Wow ..... Honestly I can't even remember what we did last week! The weeks just fly by! We spent a lot of time the last few days saying goodbye to a lot of people because Elder Reinhold leaves to go home tomorrow.
All that I do remember this week is that we went with a companionship to a village in our area, called Eden. It's about a 45 minute drive all up hill! We went to a really cool little house, with flowers and animals. The man living there said that he never needs to leave because he has everything! The bad side to it, was that his dad was a pastor of a church and the other elders wanted to baptize his son, who lived in their area. He had a lot of questions, and hard ones, but we just followed the spirit and he was actually really impressed with us. NOT only did he give his son permission to be baptized, but he also wants his son to serve a mission to be able to preach the gospel. It was a really neat experience, and that's what it means when it says this in D & C 68:4 "And whatsoever they shall speak when moved upon by the Holy Ghost shall be scripture, shall be the will of the Lord, shall be the mind of the Lord, shall be the word of the Lord, shall be the voice of the Lord, and the power of God unto salvation." This is definitely one of my favorite scriptures. We have the promise and blessing that if we are obedient, the Lord will help us share the gospel! It's so simple!
Among the people living in this village, we ran into an Amish colony. It was really neat to see other gringos. They even have a bakery and they sell amazing cookies and donuts. I keep seeing them, so I always try to talk to them. Maybe one day they will invite me to their farm, and teach me how to make their cookies!!!
Other than that, I go tomorrow to Xela to pick up my new companion! Wish me luck! Love you guys!
