1 Nephi 4:6

Email written: 10/10/16

Coming down from the awesomeness of General Conference, we got back to work here in Urquiza; well the first 2 days my companion (and one of the elders in the other area too. Because now we share an apartment with the elders who opened a new area) was sick and we couldn't do much. But the good news is I was able to guide us through the area and also show the new elders part of their area without too many problems. The other good news is Elder Aguilar came here to work and we are trying a lot of different ways to work. Some days we are able to give out a lot of copies of the Book of Mormon and other days we just end up walking around but we put in a good week of work.

Something interesting was that these past few days we were guided very strongly by the Spirit. One day everything failed on us and instead of stressing, I felt we had to visit 2 certain members, and both of them live alone, and both of them needed blessings, and both of them told us they were praying that we would visit them! Then the next day we had to change some of our plans and we were with a member and he wanted to visit a less active family and when we went by their house, no one was home. So we continued walking and a few blocks later we ran into the family and we walked back with them and they let us in (after 2 months of trying) and we had a really good lesson and the member who was with us gave his first ever blessing and it was such a cool experience to see him learn more about the Priesthood.

and now everyone knows the difference between Chile and Texas.
