This week was funny! We had a lot of funny stuff happened. Mostly just like funny stuff our investigators said. Speaking espanglish but only saying the swear words in English haha. One of the kids swore in the Visitors Center and the Sisters face was priceless. Haha. Apparently a bunch of stuff with Trump is going down and all of the hispanics down here are getting scared. We had a drunk guy that we talked to and we said "Hello Brother! How are you?" And he said. I'm not Brother, I'm a drunk. Hahha then he went on talking about how they should burn trump and all the white people. We tried asking him what part of Guatemala he was from but he just said it's really close to a town called Beans. Haha.
We contacted a Referall named J_____ R______. He's super cool! He said he's in a rough time and he really just wants to change and be better. He came to church too! We actually had a Stake Conference and M. Russell Ballard came and spoke to us! It was really good. He spoke to us about controlling our natural Desires and stuff. It was really good!
There's a lot of work to do with the Ward. We've been trying to work and try to heal the hurt wounds. Haha we've met some awesome less actives. We actually met one and his niece was super interested. She had been visiting family in Guatemala and she actually went to church and studied with the missionaries. So it was great!
This is one of my favorite Quotes. And I think we can apply it to our Life! We can always beg the Lord to try and make us an instrument in his hands. We don't have to be a missionary to be able to hasten the work of our Heavenly Father. He can work wonders with us, if we allow it.
“Every morning … , missionaries should get on their knees and plead with the Lord to loosen their tongues and speak through them to the blessing of those they will be teaching. If they will do this, a new light will come into their lives. There will be greater enthusiasm for the work. They will come to know that in a very real sense, they are servants of the Lord speaking in His behalf. They will find a different response from those they teach. As they do so by the Spirit, their investigators will respond under the influence of the same Spirit.”
--President Gordon B. Hinckley
Love you all!
That's good! I read the Book of Mormon in English yesterday and it was different just because I try to study in Spanish, oh yeah I don't miss that! Gross smog. Oh yeah! So now Grandma is going to get a new toy huh? (Showed EJ photos of the Ice Castles we went to in Midway). Oh I bet that was sweet! Do they do that every year? That's good that she's adjusting! How old is Maisey again? Like 12? I'm glad too. Haha yanks for sending me hat! I'll read it tomorrow for personal study. Thanks Mom! I love you! Have a great week!
