Bat in the house
Another great week!! This week was súper nice because we had a lot more time to work in our area. There´s nothing better than that. On Wednesday we had the great opportunity to go to the temple for our mission leadership council. We did a session and then met together for a few hours to talk about the new changes that have been going on in the mission. It was awesome, I love the temple so much. You leave just feeling so empowered with the spirit and with desires to just work harder and serve more. I´m grateful that we have a temple so accessible in this mission.
After we got back from the temple we returned to our apartment to find a little bat trapped inside. We always have to leave the windows open so that the humidity doesn't get out of control and a bat found it´s way in. It was pretty dang scared, it was kinda sad. But it was fun trapping it, in the end we threw it back out the window and it was fine :)
My companion and I have been really trying to use the Book of Mormon more in our work. It is promised that the Book of Mormon combined with the spirit is our greatest tool for conversion. Next transfer we are going to be training the mission on how to use it more effectively, so we set a few goals to help us prepare ourselves and learn. We have the goal to give out 20 copies of the book of mormon every day for the next month. We started on thursday and it has been awesome!! It´s amazing how interested people are in it, I had never realized it before. it just really calls people's attention. We found a lot of great people to teach. We are excited to keep going with it and see what miracles it will bring.
I hope you are all well, thanks for everything that you do for me. Good luck with all the new years resolutions, stay strong :) I hope you have a great week!
Les quiero, Elder Burton
