Semana 82

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

We had stake conference yesterday and it was great! Four men from our ward were ordainded to the Melquisedec priesthood and that excited me a lot. We´re seeing a lot of changes in this ward and it´s headed in the right direction. Church asistance is also increasing and the ward is a lot more stronger now. Something that I´ve come to understand recently is that the most important thing in missionary work is bring souls to Christ and help establish the church and strengthen the wards and branches. If we baptize or reactivate a lot, then that means that asistance should go up and also have more men receiving the priesthood and more people renewing their convenants each week. If that doesn´t happen, then it´s not real growth and it´s just numbers. 

The family C asisted yesterday. They´re progressing really well and it was their second time in church. We hope that they can get baptized for the 28th of March. 

I´ve been studying a lot more the Bible and it´s helped me double the strength of my testimony in this month. The majority of members don´t study much from the Bible, but it´s important to read it. Everything of the Church is in the Bible. Everything about the book of mormon, apostasy, restauration, authority, temple ordinances, are in the bible. I´ve learned a lot of things that I´m starting to put into practice and it´s helping us a lot as we can answer the questions of people. We had a story about that with someone we taught who is evengelical and studies the bible a lot. What we shared helped her comprehend the importance of the book of mormon and the restauration. 

Well that´s about it for this week. Hope you have a great week and I hope to hear from you next week!
