Mom and Dad!
This week went by so so fast! I can't believe I hit 14 months in the mission. With our new area we are working hard with finding people to teach. We did a speacial fast to find people to teach and it was very successful. We found this lady named M and she is very receptive. She accepted baptism and accepted to come to church. This Sunday we tried to call ALL of our investigators to get them to church but no one was answering so I was a little mad and wanted someone so bad in church. I walked into the chapel and there sat Maria waiting for us! HALLELUJIA! I was so happy! She had a great time BUT the talks were horrible! UGH!!
Another miracle was we found out that there is a dry Mormon! She has been living with her boyfriend for forever and that is why she can't get baptized. I guess recently she isn't living with him and said that the only way we will get back together is if we get marrried because I'm getting baptized! WOW we thought she was a member but I guess NOT! We are going to start working with her on Thursday!
I read about the sacrament on Sunday before church. It really gave a lot of detail about the authority and blessing and why we take it and what it means. During the sacrament I reflected and pondered on what I read and I literally felt like the Holy Ghost just came and sat in my body bearing witness that this ordinance is true and that God is all about order in his church!
I bet you liked the video! I went on divisions and we had a great time! I had to give a baptism interview which was cool and very spiritual.
I'm so sad. I've always wanted to go to Def Leppard and see my favorite dude Rick Allen! WHY do you go to Alaska THEN a Def Leppard concert... are you trying to hurt me? hah a!! I bet it was SICK!
How about them cowboys!! Great to see them beat the skins! Glad to see them winning and hearing great news with this new quarterback! I hope he tears it up! If you could send me through email the game stats so at least I know how well the players are doing.
I got bit by a mosquito this week and I have a virus called Dengue or something like that. I get red polka dots all over my back and stomach and arms and legs! It doesn't hurt but its just wierd! haha
I love you so much!! I'm thankful for my family! I have alot of pride for you guys and everyone in Monterrey knows that. Have fun in Romania! Keep doing the small and simple things to bless the lives of others and yourselves!
