I´m lacking creativity today so let´s just go through the highlight of every day this week:
That day we taught Italo, the contact that came to church completely of his own accord without ever teaching him. He is GREAT. At church, he had written down all the questions that he had and we helped to answer them during the lesson. He was very receptive to the Restoration and very excited to read the Book of Mormon. His wife died 2 years ago of ovarian cancer and because of her sickness they never were able to have kids so he had a lot of questions about why we go through trials in this life. We found him (or really he found US) during ths perfect time in his life when he has soul-searching questions, and the gospel of Jesus Christ is the answer!
Also that night Hna Glunt and I went to this tiny park to sit down and eat our packed dinner for a few minutes but there weren´t any seats, just 2 swings next to a dude on a swing talking on the phone. I wasn´t about to go sit next to him but Hna Glunt wanted to so I thought, alright sure. We started talking to him after he got off the phone and turns out he´s a MEMBER who was baptized about 8 years ago but moved (he´s 25 right now) and when he moved back he didn´t know anyone, so never came to church. We talked with him and helped him out with his questions about the Spirit, also taught him how to pray again, and we´ll start visiting him this week! All while we were sitting on some swings in a random park in Ignacio Merino. The Lord works in mysterious ways :)
Her quote that will be my mantra this week and possibly forever is ¨Put a smile on and get to work.¨ Honestly, that´s the recipe for happiness as a missonary.
Pres. Rasmussen talked a lot about MIRACLES which went perfectly with my ponderizing scripture this week, 2 Nephi 27: 23, 26. I KNOW that God is a God of miracles. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. But he only works according to our faith.
Welp, time´s up! I love you all and I want to hear about the spiritual experiences you´re all having!
