No, Elder Bednar didn't visit us :´( It's all good though :)
another change flew by. We have changes this week. We expect that Elder
G** will be leaving because he's been here for 7 months now. I guess
we will see - you never know what could happen.
besides walking up endless hills and stairs, this week was a good one.
We were able to teach a few more people but thanks to it being the 2nd
to last week of summer vacations, the majority of people weren't home!
Yay!!! [I'm assuming that's a sarcastic cheer.] But that'll all change next week when everyone goes back to work
and school. Thank goodness!
The bishop here in
O'Higgins is the best one I've seen in my time here in Chile. He helps us
a ton and is working towards getting all of the auxiliary organizations
to being more focused on missionary work. Very soon this ward will be
one of the strongest in the mission if the other ward leaders continue
responding positively. They are already helping us more and we are going
to start entering their classes to give brief "training sessions" or a
brief lesson of sorts in order to help them know how to work more in
Oh, just so you know, once
again I'm in Viña doing tramites (legal paperwork). Yep, the tradition of
doing it with EVERY companion continues. How does this always happen???
ya. That's about it for this week. Not too many exciting things
happened. Oh, today I read a scripture that I really liked. D&C 132:
5. [For all who will have a blessing at my hands shall abide the law which was appointed for that blessing, and the conditions thereof, as were instituted from before the foundation of the world.] It explains so simply that in order to receive a specific blessing we
must obey a specific commandment. AND that every commandment was paired
up with a specific blessing in the premortal life. Which means that
before this life we already knew what the commandments were and how to
obtain certain blessings. A part of us choosing to come to the earth was
accepting the fact that we would have to be obedient in order to obtain
blessings. I just love how simple and logical the gospel is. It's a lot
easier to understand that way.
Love you all.
Please try not to lock your keys in the car. Freezing to death while
lamenting your forgetfulness is a sad way to spend a day.
