First off, I just want to say that this letter would have more emotion in it, it's just that this keyboard is half broken. So just imagine half of this with exclamation marks and questions marks, k. k. Haha
Anyways, life here in Paraguay is pretty splendid. And by splendid I mean super hard work and hot days and awesome experiences and seeing miracles and working even though I'm exhausted and having the time of my life. Haha all up and down. But normal mission life right?Right.
Hmm, theres really not much to report on for this week. Lots of walking, lots of lessons, and lots of feeling the spirit. That about sums it up haha.
But I do want to share something that we have been highlighting on this week. I feel like every week we unintentionally have a theme. This week we talked a lot about peace and having peace through difficult times and sometimes even not difficult times. In Romans 5:1-2 it walks about how and why we have peace. We can have peace with the knowledge that no matter what we do, the Savior has atoned for us and we dont have to be perfect to have peace and to be happy or loved. I know that my Savior loves me always. In Romans 8:38-39 It says that He will always love us no matter what and that is backed up in 2nd Nephi 1:15. I know that no matter how hard I try to be perfect, I will never succeed. We are not perfect beings. But I do know that the Savior has made up for that. He is the one who completes us. And through him we can be made perfect. With that knowledge we can have
Anyways, just something Ive been thinking a lot about this week and dying to share it. One family that is progressing and coming closer to Christ that I am really loving are Richard and Dominga and their girls. We want him to be baptized this Saturday but he wants to do it the next. So well see how that goes. But they also need to get married first. We are praying for a miracle. They dont necessarily want to get married but they both know the importance of baptism and the gospel. They are just the cutest little family and I am so blessed to be able to work with them.
Well, I love this gospel and I am so honored to be called as a representative of Jesus Christ. I am trying my hardest to do his work and not my work. To really put forth my full effort and preach his Gospel.
I love all of you and thank you for everything. I wish I could write every one individually, but just know that as I write this, I am thinking about everybody who has written me, blessed me, prays for me, and so much more. Thank you. I hope you have a wonderful week and let Christ lift you up.
Love, Hermana Wiscombe
