This week went by too fast! It was a great week full of great experiences. First off while we were walking down a street I saw a lady with a HUGE fire and I walked past thinking "how cool- that's a huge fire"... BUT I felt I needed to go back so I went and talked with her. She was making tamales and I told her how much I LOVE TAMALES!! I helped her cut wood and while we were there we talked about the plan that God has for her. She accepted to hear more. Later that week we taught her about the plan and she said that it was beautiful and that she has never been baptized before and she wants to be.
We are currently teaching the grandaughter of MDC. She is really understanding the plan of salvation and understanding the need to follow it! M is inviting everyone on her street to listen to our message haha!! Thats SICK!!!
J got confirmed this week. She said she came back from something important to give us the food appointment on Saturday and also come to church! She is also inviting people to listen to our message which is so great because that will help her testimony grow.
We have alot of people we are teaching and I feel like they don't understand the importance of going to church. They feel like they can hear a message and thats all but they don't want to make commitments. As missionaries we are to help people make covenants NOT teach ONLY a beautiful message! That would make us like all the rest of the churches. We as missionaries invite people to make covenants and help people to achieve the goal!
I'm so happy about how the cowboys are doing!!! They are doing great! Even though Tony Romo is my favorite QB they are doing amazing right now without him! Bittersweet choice!
I love you so much! I'm glad everyone is doing great! 50 more days until I get to see you (call on Christmas) haha! I'm glad the halloween bash went great! I know this church is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon with the Bible are powerful tools to use to gain more knowledge!
Have a great week!
