buenos tardes mi familia!
What a week we've had. I can't believe there's only two more weeks til' Christmas! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday cheer and the spirit in the air. I can definitely feel a difference in people as we go around and talk to everyone we see. It's AWESOME. For all those who haven't seen it, I SERIOUSLY suggest you look up the Church's light the world initiative. I've seen it probably over 50 times by now and it never gets old! I'm also trying to learn it on the piano because its so dang catchy. I'll keep you updated. But seriously go watch it it'll change your perspective on Christmas! Other major news: IT SNOWED THIS WEEK. Who would've thought, WA is stepping up its Christmas game.
This week had a few exciting points. Remember like two weeks ago when we got a new car? hahahahahhaha so this week We had an exchange and I stayed in Graham and Hermana Huhem came here for a day. This means I GOT TO DRIVE THE NEW CAR AGAIN. I love that thing, so fancy. ANyways we were driving to an appointment and I was waiting to turn right at a light and this guy comes up and hits us from behind like decently hard. We were blessed because nobody was coming from the other lane that he pushed us into. We pulled off into a parking lot and me and Hermana Huhem were like freaking out a little bit. But seriously, I testify that the Lord protects His vehicles hahaha Our car was untouched! No dents, no scratches, no nothing! It was a miracle and we have no idea what happened. We were both mostly untouched as well. We were pretty sore with whiplash and such for a few days, but now about a week later I'm feeling basically recovered. and so I testify, the Lord also protects His missionaries! All is well and we haven't destroyed the new car yet! haha
As for our investigators, This week was basically "everyone reveal the hardest things in their lives" week and as a result the "lay on the floor face down for 10 minutes every night" week. I think the hardest part about being a missionary is seeing so many people suffering and knowing there isn't anything I can physically do. 1) that's not what we're called here to do. We would love to stay and talk for hours with people to help them with their problems but we can't, it isn't our calling. 2) There really isn't anything we can do for them. Nobody can do anything, except the Lord. That is where the blessing of being a missionary comes because we CAN teach them all about the one who can. It has brought a whole new meaning to me the phrase "we're not their Savior". We can't save them, but we know who can! And that is a blessing to be able to testify to so many people who are lost, heart broken, confused, and depressed. I'm grateful to have the happiest message especially for the saddest of people. I'm so grateful to be a missionary.
I can't wait to see you all on Christmas over Skype! We'll plan it out this week and I'll let you all know more information. Thank you for the love and prayers, I always feel them.
Though provoking question of the week: Could animals reproduce in the Garden of Eden? Get back to me on your thoughts..
