God is protecting us.

Upe Buenas!

After a few scares this week, I just have to say that God truly
protects his missionaries and I feel peace. We never ever need
to be scared, because fear is a tool of Satan that he uses so that we
don't carry on God's work. :)

This week we had a lot of scary moments.
Two men followed us on Thursday, and  fear was entering into
us. But then we called President Laboriel and he gave us council.
After taking the sacrament, I feel completely filled with peace and we
feel safe. Now we just have to be home at 8 instead of 9 every night
and we are working with members at night so that nothing happens to

This is not to freak you out or anything but
we were robbed on Friday. We weren't harmed at all. 

We were walking home and a man jumped out of nowhere and acted like he had a gun behind his back but he really didn't. And he said...the phone the
phone... and I told him that we were missionaries. When he saw that we were missionaries he started to shake and tremble and then asked for our money. He took both mine and Hermana Flores' wallets. 

But here is the miracle. MY WALLET WAS FOUND. It had my drivers license and my bank cards and some documents but he didn't take them, just the little bit of money that was inside. It was a miracle. I know that God is protecting me.

Something happened this week that gave me so much joy. Laura's sister
Maria came to live with her. Laura is one of our recent converts. I
adore this family. The first thing that I thought when I saw Maria is
that I felt like I knew her. She is 19 and very fun. We started
teaching her and that whole lesson the Spirit was so strong. My hairs
on my arms were standing straight up the whole time. We asked her how
she felt and she said that she couldn't explain it. We talked about the
fruits of the Spirit and she was super excited and
said....I feel that! I feel that! 

 We invited her to be baptized and I was going to say the baptism date for
October, when all of a sudden the date September 19 popped out of my
mouth. Her eyes kind of bugged out of her head but she said she would
do it. She said that something was driving her to say yes. Such a miracle! A
special part of this experience was that Laura was sharing her
testimony and how it was so special to receive the Holy Ghost. We gave
her something to read, and when we came back, she not only had read
it, but took notes. And what impressed me is that Laura explained the
Great Apostasy! That took me like my whole life to understand that!
haha. Such happiness. I have seen such changes in her in such a short
time. God is a God of miracles! He truly touches peoples hearts and
helps them find peace and understanding. They went to church this week
and loved it.

We had an awesome testimony meeting in church. There is a hermano
that we have been working with that has been inactive for years and
years and he got up to bear his testimony. He is a rapper and his
testimony sounded like a rap. It was so heartfelt and special and I
wanted to dance and cry. 

All in all, I felt so full of joy!
I love missions because you get to love so many people and you feel
like jumping for joy at any progress big or small. It makes me think
about how happy Heavenly Father is when we choose the right. :) 

This week we met an awesome
Jewish family who explained their culture and religion and it was so
interesting. At the end of the lesson, they gave us a special Hebrew
prayer and I thought it was so beautiful.

My heart had problems yesterday. I couldn't
sit down because I felt really antsy. But today I feel good. My feet hurt a lot 
and I can't find those inserts to put in my shoes...all my shoes broke. The shoes here a soooo expensive. 

ps. We moved houses again. haha. 3rd house I've lived in here in Tejar!

ps. I had a dream that we were in a big mission meeting and they told
me I was going to train. I was sooo excited and then they told me i
would be training an ELDER!! haha it was horrible. 

Love you and thank
you for your prayers!!
