Sharing the Gospel one person at a Time

10 December 2012

Letter to All:

Hello!  We were planning on a baptism for this week and a marriage but they don´t have enough money right now so they postponed it until he gets his paycheck.  Hopefully it comes in time to do it this week.  It´s been a little bit of a difficult week, a lot of appointments have been falling through, people not coming to church and dropping more investigators.  We have to keep looking for new people to teach.  But we´ll find those people god has prepared for us.  

We were teaching a young man named Ivan about the gospel of Jesus Christ and in the middle of the lesson the Spirit just testified and I felt it very strong and my companion looked at me and smiled.  We planned a baptismal date with him for the 29th.  Later we talked to an investigator José and we told him basically that we cannot waste our time with him if he isn´t willing to make changes and come to church as he was drinking beer in front of us.  I wasn´t very happy and he wants us to keep visiting him but I told him our time as missionaries is too important.  I don´t like dropping investigators but it has to be done.

The pictures are of a part of our area called Cuajacillo, there are a lot of trees and farm animals over there.

Have a great week everyone!  Read 2 Nephi 4

Elder Willden

Wherefore, redemption in and through the Holy Messiah; he is full of grace and truth.
8 “Wherefore, how great the importance to make these things known unto the inhabitants of the earth, that they may know that there is no flesh that can dwell in the presence of God, save it be through the merits, and mercy, and grace of the Holy Messiah, who layeth down his life according to the flesh, and taketh it again by the power of the Spirit, that he may bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, being the first that should rise.”

 9 “Wherefore, he is the firstfruits unto God, inasmuch as he shall make intercession for all the children of men; and they that believe in him shall be saved.”   2 Nephi 4
