Week 9: A week of Miracles

We have seen so many miracles this week! it is so amazing!

Monday: P-day! which is always amazing. As a zone we played volleyball and it was crazy intense! All the Sisters and Elders here are so much fun. Later in the evening we planned to go through the ward list and go meet everyone in our area that we didn't know. We found this name on there and we decided to go visit them. This was the DeLeon familia. We went to their house and they let us in! (Miracle!) We talked to them for a little while, and we mentioned church. They said that they moved here and couldn't find the church, so they have been going to a family members church. Then they pretty much asked us for the address of the church!!! and on top of that they asked us if they could have some Book of Mormons!! They are a super cool family of 6 and I am so excited to get to know them a more.

Tuesday: We taught Jose Garcia at his doorstep the entire restoration. We went to Lydia's apartment and she had a bunch of people over, so we got to talk to a ton of people about our message.

Wednesday: Happy Birthday Grandma Teresa!!!! I had a meeting with my mission president and the APs today and it was awesome. The spirit was so strong and I heard so many good words and learned so much. Miracle of the day, I got my Spanish set of scriptures back!!! We went to the lady that I went out with last Sunday's house and she had gone back and gotten my scriptures from the family. So all is well with that and I am so thankful to have those back!

Thursday: We found Ever Escobar today! He is a referral that we had and it was a process trying to find him, but we did it! We couldn't have done it without the help of the Lord. We also taught Geniva today. She is still the same old Geniva. A wiggly crazy 9-year-old girl

Friday: We were walking around Lydia's apartment complex today, when a guy who was looking out of his window hollered at us and was like, "Hey do you guys have a bible?" We of course said yes. We walked over to his apartment and had an awesome conversation with him and made a follow up appointment. This is the pretty cool part. He told us that he did roofing for work and when he said that Hermana Snowden and I both looked at each other and said "Edgardo!" Edgardo does roofing too which means that he would be home. We have been trying to see him since i got here and haven't been able to because he has been working. So we book it over to his place and he was home! He let us in! We had an amazing lesson about the importance of church and the sacrament. That was an awesome experience.

Saturday: We helped clean the church today. I got a package from my family!! We did all of our 5-minute visits. That is when we go around to all of our investigators and less actives and invite them to church the next day. it was a busy, awesome day!

Sunday: Margarita came to church!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I saw her walk in my heart skipped a beat and I was so happy!!  It wasn't the investigator we were planning on coming, but it was still amazing. We went and visited Lydia and Geniva. And then we went to visit  Hermana Olea and we chased down one of her kittens that got loose.

Overall this week has been full of miracles. I have grown so much this week. and I am continually seeing the Lord's hand in everything that we do. I love the scriptures and I love reading in them. There are so many wise words in there. I love this work and am so excited to see the miracles that are going to come this next week!

I love you all!
