Hola Hola Hola!!!!!!!! This week has been absolutely amazing!! We had Renata´s baptism on saturday and that was amazing!! She was so happy and she was bursting with happiness and with light! My companion and I performed a musical number for her baptism. Honestly I did not do great with the piano part, I had issues with the sheet music and had to move it while I was playing, and there were a few times where I did not play or lost my spot because of how bad my wrist hurt. But despite all of that the spirit was strong. It does not matter how well we do all that matters is that we provide and atmosphere for the spirit to be there, and as long as we do that we will be able to touch the lives of many people. Oddly enough the same goes with spanish! I felt pretty useless this week because I could not teach much and I wanted to do more than testify. But after my experience with the musical number on saturday I realized that it does not matter how well I speak or understand (at this point in time. I do need to work and get better) as long as we create an atmosphere that the spirit can be present in, I will still be able to help and to touch the lives of those that I teach.
Frida has decided to change her baptismal date. So right now she does have a baptismal date because she feels that it is too soon and that she needs more time. But we have a lesson with her today and we are pretty sure that she is going to reschedule her baptism today!!
Oh and yesterday my companion and I were in the final hour of church and we got pulled out of class because there was a lady who was sitting by herself in the chapel because she wanted to know more about the church. We talked to her about a lot of principles and explained how the church was run and how it is the same wherever you go. She was so surprised that we are all over the world and we asked her if she would like to meet with us to learn more and she said no, but that she would like to come to church on sundays. She is in our area and we are hoping that sooner or later she will want to meet with us!! We also had a man walk up to us on saturday and start asking us questions about the church. We talked to him about how the gospel could help him to change his life for the better. Which he was really excited about because he smokes and drinks a lot and wants to change that. So we talked to him about the atonement and about how through christ we can repent and we can be able to change and that through baptism we can be made clean again. We then gave him a plan of salvation pamphlet and scheduled an appointment with him and we meet with him tomorrow!
So the reason for the title is because my companion had been making fun of me for how much I have been eating. While I have been here I finally got my appetite back especially because they feed us os much here. So at one point I was 1 piece shy of eating and entire pizza by myself! (I have started eating the much all the time now) My companion was teasing me, so of course we decided to play Chubby Bunny!!!! Also she was teasing me in a nice way, just in case any of you were worried about that. We got a really good laugh out of it! If you would like to see the videos of Chubby Bunny as well as the video of our musical number, you can find them on my moms blog goofyj.wordpress.com
My companion and I also got chased by a stray dog! So that was a lot of fun! I think besides the baptism that was the funnest part of this week! I love you all and hope that everything is going good for all of you! I would love to hear from you all about how things are going for you guys! Byeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also this week I would like you guys to read 2 Nephi 31 and 32
These are two of my favorite chapters in the Book of Mormon because it reminds me of how important it is to rely on the lord, pray, study (not just read) the scriptures, and endure to the end.
I know that my savior lives!! He loves us all so much that he was willing to give his life for us so that he might be able to understand us perfectly and be able to help us! I know that as you pray and read the scriptures that you will be able to feel the love that he has for you! I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I testify that through the Book of Mormon you will be able to feel the love that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father have for you, and you will be able to develop a closer relationship with them both! I testify of these things in the sacred name of our Savior Jesus Christ Amen.
