Well Family! The suspense is over. Last night Elder James called to tell us the transfers…..we don’t have any!!! =) We are staying together another 6 weeks together! YAY!!! =)
So this week was a really great one! A few great things happened! We found a family to teach!!! =) The Ochoa Family! Eva and Alfonso are the parents and Edgar and Suleyma are the kids…but they are older 20 and 18 years old. They are amazing! We actually first met Eva because we visit a member a lot named Carmen, who has a little store and every time we are with Carmen, Eva walks by. One day we decided to talk to her and then, Carmen came and introduced us too. It was great =) Carmen is like a little missionary too! I just love her. Now she is all excited and tells just about everyone about us! haha But anyway we made an appointment with Eva to meet with her and her family and we went on Saturday! They are amazing. The spirit was so strong. At the end of the lesson Edgar offered the prayer and it really was one of the first times for him to do it how we pray. He thanked our Heavenly Father for putting us in their lives when they most needed it most. Oh man. it was just a great prayer! Better than mine! We are so excited to be working with them. But the cool thing is that during the lesson we really were ourselves. Just laughing with them and having fun..but letting the Spirit guide and that is sure what it did. =)
We have really learned that it is little by little or drop by drop like Sister Linda Burton said in the woman’s conference. We really just have to do the little things right everyday and be consistent and we WILL see the blessings and miracles. They really do come. I love my Heavenly Father and My Savior Jesus Christ with all my heart. I know that it is only through the Atonement of our Redeemer that we can make it back home again. I know that we can use the Atonement to better ourselves in each day. I just want to quote Shon right now and say “do your best and your best gets better” the Savior helps us get better. I KNOW IT! =)
I love you all so much!
Be happy this week! Smile lots!
2 Nephi 5:27
“Y aconteció que vivimos de una manera feliz.”
Nephi and his brothers who followed the Lord lived happy because they LIVED the GOSPEL! Lets all live the gospel so we too can live happy!! =)
