August 26, 2014

this week we had stake conference with elder bednard and with hailstrom. it was a transmission. it is amzing that the things they talked about are the same things that president smith is teaching us. and it is a testament that they are feeling the sprit and being directed by it.

they talked alot about repentence and what it really means. its not just complying with the law but it is understanding why we are doing it and willingly doing it. also feeling bad that we didnt follow it before. 

this week we also did a open house tour thing. and we put a chalkboard outside saying mini tour. and then we talked to everyone walking by inviting them in. there is a bus stop infornt of our church. those are perfect because they cannot say that they have to go. they have to listen because they have to wait for the bus anyway. so it is super easy to talk to them and get a refence for us to go contact. or for them. 

also we have been working hard to work with members we had 15 hours. the mision goal is 12. the members help alot when they bear there testamonies. it is a great help and you all should try to do it as well

we are teaching a 8 year old that the parents are less active. and it is helping me simplify the message so that she can understand and that i can adapt that and so everyone will and can understand.

i have found me a new toy to do work outs. a box of book of mormons. its pretty heavy and works great for abbs and atomic neck i am planning on getting another one and tying rope on it and having dumbells

this week i was thinking on two thoughts one was how the spirit helps us. and how not having it hurts us in  helaman 4 24 it says 
24 And they saw that they had become weaklike unto theirbrethren, the Lamanites, and that the Spirit of the Lord did nomore preserve them; yea, it had withdrawn from them becausethe Spirit of the Lord doth not dwell in unholy temples
but they are weak becuase they dont have the spirit. it is true when we have the spirit we are so much stronger because the lord blesses us with strength and when we dont we are cursed with weakness.

my other thought was with miricles of christ and of angels. i was reading in ether and it says that the brother of jared saw christ for his faith. there are miricles happening all aroun the world everyday. we can see them. but everyone that saw angels and christ in the scriptures saw it for there faith and there worthyness. that is true. faith can break the veil.

we had a problem with adrian this last week. he was our investigater. with a bauptismal date for saturday. but he got in a fight with his wife and they seperated. and he left. so we lost him. but we are working hard with bruno to get him ready to be baptized.

yesterday was the independence day of uruguay. and it is funny a socer game is more importand and the people have for national pride. Socer Is King here.

Con Amor,
Elder Pulsipher
