Hey everybody! well thankfully this week was alot better than last week, although it was still considered vacations it wasn't as bad as the week before, because most people had returned home so we could get back to business. On Tuesday i had a really cool experience in one of the district meetings we had. We listened to the talk by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland where he talks about how Jesus asked Peter 3 times if he loved him, and when he said yes he said "THEN FEED MY SHEEP". ive always really liked that talk, kinda like a spiritual boost you could say. It reminded me that all that we do as missionaries in sharing this great message, we do it for love. Love for our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ. So it just made me think, Do i love him? well after that we got to work thats for sure. I was able to do divisions that day as well with Elder Anaya, he had just barely been in San Jeronimito, my old area! so we spent alot of time talking about everything that had changed in the 6 months id been gone and all the crazy stories we have from there and the even crazier people, it was fun to be able to remember old areas, even old stories i had tried to forget haha. This week me and my companion have also been sharing with alot of people the new Easter video that the church made, prince of peace. I love watching it every time because it always helps me to feel his love and the peace he gives each one of us when we follow him, and we have been trying alot this week to teach everyone the importance of following Jesus Christ and the blessings we can receive. This week we also found a new family of less actives that i had never visited before. We were able to have a very cool lesson with them and talk alot about the importance of the atonement and the blessing we have to be able to repent, it just made me even more grateful for the sacrifice that Jesus made for each one of us! and to show us that they were grateful for our visit, they fed us dinner, and man was that good haha. I love tacos down here and thats exactly what they gave us! me and my companion slept good that night! We also have seen alot of progress in one of our investigators, Antonio. This week he officially stopped smoking! he had been working on that for the last 6 weeks that we had been visiting him, and he finally stopped! we are so proud of him and its so great to always see these amazing changes that people can make in their lives when they trust in the Lord and have the desire to do better! Sunday was the best day of all because even though Sunday is usually one of the days that we don't make alot of visits, this day we made 7! not a whole lot compared to how many i had in a day in Aeropuerto, but its the most ive had here since ive gotten here so i was pretty happy! That was our week! full of work and work and more work. Were going to have divisions with the assistents this week so that should be fun to be with Elder Jambati and Elder Ojeda, two good friends of mine in the mission. I love you all and i hope you all know that God and Jesus Christ loves each and every one of you! thank you for all your love and support! have a great week! Love Elder Griffin
