This week was AMAZING!!! We really are starting to see the fruits of our labors here in this ward. This week we did A LOT of contacting and searching for new people to teach. We dropped nearly all of our investigadores because we didnt have any progressing. It was sad but we knew that we could be spending out time better. This week we made it a goal to invite everyone to church. On Sunday we had 5 people come to church!! There were both inv and menos activos. It was a mini miracle! I know that god answers and listens to our prayers (2 Nephi 32:8-9). It was such a great Sunday and was a day of happiness. Also on that same day we had so many new investigadores and talked with so many people on the street. It was a day full of smiles and the Spirit. We have been fasting and praying to see some success in this ward and our sector and we are really starting to see it! I shared my testimony in Sacrament Meeting on Sunday about the Libro de Mormon. I honestly LOVE the LDM an…

So I really don't have much to say this week. I was sick almost the entire week!! For Halloween I spent the day in my bed sleeping and reading my scriptures. My companion was sick last week and this week was my turn. It is bound to happen that both companions get sick when we are together all the time! It was terrible. I woke up yesterday so much better though!! It was an answer to prayers to help me feel strong and healthy. Though it was hard and boring in the house, I was able to organize the entire apartment and clean. It was a good reminder of how when the house is in order and clean, the Spirit can reside with more ease. 
So we had a Zone Conference this week and it was so uplifting. We had a member speak about how we should teach the gospel..... with ENTHUSIASM!! When he started talking about how important it is to always be smiling and happy and positive, all the Hermanas and President turned and looked at me. President then said ¨This is you!!¨ lololol. All…

Hello everyone, 

I dont have much to write this week because well nothing really happened. It was a week full of contacting and lessons that fell through. We had lessons fall through every day this week. It has been one of the hardest weeks in the mission! We didnt have many lessons or success this week at all. It was a bit of a set back and definitely was early to fell let down and just sad... but that is not who I am! I am a positive person and one who loves to look for the good in all things. I decided to put a smile on my face and told my companion that we were just gonna let the happy moment role and push forward. She wasnt too excited about my attitude but I dragged her along anyway. Though this week was hard and didnt have that much success, it was a week full of spiritual growth. I hgave really learned this week to just trust in the Lord with all my heart. I know that if I do my best, the Lord will do the rest. This last Friday we had a huge Italian Night with …
