This week was really cool. I mean we contacted a whole lot like usual but we found 10 new people to teach and usually that's really hard but Im happy we met that goal! Nargila is getting baptized the 10th!! she's the best and is so prepared I love her. I love to see little miracles each week like God helping me get through the day when I get sick or someone saying they want us to come by again. Oh yea yesterday we taught this woman named Feli and she was the first person that has an amazed expression when we talked about Joseph Smith and she has so many desires to come to church and bring all her kids so that they can learn from a young age to love God. She lives by the hill and thats really far from church but next sundaywe will pick her up! I love our area Colon. It has hills and city its awesome! But its cambios this next pday so we'll see if something happens. I dont want to leave but if I stay I have to stay till February so I dont know. God will decide what is best. This pday was our last one as a zone before cambios and Elder Smith is leaving so he wanted to have a waterballoon fight and have a barbecue. it was so much fun!! and we had yummy hot dogs :) I love the mission because not only do we see so many miracles each day but we make great friends. Im probably the happiest I've ever been so thank you for supporting me to come to the mission. I love you all.
I loved this scripture that I read this morning. It touched my heart because its true all we do is to let the world know Christ. I am truly excited for Christmas and to be able to walk the streets that day and share the message of our Savior. I hope we can have Him in mind this season. He is the reason we celebrate. Sorry for the Christmas talk so early. im just excited.
And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins 2 Nephi 25:26
So this week we worked hard to go to Inca Chaca
and we made it! So for today we went there and it was fun but the ride there and back each was 3 hours so we left like at 5am then got here just at 2pm. It was pretty much a hike with pretty landscapes and waterfalls haha but not much of a rest for pday ...
But something super awesome is that God makes miracles happen. I got to go back to my old area for Valerias baptism a girl we were teaching when I was in trio! Ah I was so happy to see her and her family again and the ward too. I love making good friends here its the best.
So Nargila our Brazilian young woman is progressing so much she came to church with us this Sunday!! wooo woo and she accepted a baptismal date for December! She is cute and sincere and said she feels good when she reads the book of mormon.
I loved the class on Sunday that talked about faith and testimony from Howard hunters life. My favorite quote was '' Life's greatest achievement is to know God and know that he lives'' that struck me because to me I feel I have always had a sense of knowlesge of that but it made me realize how many people on this earth have no idea of who he really is. That he is literally their father. It made me really think about the effort that I put into letting everyone around me know that.
hmm lets see what else ...oooh so funny thing that happened well everything has happened this cambio but while we were waiting for a trufi after our pension this past week my compi and I were both looking towards all of them to call the one we needed but I guess my compi called one of them without me noticing and she thought Isaw and walked after her but I didnt I was talking thinking she was still there and then I turn and she is GONE! I freaked out because we can never be apart from our companions haha so for a few seconds I didnt know what to do and turned all around to see if I saw her when I see a trufi stop a little forward and she sticks her head out hahah so I ran and got it but I bet to everyone we seemed weird its not the end of the world to leave a friend but for missionaries leaving a companion alone it is haha so we had a long laugh after that. oh yea and all week people told us about Donald Trump haha they were like did you hear did you know? ...ah yea we've heard haha
Hasta la otra amigos,
