Another killer hot week in San Vicente. Some highlights would have to be a massive rainstorm that was also a low light. There were a lot of strong winds and most of the houses here are made of Chapa or sheet metal. A lot of houses were destroyed and people were left in pretty helpless situations. For us luckily, it only rained inside our pension from 4 places and we had enough bowls to catch the water.
Another Highlight, I built my very first house this week! It is for one of our investigators. It is AWESOME!!!!!! I can't wait till I figure out how to send photos. You'll love it!!!!! So ya. Put up some fences and built a house this week. No big deal.
It was also a real powerful week for us. We had a lot of good experiences teaching people. I've read a lot in 2 Nephi 1 and 2 in the Book of Mormon this week. It is interesting to me the counsel that Lehi gives to his sons. He talks a lot about the concepts that all our actions have consequences and that keeping the commandments makes us happy. It is true too. In 2 Nephi 2:27
Wherefore, men are free according to the flesh; and all things are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself.
We are free to choose two things liberty and eternal life or captivity and death. That makes everything super black and white. There is no grey in life as much as we want there to be. We can choose what we do, but we can't choose the consequences. We are either growing closer to God or falling away. Climbing or Falling. We can't stay dormant in life. We are climbing or falling. Choose the Right! ¡Haz Lo Justo! It turns out that we are happier and the life is easier when we play by God's rules and keep his commandments. His rules and commandments are easier to carry than the consequences of sin! Choose the right! Just do it! Life is so much better that way!
I love you all. No pictures...still. Sorry..... I am taking them though and I'll send a ton soon!!!!
