Hola de Barrio

Todo está bien aquí en Precursores!

Talon was assigned to be a zone leader with this most recent transfer.
Wow, I didn´t see this change coming, but now I realize it was necessary because I stopped working by faith, and started working by knowledge. Now I´ve been thrown back into the world of faith, and I´m doing my best to baptize my sector by fire. 

Elder Castro is the best. We get along like long lost friends, and we´ve got a unity that reminds me of Elder Eklof and Elder Sagastume. We work hard, and we´re making progress, both in our sector and personally. Elder Castro is progressing rapidly personally. He shared with me that in this short week he has learned what it means to be guided by the spirit and how to be happy and obedient. I love working with him. 

Being with sister missionaries is very different. It keeps a level of respect and formality in the zone that just isn´t present when there are only Elders like there have been in my previous zones. I have to admit I was a little scared to be in charge of sister missionaries, but now I feel like I´m getting used to it.

In our zone we are asking for key indicators of asked references and baptismal invitations with date. They seem to be just what our zone needed to improve. Hopefully we will see progress in the main key indicators as a result of the progress in these two.

Sé que Nuestro Padre Celestial es consciente no solo de quienes somos, sino quienes seremos y como vamos a llegar allí. Cuando somos humildes, nos guía a través de nuestro imperfección perfectamente. Sé que Dios nos manda pruebas para perfeccionarnos, pero depende en nosotros si tales pruebas serán eficaces o no. Será según nuestro humildad. Se que nuestros pensamientos no son los de Dios, Y que no debemos entender todo, sino todo lo esperamos, o sea en todo, guardamos la fe. La felicidad empieza con fe. Sé que la iniquidad nunca fue felicidad, y por consiguiente, nunca necesitamos una descanso de justicia, sino una resurrección, o revivamiento, o una remisión para alivia el cansancio y motivarnos a progresar. Dios nos revela según su conocimiento, y no lo nuestro. El sabe quien va a estar en una cita y quien no. Planes inspiradas no cambiaran al aprender algo de repente, porque Dios ya sabia cuando nos revelo el plan. El es lo mismo ayer, hoy, y para siempre. No podemos cambiar su voluntad, sino nos saldrá mejor al aceptarla y también acudir a ella.

[I know that our Heavenly Father is aware of not only who we are, but also who we will become and how we will get there.  When we are humble, He guides us through our imperfections perfectly.  I know that God sends us tests to perfect us, but it depends upon us if the tests will be effective or not.  It will be according to our own humility.  I know that our thoughts are not God's thoughts.  And that we should not understand everything, but rather we can hope on all things, and keep the faith.  Happiness begins with faith.  I know that wickedness never was happiness and therefore there is never a need for a break from justice, but rather a resurrection, a revival, or a remission to relieve fatigue and motivate us to progress.  God sends us revelation according to His understanding, not ours.  He knows who will be on date, and who will not.  Inspired plans don't change by learning something all of a sudden, because God already knew when he revealed the plan to us.  He is the same yesterday, today, and always.  We can not change His will, but it will be better for us when we can accept and abide by His will.]
Thank you so much for your faith! I love you!

Love, Elder Hicken

Hurrah for Israel!
