March 7, 2016

Corbin is growing and doing great.

CHANGES!!!!!  (por fin)
This week was a little slow on the work side because i had to go to rancagua to get my carnet (all my paperwork to be legal here) and my companion wanted to say goodbye to the members on the weekend. But as for the investigators, Daniela we are going to leave for a bit, she wants to progress but is super lazy with her commitments and we feel that it is best to give her a small break. Rodrigo and his family were taught the importance of scripture study and family prayer which can invite the spirit into their lives to help him quit his habbit of smoking. They told that they were going to do it and i will be going back this week to make sure all is going well with that. Elena called and told us that she read the chapter that we left her to read in the book of mormon which was actually a really nice surprise, she said that she has some questions about the reading that we will go and help her clarify this week. We are keeping her fecha the same and are really going to push her to keep assisiting church. Gustavo and Macarena are good as normal. Elder Paynemil and Elder Cluff taught them when i was in rancagua the importance of Family Scripture Study. They said that they are going to do it because they want to learn more. So far there is no near solution to their problem of divorecment, but we will keep trying to find solutions. There was a baptism this week of a kid of a recent convert family. He is 8 and his name is Maximo. it was good for the ward and i think it really boosted the excitement in the ward. 
In my personal study this week i came across a verse that i would really like to share because it helped me out a ton. 
D&C 6:34 
"Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail."
This really was an awesome scripture because it promises that if we are built upon his rock, (if we are obedient to the commandments and do what the prophets ask) hell or earth cannot prevail. That is awesome to know that we have this promise in this life.
This change i will be starting to train a new missionary. Should be an awesome experience and hopefully i can help him out a lot. 
Elder Waite

to add on the bottom for the blog for this week.
This week also was a little weird. When i was coming home from Rancagua we got stuck in the bus termanal in Curico, a city on the way to Talca, and we couldnt finish our travels to Talca that night. We luckily found some missionaries there and slept on their floor in their house. Also, we went to a house of member to visit, and we had to cast out demons from his weird and so cool. love you all and hope your week is filled with joy.
