Week 29: Feliz dia de las madres!
Hola todos! Espero que cada una de las madres tuvieron un buen día ayer! Estoy tan agradecía por mi mama.
This week was so good! First of all we had zone conference on Tuesday and they focused lots on charity. It was something warden and I had been thinking about a little before so it was perfect. But we learned lots about charity and how we can better apply it in our missionary lives and how we can love our investigadores more fully. Really cool. So we have been working on that all week and have been praying for charity a lot.
Then we were able to go to a wedding in wardens old area this week as well. They had it in a stake center and were so pumped for them. One of them is getting baptized this next week which is really cool too!
Then I was able to go to a baptism in my old area in magna. She was so excited to be getting baptized and it was so cute. The first lesson that I ever taught in the mission field was this little girl named Stephanie. She was like 9 almost 10, it was really cool to see how far their family has come in the past 4 months. I feel so lucky that I was able to have just a small part in knowing them and talking about the gospel with them.
Then the best part of the week was olgas baptism! She got baptized on Saturday and a bunch of the ward came and also her daughter and her daughters husbands family. Literally we are so excited for her. She has SO MUCH FAITH YALL, and she's been so prepared. The lords hand has been in her life so much and everything that has happened to bring her here to the United States has been so that she can learn to the gospel! Seriously it's so cool. The part that she was most excited about was to receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost. She's been talking about it for weeks and she finally got it on Sunday! In her blessing it talked about her being able to share the gospel with the rest of the family. She's already so good too. She tells her daughter everything she learns with us and shes such a good little missionary. I seriously feel so lucky to be able to know her and to have been able to see the change in her from the beginning. It's so cool how much happiness the gospel can bring to someone's life!
Love y'all! Tengan una buena semana!
