What a wonderful day and what a wonderful place to be blessed to serve in. So many miracles! Well first it is so important that we open our eyes to see the miracles that are always coming, second we have to have the faith in Christ that there will be more because He loves us and wants us to be happy, third be happy and the Lord will always come through!! This week was awesome, I feel like we are not working as hard as we can, but that comes as we make goals to improve the small things. One bite of the elephant at a time! 🙂 There are so so so many miracles. Fasting works. We are sacrificing what we want now for what we desire and turning the timing over to the Lord. The amazing thing about coming closer to the Lord is that every step we get closer to Him, we begin to realize how truly far we are away from Him. Contrary to popular belief this is not a depressing thing, because we see how it is so possible, through the Savior, to make it back to God! 🙂 love it.
It’s great here in Montereeeeeeey! Rooockin it up! So today it is sunny. and beautiful. It is never sunny here. haha but it is today! Also. We saw a huge miracle with a recent convert coming to the baptisim that we had on Saturday. her mother killed herself this month and her step mother died a week later. She has been strugglin and dropped off the grid for a few weeks (no come to church) but it was pretty amazing, she came to the baptisims of two guys in the singles ward we cover, bore her testimony, and Sunday we had an incredible lesson with her. Seriously amazing. The Lord is so aware of his sheep and He takes care of them. If we let Him, he will allow us to assist in the gathering and comforting! Only led by the Spirit. Pretty amazing. So we read in that lesson Trial of Your Faith. -conference of october 2012 and it was so good everyone should read it 🙂 🙂 Ok uhm… What else.. The car show of all the fancy cars brought a ton of people and we were able to contact a ton and talk to a lot of people about the gospel 🙂 I love it!
This week was So hard. I was reaaallly struggling on Friday and Saturday, but when Sunday came it was a miracle. We fast every Sunday for our Hour of power and it is incredible. It helped so much and the answers all came through other people saying things. We have to hold on to our Faith in the trial of it. Trials are there to build us and always will help us to become better and more faithful and closer to Christ. My comps are great. The Lord continues to answer my prayers and it really truly is going so well! I only desire to work harder and be better as a missionary. I love the Lord. 🙂 I love this work!!!
Ok got to go!! I’m going to send you all some pictures and I’m writing you a letter 🙂 Love yooouuuuu!!
