RECUERDAN HACE DOS MIL ANOS CUANDO JESUCRISTO SE RESUCITO?!?!?!?! Y COMO AHORA TODOS DE NOSOTROS TAMBIEN NOS RESUCITAREMOS!!! QUE DIA GLORIOSO ES!!!!!!
For real, I just love Easter and I love being a missionary and talking about Jesus Christ all the time. This week I have been reading this book called Jesus the Christ like a madwoman. It has like 700 pages and considering missionaries have like 0 down time to just read it has taken me my whole mission to get here to page like 600 where it is talking about the Atonement and the trial and the crucifixion but this week on Easter Sunday I finished reading about Christ's ministry to his apostles after the resurrection and his ascenscion. All I can say is that it is so undeniably true. Christ he LIVES!!! I'm so grateful for him.
This week for His work of preaching the gospel to all the world, we saw so many tender mercies and miracles. First of all an update on Petra: she is just so incredibly incredible. We have been crash coursing all her lessons and she just soaks em up and is reading the book of mormon every day and she cries in every lesson because she just feels the spirit so strong. I love her so much. She came to church and we had a pretty heavy lesson on priesthood and all the offices and what each priesthood does and the whole time she just smiled and nodded and would look at me and nod and give me a thumbs up and wow she's just so amazing. Totally prepared by the Lord, not anything we did, but I'm grateful God is letting me get to know her. Another miracle was we had one of our investigators, Celia, come to church for the first time and I almost passed out I was so excited. WE've been teaching her since I first got here to the area and her husband thinks he lacks faith so he basically uses that as an excuse not to do anything but this week she was like no I'm going to church anyway and she came alone and just loved it and I couldve cried I was so happy. THE CHURCH IS SO TRUE.
This week I went on an exchange with the hermanas in Kent and it was just so good. We were talking to this investigator, Jose, he's 18 and while we were talking he said "hold on" and runs off and he runs to this car driving away with a flat tire! Turns out it was this lil old russian man and his wife who spoke no English and we got to help them change their tire and it was so cute they were so grateful. I just love lil' moments like that. Also Jose is awesome He's 18 and just loves serving people. Do they get better than that? It was awesome being and learning so much from hermana Baird.
As for Easter, it was a pretty awesome Easter. We basically just mexican fiesta hopped all around this huge trailer park and shared the prince of peace video. I probably watched it like 20 times yesterday and every time it gets even better. The church is so true and Christ lives and gives us strength EVERY DAY. For which I am so grateful. Another Easter miracle is someone ding dong ditched an easter basket on our porch. Dont lie mom I know it was you. LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH.
