September 19, 2016

This week was a good one! Lots of great things happening- HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WEEK 
We taught Monica (one of our Investigators) about the ley de castidad. She and her  "husband" (who is a member) have two kiddos.  She loves the idea and everything about the Ley de Castidad.  We also taught Yisel (who is also a member) They want us to help them plan a wedding so they can keep this commandment.  We would have Monica get married and then she can get baptized the same day or another day haha.  We also taught Pablo about the Dia de Reposo and he told us that he would never miss church again...AND he is still planning on going on a mission!  Hermana Scott and I are hoping he will go to the UNITED STATES! I gave him 3 packs of trial mix lol HE LOVES THEM SO MUCH!  He says he is in love with them and when he finishes the package he wants to cry cause it is so good.  We also have a new Investigator Maria!  We taught her about the Restoration and BOY! The Spirit was SO strong!  We visited the Shiray family and talked about testimonies.  The lesson we had with them was very inspired.  We had a testimony meeting.  Bearing their testimonies was a great thing for them.  The spirit was so strong! We are hoping they will attend church.  We had a lesson with Maria, her sister, her mom, and Arnaldo.  We read in the Libro de Mormon.  When Hermana Scott was saying the closing prayer one of the baby chicks they have tried to fly onto my lap! I accidentally kicked it hahaha (completely a reflex) it scretched a bit hahaha oops.  We sure had a great laugh with them.  Maria also gave Hermana Scott and I a WHOLE BUNDIN!!!!! It is SOOOOOO RICO!!!!!! We also got to talk with Hermana Cardozo, her two boys, and Shirley.  We read chapter 3 Nephi 11.  It was a good reminder for all of us to reflect on..are we are prepared to meet Jesus?  We had a lesson with Mikeas and his mom! We found out that she was baptized.  We taught them about the importance of prayer.  We visited Marilyn and met her TWIN sister and their cousin Richard.  We had a good time.  They were like, we have so many sins, that is why we don't go to church.  We were like everyone has sins, no one is perfect.  We have the Atonement for a reason.  They are going to pray that their jobs change.  
I am going to send a picture of me on a Marilyns motorbike.  Dont worry I didn't ride it....just took a picture on it ;) mission rules! We had such a great day on Sunday!  Yisel attended a bit of Sacrament Meeting along with her daughter, Monicas son (Monica didnt go this week cause she is with her mom in the hospital)  and Jessicas daughter.  She is 9 so we are hoping to have a baptismal date set with her.  She loves this gospel.  First Monica, now Yisel!  Hoping they all come next week.  Also CRAZINESS!!!!! We have a new Investigator Fanciso who is an orphan but lives with Maria Lousia - WHAT????? Anyways he stayed all 3 hours of church and we taught him the plan of salvation a little later in the day.  Maria and her son joined.  Also Maria and Arnaldo accepted to be baptized on October 22nd.  I wonder if I will stay in San Jorge this next transfer. We will see! We also were able to teach Belen....well visit.  She is having a hard time and I received revelation that we needed to talk to her about attending the Temple. The last time she attended was in March.  We set a date with her.  She is going this SATURDAY!  We told her she will feel peace and find answers to her problems if she attends.  
We also had noche de hogar with the Encina Family.  The spirit was so strong and took control.  We talked about sincere prayer.  We mentioned how life is difficult, but with faith and putting God and Jesus Christ first we can be happy and overcome challenges.  They always have there arms extended.  The answers come, but when we are ready.  Life is full of trials, but is sure a blessing.  We have many experiences to learn from.  Also another thing we contacted and found a house with a family who have all been baptized.  We are going back to reactivate them for sure.  I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TELL EVERYONE BACK HOME HELLO! So exciting about Matthew Smith!

Anyways, it is always fun to hear from you, and I wish you as well as your companion safety. So have a good week!
