God blesses us when we do our part!

This week was super good… in some ways. We found some good people and we are finding more, so we will be seeing them progress. So, we as missionaries in this ward do a lot. The members... well they are good but we help them a lot with their work. We helped a lady put a roof on her house and it took a lot of time. Some of the members seem to think that we have all the time in the world to do what they want, now don’t get me wrong I love doing service but what I don’t like to do is take the opportunity away from the members because it would bless them.

On the positive side we have been doing family home evenings every week on Friday for the last month and a half and this week a member that was excommunicated brought a friend and this friends name is Juan! He is from Peru and really wants to learn. We taught a to him lesson on Monday and he said that we had a dream that someone taught him the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ and then said that it could have been us. He said that he feels like he needs to follow in the church and then his family will follow him. 

We also were a little bummed because of the service we had done and the time we lost... so on Sunday we really wanted to work hard and find some people and teach lessons. So at about 5:45 we were walking in the street and hadn’t had too much success but we were working hard! As we walked in the street I said a short prayer to heavenly father asking that he could bless us with someone because we were trying to do our very best in the work and that we needed motivation. So we went by some guy that we had found a while back and he said that for another day we could come by. Then we knock 4 more houses. Finally, that fourth house, a man came to the door and we talked to him a little and then he asked us to come into his house. We went in and we shared with a family of 5 people!

I know that God answers our prayers but I testify that he won’t bless us when we aren’t doing our part and all that we can. I know that Heavenly father loves us and I know that this is the true church. We can only find true and everlasting happiness through this gospel. 

Also our investigator, Jorge was sick on Saturday and we couldn’t visit him and he really wants to get baptized but we want him to do more of his part so we have been helping him a lot. On Sunday we didn’t think that he was going to come to church then he just showed up. I know that the people that truly have felt the Holy Ghost in their lives testifying that this is the true church, those are the people that will do all they can to complete what God wants. 

I love you all!!
