Letter from January 16th, 2012

This week has been interesting. My companion is the other zone leader and a really good missionary.  I am in the Zone with Elders Lewis, Smith, and Fearnley as District Leaders. I know all of them from beforehand (Elder Fearnley was also in the coast with me) but I don´t know any of the other Elders very well. Maipú is a big zone with 3 districts, which isn´t normal in this mission. It also looks like we might be getting a lot of new sectors opened in this zone because of all the new missionaries who are arriving.

We had a cool experience with a lady we are teaching named Lucy. She is an active Evangelical but has been reading the Book of Mormon. When we passed by to teach her the other day, she said that she had commented in her church during a women´s meeting that she had been receiving us in her house. A lot of the other women started saying that we worship a prophet and that she needs to trust in God, among other things. Instead of getting scared, she defended us and said, "They have taught me a lot about God and Jesus and nothing about worshiping a prophet." That was a really cool experience. We are hoping to have more progress with her soon.

Well, that is all for today. Hopefully you liked the story for this week.

Elder Taylor Thomas
