Dear familia, Well my heart has been filled and my joy is full. I´m not sure exactly why. I was just reading 3 Nefi 16 - 20 this morning when Jesus is talking to the Nefitas. It makes me want to read it again and again and share the Book of Mormon with everybody. Nothing really happened this week that stood out that I could write about. We contacted new people, visited old people, helped people progress, etc. Oh, I gave a pretty cool talk in sacrament meeting and I bore my testimony in Quechua and everyone said how I speak pretty good. One thing I don´t really like doing is contending. First of all, the people are not very educated (especially with the Bible) and I could easily blow them out if I wanted to. But that´s not our goal. Second, its like ´what Jesus said, forgive them father because they don´t know what they do. These people are just ignorantly listening to their pastors who try to discredit us, but they haven´t even thought of the possiblities of this saving gospel of Jesus Christ that we have. Finally, our purpose is to invite others to come until Christ. It´s not to argue, obligate, pressure, or get angry, but to kindly share our message and invite them. If they still refuse, move on. We can´t force them. There are other people out there that need our message. That´s something that I´m trying to teach my companion. He gets angry when they don´t easily accept our message or when they say something bad about our religion. But, he´s pretty new, I´m only his second companion. I´m like his mom. That´s another thing that I´ve learned in the mission, the role of parents to children and vice-versa. In the mission, I´m his mom. I know what´s best for him/us and our work. But alot of times, he doesn´t like to listen to me because he thinks that his way is always better. All I can do is have patience in his learning that there are more than 1 way of working. He´s used to what is trainer taught him. But he sometimes says the same thing everytime we teach the restauration. Is the same thing in the real world. Maybe I was like that too. But children, especially teenagers think that parents don´t understand them and never could. That they know how to do things better. But most of the time, parent´s do know what´s best because they were kids and have experienced many things. It´s the same thing with our Father in Heaven. As children of God here on earth, we are sometimes rebellious and think that God doesn´t know what he´s doing. But if we learn to find out his will, then trust it, our lives will always be better. -Elder Walker P.S. The shoes in the pictures are a time capsule.
