Well Wednesday is the day! I will become a missionary of the grand mission of Santa Fe Argentina!!! Whoooooo So exciting!!!
Our week was really good! especially sunday!! We had a lot of inactives that decided to come back to church this week and we had some of our investigators come! It was great!! We had an attendance of 45!!! :) We were really excited!!
We have an Investigator right now and she is so great!! Her name is Natalie! She is 35 and has a little boy of 4 months! She is looking for a place to belong! The babys dad left right after he was born and so she has just been kind of hurting after that, she has just wanted to look for a place where her family could be together and then here we came!!! Its been really great! She couldnt come to church this sunday because its been really really humid (As you can tell from the foto!) and here baby has been having problems and so he was up all night sick and so she didnt want to take him out in the humidity! But we have taught the first couple lessons and she wants to get baptized! :) The people here are ready we just have to go find them!!! :)
Funny story of the week: We had a lesson with two of our investigators, Julieta (shes 10) and Javier (hes 8) they are kids of an inactive family and so we are working to get both the family reactivated and they both wanted to get baptized and so we are teaching them as well! The mom really wants to come back and she has come to church the past two weeks and has really liked the feeling of coming back! So we are really hopeful for them!! anyway, since both the kids are pretty young we decided to watch the restoration, its about 20 min long. Anyway, to make sure it worked we played it during our comp study and just made sure that it would play etc... anyway to have some fun we decieded to switch the language to Tagalog with english subtitles. we played it a little and laughed at how hard that language is! then took out the dvd and went to work. Well we get to their house and we put the dvd in and then it starts playing in Tagalog with english subtitles and they dont have an option to go to the menu and change the language! GREATTTTTTTTT........ So me and my companion start and attempt to translate from the english subtitles! haha Oh my goodness it was a train wreck! But their older brother came in to the rescue and pulled out their new dvd player hooked it all up and we were able to get the language switched back to spanish and such! But its a great memory to look back on a laugh about! hahahaha
Welll I hope you all have a great week!! Today i read in Alma Chapter 7 and my favorite verses from this chapter are 11-13 they say, 11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.
13 Now the Spirit knoweth all things; nevertheless the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance; and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me.
These are some of my favorite scriptures i love knowing that no matter what i go through in this life i always have someone who knows exactly how i feel and knows how to comfort me exactly how i need it!
I know our Savior and our Heavenly Father know exactly how to comfort us and how to help us overcome our trials and problems in this life! :)
The Church is True!!
