Well I can’t believe it, but time flies by so fast. My training will be done in a week and on top of that I will have 4 Months in the field!! Well I hope that I don’t bore you all with my emails right now, but the truth is there hasn’t been too much of a change in the work here. My companion and I are doing really good and because he has only one transfer left until he returns right now he really wants to work hard. The only thing though is that one of our investigators we can’t find and the other were working with slowly. The good news this week though is that the Family that we found attended Church and want to start to return. Elder Mendez and I are very glad really because we really want to see this family back in the Chapel and there youngest daughter to enter the waters of baptism. So this week we had an activity with the ward and we played basketball. All the members were telling me I’m not allowed to play because of the way that I play. All were jokes, but we had a lot of fun with it. Afterward we ate tacos and talked with some of the members.
So this week I learned something that I don’t think it’s possible to forget. So on Saturday in the night I had a bad experience and was making the matter worse in my head by telling myself negative things such as I had an inability to feel the spirit. Later on that night in our apartment my companion talked to me and said these words. Elder Perfili we are not doing anything that you should feel would negate the spirit. We are working and are going to work harder, but if you don’t believe that the Spirit is with you then it’s not. When I heard that I realized that he was very right and had a very good point. If we don’t believe that we can feel the Spirit or receive revelation and answers to our prayers, how is it possible that they are going to happen for us? Not likely at all. Therefore my message is this; Trust in God and trust that the Spirit will lead you in the right direction as you strive to do the right and most importantly BELIEVE that it will accompany you. I leave this message with you and a promise that you will feel the Spirit more if you believe and try your absolute best.
I Love You All
