First off, Addison congrats dude! What the heck- Russian! You can join the KGB now! And Ashlee, are you trunked out of you mind? 3 weeks left! How do you feel?
This week has been good! We have a multi mission conference tuesday with the other mission, and Elder Oakes came to talk to us! It was super good- Elder Oakes is usually pretty serious in General Conference, but with all the missionaries he was pretty loose! He had a lot of Jokes! Hahaha anyway, we all got to shake his hand, and listen to him. He talked about the work as missionaries, and how sometimes we have the tendency to set goals of how many people will be baptized in the month. But we can`t do that, because we`re messing with their agency.It`s so true! I`ve seen a lot of missionaries try and do that, but it doesn`t work- it`s against the plan of salvation! we all have agency! So, our job as missionaries (and members) literally is to invite, and nothing more. If we invite, the choice is then our friend`s. It was really good!
We keep working with Exequial- He such a stud! He enrolled himself in Seminary and is working on serving a mission! He`s getting baptize the 9 of May! Rudy, he is lot like you- SUPER ready and super excited to follow Christ! We`re also working with Federico and Marcela, a couple with 3 kids. Federico is FLYING, and really want to be baptized. We`re still working with Marcela, but they are going to get married! ¡Vamos arriba! We`re super excited!
I hope you guys have an awesome week! The church is true!
