Ilumina El Mundo
Well it has been a pretty solid week down here in Pachacutec, Ventanilla, Callao, Peru. We haven't had much time to work in our area this week, but we still saw some miracles. On Tuesday we had a multi-zone conference at the mission offices where we received some great instruction from President Stauffer. The main emphases were teaching and testifying while we contact in the street and unity in companionship. They also showed us the new church christmas video Ilumina el Mundo.
Then Thursday night my companion Elder Poma started getting a fever. Friday he was bedridden, so I had to stay in our apartment all day. Normally we find two members to help us so that the companion who is healthy can go work, but all of our members were busy. So I read the scriptures for like 4 hours, it was great. My companion was sick Saturday too, but we had members to help us so it was alright.
By Sunday Elder Poma was feeling better. When we were at church we saw a young women who we didn't recognize. We asked her if she was a member and she said no. It turns out she was a former investigator with Elder Chalampuento, and she came to church after a few months of not coming. We went and visited her in the afternoon, and after we resolved a few doubts, she agreed to be baptized this Saturday.
When Elder Poma arrived here, he taught me to always pray Saturday night that someone who we don't know might come to church. And since we started praying for this, we have been seeing miracles like this, with people we don't even know coming to church.
One thing I've learned this week is the importance of writing down our spiritual experiences. I know you all have a journal, write down a spiritual experience a least once every week. I promise you that you will feel the spirit more in your life and you will be able to testify more powerfully when the time comes. I love you all, have a great week!
