This week was way good. filled with milagritos cada dia! I am looooving the mission, my area, everything.
SO we have been working with a menos activa , Lidia for some time now. and she alwasy talked about her husband how he was super against the church and all this stuff, well we met him the other day and WOW! He was actually super nice to us and we were able to teach him and feel the spirit very strong. I know the Lord is prerparing people every day! we've been working so hard at finding investigators. we are talking with anybody and everybody!!!. Yesterday because it was Fathers day EVERYBDOY was out and in great spirits and cooking riiicco asado y todo, it was THE BEST. We tlaked with soo many families and are going to focus on teaching them this week! we're stoked(:
hahaah so the other night we were chilling in our pens, feeling the spirit, doing our studies when all of the sudden we hear 7 GUN SHOTS and police like crazy. Lets just sayI have my dads gene in reacting to situations with panic. ! freaked and ran and turned off ALL the lights and was ready to duck and cover HAHA my comp though i was crazy. We still dont know what happened but its all good! were living and thats all that matters! no really, I feel super safe regardless and I know the Lord protects his servants.: )
something ive been contemplating a lot lately is the atonement. doctrina and convenios 19¨: 15 a 19 (creo) really hits me in the heart!! Our savior Jesus Christ suffered EVERYTHING, We literally cannot comprehend what he suffered for us. and all we have to do is repent and come to him and do our very best to live as He did! and he promises us he will be here for us and we can be clean and return to the presence of Him once more. He has given us the beautiful gift of the atonement, but WE are the ones who have to decvide whether or not to use it. He is always there waiting for us to choose to follow Him and accept Him. and the joy we recieve from doing this is inexpressible.
With that being said, have a great week everybody!! the Lord lovvveeess you and i love you : )
