The Promise


Holy cow family!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Well, this week was good. In fact I loved it! Conference was so good!! And guess who didn´t need the subtitles in english when those brethren spoke! and karlie! The Lord is truly amazing! i still mess up a lot in Spanish, but I understand everything usually. The gift of tongues is real. 

Also, I am going to tell you a little bit more about what happens normally here in Chahuites. We study in the mornings and then we leave to work. And it is normally so hot! We are sweating the whole day. It makes me laugh that I can sweat so much. Everyday a sister from the branch invites us to eat at her house. We normally eat chicken. or more chicken but they change the way to eat it. sometimes in soup. sometimes in salsa. sometimes in mole ( which is a lot of chile and spices and has a distinct flavor almost like chocolate with apple sauce and some spicy stuff). My house is nice. The whole floor is tile. But it is like an oven in there ooooh so hot. I am in a small small small pueblo. Everyone is family and knows everyone else. But I am the tallest person here. And we walk all day looking for people to teach. And it is wonderful :) 

Well yes, something that I loved in conference was that we had investigators in almost all the sessions and what did our leaders talk about? The promise that the lord has given us if we want to know if the gospel is true or if the book of mormon is true or if joseph smith was a prophet then all we have to do is search and ask. What a miracle it is and how merciful is our Heavenly Father that He has told us if we want to know that truth about something all we have to do is ask! The promise is real my family!!! Do your part and the Lord will let you know. I have seen this promise a few times here in mexico and it is awesome! You can know too!! And the Lord will bless you. 

I love you all so much family!!! I hope everyone has a fantastic week and know that I love you all dearly!

How Great the Lord Is


Hola familia!!!!! 

So remember when I talked to you about Virgilio two weeks ago? I need to tell you the rest of the miracle. He did not come to church last sunday and we went to figure out why (now with my new companion) and it turns out that a member discouraged him that he could change. He was hurt really really bad that he shut himself in his house. And he told us if people like that were in the church that he did not want anything to do with it. But we stayed firm and tried to help him feel more calm and then we left. We came the next day and this time he was more calm but had decided that now he did not want to change. He knows the Gospel is true, but did not want to lose his social life. That was so hard! To know that someone knows that the gospel is true and say that they do not want to change because it will be hard. I could not believe it, I did not know how to feel! But I kept praying for him. And then arriving at church on sunday guess who was outside the church....Virgilio!!!! I almost cried and gave him a big hug, but I did not do it because I am a missionary. But I wanted to. He was nervous to enter because he did not want everyone to give him looks. But he entered. ANd then he left after the second meeting. I did not know what to think at this point. if he was going to go back to work in mexico or if what?? Then he sent us a message that said when he arrives in mexico city he will be baptized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still cannot believe it.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How great the Lord is in softening the hearts of people so that they can receive this grand blessing of the Gospel. I just love it! 

I love you all so much! Also something that came to my mind this week, sometimes it is just good to say thank you. It can really brighten someones day! 

Love you all so much!
