11 November 2015 - Every Day Is Full Of Blessings: Remember That








What a fantastic week! We went full charged batteries on our area and it's been great. This week we weren't able to teach a ton but we contacted tons and already have a good half of this week filled with appointments. My companion and I have been making plans to try to contact more. One of these things is any time we get on a bus (which is almost daily) we contact every person on there. Basically one of us stands in front and talks to everyone there. Then we talk in person to everyone there. It's a little hard at first but every time gets easier haha. There's a word here "fierro" which means iron but in context is very motivational. Like here's an applied example. 

Hey its your turn to speak to the bus you ready? 
Fierro! 
fierro!
FIERRO!
And then we get on the bus and it's great.

Early in the week every appointment we had fell through and the backup plan too and we were kinda at a loss of what to do we started walking and suddenly a kid calls out 
"Hey wanna join and play"
"What are you playing"
"Freeze tag"
"Fierro"

So we play freeze tag for 20 min or so and talk to all the kids there and it was chill. They asked us to come back the next day so we did. We stopped by gathered the group taught a short lesson, set up appointments with all of their respective families and played freeze tag again. It was rather fantastic. I truly hope that this Tuesday we will be able to teach all of their families. 

The Gonzalez are doing great. We have been teaching them a lot and they are progressing a lot and blessings are just flowing from that home. One of their kids who had been inactive for many years has started listening to us when we come by and came to church last week. A friend of their son has been over a lot while we teach but has been a little distant you could say while we teach, but recently he has been paying more and more attention and even asks questions. I've loved being able to work with them.
This week was just full of amazing.

Here are the explanations for the pictures above

1. we bought una waflera for 50 pesos and its the best purchase ever. Other great functions include making quesadillas and toasting bread
2. Every hill comes with a view that makes you feel on top of the world
3. This place is just pretty
4. The Mercado family, just one of the coolest families here


I love you all and hope you have the best weeks of your lives. Never forget all the love that is sent your way. More than anything, never forget that we are children of God. Omnipotent, Omniscient, All-mightly, Loving, Caring, Perfect. we can be like Him. Never stop pressing forward in that goal. Till next week!
Love,
Elder Smith
