buenos diiiaaaaaas y feliz dia de memorias :) gracias a todos los que han servidos o han dado su vida por este pais!
We had another great week this week. Check out these miracles.
First of all, Rosa is MOVING TO MEXICO. I know, insert tears. Hermana Short and I were so sad, but also so excited to send her information to all the elders down there in Colima to help her move on to baptism. She's such an amazing lady. In our last lesson together she said the closin prayer and said "padre oramos que un dia nos podamos reunir otra vez con estas hermanas y aprender mas de tu palabra". RIGHT I FEEL THE SAME WAY. Supposedly she'll be back in about six months, probably baptized and happy as ever.
I had an exchange in Renton this week with Hermana Livingston. Renton is super awesome!!! For my whole mission it has been an elders area, but last transfer they took the elders out and put hermanas in. I had this awesome feeling while i was there that I'm going to serve there someday. Who knows, might be my next area, but we met this family that were recent converts which means they got baptized recently and joined the church and they shared their conversion story with us. He is from mexico and she is from honduras and theyve seen missionaries since like forever and talked with them a lot but never progressed in making changes in the gospel. he got encarcelated for not having papers for like 8 years and then finally was released and they moved to WA and didn't have a car and had to walk 2 miles to the grocery store and one day they were walking home and it was pouring rain so they stopped and waited in a taco bell and said "we need the missionaries" and right as they said that they saw two elders walking down the street. They were baptized within the month. It jsut grew my faith so much that these people exist. There are people looking for the gospel, looking for jesus christ and waiting for the day that theyre ready and they change everything. It made me just want to go out and find them all! So we went knocking that night (this was last night, happy memorial day) and we met this boy named Johnathan. he's 24 years old and from El Salvador, speaks no English, and we taught him the restoration and his eyes were just glowing as we shared the first vision and testified about the joy and peace the gospel brings. He asked US about being baptized.
I'm just so happy to be a missionary and to share this message with the world. to help people change their lives and find Christ. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. even with all the heartbreak that comes. This week we were supposed to have lil Kamay get baptized, but last minute friday night they decided to cancel and wait longer until they could have some special people there and her mom felt like kamay was more ready. kamay was really sad, and crying, and just wanted to be baptized. She will someday soon hopefully. Satan works really hard on people trying to just do the right thing, but it will be okay.
Okay last news, so hermana short and i have this vision of this activity we're doing and we're finaly putting it into action!! It's based off the movie meet the mormons, which if anyone reading hasn't seen that movie they definitely should. but we're interviewing our members and making a meet the mormons federal way edition. Our member is helping us make it into a video and we're going to have spanish and english translation on the screen and invite THE ENTIRE CITY TO COME MEET THE MORMONS. It's goign to be so good! Mark your calendars, release date june 23rd.
also, one of our members got her mission call this week to orem, utah spanish speaking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to go out with her when im back in provo. THE CHURCH IS TRUE DONT FORGET IT AND DONT FORGET THAT NEVER DOESNT EXIST. THERES NO 'IM NEVER SEEING ROSA AGAIN' AND THERES NO 'I CAN NEVER CHANGE MY LIFE' NUNCA NO EXISTE.
