I truly hope that you all passed a wonderful Christmas with your families and that everyone has been filled with the love of God in this special time of the year. It is my prayer that all year around we may continue to nourish this love in our hearts for all of our neighbors and search for the opportunities to make them happier.
Elder Evans and I were able to enjoy our Christmas a ton and it was a privilege for us to strengthen our faith and confidence in God and His Goodness. Jesus really did give us a Consolador (Comforter or the Holy Ghost) to teach us and testify of the truths of God and thanks to the confirming touch of the Holy Ghost we receive a Peace that the World really cannot give us. John 14:26-27
John 14: 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.This past week at least every other day we have received a bunch of rain. We hear of entire cities that have been flooded out and won’t be able to habitate for the next 4 or 5 months, which is a bummer. However, here in Pirayu we do not face those same difficulties.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
This week Sister Pascula arrived home from the hospital the 24th of December and still is not doing too great. One of the sons of the Familia Bobadilla cut his leg husking corn with a knife. Our best progressing investigator invited us to her Christmas Dinner Party and then ''Stood us up.'' So that made us really sad and then also didn’t come to Church so we will go back and see why they didn’t come to church this Sunday. Our other investigator that is progressing was not able to convince his children to give him a ride to church so he could not come because his feet are BAD.
On Christmas Day we had our P-day and so we went and met up with the other elders and played some Basketball and went out to eat.
The Highlight of the Whole week came from being able to talk and see my family once again. I love them so much and am undoubtedly grateful for the restored gospel of Jesus Christ which allows us to be together FOREVER.
I love you all!
