Semana 77

Hi everyone! I hope you´re all doing good! We´re doing great here in Ambato!

Me and Elder Reynolds are staying together for another change in Ambato. But all the other missionaries in our district were changed and they also closed one of the sectors, so now we´ll only have 4 missionaries instead of 6. The missionaries left behind investadores and less acitves progressing, including one that´s supposed to get baptized this week. So we´re going to have to help them all, including the other missionaries that will be coming here to know the sector. 

For a few days, I´ll be working in Pelileo instead of Ambato. All the missionaries in Pelileo had changes and the new lider of district here will be training a new missionary and won´t get his companion until Thursday. So until then, I´ll be here in Pelileo, since I´m the only one in this zone now that knows Pelileo (because I was there for 4 months). I´ll be helping them get to know the sector and the members and others here. My companion will be in Ambato with the other missionary in our district who is also training and is waiting to get his new companion.

We had a new investigador in church yesterday. His name is J. He lived in Canada for many years and while he was there, he asisted church and the missionaries came to visit him a little. He came back to Ecuador because of health problems, he had cancer in his eye and they had to take out one of his eyes. He was really excited to see the missionaries again and wants to learn and come back to church. He asisted yesterday and really liked it, and he has a fecha for the 28 of february. 

Our other investigadores didn´t asist church yesterday so the baptisms that we were going to have this week will be for the next week. We´ve been working hard though and we´re seeing a lot of restuls and miracles.

For these next few months we´ll be doing La Fe de Febrero Trae los Milagros de Marzo ( the faith of february brings the miracles of march) like we did last year. This year, we´ll be reading the book mormon in these two months, marking every time it mentions Jesus Christ, weekly services, fasting, personal sacrifices and always trying to recognize the miracles. It´s going to be really good. As a mission, we need to increase our faith. There are a lot of missionaries that don´t have much faith and without faith, we can´t do anything. But with faith, all things are posible. (Moroni 7:33) I know that miracles are real and that we can only see miracles if we have faith.

Well I hope you all have a great week! Stay safe and I can´t wait to hear from you all next week! Chao!

-Elder Gomez

Amo ser misionero. Se que Jesucristo vive y que Él dirige la Iglesia hoy en día. 

Y Cristo ha dicho: si tenéis fe en mi tendréis poder para hacer cualquier cosa que me sea conveniente. 
-Moroni 7:33
