May 25, 2015

This was an amazing week!! Another amazing week I should say, because every week is amazing here! Amazing in every way you could think of. Amazing experiences, amazing sights, amazing differences, amazing people, amazing miracles.

We had another baptism this week. E, she is the best!!! She is 24 haha even though she doesn't look like it. She has been meeting with the missionaries for almost 4 months and has always come to church but never wanted to get baptized because her whole family is catholic and just so much pressure, but we were really able to be guided by the spirit to say exactly what she needed to here to give her the strength to take this leap of faith and truly trust in God 100% and the biggest influence against her baptism was her Mom, but guess who came to watch her, thats right, her mom. If you trust in the spirit, he will guide you. Live worthy, show him that you deserve his guidance and it will come.

I feel like the Book of Mormon prophets writing in the Gold Plates saying "And hundreds of other things happened that we can not reveal" because so much happens every week and I cant tell you everything haha, just know that the work is amazing, my Paraguayan companion is awesome (he is as old as Alex by the way) and that we are super feliz ;) 

The Ward is the best and the work is progressing! Like I told you, this Ward has lots of difficulties, so what we have been really focusing on is the attitude! Attitude determines everything!! Grandpa just sent me a quote by President Thomas S. Monson that says "So much in life depends on our attitude. The way we choose to see things and respond to others makes all the difference." Its so true!!! I was so inspired by the story of the rugby state championship (we emailed him the story from  May 13, 2015 The Spectrum ) , we (SCHS Rugby Team) have never been the biggest, we have never had the most amazing athletes, but what makes all the difference is the Heart. The attitude and the will we have to go out and win no matter what the circumstances! 2 Nephi 2:11 it is necessary an opposition in all things! Face them with a great attitude and see the difference!

Love you so much! Keep Enduring! Have an amazing week!
