I am sooo happy for Cameron (mom will you send my letter to him..por fa ;) ).
So this week was packed.
I am traveling a lot more which has been fun to work in a lot of different
sectors. I love the misioneras in my group. It has been a lot of fun
working with them and seeing their unique strengths, talents, and ways
to work in the obra de salvación.
We celebrated pioneer day (24th) the traditional way...we walked a lot
haha. It is amazing to think in the faith that the pioneers had. They did
not know where Zion was exactly but they had faith that Heavenly Father
did. I feel like that sometimes as a missionary. We leave our apartment
in the morning praying that the Spirit will lead us to the people who are
honestly prepared to accept the gospel of Jesus Christ. Patience is an
atributo divino de Jesucristo.
I honestly can not think of a time in my life when I was so happy.
I like a quote that Dad wrote me a long time ago...but I use it a lot.
A mission is not a numbers game. Even when I do not have the best
`numbers` in the mission, if I have love for the people, confidence in the
atonement, and trying my best, Heavenly Father will do the rest. READ
Alma 26:31. I am so grateful for the patience that my Heavenly Father
has with me. We of all people, who know the gospel of Jesus Christ,
should be the happiest people of all. There is nothing to complain
about, because we have this hope and peace knowing that the plan
of God is perfect.
this scripture which I loved. Helaman 7:7-9. Basically for me this is
talking about the syndrome `the grass is greener on the other side`.
The only person with whom we can compare ourselves is our former
self with our current self, and our current self with Christ. I know I am
where I am for a reason.
Some awesome experiences happened this week, but they are toolong to tell in this letter. But I will share one experience super bacon
from this week. So we are passing by the old investiagadores (people
who listened to the missionaries before.) The last week, we talked
with a abuelita and she told us to pass by a different day. So this
week we passed by, but she was not there. But this man came out
and talked with us and told us to come in. When we went in there
was a group of his familiares. To put in better words, his cousin,
and his uncle who were there ended up being members. Everyone
are not active members, besides the uncle who is super active. We
were able to compart with them about the priesthood and the temple.
It was so awesome to see, that is was not chance, to have found
all of them together in the house of this abuelita. Heavenly Father
knows where we need to go and to be.
Love you guys a ton.
