This week was kind of a trying week but it ended pretty well. We've been experiencing lots of opposition but somehow we keep finding the energy to keep working hard and keep moving on.
This week I had the opportunity to teach a lesson with a less active sister and her non member daughter and we had a pretty interesting experience. As we are new in the area, we do not exactly understand the sisters situation, but we know that she has stopped going to church for a while and that she faces a lot of problems from her family at home concerning the church. When we visited her this week we decided to teach her the message of the restoration. It was going very well and I could feel the spirit, but the daughter of this sister was making a lot of jokes and anti comments and questions to the message. Do you seriously believe that? she asked and she made many other similar comments. The sister stood up in her living room, looked at her daughter in the eyes and testified that she knew that this was the truth and that she would rather be a member of this church than in any other religion or church in the whole world. She sat down and the daughter didn't say anything else for the rest of the lesson. We finished teaching and left happy to see that sister testify and to see that somewhere in her heart she still remembers her testimony. This sister still didn't come to church this week, but it comforts me to see that we will be having progress as she continues testify.
Rio Verde is part of Tonala, Jalisco and it is very near to Guadalajara. Its a pretty big area, but I am super excited to get working here. As well as I am excited to be working with my companion, Elder Tzub.
Hope this week was a great week and that you all do great things.
