Elder Reinstein Week 53
The week passed well, and a lot of it was spent in the office in preparation for some special visits we have coming in the next few weeks. Yet, amidst all the work inside, we still had some spiritual gems in the field.
We visited Gu and Ines again this week, and I am humbled by the excitement he has to come back into full activity. (As a side note, I found his teaching record from 2009, on his record of his reading it said he read all of Exodus because he was curious to learn more about Moses.) We taught the Book of Mormon, and before we finished, he brought the entire family to the table, opened the all the copies of the Book of Mormon and said, “We have to start reading as a family right now!” We quickly closed the lesson so 1. We could get home on time; and 2. So they could have that opportunity.
We got to do a division with two young adults in the branch yesterday, and I spent the whole evening with Roque, who is quite the character. After we taught a new lesson, he was exclaimed how his whole body was bursting with the Spirit. “Wait, is this how you guys feel all the time?!” Yes Roque, it is how we feel all the time.
I can’t believe how imaginably blessed I am to be able to serve the Lord and this people with these missionaries and this President 24/7. There really is no other mission like Mozambique. We work our tails off, but the blessings are exponentially returned. It’s just one small testimony of the veracity of this Work.
