Well this week for me was alright. A little crazy and full of travel! Its a little difficult here in this area. Just with finding new investigators and trying to help this small little branch. Like yesterday guess how many people came to church....only 19, including us.
And the president ended sacrament early and ended church at 11:30 when church started at 10. I was SO mad, but im doing good now. We just have to teach our president here how to do things around here, no one said the mission was easy.
Last monday, we had an awesome lesson with a family that is ready to get sealed in the temple. All they are waiting for is to talk with the stake president. We taught them the restoration, and the spirit was so strong. They have 2 little girls with the ages of 9 and 8, they are so cute. I got a picture book thing that i like to use to teach with little kids and the little girls loved it.
Talking about the temple that time touched me more than usual. When i was teaching some image popped in my mind, it was of the plaque for missionaries that says, "Leave your family for 2 years so that other families can be together forever." I felt the spirit so strongly and thats so true! Im here to help other families recieve the blessings of the temple so that one day i can have my own eternal family. I have been thinking about that a lot this week.
So thursday morning the zone leaders called me and told me that i had to go to valles so that all of the leaders could go to Tampico. So i went to tampico thursday and got there thursday night. 6 hours in the bus!!! I was exhuasted but once we got there the assistants put together an actividad where we had to practice asking for references. I learned some new tactics so thats good! I got to see all my friends in the mission, its was nice. My friends that are still in Huejutla and other missionaries ive meet. We got to eat pizza from little ceasers, un buen de pizza!!!!!!!!! haha
Sunday was good, execpt for church. We were looking for some reference we had and we went to this house to ask them if they knew where the person lived. So i said buenas tardes buenas tardes, then the guy inside said, "I dont want anything! GO away." haha He only said that because he thought we were one of the people that sell bread or something like that.
Then i paused and thought for a second and i got the impression to share my testimony with him, so i did! I told him that i knew the book of mormon is true and that this church is true. I stared him in the eyes saying that to him and i knew he felt the spirit. I felt covered with spiritual power in that moment!! OHH YEAH!! It was so cool.
Well that was my week. It was decent. I miss you family. I love you all. I got 3 packages this week. One from you mom, with those wierd toy things you sent, haha. Then one from grandma and grandpa McFerson, and from grandma Donavan! Thanks guys!
I also got a letter from Katie. Thanks Katie, i really appreciate it. It helped me out!
I Love you guys!
