A Very Successful Week

Dear Family,

Well this week was full of things to do. First off i will tell you all that i am doing great. Also i miss carpeted floors and central heating but those are only small insignificant things since we are almost never in the house.

This last week we had Zone Conference. It was a really good one, as always. President Cook talked about the Trinity and Baptism. When he talked about the Trinity he talked about how we need to know who God is and Jesus Christ before we can really under stand the Gospel. Because in this day and age people dont understand fully who God and Jesus are. Meany people dont believe in God and oonly think that Jesus came down and died for us and that we will all be saved. Jusst to prove this point i will tell you two stories. 

One day we talked to man that told us that Jesus died in Getsemani and not on the Cross. So he doesnt understand who Jesus is. Another lady told us that she believes in Jesus not Christ because Christ was and Jesus is and God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost are all Jesus. SO once again she is a little confused. So we all to study up on who God is, who Jesus is, and who the Holy GHost is. 

Also something else that he told us is that we have three fathers. I have the father of my flesh, which is my dad Doug Ashworth. Then i have the father of my spirit, which is our Heavenly Father. Lastly i have the father of the covenant, which is Jesus Christ. So Jesus Christ is also our father we should address him as such after baptism because we 'take his name upon us' when we are baptized.

Then this last wednesday we committed our investigator Marcos to baptism and he said that when he recieves an answer that the Book of Mormon is true he will be baptized without question. Which is way cool, so we are working with him on that. He also read and prayed about the Book of Mormon but hasnt recieved his answer yet. Then on Friday we took him and his family to the temple and they really enjoyed it and we had a great lesson on the temple and testimonies. I know that he will be baptized it just may not be on the date that we set with him. But he is super ready to change and has tons and tons of questions.

On thursday we had divisions and i went with an Elder named Elder Woodis who goes home in 2 weeks. I learned alot about how i can better myself. We also found a new Less Active member to teach. His name is Ernesto and he is super ready also. He invited right into his house and we shared with him and he invited us back. He said that when they inactivated he was a little kid so he doesnt remember much. But he has lots of questions too. 

To top of the week we had a super long, super tiring day Saturday. We had an activity with the youth of our stake saturday morning at 830. We went and took the youth with us to work for about 2 hours. Then me and my companion had to go to the temple to meet Marcos and his family there. Which is an hour and a half in metro and we left at 2 and we had to meet them at 3. It was a strech but we made it. Then we had a priesthood meeting that night at 6 back in our stake center which is where we started our day. Afterward we had some appointment we had to do and we finally entered into the house at 1030. It was a very long but successful day. 

Thats my crazy week for you guys. And you said that you were going to send another package eventually. Well when you send it i would like some fruit snacks and fruit by the foot because you cant find it down here. Thanks and i love you all.
