Summarzing a week is a very difficult skill that I have yet to obtain, so forgive me! This week was soo very great! The Tender Mercies of Our Heavenly Father were so very present. I have continued to be stunned by his Goodness and his help daily! He is such a very perfect Father.
This past week Elder Bond, Myself and President Marler went on a road trip to Chota (A small city about 4 hours North of Cajamarca) So we drove up there it was about an 7 hour drive in total, we made a few stops on the way and had some great expierences. It was a really great trip up to chota. I learned many things about Elder Bond and President Marler, theyre two of my Heros. I am so very greatful for the both of them. They taught me many things during the jounrey, we talked about one another and just had the chance to get to know each other a little more. We talked about Mercy, Charity, Marriage(President was getting ready to give a training on it-we took advantage and learned soo much) we Talked about the spirit and about Hope. The Branch we visited in Chota all needed a little more Hope, You could see it in there eyes of all that lived in the City and also the few members that attend the small church. Christ is that beakon of Hope to all, and that was an eternal principle I learned this past week. we also sang efy songs all the way up the mountains! soo fun! President is a professional singer..ligit!
We returned from our trip and had lots of incredible expierences with many missionaries and with the Work of the Lord. I had the chance to get to know our area a little bit more. We met a huge family that all lives together in the same house/apartement. Theres about 43 people that live there, anyways we taught about 20 of them. It was a wonderful lesson. Elder Bond is the master of teaching little children but capturing the attention of the parents. We also had the chance to meet a family of 4 that needs lots of help, they have listened to the missionaries in the past, but for some reason lost contact, anyways we are very excited to teach them and help them feel the Love of there Heavenly Father and to see the Hope seep into there eyes.
Funny Moment. We cleaned up the beach as a service project activity today. Anways it was great I had the chance to see lots of people from my first area, they are the best! But we office elders decided to go out to lunch, right next to the beach, but the problem was there was 4 places to eat and they alll wanted us to eat there. Soo they all tried to get us 6 into there place to eat. It was hilarious. You might of just had to been there. The place we ate at was great!
I learned this past week that our desires change the way we use our agency. All righteous desires come from the spirit and help us, literal help from our Father to choose the Right. I am so very greatful for the spirit and the way he Guides us all back to our father!
Love you all
