Hello my Friennds and Family that are so awesome and read my emails. So this week was pretty interesting and great at the same time. So I was able to go on some divisions this week and it was a lot of fun. I always learn so much from the missionaries in my Zone i think thats my favorite part about being able to do divisions. Also our Recent convert Victor is doing so well. He is really getting into his book of mormon reading. We are also working with 2 more of our investigators to be baptised at the end of this month so I hope that goes well. I mostly just feel so much love from my area and the members here. They all invite us over for food and ask if they can go out to do visits with us and that always helps out a lot. I know Jesus Christ is our savior and he is perfect and the way he worked he came to do all righteousness and that he didnt come to be popular but to preach. But I like that people in my area like me, that they make me feel loved. Its a time where I really do put all my problems on the back burner while I help others with their problems. Also this week was super awesome I got a picture with a monkey!!!!!! It was so cute and addorable. Im excited and there was a lot of beautiful scenary this time around. It also started getting cold finally. So its a nice turn of events.
Thanks to everyone for always youre support. Im also excited Happy Mothers day for every mom out there and that I get to skype my mom for the last time before i see her in person.
I stayed hooray!!! So I stayed in my area of Benjamin Aceval which I am excited about because its actually a really cool area. But my companion left. But this week was pretty excitiing in its own way. SO we had a lot of changes in our Zone and a lot of the missionaries here are super awesome so itll be a fun change. And We are working with 2 of our investigators who will hopefully be baptised this upcoming month. Oh okay so also before I forget we got to eat more lion this week haha. We ate lion epanadas which were pretty tasty so that was exciting. And turns out the Member really enjoyed my cooking so she asked me to make her son a Birthday cake for Sunday because she wanted to invite us over for lunch and for the small get together.
This has also been a tough time for me on the mission. I dont really understand a lot of things still. I struggle with a lot of faults and I try to keep getting better. I know that the mission is hard. But I really think of the promises and blessings we can receive from serving the Lord as well as serving our brothers and sisters.
I was asked to give the class this last Sunday where we studied the talk from General conference. it teaches us ways we can be the help and sustain for others. Little things like smiling and saying kinds words to others. And i started to think that fgor the past year and 8months i have put all of my problems to the side like they dont matter. And have been focusing on how do i help this person in front of me. And thats why I just want to keep coming back for more.
I know that this work is amazing. I hope I can keep being a usful insturment in the hands of my God my Heavnly Father.
Hello everyone well its that time of the week again. When this really weird annoying guy from Paraguay emails lol jk. But really hi. Well so another thing that has come around again is changes ahhhh. Tomorrow we find out who leaves who stays and stuff like that and I really want to stay so I hope everything works out the way it has to. This weekend we had a Baptism for our convert Victor Palma. He is this amazing young guy who works to help his mom provide for him and his 6 younger siblings. Victor is 15 and is sucha an example. How every morning he was woken up early to help his mother make her plant medicne she sells so he can attend church. He is so great. And I feel so blessed to have met him here in Benjamin Aceval. Im really Loving my area and it has been a lot of fun getting to know all these people. Oh we made Home made bread this week with one of our investigators it was a lot of fun and we also helped our recent converts make brooms because they make them and sell them for a living. So if anyone needs a broom let me know haha. but really though it amazes me how much these people make a living out of these talents they have. How the Husband goes out everymorning to cut dow branches and pick the twigs and the wife binds all of it together with rubber from used wheels. It was really a great experince for me to help them and learn how to make a broom. Oh also perks of being in the chaco a Sister in our Branch who gives us lunch of firdays fed us Lion?!?!?!?!?! WHAT!?!?!? I know it was very delicious. lol. Then I cooked this last friday because that was the deal she would make something crazy and if i liked i had to cook the following week haha. But after that deal i dont think ill be cooking for a while haha. But the scripture I have been ponderizing this week was Jacob 4:11 in the book of Mormon and it says.
11 Wherefore, beloved brethren, be reconciled unto himthrough the atonement of Christ, his Only Begotten Son,and ye may obtain a resurrection, according to the powerof the resurrection which is in Christ, and be presented asthe first-fruits of Christ unto God, having faith, andobtained a good hope of glory in him before hemanifesteth himself in the flesh
Thank You to everyone who emails me write me and remembers me. I Love yall soooo much and Hope to awlays hear from everyone. The count down is starting 4 months. August 11th!!
