[Ryan is hoping to send pictures later when they can get to the chapel. He says it is safer there, that maybe he won't get another virus!] This week went really well! This week i learned a lot about relying on the spirit and how important it is for us. We had a lot of experiences with that this week, but the one that i liked the most happened last night. We were walking to the house of a family and we got a thought to go and visit another family instead. we didnt know why but we followed the spirit. We got there and the hermana answered the door and was so relieved to see us, she said that her husband and been really sick all day and was in a lot of pain and she didnt know what to do, so she said a prayer and we showed up. We were able to give him a blessing and he started to feel a lot better. It was such a good experience and taught me the importance of following the spirit :) Some times we need to remove the distractions in our lives to be able to hear the still small voice, i hope we all can try and apply that so that we can be in the right place at the right time when others are in need. Sorry this is short, i love you all! have a great week!
This week was really interesting! First off, happy fathers day dad! Your the best :) thanks for all you do for me and the family! This week we had an english class, and everyone in the ward and their dog said they were so excited to come, we also promised pancakes.... so we figured that we would have about 50-100 people come, so we got all this stuff to make pancakes and we ended up making close to 150 pancakes or so.... and then about 10 people showed up to english class... haha lets just say we will be eating pancakes for the next month! Haha it was so funny. The class went great, we just dont know why the people didnt come! We are going to try again this week, but without the pancakes...! haha ;)
This week i learned a lot about the importance of pacience (if i spelled that wrong its not my fault...haha!) and planning. we have been able to see that as we work with the members we have to plan well and work paciently to find success. the lord knows His timing and after we ¨have done all that we can do, the grace of God is sufficient.¨what a promise that we have!! If we give our all, then God will help us fill in the rest. We are seeing that things are slowly falling into place! ( i wish it was faster) but if we give all that we can, we can trust in the Lord that we are doing His will and not ours.
I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week! Trust in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, do HIS will, and you will see miracles. I promise :) Love this work so much. have a wonderful week!
This week was great! working with the members is so much better! This week we found a part member family and we are now teaching three of the kids in that family and the girlfriend/almost wife of one of the sons! It is awesome to see because the whole family came to church on Sunday and now we are just working on some things with them and we will be seeing another eternal family soon! Church was incredible! haha i felt like i was back in utah there where so many people! we had about 130 asistence and when i got up to give my testimony i was speechless. It is so much different than chos malal! I love them both, the both have there ups and downs, but that was so cool to see so many members in one place!
Miracle of the week: the hermanas in our ward called us and told us that they had a lesson planned with a man but their member that was going to go with them bailed, and they cant go alone, because he lives alone, so we got to go and teach him instead :) he has been coming to church for about a month and a half he loves everything but for some reason didnt want to be baptized yet. Mi and my comp didnt have anything planned, but we just followed the spirit and we asked questions and we were able to find out what was missing and help him, and we are now planning his baptism for this saturday :) it was such amiracle. it is amazing what happens when we follow the spirit, because at the same time the hermanas got to go to another investigator that really needed them in that moment. It is amazing to see that when we follow the spirit everything works out and the Lord knows what we need to do. Trust in him and he will direct thy paths :)
Great week! Love you all, and have a wonderful week!
This week was awesome!! Really different, but i loved it and love this change here in Cipolletti!! I am learning so much especially from my comp and I am growing into the person that God needs from me. Here in Cipo the work is really different because there are like 130 members! haha so that was really werid! when i saw the chapel i thought i was in Utah again! haha it is much different than the 20 or so members in Chos! Elder Mccook is helping me learn how to work with the members better and i am learning a lot and seeing that really it is the way to do missionary work. We are working with one family that are all baptized but the little kid that is 10, because they were inactive for a while, and now they are reactivating and we are going to have the baptism of Maximo the 18!!! That is our plan :) we are working with many people, especially part member families, and teaching those that havent made it to the waters of baptism, it is really cool because we are strengthening the family and the members and we are also bringing other souls to Christ :) It is an amazing work. I love it :) Things are great! Im so happy and so excited! Funny story time. THis week i had to cut my hair and there always has been someone to do it... but in Cipo there isnt, and we didnt want to have to pay and we thought... well it cant be too hard to cut hair! SO we grabbed some siccors and my comp started to cut my hiar.... hahah lets just say we ended up having to go pay to fix it! hahah it was funny :) things are amazing! Love you all! have a great week!!!
