Alma 34:32 For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet
God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform
We preach repentence unto all these people each and every day, and it makes me so sad whenever the people we teach are not humble enough to recieve a message from God. They do not understand that this is the time to repent. We need to understand Gods will more, and we need to repent each and every day or else we are not using Christs atonement for us. If we dont repent, we will have to take upon ourselves the sins we have commited. Would it not be easier to use the atonement. We need to trust in God more, for he is someone that we can whole-heartedly trust!
testimony of his word, that he cannot walk in crooked paths;
neither doth he vary from that which he hath said; neither hath he
a shadow of turning from the right to the left, or from that which is
right to that which is wrong; therefore, his course is one eternal
God is trustable. Believe. Trust. Repent.
Thats my words for this week, because there are too many prideful people in this world, and ignorance is not bliss.
We had an amazing week and we are seeing many people change their lives. We are so excited and love these people. I went on divisones for 2 days last week. One with Elder Lazerson who has really helped me become a better missionary! We got a little sad as we finished our day and realized how much we love these chilean people. Its so great to just run and hug a guy you dont even know. We have so much fun flipping peoples hats backwords, putting on taxi drivers seat belts, tickling old men, giving people ties, and talking on peoples little microphones that sell stuff in the street. I fear no men. I only fear God. So we have been practicing fearing no one, because the answer will always be no if we dont ask!
A member came up to us at church and ask me if we have been giving out ties because one of his friends got a tie from some missionaries. I smiled and sayed Yes.
I also traded ties with a Jehovas Witness. We came to a happy agreement that we need to prepare ourselves for Christs second coming, and we exchanged ties. Missionary work!
We have also been having alot of fun making people do good things in the street. Like making one man we contact hug another man in the street and say "Te qiuero" haha. We have been trying lots of multiple contacts where we have people contact themselves and we just host the event. For example: We contact someone at their gate, they come out and want nothing to do with us. We make them laugh by trying to hug them or tickle them or something, and then they say no, so we make a guy walking buy give them a hug. Or we make youth talk to grandmas about youthful problems and the grandmas give advice. Its so fun!
We also ended up having a bbq with someone we contacted. We planned out the lunch and came and barbicued meat! His name is papi lucho! haha
We are having a blast being creators of our own circumstances (:
