this week was an interesting one but full of milagritos! en serio!! we found a lot new people to teach which is super refreshing(: its crazy how if we are looking to see the hand of the Lord in our life, we can see how real God is and that He is very aware of each of us.
Sunday morning we went walking to buscar algunos investigators. and let's just say that 99.9% of the time, even if they say they will go to chuirch, it doesnt happen. But we went for this contact, Miriam, and when we clapped at her house, she came out totally ready!! we were STOOOOOOKED. so we walked down to the colectivo and we were already a little late because she's a little bit of a slow walker, bless her cute heart. and right as we pulled up to the station our colectivo (bus) came!! so we were only a few minutes late to sacrament, oops haha. but on the way to church we were able to teach her a powerful lesson about the plan of salvation. she had lost her mom and has a pretty hard life full of sacrifice, and we testified to her that she will be able to live with her mom forever, and she accepted a fecha bautismal!!!! we are stoked:). we are going to work with her a ton becasue she is beyond lista and prepared!
Read the scriptures everyone! it is literally our guide to live a happy life, both the Bible & the Book of Mormon! in the Book of Mormon, 2 Nephi 5:27 it says " and it came to pass that we lived after the manner of happiness" AMO this verse!. if we want to have a happy positive life, we HAVE to apply the principles of this book. it literally changes lives. and i am so grateful for the opportunity i have to see it happen as I serve! love you all!!
