January 27, 2016-Best Week EVER

Hello family. 
This week has been insane. So many things have happened. Starting with Monday we had a surprise interview with president . That was awesome though, I love talking with president. He is awesome.  We've had so many weird things happen to us. For example on Friday, elder T found that he had a wisdom tooth , so we went and got it removed. It was like a sharks tooth. It was massive. So yes, it has made this weekend a less of a delight for him that is FORSURE. He is handling it like a boss though. We have still gone and worked everyday, so good for elder T for being a faithful elder !   Also while teaching in deal paso heights I got both bike tires jacked off my bike... So that has caused some troubles. We moved back into our apartment . But when it started poring rain again it leaked and caused more wet spots all over the wall. So they are trying to deal with that. Today while driving the car I unrolled the window and some how I think the glass shattered inside the door , so that's no good.  I tried ox tail for the first time. It was a Filipino meal called curecure . It was amazing. We also have so much work going on. We should have some baptisms coming up. Possibly 3 or 4. So there has been no shortage of teaching appointments.  On Wednesday there was a world wide missionary broadcast from salt lake. The quorum of the 12  and members of the 70 trained every missionary in the world. I guess I could say the number one message I took from the meeting was the importance of setting up an environment in which the spirit can testify to the investigator that things we share are true. More important than what I say is the opportunity for the spirit to be present. We must be the vessel  that spirit can reside in so we can carry it into their homes. We gain the spirit long before we enter their homes. It starts at our obedience and our preparations through studies ! 

So on Saturday we fasted with one of our investigators who is so solid and is going to make the best member of the church but he just has a few questions that he won't tell anyone. We fasted and it was such a powerful fast. It was weird because the fact o was fasting didn't even phase me. We went to their home for dinner and  talked about it. He read a scripture that struck him in doctrine and covenants section 8:10.  Which if you read it, it literally speaks directly to his situation. We then proceeded to have a super spiritually powerful lesson. It was crazy. Not only that but the next day at church everything we talked about the night before was EXACTLY what we talked about in elders quorum. How crazy is that ? We also had another lesson that night. He is getting so close . The fast just felt so good and got him that much closer. I have such a testimony of fasting... It really does work !! I love you all ! I love where I am at in the ward I'm in with the companion I got . Till next week !
