It definitely was a fabulous week here in good old Juarez - the sun is shining more, the missionaries are smiling more ;) and all is just fine and dandy!
This week the Hermana Ramirez and I have had such a blast working together; she really is such an example to me, and we had some really cool experiences this week with our investigators and in the ward. We both wish we could stay together for just a little bit longer, but the changes came!! But the great thing is that we are both in NINOS HEROES still - she is just moving to the other house!! My new companion, well my old companion, cuz we have been together, is going to be HERMANA HERNANDEZ! (from Puebla) I am really excited to work with her; she is a hard worker and we are ready to rock and roll. Tomorrow are the changes. Sadly Hermana Panta and Hermana Miranda (she was with Panta this week) and both headed out... But HERMANA PRICE from my generation will be with Hermana Ramirez in the ward!! ALL IS WELL AND EVERYONE IS HAPPY!!!!
Sadly there are no questions for me so I just will have to ramble. I hope that it makes sense, but if not... well sorry!!! So a cool little experience that we had this week, one of our investigators has a little problem with drinking coffee! :( The thing is that he has a sleeping problem and so at night he hardly sleeps, so in the morning he needs something to help him wake up (that’s what he said, but I think just being in a freezing cold house does the trick, that’s what we do) hahaha But we taught him and his wife about the word of wisdom and the importance, and they both had lots of desires to follow it, but he was worried about sleeping at night. We told him we were going to do a little test: He was going to say a special prayer right before he goes to bed and we were too, so that he could sleep well, that way in the morning he wouldn't have to drink coffee. So that is what we did, and the next morning we went to see how he was and he told us he didn't wake up one single time!!! He told us “I didn't even have desires to drink coffee in the morning!!!” AWESOME - RIGHT?????? He and his wife are really progressing and every time we go to see them, their faith surprises us more and more!!!
Also another cool thing, we found this guy in the street on Saturday night, well actually he found us. We were walking by him and he was on his phone but he stopped and asked us what we were doing (he said he could tell we had something different in our faces) We explained to him, and invited him to come to church. To be honest we talked to him for less than 5 minutes but never the less he was there at church the next day. He told us he just woke up this morning and didn't really realize what he was doing but found himself at church!!!
Also, another one of our investigators who lives next door to the bishop is really progressing! What happened with her is about 6 months ago the sisters and the bishop stopped by her house but she had no time; she was working nonstop! Her hours were terrible and she hardly even had time for her little boy... We passed by a few weeks ago to see how she was doing or if we could find her. It just so happens that she lost her job (sad but the Lord provides) and now she is always in her house. She told us that she was super excited to be able to meet with us. Keep in your prayers that she finds a job... But one with a little bit better hours!!! hahahaha
What else could I tell you.... WELL I AM SUPER DUPER HAPPY!!!! :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPI THIS WEEK. I HOPE YOU EAT LOTS OF CAKE AND ICE CREAM FOR THIS SISTER!!!!!
WHAT MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU DIDNT TELL ME YOU WON AN AWARD AT SMITHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU GRANDMA REVA WHO SENT ME THE CUT OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CONGRATS MOMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hmmmmmm but I think that is about it!! I really am doing great and the miracles of the Lord still keep surprising me; it is amazing what we can see if we just take time to see the blessings of the Lord. He is so gracious and loving; we literally are so blessed to be part of this amazing gospel. I can’t imagine my life without these things; that is why I am working so hard to help others to have what we have. This is the only true church on the face of the earth. If you don’t know that for sure, get on your knees and figure it out!! THIS IS TRUE HAPPINESS!!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND LOVE. I TRULY AM BLESSED!
Con mucho amor,
