Elder Mostacero

#68 New Sector, Same Sector (12/3/19)

Wow what a week.Alma 16:1616 And there was ano inequality among them; the Lord did pour out his Spirit on all the face of the land to prepare the minds of the children of men, or to prepare their bhearts to receive the word which should be taught among them at the time of his coming So I share this scripture because I really have seen the miracles this week of the Lord preparing the hearts of men. This week I saw the wide purposes of the Lords actions and revelations. A new missionary came to our Zone so now I am in a normal trio with my Comp Elder Mostacero, and my old Comp Elder Murcia. Working 2 areas (Carabuela, and Centenario).One day we did divisions and I went with Elder Murcia to my old sector and my other companion worked with a member. I visited two of my converts that are 9 and 11 years old. The parents always hid when we come but we arrived this time and they received us with open arms saying they missed when we passed by and need more prayer in their home. It was the first time we taught them. We shared a powerful 15 min thought and left them with the spirit, and they were asking when we would come again. They are stubborn but their hearts were opened and I know God only sent me 20 min from my old sector for a VERY WISE purpose. My work in my old sector has not finished. I also as a Zone Leader got to help plan a stake missionary training and being that I have 7 months here, no one knows the people better than I do.Another miracle:I was with my companions up in the mountains waiting for the last bus down in my NEW sector. A family of 5 came and sat down next to me so I started to converse with them just small talk and they told me that they are from Carabuela, my old sector. I jumped up and kinda yelled "no way, I lived there for 6 months and know almost everyone, where do you live?". They live in one of the only houses we can't knock cause it is gated apartment where my venezuelan converts live. I guessed their names and it kinda scared them. Other missionaries sent us their reference 4 months ago and we call like 10 times a week until she yelled at us. We chatted and she got to know us AND WE ARE GONNA VISIT THEM AND HAVE THEIR NEW NUMBER!!!!! 3 Weeks ago I kinda just wanted to go to the Jungle but my work here hasn't finished.Rodriguez family:Still are planning on getting married in Feb. They are going to start attending, and they are doing Family Home Evening with members (and us)every week. Next week in their house.We have two more people with a date now. Milton and Esteven Ordoñez for 21 of Dec.My Birthday is this friday and then Saturday Mercedes Cordova will get BAPTISED WAHOOO!CHAO-Elder Hallsted
