I feel happy. :) This week was really, really good.
I've just loved seeing the hand of the Lord in working with these two families, and all the other investigators also. It's just so cool, seeing how the Lord's timing is just perfect, how the Spirit really tells us which houses to talk to, what to say, where to go. We've been super, super blessed with incredible investigators, who are so willing to change their lives and do things that will help them come closer to Christ.
Also, this week I was thinking a little bit about remembering. Jose now has more than 2 months of being baptized, and we were talking to him. He was saying how the other day, he had gotten mad at someone..someone he'd had a problem with for a long time. He said that normally he would have said some really mean things, maybe even physically fought wit him...but this time, he remembered his baptism. He said, 'I remembered how I felt while I was preparing for my baptism, and that I had the goal of getting baptized, so I avoided all the bad things. And I remembered all that, and my baptism...and decided to walk away, avoid saying or doing anything mean to this guy.' I just loved seeing how he remembered his baptismal covenants. When we were baptized, we covenanted to be a witness of God at all times, and in all things, and in all places. And every week, as we take the Sacrament, we promise that we will always remember Him. Jose was a super good example to me, in showing that when we make covenants with God, they should really change us. We should be different people after the covenants, than who we were before.As we make decisions every day, we should remember those covenants. I'm grateful for all the things that I'm learning from the faith of these people here!
But, yeah. It was a great week. And the weather was super great and sunny and really hot and beautiful too! and I love Costa Rica! and the children of God here! and love you all!! :)
