A week of Divisions

This week has been a very busy week. I have done divisions twice this week so I have been doing a lot of traveling this week but I have learned a lot from people we have taught to the missionaries I have been with.

First this week started of with a lesson called a do or die where if this person did not understand what we taught we were going to drop them. The last lesson we had with him went horrible and all the others we tried to answer his question of why we have suffering in the world and everytime he just didn´t understand and the last time was more of a heated debate. In the end we gave him a 2 Nephi chapter 2 to read and pray about it. We thought he wouldn´t read it so we prepared an amazing lesson....then he read it and recieved an answer so we had to come up with a new lesson on the spot. I learned many things from this experince but mainly always have faith, and if we really actually study, search,and pray we can find answers.

Next I did divisions with Elder Perez due to traveling we ended up having to pass time in a city where he started the mission and went and visted some of his converts and people he worked with even though it was really short, I can´t explain how cool it was to see that reunion, and we even had a lesson with one who wasn´t as active and it was really great. I can´t wait to have that reunion experince with converts that I will have later on in the mission or just with people I worked with that are active now.

While i was on divisions with Elder Perez we taught about the atonement and i remebered a quote that the general 70 from our confrence shared with us that I wanted to share. God is  just god and will never require more than we can do but because he is just he will never accept less than we can do think about that for a while that was a really intresting thought.

After I had divisions with Elder Call and had one of my most successful days ever. Surprisingly like everyday everything fell through so we ended up contacting which we usually don´t find a lot of success but we found 3 famalies and 2 of them recognized us 1 from his really tall height in the bus termianl a few weeks ago, the other happened to be a sister of another family we are teaching and recognized me from helping out with their littler girls birthday party. Anyway we taught all 3 famlilies the same lessons but they were all completely diffrent because they were to the needs it was amazing. We had a really fun day.

The next day me and Elder Sorensen had alot of luck contacting as well we went from teaching no one these past week to having to do divisions with members so we can hopefully teach them all becasue they all want us to come at night.

Anyway Hope you are all having a good week. Remember to keep the faith, do your best and remember for any part you are lacking that is why we have the mercy of Atonement and to use it.

Love you all

Elder Holt
