Elder Gillespie - August 20, 2012
We had a fantastic week this week! I loved the experiences we had. We all as a zone worked super hard and we have completed all of our goals for the week as well, and today we played basketball again as a zone.
I had the chance to leave on a division with a member of the ward to do his home teaching and I learned again the importance of home teaching and the difference it makes in peoples lives. The program comes from God that we may speak of the welfare of our souls, cry with those who cry and that we may teach and understand one another, and both are edified and rejoice together.
Sunday we had 4 investigators in Church, and Sara Yanpara came solo and had no association with the church before yesterday. Jessica, who doesn't live in our sector however she has a few friends in our ward and they invited her. Gustavo Tapia who has 12 years and has a very special gift of feeling the Spirit. Camila who we visited her mom Humbertina who hasn't come to church in years however now is coming and now we work with Camila to get her baptized. After Sacrament meeting Sergio Arroyo baptized his daughter, Sara Arroyo, everyone could feel strongly of the Spirit. I challenged right then and there Jessica to get baptized, in the evening we challenged Camila as well-
We are growing together and learning to do what is right quicker.
Be obedient- it's easier
Have a Wonderful day- because you can choose to
