This week was pretty slow. We didn't have very many lessons because my companion started therapy for her knee (she hurt it a while ago) and that took up some time...we also helped a little bit with the Church's program "Helping Hands". Some doctors from the states came down to do free dental and lental (haha, eye stuff) work for people who live here in Atlixco.
So this email will be pretty short because I don't have much to say. The works of God continue here in Atlixco and worlds and lives abound. (If you can name that song I will give you 5 pesos). We had stake conference this weekend, and it was really great! The Saturday night session a returned mission president and his eife spoke about the relationship between the missionaries and the members. The missionaries are here to help the members introduce their friends to the gospel! It is our job to teach those people that the members are finding. Convert retention is much higher when those converts are references of the members!
Entonces, challenge! Find one person this week who is not a member that you will invite to a specific church function! Be it a ward activity, sacrament meeting, scripture study class, whatever. Find the courage to share your testimony about the gospel with other people. If you think "no, they're not ready. They don't want to meet with the missionaries", think again! We can't be the judge of when other people are ready. That's not our job. Our job is to open our mouths and invite!
