Well we had a successful week! we found 12 nuevos!!! The Lord is putting us in people's paths, it's awesome. We knocked on a whole lot of doors...we asked if we could offer a prayer to bless their families and homes and surprisingly a lot of people accepted and now want to learn more. Magic!!
Pancho had the opportunity to pass the sacrament for the first time yesterday. He was so nervous, poor kid, but he did so great! He was grinning so big...seriously the light of christ shines so brightly in him. Everyone is noticing this change in him, it is so awesome. He is being an example to his friends y Veronica received the gift of the holy ghost ayer! She is one of my biggest inspirations. Seriously, her desire to follow and become like christ is so big. She is not letting anything or anyone get in her way on her journey to exaltation. She is so awesome! I need to work so hard to reach the celstial kingdom with her, she is doing so much studying. 1 nephi 15:14, we need to continually study the basics of the gospel. I feel like as a new member they are so on fire, but that is something we should never lose...our enthusiasm for the gospel. We talked a lot about that in our reunion de zona esta semana. We need to be the same missionary all throughout our missions that we are on our first change in the mission. It's the same after the mission; we need to be the same members we were on the mission or when we were first baptized. What week is this? Week UNO!! Continue with the excitement and love for the gospel.
Seriously God's plan is perfect...we will walk by someone at just the precise time, I can't even tell you how many times this has happened in my mission. I have really seen God work in my life, his hand is in every detail of our life. We had an awesome (I don't have time to go into details) opportunity to feel the spirit really strong with an abueltia, she is 97 and is really sick. We went over to her daughter's house to offer a prayer of comfort. She was screaming so we ended up singing her a hymn... mas cerca dios de ti (god closer to you). She was so at peace, she actually fell asleep! I thought she had died... haha. but she didn't :) we then offered a prayer for her and her family and we returned that night with the bishop to give her a blessing. I am so grateful for the priesthood.
This past wednesday we watched a video that really struck my heart, it is called 'gracias a él'. Seriously everything we have or ever will have...our blessings, our lives, are thanks to christ.
Oh and a very Happy Birthday to 'Boo' (Bre)! 13 years old. dang girl.
Make it a great week :)
