Week 78: Otro cumpleaños Peruano!

Hola todos!

This week was super awesome! We had a lot of stuff do and it is looking like our zone is going to finish up the month fairly well, but from the looks, April is going to be an awesome month for Coma! Elder Yohari and I have been working super, super hard lately to find people and get the zone excited to start finding people for April. Our last district meeting we all left excited and ready to work. I love it when everyone is excited to work for the Lord, it really invites the Spirit into the work. 
Oh yeah, I was also able to use a running analogy in our last district meeting! I talked about Roger Banister (the first man to break the 4 minute mile barrier) and how before he broke the 4 minute mile, scientists had declared the an impossible achievement. But with much diligence and dedication to his training, in 1960, he ran the mile in 3:59. Because of what he did, 18 other men that same year broke the 4 minute mile, because 1 man proved it to be possible. I applied it to missionary work and how a lot of times we find ourselves disappointed our discouraged, but when we put our heart mind to the work, nothing is impossible! If we work diligently and are always happy and always have the Spirit with us, there wont be nothing to stop us from doing great things and helping others achieve great things. I think that many times we could all be a little more like Roger Banister. 

Also, it was Elder Yohari's birthday yesterday, so I cracked an egg on his head! It is a tradition here in Peru to do that, it is one of my favorite traditions here jaja. That was one of the highlights of the week jaja. 

There were a lot of other great things that happened this week but I'll have to send another email next week for ya'll!

Have a great week!
