For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
ISAIAH 55:12

Week 35

this week i learned to always do our part in the work and if something doesn't work out dont be sad because it is not suppose to. this week we have been focusing on getting members to lessons we set a goal to have 20 of our lessons this week with members present (this was a super high goal for our mission but we made it and got exactly 20 we were so happy!) but anyways the point is everyday we are calling lots of the members to find who can come! we were trying to get a member to come to a lesson we had with miguel and we tried 3 or 4 different members and no one could do it we were really frustrated until we ran out of time and had to go so we couldnt get a member the lesson was our first one after dinner. right after we went into dinner they called and cancelled. then it made sense why we couldnt get a member. so that made sense to me and that was enough and then it was even a greater plan or blessing then i could see. our dinner was with blanca and lorena our recent converts and my favorite family ever! towards the end of the dinner lorenas non member friend comes over. because miguel cancelled we could have a lesson with her right then and if we got a member and miguel cancelled we would have toward the member the address of our back up and we would have had to rush to bike to meet them right after and couldnt had had the lesson. it was such a miracle to me! the lesson was so amazing! she was super receptive and prepared to hear the gospel and she felt the spirirt the next day was la noche de talentos en la rama and we invited her to come to the activity and not only did she come but she danced and performed in the show with lorena y blanca! we have had three lessons with her since and she is so amazing we are so excited to teach her and she already has the best fellowships ever! I know that heavenly father always has a plan for us. We cannot understand but if we trust with faith we can accomplish his purposes. I love the gospel! and i love the scriptures they change me every time i read them and it is a blessing to recognize my sins and know the next thing i must work on to overcome! la noche de talentos was so much fun! i cannot describe the heart spirirt and devotion of this branch. the members magnify their calling. they are all willing to help. and the devotion and generosity is unbelievable. it was a talent show we had but it was also for la obra misional and every one brought non members friends it was so well organized they had tons of movies and pamplets and book of mormons and in between every talents they talked about the gospel and talents and the different organizations of the church and it was so perfect fun and spiritually uplifting this branch knows how to have activites and how to work i love them so much! then after the activity i told hermana morales and hermano morales that it was perfect and incredible. and only said there is always something that we can improve we try to make one thing better each time so we can always progress and they told me the things that they are going to change for next time. they are such an example to me! i love them! on sunday during the sacrament meeting i could not stop smiling because i felt so much joy and peace the spirit so strong and so much gratitude to be serving right here. I know that this is Jesus Christ's church on the earth. and I am so grateful to be his servant at this time!
Que tengan un buenisima semana y predicad el evangelio!
