This week has been pretty great, a few struggles, but over-all pretty good. I love being on a mission and seeing the long span of things. I don't know if I have ever felt the love of Chirst so strongly than at this point in my life.
Update on Serviano: (Good & Bad)
On Tuesday we went by and talked about his answer of wither or not the church is true and if he needs to be baptized. He has a lot of crazy things going on in his life right now. But even though it all, he know that this is true. He started crying and was like I just feel something so strong right now telling me this is the right thing. (He then rebuked me and asked why I was the only one not crying. See Subject Line.) He didn't want to set a date just yet because there is someone he needs to talk to about it first. We came by and Wednesday and taught him about temples and the spirit world. He thought it was the coolest thing that his dad is getting missionary lessons right now too. We showed him pictures from the new temples pamphlet (because it's only in English...booo) And he said that's he feels like he's seen the Celestial Room before in a dream. (What?!) Now the sad news. Serviano went to to a good-bye party for his nephew on Saturday and he relapsed on his drinking. We are going by tonight to talk to him more about the Atonement and help him set some goals about how to follow the commandments better. His niece was getting baptized in the Catholic church, so he didn't come to church on Sunday either. (La Luche es Real Folks.)
Gia is going out of town for two weeks in Montana, so hopefully this doesn't stop her progression. We invited her to take her Book of Mormon with her and read from it every day. We are planning on sending her some texts of love and gospel stuff throughout the next weeks.
Last night, We were walking around town trying to follow the Spirit on what we should be doing and we just felt rather lost and confused. No one had come to church and we were a bit discouraged. We had prayed many time to see what neighborhood to go to and kept getting prompting that this wasn't right. Finally we deiced we needed to go visit a member. We prayed and went over to the Strohs. It was like 8:45, but they were home and awake! We told them about how we were feeling and then they shared that they have a couple that they really want us to teach! Hermana Stroh has a cousin and her husband that she has been thinking about introducing us to her for a while. Her name is Rosie and her husband is Miguel who works with Hermano Stroh. Yay! We are having dinner with them and Tosie and Miguel on Tuesday and we are very excited!
I know that this church is true. I know that Christ is our Savior and he loves each one of us so much! Whenever we doubt that love, we can kneel down and pray and wait for that answer. I've felt that love for me and for each one of my investigators so much. I'm so glad that the Lord is hasting his work and that I have a chance to be apart of it. miss you all so much!
