I had a great birthday, thanks for all the birthday wishes!
This week Sister Hualinga and I had a big zone conference and at the end the President opened it up to questions. I had a little/big question on my mind about how we address the members. Here in Peru they use first names, not last names, at church. So, ¨Obispo Javier¨ or ¨Hermano Diego¨ and in the mission manual it clearly says we should use last names. So I had the mic and I asked what we should be doing.
Why I ever diverted from the clear instructions in the mission manual I do not know, but I was very publicly called to repentance (haha) and the past couple days my companion have been working hard to learn everyone’s last names! It’s going to be a hard transition but we are committed to doing it!
This week was great nonetheless. I am learning to have patience; it is not always easy. Helping people repent of things I have never personally had a problem with requires more from me than I thought I had to give, but the Lord is helping me. Not only am I stregthened when I think that it is possible because He has done it, but also when I feel His Spirit it is easier
I love you all! Sorry I don’t have more time!
