On Tuesday I was extremely anxious about some decisions I had to make. I then went to district meeting and received pressure from our leaders to baptize Alfredo. I was about at the breaking point. I was praying but not feeling like I was receiving answers. I just knew that I needed to talk to President. On Wednesday I was able to talk to him about everything and since then I have felt such peace and know that the decisions I am making are correct.
He gave me counsel about Alfredo to stay strong with my decision, even if those around me don't agree. He told me "the path of a leader is sometimes solo" but that he supports me 100%. He gave me such peace about doing things for the right motive and not just to achieve a goal. He also helped me to feel peace about my work here in Ramos.
I am just so grateful for the opportunity to have someone I can talk to in the mission (who is more than 20 years old haha) and has such wise advice.
The highlight of my week was a lesson which we had Tuesday afternoon. All transfer we have had a reference named Romina from another investigator, Adriana, that we haven't contacted and Monday night I was questioning Hermana Rohm how we could come in contact with her. She didn't have any answers so we left it at that, but Tuesday afternoon the Lord placed her in our path.
We were able to meet Romina in Adriana's apartment and then she invited us over to her house next door to talk. We taught the restoration and it was one of the best lessons I think I have had in my mission. It felt so incredibly natural and I felt as though I were just explaining it to a friend. She had such great questions because she actually understood! When we shared the first vision we paused for a moment and she just said, "Wow." It was a wonderful lesson and I am excited to continue teaching her.
