This last week was a slower week for us. But the weekend was really awesome!! so on Saturday we had Elder Cook come talk to us. He talked allot about that the mission we are in in the mission where the lord wants us to be. He explained a little on how they choose the mission in where you are to serve. He let us know that they really listen to the spirit to make sure they have it correct. He also shared a story about how somebody does not need to be poor or hungry or anything like that to be ready to revive the Gospel. ( I actually have a cool story i will tell about that in just a moment) But he told a story how this family was very well off and had no problems of any kind, but they were still ready and willing to accept the restored gospel. This family was Pentecostal and when the members of the Pentecostal church found out they gave them a TON of anti stuff. So the missonary's took Elder cook with them. And Elder cook said the missonary's told him that the were sure everyone in the family except the father had a testimony. But Elder Cook shared how when they were saying the opening prayer he received an impression from the holy ghost that told him that the father already knew the church was true. So after the prayer he asked the father if he believed that the church was true. The father answered yes. Even with all the Anti stuff and not being made humble by poverty or anything they were willing and ready to accept the gospel. So we cant ever rule anyone out because of how much money they might have or how they may appear. We never know till we try if they are ready to receive this message.So the experience i want to share that is kinda like that is this. So first ill give some back ground. So last week we received a call from this lady in a English ward in our area asking us if we would go and visit some of their recent converts. When we asked why she said, Cause the parents don't understand English very well and we want y'all to teach them the lessons over again in Spanish for them. ( why we were not called over there to teach them before baptism we still don't know why, but what ever) so anyway we agreed and then she told us that they are from Spain. So we were like crap, cause over there they speak in tu form and in vosotros, two forms we don't really ever use. So we made sure to quickly learn those two forms. But when we went to there house right off the bat you could see that they were very well off. so we went in and talked with them and became quick friends, but the best part was when we started teaching, you could see the desire they have to learn and feed on every word of the gospel. Especially the wife. She keep asking questions cause she wanted to understand and learn, it was so awesome. The best part was though that i finally felt at home with Spanish. their accent was very different but it clicked so quickly and i understood it all. I had such a fiery desire to speak Spanish. And even one point i was able to answer a question she had because i was able to understand even when my to companions who have more time in the mission could not understand. I was such a gift from god, and now i feel just at home with Spanish and don't want to shut up!! Learning Spanish has been a very humbling experience but one i will be eternally grateful for.Also this weekend the two girls we lost last week, the older one came to church yesterday and then later last night texted us telling us that her mom said we can teach them again, so we are going to plan on putting them back on date for the 29th.Thank you for the emails and the things i get to learn from you about the stuff that you taught at church, they always help me learn something i will need for the week.Con Mucoh AmorElder LambP.s. he is a picture of me and my trainer and the others he has trained, and elder henson. i know its blurry but i did not take it.
