building testimonies

Monday, April 11, 2016

So this week has been a good testimony building week.

This week we had a meeting with President Russell and the State President in our zone. We just talked a lot about what we need to do better in this area and how the missionaries can work better with the members.

Yesterday here ins San Marcos there was a big party that they call the hipica. It is a crazy party where there are a bunch of horses and a lot of people drinking alcohol. They also give alcohol to the horses. It was so crazy trying to get from place to place avoiding all the craziness.

This week we have been focusing a lot in finding families to teach. We have been trying to contact and teach more families and have seen a lot of blessings in their lives. There is a family that we have been teaching that when we first started teaching them the husband and wife would sit on opposite sides of the room from each other. They always seem to be fighting over the littlest of things. At times I feel like they are 14. haha. But, yesterday when we went over yesterday they explained that they have seen a lot of small changes since they have centered their family in Jesus Christ. They explained that they now spend more time together and there is less fighting in the house.

I know that the Gospel blesses families. I know that if we turn to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we will be lifted. We will be strengthened so that we can overcome whatever trial that life puts in front of us. And most import, I know that families can be together forever.

Love you all and have a great week.

  • When you think of grandma, what word comes to mind?┬áMore than anything, just the love she had for her family.
  • How are your companions doing this week? How much more time is in the transfer? Is it all going well? Comps are doing really well. Transfers will not be this week, but the following. This are going good.
