Week 32: The Lord Answers Prayers

Monday: Zone P-day. So pretty much a whole bunch of missionaries from the area got together and we played "Quiditch!" Like the game in Harry Potter! It was so much fun! It was pretty much a mix of basketball, ultimate Frisbee and dodge-ball. It was super fun. After P-day was over we had a training from our area leaders (zone leaders). We talked about personal revelation and how important that is. Personal revelation is the only way that any of us can know what is true and what isn't. It is the only way that someone can gain a testimony. That is why it is so important for us as missionaries to help others understand this, so that they can gain their own testimony through personal revelation.

Tuesday: Well today I decided to put into action the training that we had on Monday. Holy cow...... one of the most spiritual lessons ever!!!!!! I couldn't believe it! We taught Rosi and Juan. (background info: Their 9 year old daughter just got baptized so we are working with them) The spirit led the lesson so well and we were able to break down huge wall that we had kept running into time after time. Later that night we found some Jehovah Witness' and talked to them. We taught about the Book of Mormon and a little bit about how we have our church. It was a really cool experience.

Wednesday: We had our first Spanish Group Correlation. It was awesome! We got so much done and it was so focused. This is a huge step for the Spanish Group and I am so excited to see where it goes! Miracles are going to happen!!!

Thursday: AHH! so do y'alls remember Jossie. The 12-year-old that told us that she wanted to be baptized? yeah her. so we went to her house to teach her. OOOOHHHHH MMMYYYYY GGOOOOODDDDNNNNNEEEESSSS!!!!!!!!!!!! It was fantabulous! her parents were there and sat in the whole lesson. We taught them how we have a God who loves us and that he wants us to be happy. So he has restored his church so that we can be baptized and live with God and our families. It was so so so so so powerful. Man I wish every single one of you could have been in that lesson. At the end of the lesson they all said that they would like to be baptized and we set a goal date for the 24th of October. Man. I wish I could explain how that room felt. I felt so happy! Oh! And to make the story even cooler, Hna Bryant and I had been fasting and praying that we could find someone who wants to be baptized and set a baptismal date with them. The day after our fast we had this lesson. Miracles are real and God answers prayers.

Friday: A pretty normal day. Taught a couple of lessons. Met more people from the Spanish Group. Had district meeting. overall a great day

Saturday: Women's Conference!!! Oh man, I hope all the women and girls who are reading this were able to watch it. It was so good and all the speakers were so inspired. If you didn't get a chance to watch it, go look it up and watch it!!!! It is so good. I loved President Uchtdorf's talk. I learned so much from that wonderful story. I think the thing that stood out to me the most is that we need to have faith. Faith is so important and with faith comes hope. When we have faith we are happy and we are able to do all the things that the Lords has in store for us. I hope you all can keep exercising your faith. I will be working on it too!

Sunday: Sundays are always crazy, but this Sunday was especially crazy. I had the pleasure of giving a talk in Spanish Sacrament meeting. I was scared out of my mind!! I was praying so hard, and I don' t even know if it went well, but cool story. When I was walking up there I was super nervous, but once I started talking all of my nerves went away. I felt the most calm that I ever have giving a talk in my whole life. And I was giving it in Spanish! It was a really cool experience. So I don't know if you guys all saw the moon last night! But holy cow! It was amazing!!!! The world is so cool.

As you can see this week has been amazing. I have never loved being a missionary more. Time goes by so fast and I hope that we can all take the time to enjoy the moment. Because once it is over, it will never be the same. I love my Savior. I know his second coming is getting close. I pray that we can all prepare ourselves for that day.

Keep loving the Lord!!
