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 highlights:
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.
Saturday- ELDER 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 best!
