OKAY!!!! This week has
been so so so so so good!! We´ve just been finding a ton of miracles by talking
to everybody that comes in our pathway and I love it so much! I am so grateful
that I am still doing missionary work here because it makes me SO HAPPY!!!
Okay, here are a few
Friday- The Spirit
guided us so smoothly to a house and we didn´t even realize it until we were at
their front door. My companion said "Let´s contact this house" So we
walked up and the front door was open and there was a picture frame that said
"Family together forever" In English jajaja! So I started freaking
out and we were so pumped and we clapped out front (ps the house was really
really realllllllly nice) and one of the house workers came out and was being a
little sassy when we talked to her but all the sudden the dad came out! YES! He
was wayyyy nice and open and loves Christ and his family and we talked to him
about the picture frame and how families can be together forever and he was way
pumped and we have an appointment with them this week and I am peeing my pants
because it´s way scary talking to rich people here because they literally never
let us in!! He gave us his cellphone number and everything jajaja. After we
left we were both so dang happy and we thought about how the spirit guided us
there and it was so cool.
RASBAND CAME TO OUR STAKE CENTER AND WE GOT TO SHAKE HIS HAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay it was just one big spiritual bomb. He was there with some other area
seventies and Elder Christensen from the Presidency of the 70. They all talked
to us but Elder Rasband talked for like an hour and it was so good. He talked
to us about how we can do more. He said that President Hinckley is famous for
saying "Do your best" but he was in a meeting with him one time and
President Hinckley said "We have to do our very best" He explained it
way cooler than I can in this email, but he talked to us about how we have to
give the best of our best to the Lord always. We´re not perfect but it´s what
the Lord deserves from us and we can always do more. If we are true disciples of
Christ, we have to give all we have to building up His kingdom. SUCH A COOL
DAY. And we were there with all the missionaries from our mission and the other
mission in Paraguay so it was way cool!
Sunday- We had 2
investigators in church!!!! One named Andres that is like 70. He was just a
random street contact that we gave a pamphlet to and he came to church holding
onto that pamphlet for dear life!!! He was really excited and learned a ton. We
showed him the baptismal font and he wants to get baptized so obviously we´re
going to help him with that! We also had another named Dagne! She´s 17 and went
to young womens and loved it! She´s really cute and the other Hermanas are
working with her! Her dad is really Catholic and has some problems with her
going to a different church but we´re trying to teach him too!
So all in all it´s
been a way good week! We are so happy and excited to keep doing the best of our
Okay this week was
crazy! But way good! Just a ton of spiritual feeding! We had an area 70 come to
our stake conference and it was way spiritual and I got a ton of my questions
about life answered! He talked to us a lot about the power of fasting and doing
our fast the right way. There is so much power that comes from putting of
natural man things and giving ourselves more to God. God is so good to us and
gives back to us wayyyyy more than we deserve. I have really felt that this
I just got out of my final
interview with my mission president and it was so sweet to talk about the
experiences I have had in the past (almost) year and a half. The Lord has taken
what I´ve offered Him and given me so much more. It´s really cool what the Lord
can mold us into when we just give ourselves to Him!
I love my mission so
much! I am really excited to just enjoy the last few weeks!!! Not trunky though
jajajaja Have a great week!
This week has been so great!
I love my new comp so much! We get along really well and she is the sweetest,
Transfers were really crazy
because we had to help the 3 hermanas that left our house and get the 3 new
ones. But after a lot of taxis and colectivo rides, we are good! We live with
two other Hermanas, Hermana Basile from Argentina and she is training a brand
new missionary from Manti. Hermana Cluff. We all get along great and we are
having a lot of fun! The Argentines are trying to change my accent though and
idk how to feel about that....
We wear pants now!!!
Jajaja it´s weird and fun. But it rained a lot this week so it was nice to put
my rain boots on with some pants!
We had to go help an
hermana this week that has chicken pox jajajaja. Her and her companion didn´t
have enough food to last them through the week because they didn´t plan for
chicken pox so we had to go to their area about an hour away and help them buy groceries
jajaja it´s an adventure being an hna leader sometimes.
Well to be honest this
week was really stressful, I am stressed and happy for a lot of reasons but
it´s a good stress I think¿ We had our leadership council for the transfer and
a lot of things were changed and it´s been hard to try it out because I have
been so used to doing things differently for my whole mission. I´m trying to
have a good attitude and make the changes as best as I can because I know that
they come from the Lord and they are what will make the mission better...I
guess it´s just hard to teach an old dog new tricks?? But nothing is
impossible!!! I´m really happy and enjoying everything that´s going on here!
has been pretty chill
and that is such a blessing! We aren´t dying of heat...yet.
I have felt a lot of
the Lord´s love and guidance this week while it´s been stressful and hard and I
found myself really grateful on my knees last night. It´s the best feeling
knowing that we have a Savior that loves us and will take care of us
especially when we turn to Him and do His will. If we let that happen in our
lives, we will be blessed far more than we could have ever imagined. It´s been
the best learning experience here in Paraguay.
Have a great
Ponderize: D&C 88:41
Randomely opened to this scripture and it helped me a ton!
Hey! Things are crazy
right now. We just found out our transfers and my companion is leaving. I will
probably be crying for days, or months. But we don´t have time for that hahaha.
My new companion will
be Hermana Rojas from Argentina! She´s way cute and has about a year in the
mission! I am really excited, we are going to have a ton of fun!
Also, Hermana Sweat
and Hna Sosa are both leaving the area and we are getting two new Hermanas here
so I am way excited!!!
We are in the first
week now of my last transfer and I am peeing my skirt. It´s blazing hot and
there´s a ton of work to do and I am really excited! We´re just praying for our
investigators to go to church so if you guys could pray for that too, that
would be AWESOME!
Have a great week!
Thanks for all the love and support.
