This week was pretty interesting! So I wasn't able to email a couple days ago cuz it was carnival. For those of you that don't know what carnival is, it is chaos haha usually they have missionaries stay inside for three days, but we were able to go out but be in really early. During the few days there is a lot of drinking involved in the streets, people hardly wearing clothing, people getting hurt. haha so it is pretty dangerous. So we were able to still see some people where it wasn't so crazy. I was able to see some of the more cultural side to it when we drove past the parades and stuff so that part was really cool!
We have been contacting in this Muslim village. So you can guess how that's been working out. It is interesting to hear their beliefs. They are pretty nice tho, they invite us in sometimes but they are mostly die hard Islamic people, we have found some interested people tho. With them we have been teaching a lot about the nature of God and the God head, the lessons have been so spiritual. In the lessons you can feel it's the spirit teaching and not us. This women started crying in one, it is truly amazing to see people understanding who our Heavenly Father is. Our Heavenly Father wants everyone to know who he truly is and these lessons, people have been able to understand that and feel the spirit. That's been one of the highlights of the week.
Not much else, just the same old same old. I want to challenge everyone to have that daily prayer in their lives, prayer is so important and special. It is communication with our heavenly father. As we speak to him, he is going to speak with us and I know for a fact that he always answers our prayers!
I hope everyone has a great week. one love!
