Happy St. Patrick´s Day!!! :)Let me tell you how we celebrated!! :) Well we ate lunch at an Irish tavern (yes, the owner was from Ireland so we got to hear an authentic accent)...and decided to spend the day surrounded by greenery. We hiked up a beautiful island mountain complete with cactus, palm trees, and pine trees and finished it off with one of the most green lakes I´ve ever seen! God sure does know how to create a beautiful green St. Patrick´s day view. Woohoo. Hope you are all wearing green!
Things are going great- we physically took "P"s cigarettes... rationed them out for him... and he is quiting smoking. We had a little fuerte lesson with him... he wants to be baptized and now he just needs to do the steps required to be ready! :)
"F" ... man he has gone through a lot in his life... I feel like we have grown with him as well over the last few months. Sometimes I feel like I really am here to learn from the people we teach rather than teach them. But really I have learned so much from him and I truly feel like I am a better person just seeing his humility, patience, and trust in the Lord. We had a lesson this week and he stopped us in the middle of the lesson and just basically told us that he believes everything, he agrees with everything from the church and he is ready to be baptized.. He just wants to know for himself that the prophet is a prophet. He has complete and utter trust in the Lord that he will get an answer. It is really rather incredible... and he is also so patient. So we talked a lot about fasting... if we do our part and earnestly seek for an answer the Lord is bound to bless us. The Lord has a perfect timing for all of his children and the answers will come when we are ready to receive them but when we put forth all of our effort and put it in the Lord´s hands for the rest then the blessings will come. ¨I the Lord am bound when you do what I say´... Well this week we are fasting with him. we have put pictures of President Monson all over his piso so he can think and ponder and listen for his answer! :)
