This semana was FULL of changes. New sector, new companion, our sector was split in 2, I am a trainer now, new misioneros en el campo which I presented in their orientation...WOW and I know my companion and I were only able to do everything with the help of the Spirit. This is not our work, but I know that Christ is over His work.
LOVE my new sector....mucho mucho. Google map the streets vivaceta and independencia and sevilla...and that is my sector. We live in an apartment located on the 20th level, next to the hipodrome (track where they race horses). The sector is really beautiful....one part has houses painted all colors under the rainbow with beautiful gardens. There are more families and the people like to talk. I have so much love for this sector and ward already, and feel blessed to have this time to serve the people here. Our goal right now is to reactivate in this sector. There are soo many menos activos. I love conversing with menos activos because there is always a doubt or something that is stopping them from attending church. It is NEVER too late to change. I love seeing the faces of people in lessons when they have a ¨CLICK¨moment when they feel the spirit.
I learned a really important lesson this week. At times I feel that there is too much to do which leads me to focusing on time..but I learned that this is not the way of Jesucristo. I wrote this to Elder Caden Duffy about this realization...
El ministerio de Jesucristo no era un ministerio donde él estaba corriendo y siempre mirando al su reloj, pero él enfocaba en las personas. Jesucristo esperaría por alguien si ellos necesitaban su ayuda. Tengo un miedo estar floja o no usaré todo tiempo a bendecir el sector....pero no es mejor correr más rápidamente que tenemos la habilidad.
Christ took time to bless every child. Christ took time to wash the feet of His disciples. Christ took time to bless and eat with His disciples.
It is easy to think of other things that we want to do when someone is talking to us...but I know that when we focus more in the individual we will feel more love and power of the Spirit to help the people that are put in our lives.
We need to learn to accept Christ as our Savior.
We taught a joven (youth) this week. He has had a super hard life, does not believe in God, and is questioning his purpose. This teenager..D..has probably tried every thing of the world to find peace. We were able to compart with him a lesson about God and that he is a son of God. How powerful is that phrase...A child of God. I am so grateful for this knowledge. I am a daughter of Heavenly Father..who loves me. I am so thankful for this time to compart my testimony with my brothers and sisters here in the beautiful country of Chile. It is easy to focus on our diferences but in the end, we are more similar than we are different.
LOVE YOU MUCHO MUCHO MUCHO,
