January 12, 2015

we had Zone meeting on my birthday!!, so good. i learned so much and felt so pumped and ready to work!! i am so grateful to be here.
I felt so loved this week! Thank you for all the letters and packages, and LOVE. I'm so grateful to be here on my mission, and to have made it to age 20! I'm so old!!
The members are so sweet, we had an awesome dinner, and lots of cake and goodies:)

We've been visiting a girl named Jenna, she's about 30 something and she's in the hosptial, she's an alcoholic and it's killing her.. She's been there for about a week, and she now has developed pneumonia, and the flu. We visit her quite often, and we sing hymns for her and share our favorite scriptures. it is a miracle, and it was such a happy day because we asked her if the next day we visit her, we could bring her anything she needed? and she said, a Book of Mormon.

it was amazing. we brought it over to her, and she was so excited! she wanted to know all about it, and prophets and how god hears our prayers and how we can receive answers! it was amazing. i feel so blessed to have a testimony of my Heavenly Father and that i know he hears me, and that he answers me. 

i have noticed, He answers us through others. when we meet the needs of others, we learn something, and its always what we need. 
i am so grateful to be serving! 
i am learning so much, and i know we don't have to feel inadequate. i know he has a plan for every single one of us, and he is helping us every step of the way. we are never alone :)

it was kind of a hard week, with a bunch of meetings and car troubles, we had just a little time to actually work. 

"I have often said one of the greatest secrets of missionary work is work!"-Ezra Taft Benson.
^RT i testify of that :)

so sunday, all our plans changed and it was a craazy day, so we decided to visit this potential, jose.
he wasnt home-but his three roomates, ernesto andres and diego were.
we taught them the restoration, and the spirit was so strong! i dont thinkive ever felt the spirit that strong, and ive ever noticed His Help that much. i know if we study and ask god for help, he will bless us, and he WILL help us. 
i am so grateful to be here, learning so much and to be able to truthfully testify, and to WANT to help others come unto Christ. 
those men accepted our invitation to be baptized.
this day made this hard week so much better! 

when we include god and the spirit in our lives, we become so much happier:))

i love you all have a happy weeeek!!!!(:

fun fact of the week:
i may or may not have told a man that once he gets baptized he can marry two women..
we had a good laugh..#myspanishprobs.
