Why hello there everyone! I hope that you have all just had a great week and that everything is treating you all just great.
This week has been very wonderful. For one, it has cooled down very much and now it actually feels like fall. I even put on my sweater a few times this week and threw another blanket on my bed! I love fall.
So this week we had some good success. We have a few people on the docks about ready to jump into the water. We had some really cool lessons this week where you just knew that they could feel the Spirit testifying to them.
Well, I thought it would probably be good to inform y'all that the Spanish pretty much is just great. Now a days it really isn't a problem. It is funny because the people we are contacting think that I am a Mexican because I don't have a "gringo" accent. So hey that is great right? I just need to work a lot more on widening my vocab so that I can understand and say more.
This week we had interviews with Presidente Carreon and they were just great. He really is an incredible president and I have a lot of respect for him and what he is doing. He gave some really great counsel and some great advice.
Lets see, one thing that was just really sad, but helped me understand and learn more happened yesterday at church. We were in Sacrament Meeting and the meeting started and there was like 15 people there. Here in Mexico, when it is time for the Sacrament, they shut the door and lock it. So if you aren't there before you will not be able to participate in the Sacrament. So we had the Sacrament with about 20 people in the room and the Spirit was so incredibly strong and I was able to focus in on the covenants that I have made and the opportunity to renew them with the Sacrament. Then afterward, the Sacrament ended and in walks about 50 people. It just made me so sad that so many people would not wake up the extra 10 minutes earlier to be there on time. The Sacrament it the whole reason we go to church.
I am so thankful that we have such an incredible ordinance. I love the Gospel. I am so thankful for it and the peace and comfort it gives me in my life.
Well I've gotta go. I love you all!
