Feliz Día de la Madre!
It was great to see you all! You look great. We had a great week! We were able to find 12 new investigators this week that are all awesome! It has just been hard for us to have frequent contact with them so hopefully we can help them to progress. This week we will have interviews with President Diaz. It will be my last until my final end of mission interview! How crazy is that?
A highlight of this week was going to a small village called Nueva Aurora. It is on the way to Punitaqui and I had never really even noticed it before. I am pretty sure that we are the first missionaries that have ever gone to work there. We went to teach a girl named Catalina that we had contacted earlier in the week here in Ovalle. She accepted the invitation to be baptized but didn’t come to church because her 7 month old son was sick.... there are a lot of great people out there so we are going to take advantage and teach as many people as we can.
I love being a missionary! This week I learned a lot about listening to the spirit. There are a lot of voices that try to drown out or even imitate the spirit. There is nothing that kills our faith more than following what we believe to be the spirit when it really isn´t. The spirit uplifts, enlightens and guides us to do what is right and to be obedient. I hope you all have a great week and that you can try to listen to the still, small and true voice of the spirit!
