We had another Conferencia con un 70 este semana Elder Di Giovani (conference with an area 70 this week). Such a pump up. The work here is about to start soaring. We need to be more obedient, more humble, than ever before. Si dios está con nosotros, quien contra nosotros (if god is with us, then who can be against us)?! I love that quote. God is all we need; he is our strength, with Him ALL things are possible. We all have challenges in life; some are bigger than others, but we all need to be strong and trust in the Lord. He is the only one who can carry us through a storm. The most important thing I have learned while being here is the need to devlop complete faith. Fe (faith) in what's to come, fe in the lessons of the past, fe that we are in the hands of god, fe that miracles can and do happen. DyC 42:14 oracion con fe (prayer of faith)
We had a cita con Katy ayer (an appointment with Kay yesterday). Ella accepted an invitation baptismal pero no una fecha (baptismal invitation but no date). She said she believes José Smith fue un profeta(was a prophet)!!! wow. first lesson, she is golden... seriously so awesome. Tambien (also) we met with Jennifer y Manuel and the lesson went really well. We really went into depth about the importance of the book of mormon because, well, it is the key to our religion! All of the answers we need are in our hand! I have truly developed such a love for the book of mormon.
We are working really hard with Menos actives (less actives) right now. Monica y Hellen have a fecha for the 25 of mayo. We met with 'G' y Soni, she smokes 20 cigarettes each day...says she wants to stop but she has been smoking for 40 years so its a little difficult. poco a poco con ella (little by little with her). Pero she doesn't feel prepared to listen. She thinks she needs to stop smoking before learning, but it is just the opposite, when you learn about the gospel you will have more of a desire and the strength to stop. agh, a little frustrating. We just need to be dilligent and persistent.
Thank you for all of your examples, I am doing just dandy here :)
Trust in the lord with all of your heart and he will give you what you need. He has not forgotten you, he my be waiting for you to come to him.
