Todo està bien aquí en Jorge Chavez!
Today we went to the foot doctor to get my foot all fixed up.
It feels a whole lot better already. One of those experiences where you don`t know what you`ve been missing until you get `updated` and realize that it would have been a whole lot easier to be proactive in the first place. I have been learning that lesson a lot recently. Actually, I`ve come to the conclusion time and time again, that there is absolutely no reason to abstain from being proactive.
[Looks like an ingrown toe-nail, Poor Guy!]
One way that I`ve learned that lesson this week is with Bryan, one of our investigators who was on date to be baptized this past week. During the week we learned that his evangelical family had no idea that we were meeting with the intention to do more than just talk. So when he invited his sister to his baptism, the whole plan went kaput. His mom, who was on vacation, came back home and now won`t let us near him. We`ve talked to him twice in the street, but it would have been more efficient to have talked with the family when we set him on date. We`ve got a project ahead of us.
We had three members of an unmarried family on date as well, but they have a habit of going to the beach every Sunday that we have yet to break. We will be visiting them this week to reestablish a Spiritual Progress Plan with them.
Our one on date is Josuè--the 9 year old son of a less active family we discovered underneath the rocks. He went to church with his mom yesterday, and his dad told us that if they don`t give him Sundays off this week, he`s going to quit. The family has got a lot to change, but is humble enough to obtain it.
Elder Pinedo is doing great. He is ready to train. He`s training me, actually. We`ve learned a lot together as we`ve worked in this ward. We`re prepared for whatever the Lord has in store for us this week, whether it`s staying together, leaving, or being left.
Sè que no hay excepciones, solo casos especiales. Los Principios no cambian con cada persona, sino la manera de aplicárselas. No hay preparación para superar aprendizaje, ni ganas al testimonio. Sè que estamos en el evolución delcumplimento de los tiempos. Dios es un Dios de Progresión sempiterno, y estamos bien cerca del fin de este etapa. Se que los pensamientos y caminos de Dios no so nuestros, el etapa enterado en todo, y sobreobserve nuestro profeso, meticulosamente probando nuestra fe y perdonando nuestros errores. Sè que es posible lograr la perfección, pero solo hay una manera cual es el plan de salvación. Sè que dios no prueba en las maneras mas difíciles para nosotros, como el tiempo, la diligencia, y la perseverancia. Si escudriñamos la palabra de Dios, estos se volverán en herramientas para nuestro progreso espiritual. Este semana aprendí que la fe es una confianza que por medio de la Expiación será cada error borrado, cada alma alzado, y cada labio temblante tranquilizado.
Thanks for everything you`re doing to bring to pass the work and glory of God!
I love you!
Hurrah for Israel!
