Haha just kidding. We have bigger accomplishments than that as missionaries :)
We moved approximately 7,942 pounds of food from a downstairs room to an upstairs room of a Food Pantry. It was a wonderful bonding activity for our district. And a seriously intense workout for my weak arms. :)
We made it home on time after a late night, 2 hour long correlation meeting.
The less active Martinez Family came to the branch with us this week.
I impressed Alfonso with my Spanish, even though it's still not that great.
One of my favorite moments of this week was in a lesson with a women named Irma. On the front of the Restoration pamphlet that we hand out, there is a picture of Jesus holding a tender lamb. (If my mom is feeling very generous, she will insert a picture of it here...) I asked Irma how she felt as she looked at the picture. She looked at it for a moment, and then, looking back up at me with a big smile, she said, "Confianza," (or confidence for those of you who are not bilingual). She then listed off a bunch of other words, "paz, consuelo, gozo, felicidad, etc." and then once again, said, "confianza." Isn't that neat? Confidence. Christ gives us confidence. We can receive power and the ability to press forward even when things are hard, if we look to Christ. He ALWAYS has His arm of love extended towards us. He is ALWAYS seeking to strengthen and uplift and support us. He is our Savior. He is our Rock and Redeemer.
I am so grateful for the confidence I have in my Savior. I know that He will support us through all moments of our life. His example gives me confidence in my abilities, and more important, in the message of the Restoration. I know that the Gospel has the answers to all of our questions and the blessings we need to heal our broken hearts and lift our hanging heads.
