Week 14 service

Alright here are how things are going down here in Colombia. 

Martes- My companion made breakfast burritos which were super good! Then we had a lesson with Elizabeth about the Libro de Mormon which went really well, especially with the help of a member Hermano Patino and his great testimony. We haven't been back since so hopefully she is doing well, and keeping her compromisos. 

Mericoles- I wasn't feeling very well again. Later in the afternoon we helped a member move out of their apartment. 

Then we had a lesson with Jonathan that went really well. We told him to pray about the Book of Mormon and find out for himself if it is true, and then invited him to be baptized on feb 21 and he accepted, so hopefully. 

Jueves- We planned all morning, then had ward council. I also gave my first priesthood blessing in Espanol this week.  I am pretty sure I said some stuff wrong but the words aren't what matter the most, so that is good. 

Viernes- We were able to do service and help some less actives move. That was a lot of fun. Later that night we had divisions. I went with a returned missionary and we were able to have one lesson with a non member about the law of chastity, so that was good. 

Sabado- When we left our apartment my companion forgot the keys so we were locked out until 2 pm. We found someone who could basically break into the apartment and pick locks so that was good but kind of scary at the same time. We also had emapandas which are really good. We had paypaya too! Then We had a lesson with Maria and Jonathan in el campo. They are doing well. Oh it is also starting to rain here. That is really nice because, then it is not so hot. 

Domingo- We went to church! Then we had lunch with the Camargo family, and they served us pasta which was super good, plus it wasn't rice. Next we went to visit Jonathan and he has been struggling. He said he couldn't sleep the night we told him to pray and see if the Book of Mormon was true. He also said he has been having a painful feeling in his heart as well. We explained to him that God is here to help us, and then he got super emotional. We shared the Joseph Smith experience how at first he was surrounded by darkness but then came the light that was beyond description , so I think that helped. We are having Noche de Hogar con el este Noche, so hopefully  it will go well! 

5 things I am grateful for.
1) the gospel of course, and the blessings we get from being obedient. 
2) families especially ours! I love you guys so much! 
3) rain!!
4)packages the ones you sent came. I love the slippers, candy, and photos. 
5) letters

Things that made me smile
Pictures from the packages, little kids here, Hermana Fanni always making sure we have plenty to eat, and the Nutter butters! 
Love you all so much! Have a great week 
Love Elder Strong
