Holy smokes it doesn't even feel like today is Monday! But wow it's super awesome being here again writing you guys :)
This week flew by. It's hard to remember what happened!
We had 2 intercambios this week and I had the chance to leave the area for the 2 of them. The super awesome part was that I got to work with 2 americans from my generation, one being my companion from the CCM! What a blessing it was. We had the chance to see that we really have come a long way and we have learned so much and we are still learning from one another! When I went to Tecamac I understood why people call it the promised land of the mission. Its foudn in the Estado de Mexico and wow. The people there are so nice and it just had a certain feeling to it. It's so interesting that every part of the mission is sooooo different!
I learned a lot about God's timing is incredible. We found a few people in the precise moment this week. In intercambios and our own area. So there are 3 little experiences but big at the same time haha.
- When was with Hna Tobey, we went looking for a less active. She was busy washing her cloths (I guess shes always busy) and we just began to chat. After a little we asked to share a message. This sister opened up her heart to us and we were able to find out her needs. Maybe before she never really "had time" but this day she did and she too could understand what was happening in her life.
- Hn Haddock and I were knocking on doors. After a couple of attempts, we knocked on another. The woman came out and was on the verge of saying no. But she let us in, we said a kneeling prayer, and she was weeping. She explained that she has a lot of worries about her family and how she has strayed from her church. The gospel seriously is the answer to all of her prayers. wow.
- Finally, in our area. My comp and I just had a a click. We didn't talk about who we were going to visit we just arrived. And it was a miracle because we haven't found this contact for weeks. We prayed for her and again, the tears came. Her gratitude was incredible. The whole lesson she said "gracias." The promises we made felt so right and our teaching was in complete harmony. I was amazed at what the Lord was saying through us and that honestly, the words we said did not come from our preparation, but of what this sister needed in that moment. another wow moment.
On Sunday I heard amazing talks about the sacrament and also it was a true blessing to hear the primary singing. My comp and I may have been crying haha. They are so blessed and soooooo beautiful! Wow the sabbath day is the best day. Every day really is special.
What an incredible week :) here is a scripture to ponder on this week!
19 For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless she yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.
Lots of LOVE!
