MIRACLES!!! Me and my comp are absolutely killing it right now and this past week was super super successful! We have 2 baptisms for this sunday which is great and we have an inumerable amount of friends who are progressing right now!! All thanks to the book of mormon!!! We are so thankful for the lord and for all the blessings that he has given us because he led us to so many families and friends who desperately needed the gospel of jesus christ and we feel so blessed to have been able to find them in the right moment at the right time. Also this week me and my comp ran zone conference and we gave an amazing class and we implemented a new game plan to help define the vision of this great mission and allow missionaries to have a more elevated mindset in order to accomplish greater and better things! AWESOME AWESOME WEEK and I cant wait to see what else we are able to do! Also something funny is that I ate a whole raw pizza and got food poising but through the power of prayer and my own will power I got through it and survived hahah. Other than that Ive been doing great!
Hey everyone! This past week was really great and full of fun miracles. On sunday bishop Waddell from the seventy came and we had a fun devotional with him and he taught us about the importance of putting not only baptismal dates but temple dates as well so that all our friends can remain active members of the church. Also that same sunday we set a record of friends at church and it was incredible to see how many of our friends we had attend church!! Also we had a really cool experience with a haitian couple that we are teaching and we are trying to have them get married and we have been trying to find them a new place to stay and so we have been praying a ton for them and it was incredible to see that god heard our prayers and the lord helped us find a new house for them and in the last lesson with them they both had came to the conclusion that they wanted to get married!!!! So they are now progressing a ton and they are one step closer to baptism!!!! Also this past week we ate haitian food everyday for lunch and I have never been so happy!! If you guys ever want some good cheap food then you guys need some haitian friends!! Awesome week and full of miracles and we have been seeing a lot of fruits from our hard work so I couldnt be more excited to see what we can accomplish this coming week!
Lots of miracles from fasting this week!! Well this past week we have been fasting for our friends and to find new people who desperately need the gospel and once more the lord has provided!! It`s incredible how fast the lord works. After closing the fast we went to an appointment and we walk into the house where our friends live and we saw that the family wasnt there but we saw a man sitting in the dark and we decided to talk to him and he turned out to be really receptive and he spoke perfect englsih because he studied english in North Carolina but he said that he was suffering a lot because he just got seperated and he has a lot of debt and a ton of other bad things happened to him but the last thing he said was that he has been looking for God but he couldnt find him and he told us that he has been trying to find the church of jesus christ but he hasnt been able to find it. So he told us that right before we came up to him he was just praying to God to help him find THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST!!!! I testified to him of the restoration and I told him that we belong to the restored church of jesus christ and the man started to cry and he said, ¨I have finally found it!¨ We invited him to church on sunday but sadly he doesnt live in our sector and he was just here on vacationes but his last day of his vacation is sunday so he told us that he would go to church before he left so we are super excited for him! We had lots of miracles just like this this week!!! Also I was able to go back to one of my old sectores and see the son of one of my good friends that I was teaching get baptized! Awesome baptism and it was awesome to see a lot of my fruits still in the church progressing!! Awesome past week and super busy with lots of planning and meetings!!
Hey everyone!! Crazy past week and lots of work! Me and my comp have set some extremely high goals and so this whole past week we have been trying to find like crazy. We both have never worked at such a fast pace and we have never been so happy! We have been able to put on an insane amount of baptismal dates and it is such a blessing to see how the lord has put so many people in our path! As we set goals and exercise our faith the lord works mighty miracles in our lives and he provides the means necessary in order to magnify our callings and bring forth eternal blessings upon the children of our loving heavenly father. SO the message for this week would be to exercise your faith and be humble enough to listen to the promptings of the spirit and if we do so the lord will shed upon your families many many blessings. BIG DREAMS, BIGGER GOALS, MORE ACTION!! #waxstrong #waxdoble
We´re still on a role!!! Double,double double!!! We set some big goals this week and we have been having to wake up an hour earlier, leave earlier in the morning, fast lunchs, and we have been taking advantage of every moment to teach and find! We have been killing it and I have never seen so much success!! This past week we had zone conference with the whole north part of the mission and I had to do a couple training courses for the mission and it was fun and I also won the missionary consecration contest for the second time in a row!!! This week I also had a super cool experience with fasting! So we are teaching a couple and we love them so much and we want them to keep the law of chastity in order to receive a ton of blessings and so we fasted and prayed for this couple and we went by to teach them and our prayers were immediantly answered! The Lord had provided this couple with many signs and answers for example random magazines about marriage that randomly appeared on their pourch or other friends and freaking jehova witnesses that talked with them about getting married hahahah. I love the lord and I love how I can put my trust in him in order to be of greater benefit to his beloved children. I have never felt so strongly about the power of fasting till now and I know that sometimes we think, ¨Why does god want us to do this?¨ But what god wants for us is to show him that we trust in him and his word so that he can work miracles in our lives and the lives of those that we love. Awesome week, Obedience,double, fasting, faith….Perfect week in the mission!!…..Also played a little bit of spikeball with the boys!! haha
Awesome past week!! This past week was one for the books and this week has been the same! We had a leadership meeting with all the ZL´s and we were talking about the power of prayer and how we should teach our missionaries how to pray with more faith and power in order to get better results and receive eternal blessings. Therefore, this past week we put this to the test and we started to make our prayers more specific and in our prayers we listed every single thing that we were going to do and what we wanted to accomplish and who we wanted to visit and I can promise all of you that we saw the promised blessings and we were able to acheive double than what we were accomplishing before. We thought we were doing great before but we knew we could be doing double. Therefore through faith, action, and love we were able to find families and people that were specificly mentioned in our prayers and at the exact moment that we planned to meet them. Lots of incredible experiences this week and I dont see any sign of us slowing down so Im excited to keep this rythm going!!!!!
HOT HOT HOT over here in Chile!!! Awesome past week and full of good ol` contacts hahaha. Nearly everyone is on vacation so we stay on the same 3 streets all day talking with everyone and taking references so its been a blast but the only hard thing for us is the heat hahahah its making us melt hahah. We keep cool by eating popsicles and drinking Jumex but I am still stubborn and I havent been using sunblock hahah. This week we have also been celebrating birthdays and having some fun zone activities like zone services and it helps the zone unite even more which is great!! Also, we are teaching a haitian named johanna and she is a machine investigator but she doesnt speak much spanish so I have had to practice my creole with her, “Mwen pale yon ti kras nan Kreyol” hahaha and we went to teach her yesterday and she has been reading the book of mormon alone and she has grown a testimony about the restoration and Joseph Smith!!! Awesome week and I am having lots of fun!!!
