Anyway this week, Daniel and Vanessa made it to church! It was awesome because we had a lot of fellowship and they stayed for all three hours and clearly enjoyed themselves. We will have a few bugs to work out, like this one 🐜, but they are still going to be baptized soonish. One of their friends got his mission call and is going to
South America, they will be going to his farewell talk in December. Hopefully as baptized members. Anyway that was the highlight of this week, but anyway it is getting cold here! It's Like is 62 degrees right now 😎. Anyway I did get my blood drained, taken, drawn, early this week so you should be getting results, the zone leaders took us so we went out to eat for lunch afterwards and we have a photo has proof.
Also, we had zone conference this last Tuesday and Elder Mansfield, a former English missionary that was switched to Spanish speaking gave the scripture thought about how at the beginning of the Book of Mormon
one of the main reasons that the Lord had them go back a few times, instead of getting it all done before they left is that the Lord needed them to face trials so they could become what he needed them to become and for them to learn. I mean Nephi learned a lot, especially when the spirit tells him to kill Laban. The same thing can
be seen in Ether 6:1-12 if you see the boats representing us.
5 "And it came to pass that the Lord God caused that there should be a furious wind blow upon the face of the waters, towards the promised land; and thus they were tossed upon the waves of the sea before the wind.
6 And it came to pass that they were many times buried in the depths of the sea, because of the mountain waves which broke upon them, and also the great and terrible tempests which were caused by the fierceness of the wind."
The winds are the trials and things we face in this life in order to become the promised people. The people God knows and wants us to become.
Christ's Gospel and church does not care much about the theory of evolution since the gospel is about evolving people into better people.
Have a great week!!
