April 18, 2016

It was a great week full of lots of inspiration. I loved the feelings I felt in the temple, and the special thoughts I received preparing for the Zone meeting and participating in the multi zone. 

We are very happy that we were able to see the zones first fruits this week with a baptism and a rescue. Its a great start, although it was in the third week of the transfer. The zone is just on the edge of exploding, we need that little extra push. The multi-zone helped us to have fresh ideas that we are applying in our area and we are inviting the rest to do as well. The elders and sisters are doing well and working hard, we have complete assurance that we will see the fruits of our labor very soon.
This week we saw a miracle. We received a reference by text message. We went to the house to find her but only her aunt was home, so we contacted her aunt and we took out an appointment with her for Saturday. We returned Saturday and asked for her aunt, not home, so we asked for the original reference again and she was there. It was perfect that we took the visit out with her aunt at just that time because we were able to find Vilma. She is awesome, we taught her and she came to church the next day. Very prepared. This work is amazing. The spirit really does guide you. 

Elder Lambson :)


How have you felt the blessings of the Lord in your life? In absolutely everything. I have been so humbled. I know that he lives.

What's your favorite thing about your mission so far? Seeing the progress of the people that we find, seeing the changes that the Lord makes in them from when we first meet them to after they have revived the light.

How are your feet/shoes doing with all the walking? Its such a blessing that my shoes have stayed in such good shape! After all of the walking, all of the stairs and hills. Its a testimony that quality counts.

Can you buy most things that you need? Yes, everything. There are little stores on almost every street, and there are also some big super markets in almost every zone.
What exercising do you guys do every day?
My favorite exercise to do in the morning is play soccer with the zone, we try to play at least twice a week. And when we don't play soccer I do my own exercises like run in place, push ups, sit ups, etc.

WHAT'S YOUR RELEASE DATE?! Good question. The 21st of June I believe,  I will  be getting home Saturday the 25th.

April 12, 2016

We went to the temple this week. It was beautiful. The zone is doing really really good!! We are super united and we are all working hard and pressing forward together. We did some service this week sanding walls and painting, and we are playing soccer in the mornings with the Elders!

We had a really great week finding new investigators in our area this week.One is the girlfriend of a member who lives in the south of Lima, they met each other through work and he has been sharing the gospel with her. They went out the other week and stopped by the temple, he told her to pray and think about the blessings that God has given her in her life. That night she had a dream that God was inviting her to go up beautiful white stairs and she felt that this was the right path she needs to take right now in her life.

Another family we met by saying hi while headed to another visit, we started talking to them and they told us that their brother had a stroke and he was bedridden but in the house. We gave him a Priesthood blessing and we were able to share the plan of salvation with the family :)

Another is a family of 5, the parents are married, and the 3 children are teenagers, open and willing to change their lives. They are the aunt, uncle, and cousins of a young man who accompanies us. His grandma died a few weeks ago and has opened the families eyes to receive the missionaries and the Gospel after many years.

God is blessing us so much, and at the same time blessing his sons and daughters here giving them this amazing opportunities to listen to the Gospel and have the blessing to repent and be clean! We are visiting many families here and are praying for their progress.

God knows his children, everyone can be a chosen, but the beautiful thing is the timing. If we are in tune with the Spirit, God will allow us and lead us to those who he has prepared in the specific time that they are ready. Thats the great trick of the mission. Being in the right place at the right time through the guidance of God. We have to be his humble, worthy, and prepared servants in every moment! Let the spirit guide you!! Have an amazing week!

April 4, 2016 - 77 days until Elder Lambson's release date

My new companion is from Chihuahua, Mexico! His name is Elder Moreno. He is so cool haha. We are working together for a week now and we have already seen so many miracles. He came here for an emergency transfer just 3 weeks before the transfer, so both of us are learning the area haha. But the Lord is definitely guiding us, we found 9 new investigators to teach this week and they are all so solid!

We got to go back to Vitarte on Saturday to see D's Baptism. She is such an amazing convert. Wow, I'm never going to forget her. 

I loved conference. It was extraordinary. I felt like the messages were EXACTLY what I needed. The reaction was awesome in general conference,(to the announcement of a new Temple)  everyone yelped with happiness for the new temple. The current temple is on the east, I'm pretty sure the 2nd one will be in the north.
