Tuesday we worked our tails off to find and teach those families! The elect family that came to church last week was stunned shut by the power of the Holy Ghost as we taught the Restoration for the first time. They loved it and are now reading the BOM each night as a family. Thee sweetest sight!
Wednesday was Spring Break as we headed down to Managua for our 'capactiation' of the new missionaries!
Thursday I headed out on divisions to El Naranjo with Elder Silva from Brazil to do some baptismal interviews with the troops! They were spiritual and funny, and each person passed with ease. It ´twas a great day to be alive on the Lord´s errand. ( I sure did miss doing those interviews!)
Sunday was a humbling one for us. A lady in our ward named Esperanza has been having some serious medical issues (an untreated hernia the size of an arm. She had no shame in showing me haha!). She pleaded that we would go to her house after church and give her a blessing. Elder Nonu and I went, read from the Scriptures, pumped her faith up, and a blessing was given. Later, she asked for the Sacrament as she was not able to attend the meeting that day. We broke the bread, poured the water, knelt, and the Spirit took over from there. We felt a little like the Savior did all those years ago when he gave the first Sacrament to his apostles. It was a holy moment for my Tongan homie and I! After, Bishop Romero took it to us and said that we had to step up our game. He only excepts excellence from us (Which is super cool!) He pumped our faith up, told us to leave his house and to find a family based on the Spirit´s guidings and report back to him how it went. We found a family of 12 that all accepted dates for March. The faith of one Bishop can move mountains...
The journey continues. This work is divine. Keep on Keepin' on friends and family. I love you all!
