7-27-2015 - Infection Strikes Back

Hola familia y amigos!
   Well this week was good and then it got a little bit worse near the
end. So the leg infection that has been gone for a little over a month
came back again on Saturday morning so after a baptismal service on
Saturday we went to the ER again to get it checked out. We were there
from about 2 in the afternoon until about 8 at night which was
ridiculous but I was also not feeling very good. They put me on
antibiotics again so hopefully this time it will go completely away
this time and I won't have to deal with it ever again because it is
really slowing my work down because once again they told me that I am
not supposed to walk around for long hours and be up a lot.

   Anyway on to more happier news. This week we had a really good
lesson with an part member Peruvian couple. Their names are L and
E and they were former investigators that we picked about two weeks
ago. This past week we taught them the Plan of Salvation and committed
them to coming to church they said they would come so we crossed our
fingers yesterday and waited. They showed up! And they loved it
especially L who is not the member, but E loved it as well
because he hasn't been to church since he was about 9 years old.
Unfortunately they weren't able to stay the whole time but they told
us that we could come over for lunch after Church was over so being
Elders we couldn't turn down a meal appointment and especially one
with them so we went. Peruvian food at least what I had was delicious
I didn't get the name of it but whatever it was called it was so good.
And then we had a lesson with them afterwards about the Book of
Mormon. L wanted to keep reading but we had to go and the cool thing
was that she said that she was going to start reading right after we
left. It is really awesome to see someone get so excited about the
Gospel especially one who is not a member. On Thursday we went and
helped de-paint a porch with the son of a returning member.
De-painting is not a very easy thing but we had a good time doing it.

      One of the things that I have learned this week about the Gospel
and something that I have always known but that gets confirmed to me
almost every week is that no matter who you are what you have done or
where you are going in life the Gospel is for everyone and I know that
to be true. I also know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that
through His Atonement and the Plan of Salvation that we can find hope
and happiness in this life as we do our best to follow God's
commandments and give service to everyone around us. Love you all and
hope you have a great week.
