Hi family :)
I loved the pics and kind words you sent me! Kel looks so cute! Marisi is homeeeeeeeee!
Well this week had the ups and downs as life always does. The first part of the week I felt a lot of anxiety after my companion left. But the Lord helped me and it's all going to be ok. Hermana Flores is really nice! She is my fourth companion that is Mexicana so I'm on a streak! She brought like fifty hot sauces and eats everything with chile. Normal ordinary sandwiches are turning into hot and spicy creations that Dad would definitely appreciate. hee hee. And she brought a lot of Mexican candy! woot woot! Its delicious. She also likes to sing and dance and is a pro at doing accents from Argentina, Mexico, Russia and the Tico accent. I love it.
We had some miracles this week. We prayed to find a family one morning and that day after searching and talking to everyone, we found a family who accepted us and accepted to be baptized. The mom is really sick but she said she wants to change her life. At the end of the lesson we were able to say a prayer kneeling down and it was really special.
Also can I just say the Book of Mormon has power?? We went to go visit the family whose son suffers from depression. Remember them? The parents were expressing their concern for their son and were really worried, and we were able to share from the Book of Mormon with them in Mosiah 4 where it talks about parents teaching their children in righteousness. It really calmed them down and there was a literal peace in the room. There really is so much power in using the Book of Mormon.
We got to see a broadcast from Elder Nelson transmitted from Honduras for all the missionaries in Centro America. It was awesome!! He talked about the importance of helping people enter the temple and focusing on helping people who have a connection to the church. And there was a talk that I loved about choosing to have joy. Happiness really is a choice. Everyday we should choose to have joy and we WILL. :)
I want to give you the challenge on helping less actives at church and inviting them to family night. It has POWER. It's the little things that make a difference.
Send me pics!
I love you and thank you for your prayers and support always!!
