Miracle on the Bus and the Greatest Joy




This week was really great! I'm with my new companion and I am teaching her the area! It's HUGE so I'm giving her an intensive course!!! She's learning fast so I'm not worried about her. She's the tiniest human on the planet and I feel like a giant. Her dresses are like shirts for me. For the first time I feel legitimately tall. I now understand how others feel when they talk to me!!! 

This week we saw a miracle! 

So I am not a fan of contacting on the bus. Usually its loud and I can barely hear, and the people usually don't live in our area. I've had very little success bus contacting in the past. But I know that I should do it, so I try really, really hard to contact. The other night we were going home from an activity and we had to take the bus. At night the buses are always full and we're all squished in there like sardines. We got on and I noticed a teenaged girl standing a few people from me. I felt like I should talk to her but it was uncomfortable and there were so many people, so I kind of just brushed away the thought. I hesitated for a second and then 2 seats opened up and I sat down. That girl came and sat down next to me. I felt like "Shoot that's a sign now I really need to talk to her." But I hesitated again, but then she asked me what time it was, and so then asked her her name. I told her we were missionaries and she's like yeah I know! We started talking and turns out her uncles are return missionaries and all her cousins are members. We set an appointment for the next day. Turns out she lives 2 blocks from our house! We taught her the Restoration and she accepted to be baptized!  We invited her to church and she went!!! SO much can come from just obeying when the Spirit tells us to TALK! We just need to open our mouths and the spirit will do the rest :) 

I'm kind of in shock that this is my last week in the mission field. I only have a few more prosletyzing days as a missionary! I can't believe that it's gone by this fast! 

I love being a missionary. The greatest joy is to see someone you love dressed in white. I know that Heavenly Father loves all of His children and wants their salvation, and I am so grateful to be a representative of His beloved son here on this Earth. It's the most incredible feeling, to know that I'm part of such a grand work. I love this gospel and I love my Savior Jesus Christ! 

Con amor,

Sixteen days left

 


I FELL AGAIN! IN THE STREET! AND OTHER PEOPLE SAW. It was really embarrasing!!!!!! 

This week really was incredible! We had the opportunity to go to the sealing of a family that my companion taught in one of her old areas. It was really beautiful to see a family of 4 united for eternity! Even though I didn't know them, I felt a real happiness to see them there in the temple together! I felt the Spirit really strongly! I love missionary work- it brings families together for eternity!!!! 

Hermanita Lizbeth got baptized this week! Her family is passing through a lot of problems right now, but it has been really cool to see the gospel help them in their difficulties. Hermana Lizbeth was really excited to recieve the Holy Ghost. She needs this comfort in her life right now! 


My convert Jareth passed the sacrament this week! I felt so happy to see him there in his white shirt and tie all nervous to pass the sacrament for the first time. It was so cute! I love him and his family so much! Yesterday his mom Elsy and his brother Kermith told us that they want to get baptized this month! Little by little the whole family is getting baptized! It has been a privilege to work with these people in Aeropuerto! And I am so glad that I have these next 17 days to work with them! I also have a new companion! Her name is Hermana Tepoz and she's from Puebla. I don't really know her that well but I'm excited to work with her for a little.

 
I love the mission so much! I am so happy! I know that this church is true! It's the same church that Christ established when He was on the Earth! I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer, and that if we let Him, He can change us! I love the story of Alma-  a prophet in the Book of Mormon! His is a real conversion! 



Mosiah 27 24-26
24 For, said he, I have repented of my sins, and have been redeemed of the Lord; behold I am born of the Spirit.
25 And the Lord said unto me: Marvel not that all mankind, yea, men and women, all nations, kindreds, tongues and people, must be born again; yea, born of God, changed from their carnal and fallen state, to a state of righteousness, being redeemed of God, becoming his sonsand daughters;
26 And thus they become new creatures; and unless they do this, they can in nowise inherit the kingdom of God.
I love this scripture because it is possible to be born again! We can repent EVERY SINGLE DAY. And become new creatures like the scripture says :) 
I've got just 16 days left! And I'm gonna give it my all!!!!! 
I LOVE YOU ALL!  Be happy because I love you and Christ loves you too!
