Week 70 of 101 (1/12-1/18)
This week was a quiet the experience. Elder Hiatt and I learned a lot this week. We had some really good experiences and some not as fun ones, but asi es la vida.
One thing that really stuck out to me this week were district and zone meeting. The meetings were really powerful. We had the Assistants from Belize with us and we did talked about inviting people to commitments. We had a few examples of ways to invite and ways to not invite. Afterwards, we practiced. It was great experience because we had the opportunity to act as our investigators and we got to put our selves in their shoes. It helped us out to understand our investigators a lot more.
Yesterday we went out teaching with Brother Moody (who is incredible). We took him all over to a bunch of different appointments, which all ended up falling through. A bit perturbed, we asked Brother Moody if there was someone he wanted to visit. He lead us to a very nice women that the Elders had taught previously. We were delighted to her that the daughter was reading the Book Of Mormon. We spoke to them for a bit and then Brother Moody, who is great, invited them to baptism. The she responded positively and said that she would really like her children to get live the gospel. It was a great experience.
Through out my mission, time and time again, I have learned that members are the best way for this work to move forward. Without a doubt in my mind, we are all missionaries. Everyone of us, missionary name tag or not, has a part in the work of salvation, and I hope that we never forget that.
P.S. photos are of a ruin by the Guatemala border. You can see Guatemala from the picture of me and Elder Hiatt. Also some pictures from last weeks adventure and a Bob Marley record.
