"It is very important for you to believe, that You Are The One!" -Dream
This week was pretty good. Last Monday, Hermano Barcos took a bunch of us to this place called Playa Larga where we gotta take some of these pics on the cliff rocks and look at Ushuaia from a front view. So it was cool. Hermano Barcos is just another guy who has helped me out here more than he will probably ever know. Such a great guy and a life long friend.
We were able to see Raul this week. Him and Matilde left to go up north to get married. They are great people and we are pumped to try and have their baptisms here in October. We talked with them a little just about keeping on doing what they are doing. That they can keep persevering and that Raul can keep trying to beat this addiction that he has with cigarettes. We know that God gives us weaknesses so that we can be humble and ask for help. So that is really our focus with Raul and its been good.
We also gotta teach Santi this week for the first time in a little bit. We sat down and talked with him about trusting in God and just being able to have that connection. We can't talk to him about baptism because of the situation with his mom, but we are just really trying to help him grow closer to his Father in Heaven. How we need to counsel with God in all things that are important to us. Because if they are important to us, they are important to Him as well which is a good thing to remember. I feel like I learn and grow every single time I go to teach someone.
Jensen and I gotta do divisions this week and we went to see some of his investigators named Irma and Jose. We talked with them just about always being able to learn and grow. We know that we cant always know everything, especially when it comes to the things of God. Jensen shared the scripture that talks about learning "line upon line, precept upon precept" and that was really good. Jose had questions about what that meant and we just explained to him that we learn simply. God isn't gonna start out giving us things we can't understand, but instead, its like we build out own stairs of progress and learning. We used the example like a math teacher isn't going to try to teach a little kid how to multiply and divide, if he doesn't yet know 2+2. Yet we always need to try and have that desire to learn and become better just a little every day.
