6.23.08

Hello,
I have had a pretty good week. It´s been hot and muito chuve. Which is normal. The investigators are keeping up again which is what we want. Nobody is ready for baptism for a couple of weeks but we have people that want to learn about the gospel. Thanks to the help of the members. A couple of Sundays ago the ward called a new ward missionary leader. He is a convert of 2 years and he is 20 years old and preparing to serve a mission. His got a huge desire to fire up the members again. The staff want to move the staff house closer to the office so that means that I will have to move from here in a week or so. They want to move before the transfer is over in a week. So I will be changing houses in a week, regardless of being transferred out of Telegrafo. We will see what happens.
This morning I was reading in alma 32 sobre . The parable of a seed. I love the language that was used to describe how a good seed grows. A swelling of your soul. First we have to try out the gospel then it takes time for the seed to grow or not to grow. If it’s a good seed it will grow and your soul will swell. If it’s a bad seed then it wont grow. Anyway about the good seed. We need to nourish that seed in our soul so it will become a tree. And continue to nourish the tree that we can one day partake of the its fruit, eternal life. Matt 7 has a similar parable, with the same idea about faith. Developing faith is an ongoing process, just like the other principles of the gospel.
Take care all,
Ryan Spencer
