Elder Villarroel thinks you´re the best! We were talking because he heads home at the end of this cambio. We noticed that time flies really fast.
This week was awesome, we worked extremely well with the members and visited with a different member almost every day. We also had the blessing of being able to find a couple of new people to teach, Pamela and Gonzalo made it to church, along with the kids. They involved themselves almost instantly. The best part about all of that is we left them with a copy of "The Family: A Proclamation to the World" and they LOVED IT! We will focus on encouraging them to get married.
This week I really have felt the spirit, especially during our English classes. We taught the principles of prayer in English. Our Bishop’s wife is SO DEDICATED! She has from the beginning of class greet us with (the little English she knows and her pronunciation is perfect! Hopefully the class keeps growing and we can use it to find new people to teach!
We had the blessing to be able to view part of the Copa America, in the home of Pamela y Gonzalo. IT was a really good game, Chile won 5-0 over Bolivia. They advanced to the quarter finals and play this week! VIVA CHILE!!!!
The new elder in the house, Elder Martinez, is a MMA fighter and motorcycle lover from Distrito Federal en Mexico. We all 4 get along very well. I haven’t laughed as much as I have this week on the entire mission. Hopefully we can keep it up. Today we watched the sunrise after we picked up laundry and I thought how right Elder Bednar was when he said “the light of Christ is more like the sunrise, the gradual illumination which scatters all the darkness.”
I also saw a cool parallel with the path to heaven, Paul said the streets were paved of gold right. Have you ever seen the sunlight shining upon the water at daybreak. It’s like a straight, narrow path of gold leading to the warmth and glory of the sun. Just some cool things passing through my head.
Well, hopefully this week we have an even better week. Glad to hear all is well on the home front.
I love ya bunches.
