I just want to start off saying that I hope everyone’s Mothers Day was fantastic! It was so much fun being able to talk to my whole family!
This week was a little harder for us because a lot of our lessons were falling through and we had to walk a lot (sometimes in the rain), but it was fine. We are still working really hard!
Awesome story for the week! We were in a lesson with Florencia talking to her about the plan of salvation. We talked to her about what is going to happen after death. It was really great! While we were teaching her, her aunt was in the room listening. And after we left, she texted us and asked us if we could give her a Book of Mormon cause she is interested. And she said that she wanted to know everything. I was so happy!! So we are going to go back this week and give her a Book of Mormon and start teaching her. And as for Florencia, she hasn’t been able to go to church yet, and its been hard to find her in her house, or she’s been busy, but we are still going to try to work really hard with her. Because she’s really excited about this gospel and I know that she can be baptized. Its just important that she is prepared and that she knows what she is doing beforehand.
We haven’t been able to find Familia Troya because the moms mom is really sick, so its so hard! I want to teach them so bad because they are such an amazing family! I’m prayng that we can see them this week.
This week my companion and I were able to do a service for someone! (we never get that chance). There was a lady walking on the street with a really big jug of water in one hand and soda in the other hand. And so I was like, "lets go help her!!" haha. So we did, and she actually let us help her! Which surprised me. She lived really far from where she was a she was a pretty old lady. I don’t know how she would have done it by herself. She said that we can go visit her whenever we want, so that’s awesome! She lives in a really tiny house and she’s really humble. Its really awesome being able to find and help new people.
Yesterday I gave a talk in church. I talked about the importance of the Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon is the only way that we can really know the doctrine of Christ. What He wants us to do. And I know that if we abide by these principles we will be able to reach eternal life. The time is NOW. The Book of Mormon is a gift that God has given us and He expects us to use it. We have the privilege of searching it every day! It has so many mysteries and its amazing how much we learn. I love this gospel so much!
Thank you all for your support and your prayers. They are really helping! I love you all!
