This week has been a difficult yet rewarding week. I feel like I am washing an area because almost all of the main investigators dropped us or are not progressing, and so we are starting from scratch with finding new investigators. Also, we have a new lider misional who just returned from his mission about 2 years ago and was assistant and is super motivated to work with us, and help the ward. We are excited to start working with him and the members more. We will be working on getting to know the members better and to gain the confidence of the leaders because we need to start receiving references because I think the sisters before us knocked all of the doors in the whole city and working with references is so much better for everyone involved. So it has been a long week with lots of walking but the next week will be better!!
Even though it was a long week without grand results, we were able to see many small miracles. For example, Saturday was a really rough day for both of us, but Sunday was awesome! I just love how in the church we can just leave the frustrations of the past week behind and start over new. All of the testimonies were simple yet powerful. The class of Sunday school answered a question that I had and directly addressed a problem that had been bothering me the whole week. And in the last hour the stake president spoke with everyone and really motivated me to keep working in the obra de salvacion because the Lord is truly pressuring His work and we need to work double to strengthen ourselves, our families and the church in this day. He is a great man and is very motivated and he made me feel super motivated. Also, in the evening we were walking past a house with 2 ladies sitting on the patio and I felt the impression that we should go talk to them. We I started up a conversation and at first they said that they were Catholics and were happy with their religion but after talking for a while they actually let us in to talk. We were able to sing the song families can be together forever and we felt the spirit very strongly that this knowledge was just what they need.
Maybe I wont see great miracles in my mission, and maybe I wont baptize a ton of people, but the small miracles that we can see everyday and the opportunidad to be an instrument in the Lord´s hands even for a moment makes it all worth while.
