Eternal things

March 14, 2016

Hey guys!!! This week has been good!! 

Yesterday we confirmed Carina (the woman who got baptized last week). It went well!!! She  almost didn't show up because her baby couldn't sleep or something!! But she finally arrived 5 mins late to sacrament meeting, right before she had to be confirmed! I was a little nervous, but everything went good! She got confirmed and is very happy right now! We talked with her inactive husband and we layed everything out to him. He smokes and does not come to church. With love we told him that if he didn't do those things he would not live with his wife and child for ever. He said that I was too hard. We kept talking and we told him straight up if he didn't try and do these important things for his family,mhe would be a coward, but if he tried he could live with his family forever. He got pretty mad! But now I can say that We really did everything that we could to help him come to church! He didn't come on Sunday to see his wife get confirmed which was too bad! We said it with love obviously but Nephi says that sometimes the guilty feel it because it goes right to the heart!!

This week we have done a couple divisions and they have been good! Sometimes it's tough cause I don't really know my area that well to start with. If an appointment cancels or is not home, we just need to contact and talk to people. That's great, but sometimes it gets tiring ! It is not always efficient either. The missionaries that come and do splits with us always eat all of our food as well! But I guess that's just how it goes...
This week we went to a family's house for lunch. They are a super awesome family, and fed us some super awesome food!! Anyways, they have a 14 year old son, who is super cool! I really like him! They have just recently reactivated, about 3 months ago. Before they had been reactivated, this fourteen year old boy loved to play League of Legends. I have never played it, but it looks cool... if you dont waste all your time on it. Anyways, this 14 year old kid was addicted to it!!! He said he would spend between 15-18 hours a day playing this game. He would wake up at 4 in the morning so that he could play it and nobody could bother him. He was addicted and couldn't stop thinking or playing it. He decided when he came back to church, to give it up. Now he is going to receive the priestood and is reading his scriptures and everything! Pretty awesome! It just made me really think about the things that help us learn and progress and the things that don't. Him playing that game isnt a bad thing if he only plays 1 hour or 2 a day, but when you devote all your time to that, it's awful. He was doing nothing with his life. The things that will help us for eternity sometimes are hard to do, but they are things that will be usefull. It was cool to see the change in him! They also gave us donuts afterwards so that was pretty awesome as well!!

I am doing good! We are working hard!!!
Love you guys!!!
