We had untilI had the opportunity to give 2 blessings this week, one to an investigator, and the other to a young member. In both I could feel the spirit and I am eternally grateful for el Sacerdocio (the priesthood). It is such a blessing to know that when you need the help of God more directly in your life, you can literally use his power to bless your life. to invite and teach, so we did that as we could. We also had our first Divisions with our Lidere de Districto this week, Elder Roldan. He came to our area, and Elder Ortiz went to his area with Elder Smith, one of the guys that came with me from the CCM.
One thing I sent for him was the testimonies of all of his Anderson cousins and Aunts and Uncles and Grandparents. Warren translated them into Spanish and I put a picture of each person with them. They are a 1/4 page and cut out so he can glue them into a Book of Mormon if he likes. I asked him what he thought he might do with them and he said:
"I`m thinking I am going to share them with different investigators to help them understand that there are other members of the church besides 20 year old young men. I especially am excited to use the testimonies of people that are married and have families, because this is something I can`t really relate to."
