This week has been a great week for the branch. I think a lot of the members are trying a lot harder and are more excited to help the branch! Also, this week was my last Day of the Dead in Guatemala!
Yesterday we had our first branch counsel meeting. It went really well, we assigned 5 families for the branch presidencies to visit and 10 families for the 2 companionships of missionaries in San Juan to visit. These families are less active or inactive. The members were super excited to go visit them!
On Saturday, the first counselor and the branch president called us and we went out and visited a lot of less active families. It was super helpful! We not only found part member families and families where their kids haven't been baptized yet, but we also got to know the branch president and gain his trust.
Speaking of trust. This week I have been trying super hard to earn the Lord's trust. And this week especially, I have felt the Lord working through me. Like this week we went to contact and reference, and this lady was very rude and didn't want anything. We felt kind of bad and didn't know where to go. Then this picture of a guy in a green sweatshirt in a street that was familiar to me wouldn't leave me head. Knowing which street it was, I decided to go find this guy. As we got walking down this street sure enough we found a guy in a green sweat shirt in a tienda, reading the bible. He was very nice to us and let us teach him, and he wants us to come back!
Also, as we were snacking on some tortas and visiting the less actives who make them on a street side, a huge semi-truck came driving by very slow. There was a pretty good size rock in the road, and a voice came into my head, get out of your chair, get out of your chair. Recognizing that it was the spirit, I followed it. As I got out of my chair the semi-truck's tire drove over the rock and using the weight of the truck as pressure, shot the rock like a cannon into the chair I had been sitting in. The chair completely shattered to pieces! I wasn't even surprised when I saw that happen. After we searched for the rock, and it weighed about 10 pounds!
I'm grateful to belong to the one true church that blesses us with the gift of the Holy Ghost. It helps us find God's elect and it protects us from danger! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a church of miracles!
