Dear family and friends,
We’ve had a week full of tender mercies and milagritos. During a zone “attack”, we met to eat lunch together, but my comp and I didn’t have forks (because in Cunco we have been fork-less for a while now). When we went to buy some plastics ones, we ran into a member of the ward, who offered to lend us hers! Then on Wednesday, as we were tracting in Melipeuco, I thought of an investigator who had showed some interest in the last transfer, but I couldn’t remember her name nor her address. After calling a member, we got her name and relative location. I still couldn’t find the direction in my agenda, and even following the member’s directions we didn’t find it. So we went to visit someone else, and as we turned the corner, I recognized the house of Jenifer, the investigator we were looking for! 😄 We had a good lesson with her and her daughter, Conni, who are very interested in the Plan of Salvation. And on Sunday, our investigator Matìas came and brought a friend! His friend enjoyed sacrament meeting and agreed to meet with us later. It’s wonderful to see how God is mindful of all the little things. 😊
We met a man this week named Fernando. He was a reference from the church system, and we’ve been trying for weeks to set up an appointment with him. We met up with him after work this week and had a great chat. He’s seen a lot in his life, and he asks why he should believe in God. He was very interested in what we had to say about trials and the role that God plays in our lives. We left him with a Plan of Salvation pamphlet, and he says he really wants us to talk with his wife too. 😀 I’m so excited to share this with them both and to help them find peace and joy in Christ. 🙂
It’s been a good week here in Chile, and I’m grateful for each day that I have to serve as a missionary. It’s been the best 17 1/2 months of my life, in which I have grown (in more ways than one…:P) and felt so much the love of God for me and for my brothers and sisters around me.
I hope you all have a great week! May you see the miracles and tender mercies in each day. Be safe, be kind, be patient. And always remember who you are!!
