Miercoles. Today was our weekly district meeting and I was humbly reminded on how much growth and improvment I have in becoming a teacher of the gospel. We split up into groups and had some practice time to apply what we had learned in utilizing the Book of Mormon as a teaching tool . I was paired up with Elder Otteson ( yes that elder who is from South Jordan #BHS) His ability to teach by trusting in the spirit is something that blew me away.. ´Dont think, REACT´ a lot of times my over analitical brain tries to be perfect.. It´s a goal unatainable and not a situation in which the spirit can reside.. Simply listen to those you talk to, trusting our Heavenly Father will give the words neccasary to hel bring our Brother and Sisters unto Christ.
Jueves: For the second time this week we saw a full rainbow shining brilliantly in the horizon, and for the second time I was caught without my camera... It´s ok, I know he´s there, He´s always here wth me. Him, Being my Grandpa Clyde.. He Always loved the Rainbows, I love too :)
Viernes: Passed by our good buddy Kevin Mendoza this morning.. Man that kid is a stud :) He was hanging out with his cousins named Erik, Fernando, Andy, and Angel.. They all now have desires to follow there cousin and be baptized like our Jesus Christ.. Working with the young men is something I love and because of the example of Kevin, many of his family members will enter the waters of baptism :)
Sabado: A normal activity for the young men was futbol in the field adjacent to the chapel. AS missionaries here in Bermudez it is more probable then not that we´ll be in charge of the activity, but hey we´re young men too.. And I´ve never complained about playing some Futbol. En route to the chapel there was three teens messing around in the park and of course we invited them to come and play.. At first they were a little timid talking with 2 guys in white shirts but as soon as we brought up Futbol they were all in.. I was imagining the movie The Field of Dreams.. ´If you build it they will come´ it´s a little different down here in Argentina.. ¨If you say Futbol they will come´ It was a fun afternoon and don´t mean to brag too much but your friend Elder Larsen.. He scored the final goal in the final minute ;)
Domingo: Today was our Stake Conference and President Zanni gave one of the greatest talks I have every experienced in person. Titles ´Hermano Mayor´ or ´Older Brother´ He began with the poor examples of Laman and Lemuel.. Then using the example of his own older bother, moved through the great events of his life such as assisting early moring seminary, serving a mission, marrying in the temple.. President also of times didn´t know why he did these things initially, but he was just following the steps of his Older brother. To finish President Zanni said ´I can now imagine our older brother, even Jesus Christ, before coming to this earth saying... I served my mission and lived a perfect life.. Follow my example¨
He is the way, He is our Hermano Mayor, may we all follow his teachings a little better in our lives :)
Three! Yes three new elders were ordained to the Melchizedek priesthood today from the Capitan Bermudez Ward.. Among them was the mighty Hermano Ferryra.. Santiago Ochoa a young 18 year old with plans to serve a mission and Juan Ordeñez (Chi Chi) a convert of just 2 years who also has plans to serve a mission.. During the incredible ordinations, I couldn´t help but shed many tears of joy and gratitude. The incredible power of the priesthood is something we all take for granted sometimes.. It is quite literally the power of God, restored to earth through the prophet Jospeph Smith... Today will be a memorable, and a blessing to these special families for the eternities.. Can´t express my gratitude and excitement for these incredible men in life and there examples.
Elder More and I, due to our apartment being a oven, have began sleeping out under the stars on our patio thingy.. Man I stinking love sleeping outside under the stars.. There´s not much better things in this life then falling into a good dream after with wondering awe gazing into the Heavens of our Father in Heaven.
Thank you for everything, love and miss you all, Enjoy the holiday spirit of Christmas:)
many grammar mistakes, hoping adysen can help me out :)
