I learned how to say hello in Mayan this week as well as good-bye, but I have no idea how to spell it, other wise my greeting would have been a lot more interesting.
Anyways, This week went by really fast. We had the opportunity to talk with an investigator that had disappeared a while back. She was suppose to get baptized in May. She lives a fair distance from where we normally work and so we only go when we can set appointments with her over her phone. WE finally got a hold of her and set an appointment with her. When we were actually able to teach her, we found out that she has a strong testimony of the gospel. She accepted baptism and so did her three children. It was really awesome!
We taught Bruce. He is such a great guy! He is really sincere and cares a lot about his family. He really wants to change his life. Humility is such a great attribute, but sometimes it is a little bit hard to find. He has it though. Hopefully he will continue to progress, as well as his daughter.
The zone had some baptisms on Saturday and on Sunday, it was a great opportunity to see more of our Heavenly Fathers children make a promises with their Father in Heaven. It opens up so many opportunities in life. I am so convinced that our ability to make and keep promises and covenants is directly related with our progress in this life and in the Eternity.
This week I realized how many people know that the message we share is true. The Spirit testifies to them. But, they aren't always willing to accept and act on what they learn. As missionaries, we invite people to change and call to repentance, but everyone has their own ability to choose how they act. I know that if we are willing to give our will and promise to do the will of our Father, we will be blessed more than what ever sacrifice that we may have to make.
Finally, marijuana IS bad for you, no matter what people think!
