La vigésimo cuarta semana!


I am not going to lie, this week was pretty hard! We have been working really hard to teach with members, to teach well together, ask inspired questions, use the scriptures and testify. It has been working really well in terms of the quality of our lessons. We feel the spirit very strongly and we can see them feeling the spirit testifying of what we have said. It feels great at that point. Then we extend invitations for them to put in practice what we have taught and come to church and they give us a lukewarm answers like, "primero Dios" or something else that doesn't really mean anything. Or they say yes, but don´t do anything about it. More specifically, we invite them to church and they don´t come or when we go to bring them to church, they hide from us. This Sunday we finally got people to come to church, 3 kids, and they said they were going to go to the bathroom and then took off running for home. After that experience, my companion and I were pretty bummed out. But then we talked with our bishop and he said something I really liked. 'Sometimes when we are working the hardest we have the least results. But eventually we will see the blessings in our lives. We just have to keep going and working until the Lord sees fit that we receive blessings.' Understanding that, I am excited to keep working!
