Up Down Week

Exodus 31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed

The Hermanas helped us move our stuff

This week I wanted to share a scripture in the Bible about the Sabbath Day. It is essential for our well being and spirituality during the week. This is the day dedicated to the Lord when we can learn of the scriptures and of the Gospel, grow spiritually, feel the Spirit, and participate the Sacrament. I thought it was interesting that those in the times of Moses were put to death if they did not keep the Sabbath, we should delight in this special day. I know it is important because our loving Heavenly Father wants us to rest and learn of His will.Hey Everyone!

Finally moved in!
This was a pretty up-down week, the mission is like a roller coaster, lots of emotions. The owner of the apartment called us and said that it was now available and so the next day we took the morning to move our things to the new house. The new house is very long, our old house was 2 floors. It has lots of space and it is close to the bank, the stores, the church building, and so that's why we wanted to move to this place, and considering that we now live in our area haha. The sister missionaries helped us move.
Our investigator paints with spraypaint
We had a few difficulties with our investigators this week. With each one of them we tried to put a baptismal date. Soraya tells us that we should not speak of baptismal dates, because she says that she will know when she should, and we do not have to set a specific date with her. José, our investigator who can not walk, was enthusiastic to be baptized and we invited him to ask the Lord to know what day he should be baptized, then his family spoke to him and he lost the desire to pray and listen to us because of the things his family told him. 
Hermana Guzman is so nice to us
Mauro, he only wants to know about the history of the church and not about faith and repentance and these things because he already knows about the other churches. On the plus side, we found several new investigators this week and so we are working well and being very patient!

Elder Sanchez is always tired
This week I could see the hand of the Savior in some contacts in the street we had. We were able to find and meet people that truly need the healing power of Jesus Christ in their lives and it was a blessing to see that the people who need the Gospel are placed in our paths so we can teach and testify of Christ. I know that He lives and loves each one of His children.
