Paso 2.1 - Contacting By The Spirit

Hey folks!

Elder Jay and I had a very disappointing week and we are not very pleased about our results.  We talked about it a lot in our weekly planning of why we weren't seeing the kind of success we have been expecting. These past few weeks have been probably the best of my mission because we have always had the spirit with us and have followed its guide and we have been really obedient but it also has been the most challenging part in my mission also with setbacks and challenges. 

This past week we would go to our appointments and no one was there or they were busy and couldn't dispose a few minutes.  However, we are not focusing on that, but how we can change it all around for this next week.  We have seen more activity from the members also and sacrament is more full every time and starting to give us more references.  We are still excited and will work even harder and change things up this week to find more success.

We also had a very cool experience this week using Paso 2.1, one of our mission tools we use to contact by the spirit and use the same question Joseph Smith had.  We didn't have anything to do Friday night and we couldn't think of anything to do so Elder Jay suggested we use Paso 2.1, so we did.  We followed all the steps and were looking forward with faith to the time of the night that we would be using Paso 2.1.  We were waiting and were able to contact a few people, but something amazing happened as we kept trusting someone would be sent our way and as we listened to the Spirit.  We were by the metro station and a train had just arrived and big groups of people were coming out.  We said "buenas noches" to a group of about 5 people that walked by and I felt the Spirit just as strong as I do when I teach and I saw one lady stop for a brief moment and do a small half turn, but then she turned and kept walking.  I was going to run after her, but the Spirit told me to just stay and that she would come back.  I kept feeling the Spirit very strongly and I knew it was her that God had sent to us to contact.  I waited and kept watching as she entered into a store to buy a drink and as she came back out and returned our way.  She came passing by and we said "buenas noches" to her and she looked at us directly, smiled back, and said "buenas noches" back to us.  We stopped her and contacted her with the question.  She said that she was baptized a few years ago, but was never confirmed because she didn't have time to go to church because of work.  She said she was having some troubles lately and that she really felt she needed to start going back to church and receive her confirmation also.  We were very excited to have found her and we are going to meet with her this week and provide the blessings for her that she needs right now for herself and her family.

Great experiences and more to come! We are doing great. Have a great week! Love you all!

¡Ten fe y se obediente!

Todo mi amor,
Elder San Diego
