September 5, 2016

It has been one crazy week.... jajajajaja. It has been a lot of trainings and meetings this week. Tuesday we had Leadership meeting all day, Then Wednesday was weekly planning in the morning and meeting with stake missionary guy in the night, Thursday Zone conference, Friday doctor for my comp with a bad knee and tormenta blanca in the afternoon, Saturday BAPTISMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, Saturday afternoon we trained the ward mission leaders, Sunday church. So it has been every day a meeting of some sort. in 2 of them we had to train... jajajaja. It was completely crazy. We weren't able to do almost anything of the normal missionary work in the week. So that was a sad point... but what can we do. Some weeks you just have to do with what comes your way. 

It was good week anyways because Yolanda Domingez was baptized. She was basically a member when we started teaching her. She lives all the commandments except that she drank a little tea. But she heard that it was something we shouldn't drink and she stopped drinking it immediately. She got her testimony that the church was true when she went  to the church I think. A lot of prayer too. It was as if we just passed over the topics because she already knew them. It was so awesome. She gave her testimony after the baptism and in the church Sunday. She is now preparing to go to the temple in 2 weeks to do baptisms for the dead of her own family. That makes me so happy :) She is a true convert. 

I hope you guys are doing good. This week I have been learning a lot about the Book of Mormon. Nephi has been teaching me a lot ;) He has taught me the true purpose of the Book of Mormon and for what purpose it is written. It was interesting. President Goates talked to us about the importance of the Book of Mormon in answering all the questions we or people in the street have for their lives. The Book of Mormon can answer whatever question we have if we read it with real intention and listen to the spirit as we read the words. It has helped me to see the truth of the doctrine we teach and more importantly it helps me learn who God and Jesus Christ are and the love that they have for each and every one of us. It is a gift that I think all of use without understanding what book we really have in our hands. The ONE book in al the world that can give us all the answers we seek. I know that it is the word of God and that if you read it with real intent that you will be able to feel the same love that I have for these sacred scriptures. I hope that you all can enjoy the greatest book in all of mankind. 

Love you guys a ton. Keep safe.

Con amor,

Elder Hakes
