Just Checking Up

Dear People of Earth,
We´re now entering in the last week of the transfer and today I make 20 months in the mision. Wow, it flies so fast!

Yesterday night we went to follow up with a new family we´re teaching. We arrived at our marked appointment to find their home locked up. Nobody was home. We proceded with our follow up plan, when oddly enough, we felt inspired to enter the neighborhood Seventh Day Adventist Church. When we entered, we were well received, given water  cups, greeted with big smiles and given a place to sit. We watched  broadcast that they were having. Afterwards, they made a special announcement thanking for our presence. When they prayed at the end, they prayed for us. It was a marvellous experience. We discovered that many of our investigators are from this Church. They were so happy to see us there. Almost all of them said they would come visit our church as well and we many of them asked for visits. It was such a unique and wonderful experience for us.
This week I decided to share what is now one of my favorite scriptures. Our Mission President always shares it with us. When he speaks this scripture, it´s as if we´re in an ocean of the spirit as that wonderful calm feeling washes over us.
Helaman 10
 4 Blessed art thou, Nephi, for those things which thou hast done; for I have beheld how thou hast with unwearyingness declared the word, which I have given unto thee, unto this people. And thou hast not feared them, and hast not sought thine own life, but hast sought my will, and to keep my commandments.
 5 And now, because thou hast done this with such unwearyingness, behold, I will bless thee forever; and I will make thee mighty in word and in deed, in faith and in works; yea, even that all things shall be done unto thee according to thy word, for thou shalt not ask that which is contrary to my will.

Elder Engle
