Jan. 4th, No Subject

So this week was a pretty good week in the mission. We are still
seeing a lot of progression with the Gonzales family. This week we
fasted with the majority of the family and also the majority were able
to go to church yesterday. We had a really good visit with them this
week. He expressed his gratitud for my companion and I that we are
always there to help him and that we never get tired of visiting them.
We plan on trying to rescue them at the end of this month.

This week, we also were working a lot with the Pinto family. Right now
they have been going through a lot of problems. Their son about a
month ago went to the city and there he was accused that he killed
somebody and was sentenced to 30 years in prison. This week he was
released because the police realized he didnt do anything. It was
really cool to me to hear that they knew that their prayers and our
prayers helped their son with this problem. We have been doing a lot
of service. We helped them clean out some big weeds with machetes this
week and we are going to keep helping them this next week. Also the
mother right now has cancer and she made a very big sacrifice to go to
church yesterday. Right now she has cancer and has a lot of pains but
she really wanted to go to church yesterday and nothing stopped her.
Its amazing to see this family and their attitud as they go through
these problems. They never complain and tell us that their prayers
help a lot.

Also this week, a lot of our less actives went to church this past
week. Our church changed from 3 in the afternoon to 8 in the morning.
A lot of the members were very glad to have that change and I think
because of that our attendence is going to go up.

This was a scripture that I found this week and I liked it a lot. D&C
101:9 "Verily I say unto you, notwithstanding [your] sins, my bowels
are filled with compassion towards [you]. I will not utterly cast
[you] off; and in the day of wrath I will remember mercy."

Elder Britt
