|The Nativity outside the Santiago Temple|
This week was fun. We found lots of people to teach, but none of the new people we found came to church, unfortunately. The Ecuadorian family is impossible to find.....oración no más.
Funny story. We were out contacting on a local street when the Jehovah's Witnesses crashed the party. We went a little further down the road because the Chileans go on lockdown as if the mafia were outside when the JW's are out. Nobody will come to the door for hours after they hit up a street.
So we went a little farther and BAM! - they started coming from the other side of the street. It was an ambush! End of the story. (It was really funny when it happened.)
Learned something cool, too. Joseph Smith wrote that faith is a principle that is cultivated and used through actions, but more specifically through words.
When Jesus said let there be light, and there was light.
Every ordinance of the gospel uses a prayer or words.
Find me a miracle that Jesus performed without praying or saying words.
Therefore, the way to cultivate faith is by preaching the Gospel. Get out and share the gospel!
