This week was definitely a quick one. I swear the days are the longest days of my life and then I blink and its the next week arleady! This week was awesome and being a missionary is awesome. Im starting to be tired 24/7 but its the best kind of tired. My brain hurts so bad at the end of every day but Im learning so much that I cant wait to share with the people in Salt Lake.
Also I dont know if I explained it in the past emails but when one of the other Hermanas, Hermana Graff, was learning our Purpose in spanish she kept accidentally saying Espiritu Gato (Spirit Cat) instead of Espiritu Santo (Holy Spirit) lol. So everytime something unexpected happens we all blame it on the Espiritu Gato and tis the funniest thing ever. Yall probably dont think its that funny but it gets me every time hahaha.
So last tuesday, we had a General Authority come to speak with us! Gary E. Stevenson of the 12 apostles. He is amazing omg. Since it is almost thanksgiving he spoke on the 4 missionary Thanksgivings. 1.)Thanksgivings for the change of heart wrought by the Gospel 2.)Thanksgiving for Christ and his Gospel 3.)Thanksgiving for the spirit 4.)Thanksgiving for the message of the Restored Gospel. These are so true! Ive been thinking about all of these things to be thankful for this week and how grateful others will be once they hear how awesome these blessings really are. Another thing I learned from him was that it is important to always extend a commitment after every lesson or message shared. Our purpose is to help bring others closer to Christ through the gospel. This gospel is a gospel of change, and without commitments to be better, to do something, or to look for things in our lives we cannot change!
