Tuesday was day of emergency transfers we went to Lisbon made the switch and returned, we had a good start by running to the train with Elder Angulo´s luggage and making it by 10 seconds before it left!
Wednesday morning I woke up at 3 and my head felt like a pressure cooker haha it hurt so bad and i was up for a while in the night, the next day Elder Angulo was feeling a lottle sick to but that didnt stop us from preaching the Restored gospel.
When we arrived to Montijo we had an appointment far away but the timing didn't work out very well to go there and something didn't feel right about it so we didn't go, we passed the next day turns out it was a fake address so we decided to knock some doors we passed an apartment building 171. I had a prompting to knock it. We went to the third floor and found and taught Catia the plan of Salvation, the day we went there was her day off of work if we would have gone the day earlier we wouldn't have found her, milagré!
I reached 1 year on the mission preaching the gospel, it has been the most unique year of my life, leaving the family, and adjusting to missionary life. In the time I have been here my testimony and love for the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ has grown so much! I know the Gospel I preach his true.
I called Francisco to confirm an appointment with him, turns out i called the wrong Francisco, I actually called the JW Francisco that we met with the week before, so we found ourselves with another meeting with him, We explained the Book of Mormon how it is another testament of Jesus Christ and was translated by the Gift and power of God and that no man could have written it. I said, -Look this book is from God or the Devil. I want to show you 3 verses Mosiah, Helaman and Moroni then i asked him does this invite you to become closer to God or the Devil. The answer is clear, the book is from God not the Devil, Satan would not bring forth scripture that invites up to come closer to Christ because as the bible says, "A house divided against itself can not stand". I then said if this book is not from God it will be easy to find the faults so i offered him the book to read, study and prove to me that it is false....He tried to give us 24 pages of anti mormon literature, we tried to make a swap for it with the book of mormon, But he didnt accept it haha we ended up giving his the questions of the soul of the Book of Mormon that he accepted to read and we took the anti mormon papers. I skimmed through them and found it so interesting that people blast the Book of Mormon from all angles and reject it saying it is from man without ever opening and reading it for themselves. I later let him know that those papers did nothing to shake my testimony and that I know that the Book of Mormon is true.
My accent still has a little ways to go. Every once in a while people say that they cant understand me, so i decided to start playing the joke back, people like to practice their English with us (I can understand it) but yesterday I said that I didn't understand what he was saying until he spoke in Portuguese haha.
