As always, my dear companion and I, Elder Hughes have been working with all our heart, mind, might, and strength to be able to find the Lord`s elect and raise the Maximo Jerez out of the little pit she is in as we speak. We had great visits with the famous Francisco! We are also preparing our 3 different families for baptism, in preparation for their visits the house of the Lord in the following year of 2018. We could not be happier! (Vincent, Manuela, Eduardo, and Martha!)
Elder Hughes and I felt inspired to contact a house in our neighborhood this week that turned out to be thee best contact of our lives. We were starving, it was hot, and the ladies house had a sign that said, ''Ade`s Kitchen. Eat and repeat.'' We thought, well we love when those two words are together so lets contact it! I learned a grand lesson of the importance of just being yourself with someone. Getting to know them, being friendly, having a personality! Anyway, on with the story. Ade came to the door, we greeted and asked about food. She let us right in haha! Turns out she had been visited by the missionaries in Bluefields, speaks English, and loves to cook lobster and gallo pinto with coconut. As we talked for a minture, she invited us to come back that night to watch the Christmas video from the church and to have dinner with her. Miracles can be found in even the richest of houses! ;)
I am grateful for the great chance I have to serve and represent the Lord Jesus Christ. Thinking of him this Christmas season and his precious life is what keeps me moving forward to find more and more people. Do the same! Change somebody`s life!
