This was a pretty crazy week.
The work this week was amazing! we had a really weird week, we were in Xalapa until Tuesday late we got back to our house, Wednesday quite a few missionaries were sent home for a problem that was kinda crazy in the mish so I spent most of my day with my comp figuring out companions and buses and moving stuff from one area to another and changing houses, we worked about an hour in our area Wednesday, Thursday we had a few ward meetings and again a few problems we had to work out in the zone with some changes and we worked very little only about 4 hours, Thursday we did divisions so I worked with elder Gamboa and WOW we taught some good lessons, found some great people to teach including a miracle that is going to get baptized this Sunday hopefully! Thursday night the Bishop was like "hey elders come to a family home evening at brother Lucios house we are waiting for you!" we ran over and met Cornelio and Adriana. They were like Hi we want you to teach us so we said OK! we taught a little but it was late so we went back Friday night with them and they accepted a baptismal date for the 29th of November and came to church yesterday and liked it a lot! it was super good.
OH The coolest thing happened also! so we have been teaching this guy named Alberto, he is 19 and his sister is a member. We found him when we went to reactivate his sister and we found out while we were getting to know him that he had read the BOM all the way to 2nd Nephi so we were like DANG! that was like 2 weeks ago, anyway Thursday we went and visited him (we weren't even going to but he saw us in the street and was like hey come over) and we talked for a few minutes but he and Elder Gamboa (the guy I was in divisions with) were talking about anime and I was like idk what the fetch they are talking about for like 15 minutes so finally I was like OK well, we gotta run right now but, go read 2nd Nephi 31 and watch the because he lives video, we will come back tomorrow to talk about it. SO FRIDAY, we come back and he says hey guys hows it going?...I had a dream last night. We were like uhh....what was it about
¨In my dream, I WAS DRESSED IN ALL WHITE, in a big WHITE room with a big WHITE DOOR at the end of a LONG NARROW PASSAGE, at the door, draper was standing there barefoot in white with Hernandez also in white (my companion who he had never met before that lesson) I really recognized draper because he kept telling me TO GO THROUGH THE DOOR so I did and right as I passed through the door I woke up.
So we were like what do you think it means? and his response was GOLDEN, he goes
Well, baptism is the door that enters in the straight and narrow path....you guys have invited me to be baptized....I think I am ready to be baptized.
That was super awesome.
This week the church also announced some policy outlines in the local leadership handbook of the church. I don't want to explain it or say anything other than this; As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints we are to uphold and sustain our leaders. Any member that affiliates him/herself with comments, groups, or literature that goes against the standards of the church is not worthy of a temple recommend. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the Lords Prophet and that the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are Prophets, Seers, and Revelators and speak in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have a great week, if you have questions, ask God
