Busiest time of my mission 7/21/14

Thursday, March 3, 2016

Wow! What a weekend! The week was great, as always, but I had one of the busiest weekends of my mission. Honestly, this is the busiest time of my mission period. There is so much work going on because there are so many people who want to be baptized and the ward is really excited and sharing the gospel with everyone. Its so amazing! Anyway-

Monday- interviews with President Vasquez. I loved hearing his vision for the mission. He is very obedient to the promptings of the Spirit and he is making great plans to work more with our leaders to establish the Church. He also shared a beautiful example about the Atonement and the need of a Savior. It reminded me of how badly I want to hear the words that the prophet Enos describes on the day of Judgement

 27 And soon go to the place of my restwhich is with myRedeemer; for know that in hishall restAnd rejoice in theday when my mortal shall put on immortalityand shall standbefore him; then shall see his face with pleasure, and he will sayunto me: Come unto me, ye blessed, there is place prepared foryou in the mansions of my Father. Amen.

Tuesday- We found alot of prepared people that already know about the church by family or friends.

Wednesday- We are working with Jason, a returning members son who is preparing for baptism. The YM President Hno Perez came with us and really helped the family. I love our leaders!

Thursday- Samuel is a friend of Melvin, one of our faithful ward missionaries. Funny story, Samuel and Melvin were school companions and Samuel used to bully Melvin. Now he is different and wants to repent of his past life. It is amazing how forgiving Melvin is, he actually thinks its funny and they are good friends now. The gospel changes people in so many ways! Samuel is going to be baptized in August if he stops drinking coffee. Pray for him!

Friday- We had a Sisters Conference (hence the picture) It was great! They focused on feeling the Spirit and taking care of our area like Queen Ester took care of her people. Also, Pres focused more on how to establish the church and not just baptize. We arent baptize to grow numbers, we want to help others come unto Christ. 

Saturday- Orlandos baptism! I am so proud of him! He is like my father figure here. What a humble repented man. I feel unbelievably grateful to see such a change in a person. I love him very much and Im excited to help his family come to the knowledge of the gospel too! Orlando, now Hno Navarro, wants to be with his family more than anything. Hes been inviting everyone to church and his grandsons (YM age. Can you say future missionaries?) came! Angelito was also baptized and his brother Daniel did it. The ward is very happy to have them part of the ward and they are working hard to help them feel welcome and supported!

Sunday- We were contacting a few people but no one was home so we knocked on the house next door. There was a girl sitting there alone and we asked if we could share a message with her. When we talked about the authority to baptize she said, I have a question, Ive been wanting to get baptized these last few months but I dont know how I should do it. Could you help me? Well of course! I was so filled with joy to know that God guided us to one of His beloved daughters in need. It was a beautiful experience! Also, we had the best church attendance ever! We are almost at our goal. The ward is preparing for our Noche de Talentos this Saturday. Im so excited! I think many nonmembers will be coming. And Im gonna sing cuz the ward asked me too. Im grateful for the gift of music because it really brings the Spirit and they love it when I sing in English haha. 

The members understand that they are the full time finders and we are the full time teachers so we have been very busy teaching this week! There is a scripture we share with the members in D&C that says 

 28 And when the times of the Gentiles is come in, light shallbreak forth among them that sit in darkness, and it shall be thefulness of my gospel;

There are many people that recognize the light that we as members have but they dont know what it is. It is our job to tell them! We gave the ward a challenge this week to share the gospel everyday with someone different and write down their experiences and share them as a family. I want to give you the opportunity to do it too! It will bring a new light in your life as you share the light of Christ that you have in you. Heavenly Father wants all of his children to return to Him. We decided in the premortal life to have a critical role in helping our brothers and sisters on the path. Share it with everyone because they all deserve the chance to accept it. I long for the day to see my Father in Heaven and tell Him I did all I could to help anyone I could come unto Christ and be saved.

Sending all my love and prayers your way family!

Ps- The last picture is of me with Tajin! Its so delicious! Its a mix of sweet sour and spicy and I put it on everything. Did I mention how much my food taste has changed? I love spicy food now. Its weird. But I tried to overcome my fear of bananas and I just cant...I throw up everytime. But miracles happen! Maybe one day.
