Hello family and friends! 

So this week was really good. It has been a good one, just tired! I am trying to think of things that happened but nothing is coming to my mind! Oh here are some weird things that happened
  • A guy asked me to give him a blessing, just knelt down on the ground in the middle of the street and asked me to give a blessing to him! Haha I was like, ummm, que dios le bendiga, haha and patted his head, and he was really happy and then left. So weird!
  • It’s been raining and really cold these past few days actually! Which I realized I really like the sun, things are just happier and people actually want to talk when their is sun!
  • We had a normal Sunday, it was good! had 2 investigators come to church and a couple of less actives. Nobody really came to church though, it was raining. 
  • I am TIRED but good!
  • Wow, I have 15 months in the mission. What the heck?
I really love this time though in the mission.}

Oh, cool experience, we taught this lady Maribel. She has just been through so much. She was the wife of a bishop and then she split from him. She knows she screwed up and she made mistakes, but she really wants to come back. She knows its going to be hard and she needs to change, but she is ready. It’s incredible to see people who are prepared, who have a desire to follow Christ because at times that’s all they have. Her oldest son committed suicide and her first husband also, she has gone through a lot. but she knows she needs to get back, she needs to get her life together. So we had a lesson which was just powerful, man she was crying and just felt the sprit So strong. 

It’s the spirit. The spirit is the teacher. The sprite is the comforter. That’s the key, we need the spirit not only as missionaries, but in every day. We need to be worthy of the spirit, and to listen and act on the promptings of it.

I love this gospel. It’s been such a privilege to be here, and to learn soo much. And I know I will keep learning so much more. I love you all, God loves you all, have a great week!!!!
