Mission tour with Elder Ribeiro. He challenged us in the office to be more productive than the missionaries in the field. That´s a tall order, but if he says we have to do it, looks like it´ll be done! In his training he talked about how after the natural man leaves a person, the devil trys 7 times harder with different sins to get the person to fall. He used Luke 11 to explain
When the aunclean spirit is gone out of a man, bhe walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, che saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.
Then goeth he, and taketh seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last of that man is worse than the first.
He then talked about how we can´t let the gaps open in our testimonies that will let these temptations take us down.
We also had a huge easter feast. No lamb like they had at home, but it was awesome. It was enough "to put roofing on the stomach" like they´d say here.
Our teaching pool is growing again! We are using everything that chapter 9 of Preach My Gospel says to find more people to teach. Referrals from the members are the best! They call someone to listen to a message in their house, or we find someone who will receive us and invite them over to the house of a member! If we had a Ward Mission Leader it would help out a lot. It´s been several months that we are without an official one.
This coming week we are gonna do work!
