Today it rained again, really hard a few times, and from around lunchtime and onward, so we were out and about with our trusty umbrellas, once again there was hardly anyone outside. But we still had some good lessons, and definitely walked around a lot. We also had a "Noche de Hermanamiento", or Fellowshipping Night or something like that in English, basically it was an activity for members and investigators, and it turned out pretty well. We watched the video about John Tanner about the Law of Consecration, and talked about that for a bit, and then we played "Ama su projimo?", or "Do You Love Your Neighbor?", which is when you're all in a circle with chairs, and the person in the middle asks someone "Ama su projimo?" and if the person says yes, then they give a characteristic (has black shoes, wears earrings, has long hair, wears pants, etc.) and if someone in the circle has that thing, they have to switch seats, and the person left out continues; if the person says no, everyone has to change seats. Turned out very fun, everyone was laughing and running around all crazy... good times. But it was also awesome because Sara and Carlos came! Both investigators, and we've been trying to help Carlos come to the church almost the whole time I've been here, and we finally found him and brought him! Whoohoo! Now we gotta try and get him over there on a Sunday, but we're making baby steps! And Sara's awesome, pretty much happy to go wherever we are and came to all the meetings last Sunday, so that's wonderful as well. Overall, everyone had a good time.
Good teaching from personal study from Bishop Gerald Causse:
"When we have the Spirit with us, our spiritual senses are sharpened and our memory is kindled so we cannot forget the miracles and signs we have witnessed." What a blessing it is to have the Holy Ghost in our lives!
