Faith to Heal

This week was a good week.

They liken the mission to a field that is already to harvest; I feel that in the mission field there is always a lot of work to do. We have a lot of investigators but a lot of them are not ready to progress and be baptized. Something that we are doing is we are cultivating our field. We are visiting everyone that we have and narrowing our numbers to concentrate on those that are ready to hear the message and apply it in their lives.

Luz and Erick were both really sick this week and only Luz came to church.
The good thing is I think that we can baptize them both this 18.

The president of our branch and another member had a reference for us. They had already taught him a little. We went to his house and taught him lesson 1 and talked about baptism. His leg is really ugly. He broke it and it’s really swollen. The doctor said that he can´t do much for about 3 months. We will see with the help of God what can happen. I have faith that he can be baptized this month.

The mission is an interesting process. I know that this is the work of the Lord. Even with that knowledge I have learned that for us to have a part in the salvation of other people, we also have to walk a little bit in the garden of Gethsemane. Sometimes things are a little hard, but I know that these experiences are making us stronger and more intelligent.

I love you guys so are amazingly awesome.
