Well, this week was fun.
We have officially hit the "Golden Years" of the Mission. I'm so happy for everyone that I have met while I have been here in this beautiful place that is Bolivia.This week, we have been having some fun doing missionary work. We have been visiting a family called the Sanchez family. Iver (the Dad) is interested in the Church, but just doesn't have that desire yet. His daughters and Niece have gone to church for two Sundays in a row. So we are going to be rescuing his daughters (they are less active members) and baptizing his niece (she is a non-member).
Scripture of the Week:
For if there be no faith among the children of men God can do no miracle among them; wherefore, he showed not himself until after their faith.
Behold, it was the faith of Alma and Amulek that caused the prison to tumble to the earth.
Behold, it was the faith of Nephi and Lehi that wrought the change upon the Lamanites, that they were baptized with fire and with the Holy Ghost.
Behold, it was the faith of Ammon and his brethren which wrought so great a miracle among the Lamanites.
Ye, and even all they who wrought miracles wrought them by faith, even those who were before Christ and also those who were after.
And it was by faith that the three disciples obtained a promise that they should not taste of death; and they obtained not the promise until after their faith.
And neither at any time hath any wrought miracles until after their faith; wherefore they first believed in the Son of God.
And there were many whose faith was so exceedingly strong, even before Christ came, who could not be kept from within the veil, but truly saw with their eyes the things which they had beheld with an eye of faith, and they were glad.
And behold, we have seen in this record that one of these was the brother of Jared; forso great was his faith in God, that when God put forth his finger he could not hid it from the sight of the brother of Jared, because of his word which he had spoken unto him which word he had obtained by faith
And after the brother of Jared had beheld the finger of the Lord, because of the promise which the brother of Jared had obtained by faith, the Lord could not withhold anything from his sight; wherefore he showed him all things, for he could no longer be kept without the veil.
