"This week went by pretty fast. Time really is precious cuz a week can go by in like a flash of an eye. I have been thinking how am I doing, what have I've done and what am I going to do. I think self evaluations really help a lot to see how we can better ourselves. What I love about the mission is a lot of things, growth of knowledge/testimony, the people of Guatemala and the mission, the experiences. I think I like everything about ha because I'm really learning a lot about now but also for the future. The mission is a once in a lifetime and I'm glad I made this decision to serve and receive these blessings."
It was a pretty good week. We have some people that can really progress. We were able to cerrar el acuerdo (close the deal) with one investigator this Sunday. There is a scripture that says in Mark 16:16: He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. when my companion asked that question (to be baptized?) after reading that scripture, I felt the spirit very strong and I know everyone else did too. Then, he accepted. What I'm trying to get better at is putting my trust in God more then in my own knowledge cuz it doesn't work the other way.
WITH GOD'S HELP
"Those who are obedient to the Lord’s commandments and who faithfully observe the Word of Wisdom are promised particular blessings, among which are good health and added physical stamina." - President Thomas S. Monson, 2016, October General Conference
I like the quote cuz lots of people here have situations with the palabra de sabiduria (word of wisdom). It's hard but they can do it. With God's help we can overcome cualqier (any) addiction.
