Hola hola! I hope you all had a great Mothers Day! I sure did. Well this week went by quickly and here we are again on a Monday morning! I have changes on Wednesday so I will be getting a new companion and a new area. So stay tuned!
On Wednesday Angelita was baptized!! It was such a special day. After almost 6 months of her investigating, she now is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She shared her thoughts and feelings and expressed that she really understands that baptism isnt a game and that she is determined to endure to the end! Fun fact, Angelita was baptized in our church about 20 years ago but never was confirmed. But now we have got her :)
Angelitas son lives in San Salvador and is in a military school. He had permission to have a visit from Angelita for Mothers Day. The problem was that the visit was in the morning when she had to be in church to be confirmed. We talked through it with her and explained that she was be greatly blessed if she chose to put God first. We left it at that and felt that mostly likely she was going to go with her son. Well Sunday morning we walked into Sacrament and Angelita was sitting there. She had the biggest smile on her face and she looked beautiful. I guess she got a call from her son, he cancelled on her. It was an answer to her prayers. She knew she needed to be confirmed and the way was provided.
On Thursday we had our last zone meeting in this change. We learned about the importance of the Sacrament. My testimony and my understanding of the Sacrament has grown so much in my mission. I now understand how the Sacrament is a spiritual and sacred experience. A time to think and ponder, to feel the Holy Ghost. It is an experience that all of us need, weekly.
On Saturday I got to chat with and see my cute family!! Best day ever!! The amount of time to Skype goes by way too fast but I loved every minute of it.
We ate so much food on Saturday. We were invited to eat lunch with two families and then we ate dinner with a different family. Then the fourth family brought us food to our house. So much food. At least we got out of eating the last dinner haha
We also got caught in a rainstorm with our mission leader. Two missionaries walking down the flooding streets with bright yellow ponchos and our mission leader with a bright yellow umbrella.
We have to enjoy the little things. Enjoy the journey. Make every moment count and laugh along the way. :)
Here is a little scripture for the week! "He that is faithful and endureth shall overcome the world". D&C 63:47 Be faithful and endure.
I love and miss you all!
