So I've been thinking a lot lately about my mission delay and how even though it was the hardest thing I've had to do in my life that it actually has helped me so much. Its weird to think but I'm actually really greateful for it. As a missionary you kinda get judged a lot and people say some pretty rude stuff to you or about you and its kinda hard for me but having the experience of kinda already going through that at home it hasn't really effected me as much as it would of and I think the Lord knew that and allowed me to kinda go through that trial to better prepare me for my mission. I also really have been blessed to understand people and the struggles that they have and how the Atonement can help them.
So Gisifredo has been pretty difficult this week. We haven't seen him a lot and every time we do he is very drunk and it's been kinda hard for us. We are kinda trying to find a balance between saying we can't teach him right now he's too drunk it won't do any good and still teaching him and hoping it does some good or that he remembers some small part of it. We also tracted into a guy named Geraldo and we had a first lesson with him last Monday night and it went really well. He is from Mexico City and is really eager to learn more. I told him I lived in Mexico for 6 weeks and he asked us about the temple there and said he lived like 10 minutes from it so he lived really close to the CCM! We have another lesson with him tonight so I hope he is still eager and ready to learn more! I don't know if you remember the less active family that we live by that we visit a lot but we went over there and knocked on the door and the only one who was home was the oldest son Roberto and we talked to him and he let us come in and have a lesson with him which was really surprising so we went in and talked to him for a while and he told us he was having some problems in his life right now and that what we told him actually really helped him and that was really cool to see and be a part of.
Para Siempre Dios este con vos!
