Well this was a good week! I hope all you mothers had a great day with lots of love yesterday! It was great being able to talk to my great family and I love them so very much! The next time I see them will be in the airport. How crazy is that! But ya, good week, haha. We had some cool experiences contacting. We knocked on a door and a lady came out really mad kinda and said “Aw I already know you guys you just want money.” I was like, uh no. So we offered her service and asked if there was anything she needed and she said she needed tortillas, so we asked where the closest tortillería was and went and bought her a kilo of tortillas. She obviously didn't know the missionaries, cause she was not expecting that we really were going to bring her tortillas! So when we showed up with tortillas she was in shock, haha, she changed completely and accepted us. So that was cool!
Spiritual Thought Of The Week
Well this week I’d like to talk about enduring to the end but with faith. Many times we are faced with opposition and we get discouraged. But that is part of life, we need opposition. Like it says in 2 Nephithat it is necessary that there is an opposition in all things. I have seen many times in my misión where things are not going my way and it would be easy to throw in the towel. But I always find that God always blesses me with something to be happy about and to motivate me to keep on pushing on. The scripture in Ether 12:6 defines my misión. “I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith.” We must act first with faith and then we will see miracles happen. Its like in exercise or when someone is learning a new thing you must struggle learning to be able to learn and move on. I know our Heavenly Father love us so much that He let us come to this earth to figure things out and to struggle a little and see that when we have faith everything turns out well. I love His plan and I love Him. Have a great week!
