For those of you who don´t know, last week I got to go to Managua for a multi-zone conference. We flew there on Tuesday and everything started the next morning. We had the opportunity to hear from President Arredondo, Elder Clark, and their wives. It was an incredible experience! Our whole zone went, expecting to be told the we´re not working hard enough, but that wasn´t the case. The entire conference was incredibley spiritual, uplifting, and motivational. Elder Clark asked us if we truely believed that we had the potential to be Gods and Godesses. After a positive response, he then started explaining that if we have the potential to be Gods and Godesses, there is nothing that we can´t do. If we set a goal to teach 50 lessons in a week, and we pray for help and guidance, we can do it.
We can do ANYTHING! It just takes faith. When we have faith, the Holy Ghost is with us. When the Holy Ghost is with us, we´re unstoppable!
Never get disanimated [discouraged]. When we´re disanimated, we´re doubting. When we´re doubting, we´re not showing faith.
In La Misión Nicaragua Managua Norte, each missionary is aloud to be disanimated for 5 minutes per transfer, but only with special permision. We have to ask permision from our mission president who has to ask permission from the area president. IF the area president gives us permission, we have 5 minutes and we have to be disanimated in the bathroom, so we don´t affect our companions.
Well! Those are some things that I´ve learned this past week. I hope it helps you to realize how powerful we are when we have the Holy Spirit with us.
Have a great week.
Kli wal praubia,
Elder Denton II
