Well, this week was very similar to the last few. Things went a little
better. We have been visiting Jose Rojas more. We try to visit 3-4 times
a week, 2 times a week teaching a lesson or a commandment, and the
other 1-2 reading with him from the Book of Mormon. We have been able to
create a good relationship with him. We have also been trying to visit 2
other investigators, Juan Sebastian and Ana the same way.
family of some recent converts, and they really want to be baptized, and
do things right, but they have a lot of opposition. We are just being
Now that this transfer is over, its really cool to see
the transformation the area has had. We have found a lot of people who
are really intent on changing their lives, and coming closer to God. Its
special to know how much God trusts us. It is always a really special
experience to visit someone who needs more of God in their lives, and
helping them to understand correct principles and Christ´s doctrine. I
am finding the more I focus on them in my prayers and thoughts, the
better I can serve them.
This week the zone leaders talked to us
about trusting in God. They asked us how we normally feel when an
appointment falls through. One normally feels sad, because we cant help
the person we had planned on teaching, and it can be discouraging when a
lot of appointments fall.
I found that last week I had learned to
trust in God more, and rely on the Spirit. On Tuesday, we had run out of
plans around 7pm, at one end of our area. We prayed to God for
inspiration, and my companion and I had different ideas. We decided to
do them both. First, we got to have a good visit with a less active
family, inviting them to share the gospel. We felt the spirit. Then, we
went to a different part of our area, and when we got there, we weren't
sure what exactly we were supposed to do. We decided to look for a lady
we had contacted, and we talked to a few people, trying to find her
house. The last people we talked to was a young couple, who accepted our
visit, and are really great. It was amazing to see how God can guide us
to the people who need to hear the gospel right now.
Well, transfers are in. A sister in the district finished her mission.

Fusagasugá, a pueblo outside of Bogotá. he´s really excited. He had been
in this area for a while. I will be training, and I feel very
privileged. I hope I spelled that right. Its probably wrong.
Priveledged? Oh well. Tomorrow we have to be in the terminal at 6:30,
and we will get on a bus to Bogotá. The bus ride should be around 3
hours, I believe. I am very excited.
I know that God loves us,
and that He is always ready to guide us. He wants to be a great part of
our lives. WE show him our love when we keep his commandments.
Thanks for reading!
