Elder Jordan Saunooke ~ Trigo y Cizaña ~ 2/20/17

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto mawhich sowed good seed in his field:
 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow gooseed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
 28 He said unto them, An enemhath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
 30 Let both grow together until the harvestand in the timof harvest will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

This week was a very good week and very tiring. I have been thinking a lot of the parable of the wheat and the tares lately because we have lots of days of just door to door looking for new investigators and so we happen to find lots of tares... but we have been able to find 3 new investigators this week that seem to have potential. 

We had interviews with President Ruiz on thursday and I truly love having him as my mission president. He is such a great man and example to me. That night we met with Maria (one of our investigators) and she has a lot of doubts about the different churches but we explained the message of the Restoration and read 1 Nephi 8 and she had zero doubts afterward. We did divisiones with Bishop Tek and Brother Adrian Moya that night so that we could help out with family history in the ward with the youth and wow I honestly do feel way older now and when I see the youth it seems like that was a long time ago. It is interesting to be on the other side of activities. Adrian left me for like 20 mins and i didnt know it hahah but it was funny when he came back and I was like hey what happened to being my companion! He is a return missionary and actually served in this mission. 

On Friday I interviewed a sister that was the investigator of the sister trainers and it was a very neat experience. I love meeting with the people that are ready to take that exciting step in their lives to come unto Christ. 

On saturday we got up early and went and painted a recent converts house at 7 in the morning which was lots of fun, and we didnt have to be in the sun. That day we walked a ton and were able to find a new really good investigator that is 17 years old, that accepted a baptismal date the first visit. We got home that night exhausted and the next day when we woke up it felt like a train had hit us. 

Yesterday we had hermano Edgar come with us and he accompanied us for 6 hours!! The sister who was supposed to give us food yesterday told us she wasnt going to be able to and so she gave us money... hahaha money to buy food on the sabbath dayXD Bishop Tek invited us over last night for pancakes and we found out last night the changes or in english i guess that would be transfers. My companion Elder Zurita went to Ticul Sierra to train and be district leader and my new companion here in Tanlum is Elder Roa from the Dominican Republic. He is a really cool guy and I think we will have lots of fun this change.

Love you guys all tons and hope you have a great week!!
Elder Jordan Saunooke
