This has been a great week it sure went by fast. Our bikes keep on breaking, so we are going to fix them for the last time today then turn them in. Haha, That just means that we will be walking more. We've actually been walking a lot the past month pala. It does make it easier to find people when there is none bikes. what looks like only a few houses can turn into an compound, and usually someone is interested. There are a lot of people hear that say, when we are finding, "Bawal sa amin, kasi catholico kami" or ganoon. So I ask them, why is it bawal? Then they get stumped, and then say, next time na lang. It makes it hard when people don't really know what they believe, so they get defensive. We, Elder Navarro and I, usually just leave because walang Spirit. Cool story, we found this guy who spends most of his time in San Fernando, he is being taught by the other Elders in the apartment of Elder Smith! He is super cool, super ready to accept. We haven't gone back to them yet but this week we should be able teach them again sana. Also, we met this old guy a long time ago. The first or second time we taught him, we asked him what will happen after our death, he said basically, nothing, tapos na. That made me really sad, and I think i told him that too, cuz he also said that Jesus, who is God, died on the Cross. I dont think he understands the Bible quite yet but we will work with him. Anyway, I mention him because last night we taught him and his granddaughter I think, about prayer, and he was ask about how could Dios hear all of us.So he went from believing in nothing, to believing that God is real. It's a small step, but an important one. I'm finding that the best joy comes from seeing people progress in their belief about our loving father in Heaven, and helping them realize the importance of knowing about Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. This is the testimony that all of should share to everybody, that our Eternal Father in Heaven, and His Son, Jesus Christ live, and we have the opportunity to live with them again, if we are obedient and endure to the end. This is my testimony to you, that they love us, and they are real. we can make it. They know our trails better than we do. Trust them that they know what they are doing. One day, we will understand too. I hope you all have a great week.
