HELLLOOOOO!!!!!This week FLEWWWWWW by!! Here are the highlights:
-Ivan: We had FHE with him and the members that he is living with. We had planned to teach the Book of Mormon, and we had even downloaded a video to show him, and then when we were heading to his house we realized that we didn't have a copy of the Book of Mormon to give to him, and we were like.. okay we will teach him something else. Well we get to the house, sit down and start talking and when we started the lesson, he asked us what the Book of Mormon was. IT WAS A GIANT SLAP IN THE FACE! We had been guided to plan to teach about the Book of Mormon, we had a video, and then in the moment we had thought that we would teach something else... Well CLEARLY we were supposed to teach about the Book of Mormon, and well the family ended up having an extra copy in the house that they gave to him, and well since he has been reading a TON! He also accepted to get baptized in January!
-luces de campero (fireworks): Last night there was a huge firework show! EVERYONE was outside watching! It was super impressive! And lasted 30 min!
-egg nog: So my companion had a stomach ache and didn't feel too good, but it was cold, and hey, I am already in the Christmas spirit, and so I said that I was going to pray that someone would give us hot chocolate, and my companion was like, NOOO My stomach hurts, but I will pray that they only have enough to give you a cup! We laughed and kept working. Well later in the evening we passed by to visit some less actives. And it was one of the best lessons we have had with them in a while!! Well as we were getting ready to leave, they asked if we wanted egg nog, but that they only had enough for one cup. It was a tender mercy, AND BETTER THAN HOT CHOCOLATE!!! :) It reminded me that God really does love us, and he gives us the desires of our hearts, and sometimes he gives us something BETTER than we had asked for!!
-Last Monday we painted the bishop's house! AND MAN was I sore afterwards!!!
-We are in the stake Christmas choir
-Santa came early!! The office elders bought us a blender! And the taxi guy went to pick it up, and his wife wrapped it for us! It's the little things!
-Wendy and Hermano Anibal: So we went to visit Wendy, and well the hermano and his girlfriend that married them went with us and after talking with her, they decided to go to the store and buy her food and other things that she needed. It reminded me that there are many good people in the world!
Ponderizing: Mark "And in the morning, rising up a great while before the day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there he prayed." I like this because
1. we should wake up early
2. we should make sure that when we pray we create an atmosphere that allows the Spirit to speak to us.
Love you all!! Hope you have a wonderful week!
