What a fun Halloween weekend! We had an activity Friday and District conference on Saturday and Sunday. It was a pretty good turnout. Like at home, there has been a lot of instruction about Sabbath Day worship. It was so great. We had three people in the church with dates for baptism.
We also went trick or treating! Well, not on purpose. We had 10 min left until we could enter the house so we decided- to knock a few doors. We were all greeted with 'no thank you' but given a hand full of candy anyways. I am not sure if that shows we are dedicated or disobedient--- I'll let you decide
It has been hard to communicate with people this week because our phone ran out of minutes! It was a travesty. It is literally our life - with setting up appointments, verifying members etc. It was a struggle, but it made us think in some creative ways... Thankfully we have more for this week.
We used our bikes this week! Well... for two days until my comp's broke... but it was fun while it lasted and we hope to get them fixed today. They help so much in this huge sector. When we don't have them we have to spend money on the bus to get around.
Hermana Ovando and I have been learning to teach together. It has been interesting finding a balance. I have been studying in the New Testament the teachings of Christ (because he is the best example we have right :) and something that has stuck out to me is how simple He teaches. With questions and parables- He teaches people not just lessons.
The gospel really is not that complicated. The scriptures are so clear. It is Satan who is the master of confusion that would have us believe that the gospel is hard to understand, hard to learn and hard to live.
If I could just remind you of one thing this week- remember to delight in the scriptures. They hold the teachings of our brother, Jesus Christ. Don't make it more complicated than it needs to be.
Ready, meditate and delight in following their council. I love you all so much. You are always in my prayers
