One thing I learned this week: it´s super interesting in the book of Mosiah. There are two stories almost exactly the same in Chapters 21 and 23. Two groups of people get taken into bondage and put in a situation that, as the scriptures say, is impossible for them to get out of themselves. The first group, Limhi´s people, try to get themselves out three times, and just get destroyed. Only then do they humble themselves "to the dust" and cry unto the Lord that HE will deliver them! With the second group, they do that immediately! Both groups are delivered eventually, but only after they learn to be humble and rely 100% on the Lord. It´s impossible for an 18 year old kid to convert a 50 year old Spanish Catholic lady, especially when the 18 year old white kid doesn´t know Spanish;) I´ve tried a few times, more than three probably, and it doesn´t work! So I´m learning how to be humble and rely completely on the Lord and the Holy Ghost!
Anyway, that´s the week in Chimbote Central. Thank you all for you emails and love and prayers and support! I hope everyone has a super duper week and I´ll talk to you next Monday!
