Looking Up!

Hi Everyone!

This week was really good. This morning it got a lot better when Elder Cohelo wrote me telling me SONIA GOT BAPTIZED! I am so happy for her and that she was able to conquer her addiction and receive the ordinances of salvation! Elder Cohelo sent me a picture.

On Wednesday, (our P-day or day off) we went to a place called country club a little bit out of the city and they had a high ropes course which was pretty fun! It was a good zone activity and we got pretty sunburnt which was good too as long as we don't get skin cancer.

We were able to find a few more people to teach this week which has been exciting and the group is getting stronger! Ten more people went to church yesterday than last week and I feel like I did my part this week to be worthy of that blessing.

One good family we are teaching is the Familia Umacata. They have a baptismal date for the 18 of march but are having trouble going to church. The past two Sundays it has rained, which is a really big impediment to going to church in bolivia for some reason. Most people tell us "I will go if it doesn't rain" haha. But please pray that they can go to church this week!

This week we had a lot of crazy changes with the limits and within the Ward. The other companionship of Elders in the Ward are leaving tomorrow. Their area has been closed because a lot of missionaries go home this cambio. So the Hermanas in the ward will get all of their area and we won't have as many missionaries in the Ward. (The situation is complicated haha, we still belong to the Ward and have the same leaders, we just go to church like 20 minutes away with some of the members)

But, the work is really good here! The members are helping us out a lot and we have been able to help reactivate a few of the less active members here. 

I have been able to learn so much this week and I am so grateful for the Spirit! It is so amazing to have an hour each morning to feel the spirit testifying of truth as I study the words of the prophets! I would encourage all of you to look for that time each day to strengthen your testimony and receive revelation! It is so sacred!

I know that President Monson is truly a prophet of God and that this is His true church. The priesthood of God is on the earth and the work is going forth! As we love and serve, we can be the Savior´s hands here on the earth! He loves us and He lives! Remember it each day and you will always have his Spirit to be with you!

Love you all and hope you have a great week!

Elder Harris
