Thanksgiving this year was definitely different. Working all day! Missionary life, right? But oh how I love being a missionary.
Anyways, this week there isn't too much to report on. Everyday, or every week we visit less active families. And there's a lot of them. Something that was going through my mind as we were teaching a mom, was do it for your kids at least! The gospel is so beautiful- helping us grow and learn in this difficult time and world. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the thing that can help us out the most in this life! More than money, work, school, hobbies, sleep. I know that all of these things are important but the gospel needs to come first! So I was thinking that at least she can do it for her kids! Be a good example, follow the savior. We had the primary program in our ward yesterday and it was just the sweetest ever. I love these kids! But it just built my testimony on how important it is that these kids are growing up in the church, built on good standards, learning the gospel at a young age. A scripture that I really like is 2 Nephi 25:26. It is really important that we are examples! To all you parents out there or soon to be, make sure the gospel is a major part of your family! And if you are not a parent, like me, do it for your future kids! Be grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ for your future family! I know that we can receive the most happiness from this!
We are teaching a little girl in the ward the lessons before she gets baptized... And she is so smart! I know the gospel can help us in EVERY aspect of our lives!
Not too much more... I find out tomorrow what is going to happen. If I stay in Molino or not. We will find out soon! I am secretly wishing to stay for at least one more transfer. Oh how I love this place and ward! There is a tiny little neighborhood in my area called Api. Its super tiny - one block by one block. But oh how I love that place! Everybody that lives there is straight from the Chaco. There are people that come from different tribes.. Chama-coco, gaurani, hache.. And I think a couple more. But they all speak chama-coco and its pretty cool! onapo num.. which means how are you, sister? We teach there a lot and I just love them! They all live in the humblest little homes. But they all are so kind.
Anyways, I hope all is well with everyone! I am doing just dandy!
Have a wonderful week!
Love, Hermana Liesel Wiscombe
