Thank you so much for surprising me with so much love this week! I have the best support system, family and friends ever! I love you all! Thank you, Thank you!!
Last Monday we met my first tourist from Salt Lake City. We were eating and he came up to us and said hello! We chatted and took pics, then he bought our lunch. What a nice man! We felt like we were states missionaries ;)
At FHE last monday, The Moody family told me I am the most energetic missionary they have ever met and I must have been raised on a farm. I told them I was raised in a city and Bro. Moody said "Wow you must have really good parents!" True!! These people are so excited to meet you mom and dad ;) (dead serious though!)
We took Fita Mejia (She was L.A. when I came to the area) to work with us. She is 14. She brought a bike and went up and down hills contacting with us all day long. Such a good sport!
On NYE we had to go in at 6! We decided it was better to sleep and have energy then stay up and be tired the next couple days. We went to bed at 10:30, but set an alarm for 12! We had a billion fireworks going off which was fun. Nothing too special, but on New Years day, the whole world shut down! No one was out and no one was doing anything! We got a lot of tracting time in!
We have sports night on Fridays and we had about 20 people come this week! It was so fun to play Volleyball and Soccer while trying to find some news! A lot of non members come which is a great way to have them around the church and members. It was such a fun night!
My testimony of fasting was really strengthened this week. We fasted to find news and within hours of fasting, we had found 5 news! It is so incredible to see how "Sacrifice brings forth the blessings of Heaven!" I am blessed to see that first hand. I love fasting and I know that the Lord blesses us according to his will and his time, but we need to humble ourselves and ask for those blessings. We also need to do our part.
I taught R.S. yesterday and it was a great time. The ladies shared their testimonies and taught me more than I taught them. Most of the sisters are converts and I love hearing their stories and how they endure each day. I am so blessed to work with these incredible ladies!
Our investigators are moving along.The Holidays were hard because everyone was doing their own thing. We are hoping to get everyone in the groove again! We are searching for God's precious souls here in Santa Elena and I am loving every minute of it! (even the sweating in every moment minute!)
Thank you so much for your love and support! I am so blessed to have you guys! Work hard and enjoy your week!
Bringing 'em Heaven as I glory in His name!
