Week 54- Huanta, Ayacucho, Peru: Another Week Here in Huanta (and PICTURES!)

This week has been a lot of change; after the last two baptisms we were in need of new investigators and we kept finding new people and putting fechas bautismales (translation: setting baptismal dates). we went from having two with fechas (dates) to 8, with three more hinging on a signature from a parent. Now we just need to work on getting EVERY one of them to church. That will be the refiner's fire for our new investigators; we will teach them clearly to give them the best opportunity to follow Christ.

Another cool thing that has happened in our district (four programs: the zone leaders, two sets of sisters, and us) is that we have a total of 28 people with fecha bautismal this month. That's a ton. Also we found more than 20 new investigators. We just need to everybody to progress and it will be awesome. I'll keep you updated.

So just a quick spiritual thought for this week. I was reading from 3 Nefi and found some great things.

"Ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, and itis also written before you, that thou shalt not kill, and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment of God; But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother shall be in danger of his judgment. And whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council; and whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore, if ye shall come unto me, or shall desire to come unto me, and rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee—Go thy way unto thy brother, and first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come unto me with full purpose of heart, and I will receive you.

 And behold it is written also, that thou shalt love thy neighbor and hate thine enemy; But behold I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you and persecute you;

For, if ye forgive men their trespasses your heavenly Father will also forgive you; But if ye forgive not men their trespasses neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Judge not,that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and withwhat measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye,but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye Or how wilt thou say to thy brother: Let me pull the mote out of thine eye and behold, a beam is in thine own eye. Thou hypocrite, first cast the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother’s eye."

Don't judge others cause they sin differently than you!

I love and miss you all!
