Elder Pincock's Update for Feb. 2nd, 9th, and 16th

February 2nd, 2015

This week went awesome, but super fast with the trip to Huancayo. I left Tuesday and came back on Thursday. We had the conference Wednesday, and got to play soccer Wednesday night which was a ton of fun! We had a good team and won a lot! haha

 I got to see some other missionaries that I haven't seen in a while which was nice getting to catch up with them. 

The conference went great, and it was great hearing President Henderson speak.

 The weather has been nice this week in Ambo, and has been raining a little less which is nice since I don't have am umbrella... We had another successful week and have a few investigators that are starting to progress which is awesome. 

We've also been having a lot of success with less actives that have been coming back to church and we're working the bishop the get them all callings as soon as possible. The training with my companion is going well, and he's starting to get the lessons down and adjust more and more to the life of a missionary.

 I hope yall have a good week love and miss you tons!

Hola Amigos,

This week has been another good one here in Ambo.  We've been having more and more success with investigators which makes me so happy.  It's been a while since we've had people that progress and I've definitely been able to see how the Spirit has been guiding and directing us these past few weeks. 

The family that is progressing, the Trujillos, are doing great.  We've started helping them with their documents for their wedding.  The brother of our pension works in the "municipalidad" and is helping us out a ton with the whole wedding process which has been great.  

The best experience we had this week was being able to teach the dad of our pension's husband who hasn't listened to the missionaries for over 10 years.  I'm not really sure what changed, but we got his confidence and now he is reading The Book of Mormon.  He has received the two first lessons and has been accepting everything, which has been great.  

My companion went to Lima yesterday, so I'm with one of the young men as my companion until tomorrow afternoon.  Things are going great here in the mission field.  Transfers are this week, but I highly doubt I'm getting transferred until I finish training Elder Valencia.  

I love and miss you all tons. Hope you have a great week!

Love Elder Pincock

Hola Amigos,

Another great week in Ambo! The family Trujillo has a date for their wedding and baptism March 7th.  We've been working better with the ward counsel in helping them prepare and make all the plans for their wedding and baptism, which has been working great because there's no way we could do all of it alone. 

Rihanna's Birthday (Daughter of our Pension Family)

I had a good personal experience this week while reading in Alma 13:3-4. 

And this is the manner after which they were ordained—being called and prepared from the foundation of the world according to the foreknowledge of God, on account of their exceeding faith and good works; in the first place being left to choose good or evil; therefore they having chosen good, and exercising exceedingly great faith, are called with a holy calling, yea, with that holy calling which was prepared with, and according to, a preparatory redemption for such.
 And thus they have been called to this holy calling on account of their faith, while others would reject the Spirit of God on account of the hardness of their hearts andblindness of their minds, while, if it had not been for this they might have had as great privilege as their brethren.

 I could almost see a little bit of who we were in the premortal life, and it just encouraged me even more to try and serve the best mission I possibly can and be faithfull to all the promises I made in the pre-earth life.

 It was a really powerful scripture to me and gave me more courage to do the best I can here in the mission. It helped refortify my testimony of The Book of Mormon, and I know our testimonies need to always be growing and getting stronger every day of our lives. 

The Book of Mormon has really changed my life here in the mission, and I have no doubt that it's true. It's helped me grow and come closer to God, and become a better person. 

I hope all of you are well this week, love and miss you all tons!
