Knocking on Doors

Hola Familia,

The last couple of days have been really great.  Overall everything has gone really well and we had a great time and a ton of awesome experiences.  Late Tuesday night we got back from Arequipa.  We only had a couple days to get our lessons in for the week, so we worked super hard.  We were able to find a bunch of people.  The work is doing great.  As it always happens in life; you have times when you get to enjoy the fruits of your labors and then others when you just work ha ha.  As a Zone we are working right now and all we have to do is to keep pushing forward and keep figuring out everything.  We just need to keep pushing forward.  For a couple nights and just knocked doors ha ha.

Knocking on doors ha ha.  You get people that will talk because they listen to everyone and then you get people that will lie to you and say they are busy or send there child to answer and lie for them (ha ha) or you get people that don’t care and just shut the door quite hard and then the people that are ready to hear you.  It is a fun time and super interesting to see how everything works out.  But, I love it.  I love seeing and feeling the Spirit (Spanish version) telling us where we need to go and what we need to do and how we can talk to a person.  Then we had a sweet lesson with this investigator and his brother, whose a member.

We were finally able to talk to the both of them.  They are doing great and it was so cool to see how everything is going and how we can have the older one help the younger one come to church.  We are going to work hard to help them be better.

This week was awesome.  We were able to see miracles (Spanish version) and have answers to our prayers (Spanish version).  I learned something that really impacted me was, we were in a lesson with a family and they were talking about marriage (Spanish version) and the wife was like the thing for a happy marriage is to really know who you are going to marry, know their cons and their pros and if you can live and have a family with all the cons then marry him and if not don’t do it.

I love you all so much,

Elder Cooley
