My companion and I made an agreement to give it our ALL this week and try to go way beyond our normal goals. We wanted to show Heavenly Father and ourselves that we are way more capable than we think we are. I know I could have given it more, but at the end of the week when we closed all our numbers it was the best feeling to know that we worked our tails off!!! Never forget the potential you have as a child of God.
On Thursday we had an incredible day. Normally a majority of our appts. fall through or something happens everyday, BUT Thursday all of our investigators were home and our lessons were extra spiritual. We have one investigator that we have been teaching for about 3 or 4 weeks. His name is R. I don´t know why, but he just refuses every week to go to church with us.... Sister da Rosa and I have been praying all week for him and taught a lot about the Sabbath Day. Finally on Thursday when we invited him to church he said, ``I will go with you guys. 8:00 am I will be here waiting.`` 8:00 am he was there waiting!!! Long story short he was our bishop´s math teacher in college. hahaha!
We also had the baptism of Manoel!!! He is 19 and the kind of young man that is ready to go on a mission right now. He is already reading in Mosias and knows without a doubt the church is true. Probably one of the most elect I have taught on my mission.
Just another week of working hard and helping others :)
