¨Ay vienen los mamones!!!¨
Here come the mammons!!!
This week has been so incredibly awesome! I have a new companion, Sister L. She´s fresh off the patch and has been teaching me a lot. She has a lot of faith and has the spirit so strongly with her. This week we found some awesome new people that are interested in the gospel!! We had ten investigators go to church yesterday--more than I have had one Sunday in a long time--and they are all progressing and want to know more! We are so excited to keep teaching them and keep seeing their progress. We´ve gotta stay humble, obedient, and faithful so that we can keep seeing miracles.
Brother R was baptized on Wednesday. His whole family went to see the baptism. It was a really special day for us. His change has been so huge and I am so grateful that I was able to see it. I feel like I just stood on the sidelines watching the winning game. I am grateful to have had my seat so close to the game.
We also found a new family to teach by offering to help a guy in the street wash his truck. Everyone tells us no, but I have seen how their minds change when they see that we want to help them. He didn´t accept our help, but he did accept our message and introduce us to his wife. He said he had never ever listened to missionaries from any church before in all his life, but accepted our visits because we had offered to help him. They are preparing for baptism and their first Sunday at church was yesterday. How amazing that a little helping hand can do so much for someone else.
¨In the April 2014 general conference, Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles reminded us: “We best serve our Father in Heaven by righteously influencing others and serving them. The greatest example who ever walked the earth is our Savior, Jesus Christ.”
Selfless service—forgetting ourselves, responding to the needs of others, and laying down our lives in their service—has always been a characteristic of disciples of Jesus Christ. As King Benjamin taught more than 100 years before the birth of the Savior, “When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God” (Mosiah 2:17). “Pure religion” is more than a declaration of belief; it is a demonstration of belief.¨
I love you all and hope you have a great week!!
