And the Father said: Repent ye, repent ye, and be baptized in the name of my Beloved Son." - 2 ne. 31:10-11
I was just reading this verse this morning and just truly enjoying the simplicity of the scriptures. They're so logical, and I'm going to be sharing this with some investigators here, that we just need to be active in our faith, keep the commandments, be baptized and stay firm to truly follow Christ. Just some thoughts of mine!
This week was truly gold however, it was definitely an up on the rollercoaster of the mission in contra to being on the down slope for awhile with the work going. We found a new additional cast member of the show The Jersey Shore (with reference to his hair), hahaha, and he is one of the best investigators. I wish I had a picture, but you'll have to imagine him. He's 20, named Miguel, and is a taxista who is saving up to go learn english and work for a cruiseship and travel the world. He has high interests in getting baptized, and reading the book of mormon, it's just hard for him to find time. We're going to be taking him to the temple open house right here after internet and indulge in the spirit with him for a time, and it is an experience we've been waiting for for awhile. I'll let you guys know how that goes!
Speaking of the temple, wow, as a missionary, it's just like an automatic spirit factory that we just take whoever in and they will definitely, no definitely feel the spirit. We've gone twice now, with some of our converts and their friends, and they are now taking the lessons from us with high interest and having felt the spirit in abundance. Having a temple in the mission is just sublime. It feels like cheating haha.
I hope the week is great, take some time to maybe go to the temple and just sit there and contemplate. It's a wonderful thing our Father has given us, and a great place to make goals to become a better person and covenant keeper. Much love from your boy down here in Peru!
