HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK........... sitting in a bus for 16 hours.
This week we got trained by Elder Falabella of the Seventy. I got to shake his habd and everything. Which means I only have 68 left to go....... We got trained in Lima so we had an 8 hour bus ride form Ica one day and an 8 hour bus ride back the next. On the bright side I got to read a lot of Jesus the Christ and get enlightned. Perhaps the most profound thing I read was the difference between happiness and pleasure. Happiness is looked backed on, and the same feelings emerge as they did in the moment of happiness. Pleasure is often looked backed on with some regret or discomfort. Happiness does not require repentance.
With that I would like to share a happy experience. We round two new investigators this week and they seemed really receptive. One of them was interested in spiritual gifts, particularly the gift of tongues. The other was WAY interested in eternal families, we gave him a book of mormon and he started to read it immediately. Needless to say we have a new hope for missionary work here in Perú.
Love, Elder MacGregor
