Well this last week was fantastic!!! Were still working with Jimmy, and he is progressing just he works in the airport and its hard for him to get a Sunday off. But he knows he wants to be baptised and has his testimony so we just have to wait until he can come to church. As of right now hes our only rock solid investigators...we have quite a few other but theyre not keeping with a lot of the committments so we are looking for new investigators! This Friday we are going to have our Group San Cristobal Christmas activity. Were going to cook arroz con pollo and have juice and toys for the little kids and bags of candy so its going to be a great experience for the church here.
As far as the weather...is has started to heat up. January is when it is supposed to get hot..and in Guayaquil its when the rainy season starts. So since the government only lets us stay out here for 60 days...my 60 days ends January 4th so Ill only be out here for maybe 2 more weeks. It would be great to be able to stay longer so we will have to see what happens.
In other news...I got a copy of my Priesthood line of authority to be able to share with the people here. Its honestly great being in an area where the church is so new!
As far as the skype I am going to be calling at 4pm San Cristobal time. So 2pm your time. I hope thats already so you can open presents and eat and then ill be ready to talk to you guys! But keep your skype open the whole time you guys are home so its up and ready when im on.
So these last few weeks I have been studying the New Testament and am in Hebrews chapter 5
8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
I love these two verses. They talk about Christ and the importance of our obedience to Him and Heavenly Father. He is the author of our eternal salvation ONLY if we are obedient. Its honestly something so important I have learned here in the mission. Obedience to Christ and His gospel should always be first in our lives. I know the Lord blesses us as we are faithful and serve others.
Anyways thats all the time ive got but ill talk to you guys soon!! And i couldnt send any pictures so ill try again next week! Love you all! Merry Christmas!!!🎅
