Estamos bien aquí en Ambato. Aunque hubo las fiestas y locuras por el año nuevo, trabajamos duro esta semana y pudimos ver resultados. Estamos viendo cambios aquí. Tuvimos un nuevo investigador en la iglesia con una fecha bautismal y también algunos menos activos. Estamos muy felices y animados.
New Year`s was a little crazy! We could only leave the house for appointments 100% confirmed and for lunch. So we spent most of the day inside. We bought pizza and did a puzzle. I was also able to finish the Book of Mormon again, which was my goal to read it before the new year. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and every time I read it, I learn something new. My next goal is to read it again by March. They were also burning muñecas by our house having a big party and everyone was playing loud music and blowing off fireworks all night.
We taught a new family this week called the family R. There is the husband wife and a baby. We found them the week before, when they were carrying a ton of packs of shoe souls onto the terrace of a three floor house. We helped them carry the shoe souls and they accepted us to come back. We came back this week and they are all really good. The husband, F doesn`t have much of a religious background and he wants to learn more about Jesus Christ. His wife has been listening to the Jehova`s Witnesess, but she really likes what we`re teaching and the two want to change and come closer to God and be baptized. F asisted church yesterday, but his wife wasn`t able to come. He said he really liked church. They have a baptismal date for the 31st of January.
We also had some less actives come back to church yesterday. It doesn`t matter how long we haven`t been to church, or how strong our testimony is, the Gospel is for everyone and we are always welcome to come back and partake of the blessing again and renew our convenants.
With this new year, I`d invite you all to read the book of mormon again. It changes lives. If any of you aren`t sure it this Church is true, then read the book of Mormon, and pray and ask God if it is true. I know that if you ask sincerely with faith in Christ, you will receive an answer.
Well that`s all for this week. Hope you all have a great week and be safe and I hope to hear from you all next week!
Amo ser misionero. Se que Jesucristo vive y que él nos ama y quiere ayudarnos a poder tener la vida eterna con él y con Nuestro Padre Celestial. :)
