The Grand Search continues...

To clarify something quick - "the Flea in the ear" means that we never stopped bugging her. We were always calling her, reminding her to go to church. And when we were in the lessons, we would remind her again and again and again to go to church and to not smoke. Well, in the end it worked and she is as happy as can be. So "pulga en la oreja" means that we were annoyances.

Now on to more spiritual matters.....

In the very first verse of King Benjamin we find the purpose of general conference. 

Mosiah 2:9
"...for I have not commanded you to come up hither to trifle with the words which I shall speak, but that you should hearken unto me, and open your ears that ye may hear, and your hearts that ye may understand, and your minds that the mysteries of God may be unfolded to your view."

So according to our old friend (both in age and familiarity) we know that the reason we have GC is so that we can listen and then open our minds, hearts, and eyes so that we can Hear the whisperings of the Spirit, Understand those whisperings, and then See the purposes of God. we have to wait another 2ish months in order to have that blessing in our lives? I hope your answer is no because if not, you are terribly mistaken. We have access to GC talks 24/7 (unless the internet has randomly died and all of the Ensigns/Liahonas have been burned) so the opportunity to have our ears, hearts, and minds opened is always available to us. Take advantage of it NOW so that God can start working miracles in your life TODAY.

As for the work, basically everything is the same. A few of our investigators have returned and are progressing slowly but surely. The Grand Search for the people who are ready to hear the gospel continues.....and it won't stop until God says it does. So I guess we gotta keep on working and searching.....and of course walking ;)

Love ya all. My advice for this week is a quote from Mom. "Don't Be Stupid"
Elder Groneman
My comp and I got to ride in the back of the 2nd counselor´s truck because "there was no room for [us] in the in(side)" ;) Don't worry Mom, we were safe. We didn't get into a car accident that time. It was fun though!
