May 18, 2015

Last week our internet time got cut because we traveled a little bit farther to go to a huge place to shop. One of the zone leaders is heading home soon so he had a big list of things to get before he leaves the country! And I always save the best for last so yeah sorry about that but I hoped it wouldn't be too big of a problem because we got to talk face to face on Sunday :)  (his email Home last week, said "Sorry, no time, Love you" )

How is everything!! The family looks super good!! Say hi to everyone for me! I miss you all like crazy, but not that much! Haha

Wow we had an amazing week! I want to share with you my letter to President because we had an awesome experience and I don't want to write it again haha.
Wow! What an amazing week! We improved 100% this week compared to what we did last week. We had a rough week last week with some of the lowest numbers and success that I have had in my whole mission! But this week we targeted the problems and found the solutions and we really have seen the beginning of the results this week! We met lots of the goals of excellence and really gave it our all. The Lord really has blessed us and we saw miracles this week. One of my favorite scriptures is 2 Nephi 25:23 that after we have done ALL that we can, that is when the Lord extends his had and gets us to our goal by showing miracles. One experience this week happened on wednesday morning, we went to the bus stop to head up to the top of the hill side and waited, and waited, and waited and the bus didn't come, finally my companion says lets just go back and do some additional study, and we cross the median of the street, just as we cross I see a bus in the distance, here it comes hurry lets go back! No we are already across the street, but I insisted and felt that we really should go to visit a family that is always home, so we crossed the street and we went up to the top of the hill to visit the family and on the way hiking up to see them we were approached by a man who invited us into his home and we started talking, he told us about how he recently had stopped drinking alcohol thanks to the alcohol anonymous program and has been looking for a church to join to strengthen his relation with God and keep strong and stay sober. He has visited a few other churches but says they are hypocritical and talk but don't act. He told us he wants a strong Christian base and to be able to trust in God and have a happy united family. As we are listening to him talk we are just like "wow"!  We taught the family of 5 "The family, a proclamation" and they all came to church on Sunday!! They are awesome and progressing so good, the next visit we are going to put a baptismal date and I know for sure they will accept it and find exactly what they are looking for! It is so amazing to be able to follow the spirt and I know when we do all that we can, God will put his chosen in our path!

We also had a baptism this week! The first one here in almost half a year, and we have two more with date! This saturday, and the next! " En La Mision Peru Lima Este Bautizamos, Confirmamos, y Rescatamos conversos semenalmente!" Haha. In the Peru Lima east Mission we baptise confirm and rescue(less actives) converts weekly!

I love the mission so so much and wow there aren't really words to describe it. The Church is true! God lives and is our Loving Heavenly Father! Jesus Christ is the Son of God and our Savior! Mosiah 2:41 if we follow the commandments of the Lord we will be blessed in ALL things! Temporal and Spiritual!

I love you soo much! The Challenge of the week, Do 3 random acts of kindness and then write in your journal how you were able to effect someones day and how you felt too!

Have an amazing week and watch how the small and simple things will make great things come to pass!
