I dont even know where to start!
This week has been blessed. We had 8 people at church and we finally met all of our weekly goals! I love how God is teaching me so much each day and how I am gaining a testimony of obedience and prayer. I have learned that specific prayers bring specific answers. and when we are obedient we see miracles.
Ronnie is really a miracle he is a less active of 30 years but he is now ready to come back and his desires to learn and serve are amazing. He lets us teach his teenage kids Alejandro wants to know if God is real and if the message we teach is real and he is willing to pray and he understands he needs to have faith. People amaze me because they are just so ready to learn. God really does prepare his children. Of course there is always those who straight out say '' I dont talk to missionaries'' and worse things but its ok because what we as missiionaries go through is nothing compared to what our Savior did.
“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
I have come to understand also that we dont need to know all things. Sometimes people ask me how do you know you know ... I just do. Its a personal thing its something I have come to feel. 1 Nephi 11:17 ''I know that he loveth his children; nevertheless I do not know the meaning of all things''
''Testify of what you know to be true or hope to be true. There may be more power in your testimony than you realize.'' I learned this from a talk by Elder Holland haha
These are some pictures of my district I love that we are all laughing haha ah such goofs and then a ''cool'' picture we tried to do while contacting and so here 3 times a yaer they do a ''dia del peaton'' or pedestrian day so no one uses cars everyone walks!! I mean its like dia de peaton for us everyday but anyway everyone was so happy and then we saw sheep walking down the street!! WE tried to pick one up to hold it above our shoulders but that didnt work out haha
