This week I felt the Spirit guide us.. I know without a doubt in my heart that the Spirit guides missionary work. The other day we had 2 charlas fall through within 15 minutes of leaving the house.. #uruguayprobs. We didn´t know what to do.. we were honestly just walking around aimlessly. Just then I had an impression that we should go visit Lourdes and Marcelo. I couldn´t deny it. I put it off for a second as we went to another house and then I told Elder Naylor that we need to go visit them because they are going to be there. (side note: beginning of the change we went like every single day trying to find them because they were such a family of gold. We continued to do that for about 2 weeks and we decided that they were never home, and besides that, their home was off the beaten path). Elder Naylor was down to make a visit so we made the long walk over there. As we showed up to the house they were outside. We were invited in and we had an absolutely beautiful charla with them about the Restoration. I don't why we were supposed to go other there... who knows maybe they won't be baptized by us, but I know that our Heavenly Father is preparing them to baptized. I am so grateful for the Holy Ghost and for the way that it guides us.
This Saturday we have the opportunity to watch one of God´s daughters enter the waters of baptism.. Ana is so ready! We still don't know who is baptizing her, I hope she picks Naylor... it would be awesome for him. We couldn't be more excited for her and we are soo happy to see her change her life and become a member of the only true church! Missionary work truly is a blessing! Love it!
We received changes and we got another change together! Wahoo! It is going to be a sweet change. I am super excited for all that we are going to do. I am so grateful for Elder Naylor and for the fun that we have as we work our tail ends off. We definitely are very blessed here in Cerro 8.
Well peeps.. I sure do love you all! Time is going by way too fast.. next P-day we will be preparing for general conference.. like what?! I can't believe we are already here again! I hope that you all have a wonderful week! Keep smiling and know that the Lord blesses you daily!
Love, Elder Taylor Abel.. a smiling missionary!
In celebration of my 15 months out....we made a cake that Taylor Hancock sent me for my birthday last year. It was a blue velvet cake with yummy yellow frosting... which is so Uruguayan and adorable! We had fun making the cake, but it was even better when we each ate half of it in one night.... so much cake but so worth it!
Enjoying an "Alfajor" treat. Now you see it.....
