So this week has been a blast! On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we were serving two sister who are less active. They have a little store called a papeleria and we were helping them to organize it and helped them with painting their walls! We had a lot of fun and I got covered in paint! Especially because on wednesday we were serving them pretty much all day! I love serving people so much! I love see the look of their joy on their face, and I love the feeling that I get after I serve. But what I love the most is that it is an opportunity for me to show my love to my Heavenly Father!! My Heavenly Father has done so much for me and I love to take every opportunity that I have to show my appreciation for him!
On Friday I had my first Zone conference! It was a lot of fun! All though about half way through I was really frustrated because I was not understanding a whole lot, and I wanted to be able to know what was being said so that i could apply to my missionary work. Well after talking to my companion, I realized that i understood almost all of what was being said and that I just needed to stop doubting my self. That happens a lot where i will second quess myself and if I am actually understanding what is being said, only to find out that I understood it perfectly. I have also been getting a whole lot better with speaking spanish! My sentences actually make sense, and people understand what I am saying!!!!
Other than that we did not do much! We did not really have any apopintments this week because they all cancelled on us! Although yesterday at the begining of Sacrament Meeting our Bishop started to say that we did not have a pianist, so I rose my hand and volunteered to play the piano! So that was a lot of fun for me!!!!
So for my spiritual thought this week I have a quote from my personal study this morning!
“Excercising faith in Christ is trusting and placing our confidence in him as our Savior, on His name, and in His promises” – David A. Bednar ( Gather Together in One All things in Christ Liahona November 2018) I love this quote so much! I love the entire talk!! Jesus Christ is our Savior and he loves us!! He loved us so much that he suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane and then died for us in Calvery!! Trust him! Trust in him as your Savior, Brother, and Friend! He understands you perfectly! Put you trust in him and excise your Faith in him! I testify that HE LIVES!!!! He loves us so dearly and is always their to help us! He is just waiting for us to excersise our faith and to ask him for the help that we need! I promise that as you excersise your faith in your Savior Jesus Christ, that you will be able to feel your relationship with him strengthen and that you will notice more of the wonderful blessings that you are recieving, and the blessings that you have and will recieve! I testify of these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
I love you all so dearly and I am so grateful for th influence that all of you have had in my life!! Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here are pictures of the service activity, and of some of the streets in mexico! I also have more plant picturs (of course!!!!!!!!!!!) as well as a cute little store that reminded me of a board game! I also have pictures of the rain storm yesterday! there was a rever in the middle of the streets! I also have a video of the cup song! We were at the very end of our service activity and we had been singing different songs the entire time so we decided to have fun!
