You can choose to share what happened yesterday with everyone:
There was a missionary that was going home and he needed to be at the airport at 6am. So me with the other office guys we left to go take him a 4:30 and to leave at 4:30 we had to wake up at 3:30. The night before we got to bed at like 12ish because we did a dinner and stuff with the misionary that was leaving(he was the assistant). So we didn't get a lot of sleep haha. We went and dropped him off and there were some complications with that, but we raced back to get to the zone conference at 9. We got there literally at 8:59 and walked in when they started the first hymn. Then we had that all day and right after instead of getting some stuff done in the office we had some appointments so we headed over there and taught. We went to bed like normal at 11 so we were all pretty wrecked. President gave us permission to sleep in to 9 this morning so I feel like a million bucks. I should sleep in every day, haha just kidding. But it was a pretty hectic day yesterday. It's going to be a busy week too.
Yesterday we had a family home evening with the Cortes Family and apparently they know David too from a ward they were in in Santiago. They said I'm funnier but they still liked him. They're going to help us find some more people to teach, they are a really cool family.
This week we found a guy named Luis. Or maybe Igor. We were walking down the street and my companion was like we need to knock the door. We knocked on the door and it was the easiest contact ever. The guy looks at us and he's like "You guys are out this late? Come on in!" It was pretty sweet and we went in and talked to him for a bit and me his wife and son, Benjamin. His wife didn't participate in the lesson, but while we were talking Benjamin(he's 10) brought us juice and cake from his birthday party. He was a super cute kid haha. We talked to Luis a lot about eternal families. It went really well and he invited us to go back.
Tell Dustin not to plan out the end of his mission before he starts haha. But it would be cool if everyone was out there before he leaves.
This week I read a story in the Book of Mormon that I always like. It's about Alma the elder when he recently started preaching and teaching people. It's in Mosiah 23-25ish and you should definitely read it. But one of the scriptures in there Mosiah 23:21-22 says "Nevertheless the Lord seeth fit to chasten his people; yea, he trieth their patience and their faith. Nevertheless—whosoever putteth his trust in him the same shall be lifted up at the last day. Yea, and thus it was with this people." This was a group of people that was recently converted and baptized, they were keeping all of the commandments and doing everything right. But with all that there was a reason they had to pass through more trials. Sometimes in our lives we're doing everything right, but for some reason there are a lot of challenges. That's becuase God is preparing us for the future. He gives us chances to grow and increase our faith. At the end (without spoiling the story) the people of Alma were able to bear all the burdens that were put upon them with patience and joy. It all depends on our attitude and if we are willing to put more confidence in God than in ourselves.
Hey I love you guys a lot!! Have a good week!
