Alrighty so we found some cool people this week! Funny story... We were cruising down the street and saw a lady sweeping her leaves (because they dont use rakes here. haha) So we stopped to try and help. I put down my bike and swept a little before my companion wanted to sweep. I started talking to the lady and she invited me to sit down. So we sat down to chat while Elder May worked away. I showed her a picture of my family and then she says, "Poor guy, he's getting all sweating by sweeping my neighbors lawn." hahaha then right when Elder May's about finished the neighbor comes out and looks at him like a freak and asked, "What are you doing?" Elder May had no idea what she said or what he did wrong. sooooo funnny. Our new friend then went over and told her neighbor he just wanted to help and she was like "Do I have to give you something?" and of course we said no. We gave her a little card of Jesus Christ and kept talking to Amalia. Turns out Amalia's husband died a year ago and she feels lonely at times. We testified of the Plan of Salvation and set a date to return. Those are the type of experiences that make me love the mission. :)
Yanina Taulet and her husband Milton are doing great. They invited us to eat last Wed. We talked about baptism and they said they still need a stronger answer from God. We invited them to read and pray with REAL INTENT. We went back a few days later and Yanina had read a ton while Milton hadnt read much. We want to show them the importance of these things. We want to talk about eternal families and set some goals. Yanina went to church on Sunday so that was cool, but her husband stayed at home.
Marta was in the hospital until Friday so we visited her there a few times and then saw her in her house. She had brought her Book of Mormon and pamphlets to the hospital with her. So cute. I'll take pics this week. :)
I don't really have much of a spiritual thought this week but at this point in my mission I've realized something that I hope all of us can do. In this life, we are here to become like Christ, little by little. He wants us to practice. As we become more and more like Him, others will follow.
I love a song called "The Window to His Love"
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of the heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have his hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure. Amen.
