This week was a good week! Yesterday we had a cool activity that we planned with the ward! We had jeopardy, charades, and some other games to build more unity! Everything was connected to the gospel! A lot of members showed up so that was good! The bishop was really content with how well everything went! Also this week we found a new investigator named Reyna. She's awesome! She hurt her knee a while ago and hasn’t been able to walk well so she hasn’t worked which means she doesn’t have money. We went to read the Book of Mormon with her and asked if she needed anything and she told us that she hadn’t eaten anything all day. So thankfully there's a little store on every corner here in Mexico and we bought her food! It was really cool and then we read with her and she ended up going to church yesterday, wahoo!!
Spiritual Thought Of The Week
Last Monday we did a family night with Freddy and Rebeca and we talked about patriarchal blessings, man those things are cool! As I was thinking I thought that our patriarchal blessings could be blessings that God personally gave to every one of us before we were born. Thinking of it like that made it seem even more special. We come to this earth and forget everything, but God gives us a chance to have our personal blessings given to us again here so we remember them. Patriarchal blessings are a road map in our life and they also give us a lot of motivation to endure to the end and be obedient to achieve all of our blessings. It reminds me how much my Heavenly Father loves me and I love reading my blessing to be able to study my personal scriptures. I love you all and hope you all can study your blessings often! Have a great week!
