Aih Familia, que bendición tengo de escribirles cada semana... lástima que no lo puedo hacer en Español verdad. Haha, just kidding family, life is great here in the mission and well, another week closer to Christmas for those who are counting down! This week was a crazy one and I was really able to learn a lot and strengthen my testimony. We had Stake Conference which is always a great time and we listened to some really quality talks there.
So the miracle of this week is that we really did see how the Lord works in blessing us, only after doing everything we can. This week I worked suuuuper hard, like the hardest I have my entire mission so that we could have people in church. My comp and I just wanted it sooo bad. So anyways, after the week of work, Sunday comes around and nobody shows up at church and I was super sad… until I saw a guy sitting with a lady I didn’t recognize... turns out the lady was less active and this week they had just felt the Spirit super strong that they should go to church. So she took her family, including her husband that isn’t member. They all went and now we can teach the whole family. The best part was that the dad hated the church because his work mate always watches porn while at work and gives the guy a bad image of the church and so he wanted to go see what our church was really like. He went yesterday and just drilled the people that use pornography and helped them realize that it’s not something accepted in the church at all. We will see how things go teaching him this week!
At five in the morning today I wake up to go to the bathroom, and get locked in the tiny bathroom we have with this big guy (see pic). A massive rat. Needless to say I killed it after five good hits to the head with the shampoo bottle and then took a HQ pic afterward. Life is awesome, haha.
I don’t have time to write anything more but I love you guys and have a sweet week. Missionary life RULES!
