This week for me was good! Monday was what I thought was a pretty awesome Pday! We wrote and then when we were done we went to a member's house and ate a big meal! One of the converts here that helps us a lot cooked rice, mashed potatoes (or rather runny mashed potatoes), and chicken. Haha, typical. It was good though and we had desert! While we were waiting for him to feed us, we watched 17 Miracles! That was awesome! The best part is that they don't yet have it translated into Spanish, just subtitles! So we got to watch it in English!! Elder Netzly and I enjoyed that! After the movie we got our hair cut and we cleaned our apartment. Tuesday was pretty sweet as well! We got to go to La Molina for the Muliti Zone Conference to say goodbye to President Ardila. It was good. I got to see Elder Lascano, haha, and Elder De Paz. Elder Lascano was hapy to see me but Elder De Paz is never happy so he wasn't happy to see me, haha. It was fun though. Also all the elders got to give Hermana Ardila a hug! That was sweet! Wednesday was good. We didn't have a ton of lessons but we did set a baptismal date with one of our new investigators! Thursday we had like 6 lessons. I'm not sure how but we did. The Lord blessed us with the people being in their homes and accepting us on Thursday for sure! Friday was good. Our zone leaders came with some guys and they installed our hot water heater for our shower! Now we have hot water to shower in! That's awesome! My companion is weird and doesn't want to shower in hot water though... he says that he will get sick because of the change of temperature...I believe that it's the other way around because I had a cold for my first week in this area...haha. Saturday was good, we had a district meeting and Elder Netzly did a good job! He is super cool to have here! Sunday was frustrating but okay. We had a cool training that we did for the visiting and home teachers. That was cool!
This morning was pretty cool! I studied a little bit about patience and the other attributes of Christ in Doctrine and Covenants and in the Book of Mormon! I was strengthened lots by that! Also I thought a lot about my testimony of tithing and wrote my experience with tithing and my testimony of tithing! As I thought about it I realized that our family has been so blessed by paying tithing. The spiritual and temporal blessings never end! I thought about how because of the tithing of mom and dad and everyone else who payed in our family, the shop was able to be built and it became a place for me to focus my energy so that I was not taken down by the temptations of the world. I was able to develop my talents so that one day I can support a family!!! Man the blessings just keep going but there are a couple that I recognized! Tithing is pretty awesome!!!
I hope that things go good this week! Love You All!!
Love Elder Jones
