators! We are teaching a young family. They have been wanting to follow a church but didn’t know which one was Christ’s church. This is perfect, because Joseph Smith had that same question!! They are really accepting and understanding everything, but haven’t been coming to church because of work. They accepted to be baptized but they need to be married and come to church.
We found another family this past week contacting. We had prayed to find a family in that area and we saw that blessing with this family. The Martinez family were cool and are interested. They see how everything makes sense with Jesus Christ establishing the church, to him ordaining 12 apostles with the Authority of God. And how the Authority left the earth which led to the Apostasy and how that is why we needed a restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ. This message is so simple but so powerful!
The people here are pretty hard though too. They really want to talk to us but don’t want to change the way they live. And a lot of people here believe in Aliens being our leaders. What? hahaha
I have still been struggling with homesickness and I am frustrated with the language. I don’t understand anything really and can't say much at all. I am so nervous I am gonna be struggling with this feeling my whole mission. When I feel like this this scripture helps me:
D&C 122 7,9
"All these things shall give thee experience and shall be for thy good....Therefore hold on!"
I love and miss you so so so so much!!!!!
