Another normal week this week. One great thing is that our investigator Ibelize is progressing great! At church yesterday she cried twice baring her testimony. I think she's the best investigator I've ever had. She always talks about how she feels the spirit so strong and that she knows she's found the truth. Seeing people get converted like that strengthens my testimony so much. We're going to have a family home evening with her tonight, and the district president is going to share the message, it's going to be great.
We did a companionship exchange with the assistants this week. I went with Elder Clark, who is actually from Orem and he went to Timpanogos, and I learned a ton (yes 2000 lbs like dad would say). One thing I learned is that there is no reason to be nervous or anything for things like that because if you're going to be nervous because somebody is going to be watching you work, than why aren't you nervous all the time because God's always watching us. We shouldn't need to change how we act or what we are just because somebody in an authority position is watching us. Another I learned is that I need to smile more because people will be a lot more willing to accept this message and accept that it will change their lives if they see how much it has changed mine first.
Another cool thing that happened was that we went to a council where Elder Martinez from the area presidency went. I learned so much. One cool thing he said is that we need to help our investigators learn by faith. And that the way to soften their hearts so that they exercise faith is loving them, having the pure love of Christ for them. That we need to look at them like Jesus would look at them, that he died for them, and that is seen your eyes. Another thing he said is that we're not here on a mission to make friends with our companions and the other missionaries. He said that if we're being obedient that there will always be some missionaries that don't like us.
Well that's about it for this week!
