"Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: Be ye therefore wise as serpents and harmless as doves."
- Matt 10:16
This scripture is the motto of my week!!! As a missionary you have to be a bit of an actress....all the time. I'm learning lots in this sector.
Also, I was told I look like I'm 25. No comment for that one.
We had a bit of crazy week, but always a good week.
Primero, our referral from Washington DC said he can't get baptized because he is starting a yoga class that goes from 5am-7pm Saturday and Sunday. For a year and a half. I have no comment for this either. Yoga or baptism? I've been on my knees a lot this week.
Also we taught this lady that is so awesome! I've never had someone so fully understand the message of the restauración like she did. When we introduced the Book of Mormon her eyes lit up. She said "!Un otro testamento de Jesus!!!!!" and then went off about how excited she was. So amazing. The Lord really does prepare His people.
This week was the meeting with all the mission and we got lectured on obtaining referrals. Hermana Aspitia & I have had a lot of success with referrals, so Presidente called us up in front of the whole mission and we had to tell the story of some of our referrals. Yes I had to speak in Spanish in front of my whole mission. I thought I was going to die. People said it made sense, but I don't believe them. Anyways, it was a good experience for me.
I sure love you all and hope things are well in your part of the world!
