Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.

August 11, 2014

First week has been great for us over here. We have seen some very cool miracles. But to start my companions name is Elder Farr from Venezuela. well he lives in Columbus Ohio. But his mom is from there and he live there till he was 3. So he just says that. He does already speaks some Spanish, not fluently. But it is really cool to have a comp that speaks. Because all the other times i was with people who spoke Spanish. Either i could not speak, they could not speak or i was in a trio. So its so nice to be with someone who can speak. Because now we can teach effectively and actively switch off cause we know what the other person is saying. So its really cool, I love it. 

This week also we had the most awesome meeting. So all the leadership from the mission came together for two days and we had some really awesome experiences. So we as a leadership in this Zone. So at the end of the two days we had to choose something our zone was going to focus on to do. Everyone basically had the same thing "love and unity" freaken lame. our focus is so much cooler. We decided that many of the missionarys needed something else. So our focus is "rising up to the occasion." Because allot the missionarys are just not doing it because its "hard" or there "Going home soon" so we really are going to focus on helping them through more effective exchanges and compstudy's. We are all really excited to do this. It really set a great tone for the week. 

Then finally as a closer i want to share what happened on that exchange. So last Tuesday i was looking at the map trying to find a place to tract. and i kept getting lead back to this road named "Simon park cir" But when i wrote it down i wrote "Simion park cir" so when i went to put it in the GPS it found nothing. So i just let it go* and knocked somewhere else. then the next night the sisters called with a referral family on which street? yep, Simon park cir. So on that exchange we went there and they let us in and i was able to teach lesson 1. The elder i was with was an English elder. So i did not feel bad talking the whole time. But anyway in the end we got 4 new investigators, 2 kids were not there. and we are going back this week. So then we will get two more when we go there this week. It is really cool how the lord will still get the missionarys where they need to go even if they spell things wrong. 

Con Mucho Amor
