Hey, whats up everyone? How's everyone doing this week? This week was a pretty good week in Belize City 3!! I wanna hear how all you are doing!! I can't believe Hayden drove the Mustang...those were some pretty cool pics.!!
Me and Elder Burrell are doing super well!! I like that we are working a lot! We are finding a lot of new people and are teaching a ton of less actives. We had 2 less active people come to church yesterday that was super cool...the feeling of someone that hasn't come to church in a long time is just as thrilling as if you are getting baptisms. To see people rekindle their faith and become active again makes me feel super good.
Here in Belize the month of September is the month of celebrations it's known as "Carnival" and we were ordered by President not to leave the house the whole day on Saturday. Its too dangerous in the streets. So we cleaned the house and I read almost the entire book of Our Search for Happiness. So that was pretty fun...hahaha, just kidding... it sucked!! Kinda boring to stay in the house all day.
We found an awesome new investigator, his name is J., and I remember on Friday we were contacting in the streets and we passed by his house and I stopped and said to Elder Burrell, "I don't know why but I feel like we should contact this house....lets go!" So we did and the lesson we had with him was incredible...he told us he saw us passing by and was wondering if we were gonna stop or not. He was super grateful we did.
That was a cool experience...another testimony builder that God is at the helm and He knows what people are ready. "Many are called but few are chosen". I feel like this guy has a lot of potential so lets see how far it goes. A. is doing super well but didn't come to Church because of the Carnival Celebrations and due to local shootings he didn't dare leave his house. But he is still super positive. He has a ton of questions which is good because it tells us he is still interested.
I love you guys and pray for you guys always.!!!
P.S: Sorry this is the only pic we have!!
