This week was so great! Our investigator Cinthia is giong to get baptized on Saturday. When we taught her the Word of Wisdom she gave all of her tea to a friend and told us that she's already dropped it! What a beast! This week she invited two of her friends to listen to us and we taught them the Restoration. She already shares the Gospel more than the members here. She's awesome!
But luckily the members are changing a ton. The Area of Southern America South had a transmission this Sunday for the whole area. They talked about missionry work a ton and said that the members should be the primary source of finding new investigators for the missionaries. After that we had the Branch Council Meeting and the members all realized that they hadn't been fulfilling their duties as leaders in the church of Jesus Christ and they all were pumped up the help us out. They committed to go visit all the recent converts and to visit our investigator Cinthia. It was awesome. Our prayers are being answered and this branch is changing with all our hard work!
I have been studying a ton about faith and how I can build it and help others do the same. I have learned something that I have already known for a long time...that faith is constant action. It's living with righteousness always. When we have the faith to keep the commandments that God has given us and live righteously, our faith increases. We are able to receive blessings from our righteous living and then our testimony and faith grows even stronger. I have learned about the importance of helping investigators understand that they have to ACT and start making small CHANGES or their faith will never increase. The whole mish I have been trying to convince these people, but when I help them to ACT and make little changes in their lives(repentence), they convince themselves because of the blessings they receive. Thats my little spiritual thought for this week. I invite all to ACT!
Love you and miss you all! Till next week
