Week 27: "Satan can't knock you down if you are already on your knees."

So we found this saying on a random church one day. I love it so much because prayer really is so powerful. Keep up those prayers! Well here is a quick run down of the week.
Monday: P-day. We played this super crazy game called scatterball with all of the missionaries. It was loco!  We watched the Restoration video with a 16 year old girl named Mariana and she loved it! I am super excited to teach her more.
Tuesday: Free towel tuesday again!!! Got the car washed and got a free towel! We had an amazing lesson with Roberto this day. We brought the Elders recent convert Cesar with us to the lesson. Holy Cow... Talk about a spirit guided lesson! We went in with the intent of talking about the Word of Wisdom. Right off the bat I could tell that something was up with Roberto. He has something on his mind that he wanted to talk about but was scared to. So we started the lesson. I don't know how to explain it, but I knew that I had to ask Roberto what was up. By asking that inspired question he was able to open up to us so much! We were able to help him figure out all of his concerns. But the way that happened wasn't through us, it was through our member, Cesar, who was there with us. When members go out with the missionaries, the lessons are 100 times more powerful and the investigator learns so much more! It was such an amazing lesson!

Wednesday: Met with Roberto again and all he could talk about is how excited he is for his baptism! We also had lunch with one of my favorite members. Hna Olea! Her granddaughter lives with her and holy cow!!! she reminds me soooo much of Raimie when she was younger!!! It is nuts! I love that family.
Thursday: Found an awesome scripture! 2 Nefi 2:10. It's a good one! The atonement makes us happy!
Friday: We have been meeting with Roberto every day this week and every day I learn so much from him. Funny story. We taught him the Law of Chastity today. We asked him if he knew what chastity meant. He said no, so we explained it to him. His face was so funny! I have never seen his eyes get so big! hahahaha! But the funniest part is that afterwards he told us that he already knew what chastity was, but that he just wanted to see if we would say it. That stinker!!! haha We are such good friends and as well as all of the super spiritual experiences that we have together, we also have a lot of fun "normal" experiences. For example one time he answered the phone and said (in english) "Marco's Pizza! What would you like?" so so so so funny!
Saturday: We went to the temple!!!! A less active couple that Hna. Ryan worked with in her last area when through the temple and got sealed! it was such a tender moment. Man. The temple is so cool and it is such a blessing that we have the opportunity and blessing to be sealed to our families forever. Family, I love you so much!!! I am so grateful that I am sealed to my parents and my siblings! There is nothing better.
Sunday: Sundays are always crazy crazy crazy busy and stressful. There is so much to do and so much to remember!!! Roberto came to church again! this is his 4th time at church and he loves it. He always tells us how he feels so happy and "full" after church. It is so so so cool!
I am so excited for Roberto. The changes that  he has made in his life are outstanding and this Gospel really is the thing that brings us happiness. And not just happiness right now, but happiness forever.
One more thing! I got an email from Hope (Genoveva's mom!) and she told me that she is reading the Book of Mormon every day and night and she loves it! this is HUGE!! It makes me so happy to know that!
I love you all so much and hope you have a wonderful week!!!!!
