This last week, we had a special church service. They called it super Domingo and the members invited a bunch of friends, and there were special talks and the missionaries had to give a special musical number. We planned to sing a melody of Sisters of Zion and Armies of Helaman with the piano and make it all pretty, but it was a complete disaster. The Hermanas didn´t practice and they sang really quiet, so Elder Anguita and I had to make up the slack and we sang our dang hearts out. On the last note, I was the only one that caught the cue to come in, so I sang a good ten second solo. It was hilarious.
The teaching right now is hard. We are in a really strong ward, but when they split the sector, the Hermanas, got the sector with all the ward members and we got the hard part with all of the houses and the ghetto little apartment buildings. All of the people that the missionaries taught before live in the other sector and now are with the hermana´s. Elder Anguita and I have been contacting, contacting, contacting, and contacting some more. The people we have contacted aren´t progressing very fast, but we are always looking for more. Three of the recent converts went to the temple for the first time to do baptisms for family names so that was really special. Romaldo and Maria Eugenia are going to be sealed this September and I am really excited for them!
This past Monday, the zone leaders gave a really good class during our zone meeting and I wanted to share a bit of it with you all. A lot of times we look at other people and we think that they are more lucky, or that they were born ready, or that they are rich, or have had blessings that we have not been able to have, and for that reason they are better. We blame our failures on other people and things. The thing is, WE ALL CAME TO THIS EARTH WITH THE SAME POTENTIAL. We all have the potential to become Gods of our own worlds and have all the things in this world we could ever want. All of it depends on our diligence. If we want something, we can have it, we just need to be diligent and put ourselves to work. So, if there is something you want, you can have it! Don´t waste time! Don´t procrastinate! Do the necessary things to achieve it! You got this!
I love all of you guys a whole lot!
Don´t do drugs and be safe!
