Dear Family, First off, I would just like to say that Mom touched my heart. After telling her that I didn´t have time to mail my ballot, she emailed me saying Satan is working hard then. So I found a fax machine and sent my vote in. Oh, BTW, I just might´ve scratched off the ``pre-voted´´ mark for Mitt Romney that mom put on my paper and my hand might´ve slipped and marked Obama. I hope you guys still love me.. This week was a little slow in actually finding and teaching people. It´s because we had a baptism. Not only one, but three people! One is a mother, Zoraida Antezana and her 20 year old son, José Darlin. She was golden and I just made her my pensionista since she always gives us food anyways. Also, José wants to go on a mission. The other one, Limber Ruis, is a friend of José and a boyfriend of a member. He always comes to church and knows everything. He told us this past week that he wants to get baptized. yeah, we can work that out. So the zone leaders came down Wednesday for the first two interviews. The president came on Thursday for a question 4, and then the zone leaders came back friday for Limber. That was basically my week, a lot of preparation for a baptism. Now, we need to find others. We have a lot of potentials, but they don´t want to make any committments yet. So I talk alot about faith, miracles, and changing areas or people. But I´m not convinced that you guys truly know what I´m talking about and how I feel. Well, we all make decisions everyday, and before we actually act, we calculate whether we should do it or not. We estimate our ablitity to handle the situation and look at the consequences of suceeding and failing. But a rule of thumb includes two things, if we can clearly see ourselves doing something and if it is desirable, we generally pursue it. We also have to be convinced it´s possible before we act. In order for our mind to be convinced, we need appropriate evidence. Evidence like facts, statements, or propositions we believe to be true. Our perception regarding feasibility is what determines our level of confidence. We can´t have confidence in our ability unless we see clearly how to accomplish it. If we can´t see ourselves completing college, we never do. If we can´t see ourselves with a better job, we don´t strive for one. And if we can´t see ourselves happy - we never are. So it needs to seen clearly and be desirable. But when things we desire or hope for are beyond our control, it´s difficult to see clearly. For example, natural elements like rain for crops. The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us to pursue righteousness even when we can´t see how! ``Faith is things hoped for and are not seen (Ether 12:6).´´ The evidence presented and our personal worthiness governs the strength or weakness of our faith. But the natural disposition is to doubt. If at any moment, we conclude something isn´t feasible, we don´t have faith. This is because Faith and fears/doubts cannot occupy the mind at the same time! ``Dispute not because you see not, for ye recieve no witness (assurance) until after the trial of your faith (Ether 12:6).´´ This is what I mean when I talk about faith. Pursue righteous things, even when you can´t see how, relying on God for guidance. Some missionaries learn to see with an eye of faith. When they do, they can see how the way will be prepared for people to join the church. I know that if we have this kind of faith, miracles will proceed. That is how I approach my area and look, I can now see the assurance of how God has helped this area. It is one thing to be aware of divine power and entirely something else to see how that power will assist us. -Elder Walker P.S. The fotos. I got my laundry machine, my kitchen, and my pet. Happy Halloween or as they call it here the witch´s night. But they mostly celebrate Dia de los Santos. A day to remember their dead ancestors or family.
