Elder West's Favorite Scripture

And now, my son, I have told you this that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn of me that there is no other way or means whereby man can be saved, only in and through Christ. Behold, he is the life and the light of the world. Behold, he is the work of truth and righteousness (Alma 38:9)

Big Papaya and a bag of Bread 5-1-2012

hola familia,

this week was pretty good as well. we had alot of really good experiences.
the first one was a good experience but also kind of sad. the family that
we were going to baptize on sunday couldnt get baptized. right now hermano
emilio hasnt had work and at 6am on the day of his baptism some dude called
him and was like, hey i have work for ya, im going to come by and pick you
up in 20 minutes. i felt really confused because i was doing everything
possible to get this family baptized and i knew that god wanted me to
baptize them so i asked my self why would god let that happen. very soon
afterward i realized that the will of god is always going to be exactly
what i want. emilio has been praying for work for the past month and a half
and for him it was a huge blessing. and in the end i was able to realize
why god let that happen. but they are going to get baptized in 2 weeks. and
if you are wondering why i am typing in all undercase letters it is because
the shift key on this keyboard doesnt work.

on sunday, in 2 lessons people gave us free food. a big papaya and a bag of
bread. in the street we found viviana, the wife of emilio, and she was
carrying a pot. we asked her what are you going to do with that pot? and so
she told us that she was going to her moms house to see if she could heat
up some atol (corn based drink that you heat up, the government gives it
out for free to everybody) because they dont have money to heat it up her
self. i then realized that i had a bag full of bread in my back pack, and
elder flores had a big papaya in his backpack, so we gave it to her. she
started to cry, and told us thatshe had no idea what she was going to give
her children to eat, but she knew that god would provide.

i tried to attach fotos right now but i cant. i think that computers are
from the devil.

my companion just got his plane ticket emailed to him and that made him a
little bit baggy.

my church starts at 10am and ends at 1pm. so i could call at 8am my time,
or satuday at at night at 8pm my time. sunday is hard because i could call
at 6pm but that is the best hour to work and so that wouldnt be ideal.  let
me know if you guys are willing to wake up at 6 am on sunday or if it would
be better saturday at night.
