this week was pretty good. the first few days were a bit slow but then things started picking up a bit. we were teaching a bit but not really finding anybody really great.
then on friday we went out with a member, we were walking around after all our plans had fallen through, and a little kid said hi to us. we decided to contact his house, and his mom came out and went back to grab her keys, to open the gate. we taught about the Atonement and baptism and she accepted a baptismal date but then didnt end up coming to church.
on saturday we were also out contacting and we contacted a guy (Agustin) and let us in and said he had a friend that was a member. we taught him about the Atonement and the Gospel, and he asked us if he could get baptized again. we explained how baptism should be done and he accepted a date too, but said he wasnt gonna be able to come to church. yesterday we visited him again and he had read in the book of Mormon but is gonna go on vacation for Christmas so he wont be able to get baptized this month.
on friday we had a zone training about the iniciative that the Church is doing for Christmas, ''He is the Gift''. (christmas.mormon.org) we watched the video and talked about everything the church is doing with this, and it was an incredibly edifying experience. the video is quite powerful, and even when we werent watching the video, i felt the Spirit testifying strongly to me that this is the Church of Christ, that the Church exists to grow and help more people become worthy of attaining Celestial glory, and that God is hastening his work in preparation for the Second Coming of Christ. I invite you all to watch the video, think a bit about how you can embrace a bit more fully the Gift that God gave us of his only begotten Son in your lives, and then to share that Gift with others.
