I need to find a better way of remembering everything that happens in a week. Wow. So, so much.
Honestly though. Where do I even begin?
We've dont a lot of service for Chazahla this week, which has been good. It's neat to see how the more you serve someone, the more you love them. Even though sometimes it doesn't look like we've made a difference in helping her move stuff and pack and clean, it's really cool how much she appreciates it.
We also taught a woman named Lily. She's one of our Spanish investigators. She has so much faith and is so humble. She's probably around 50 or 60 and she just wants to do God's will. Sometimes she gets stuck on little
Holly! Oh acutally, her name is Pauline, the elders mis-heard her when she told them her name. She's probably 80 or 90 and she used to bring her kids to church for the youth program, but doesn't recall ever being invited to be baptized. We showed her a picture of the temple and she was speechless. She stared at it for probably 10 minutes. I thought she was going to cry. We invited her to be baptized and told her about the blessings of the temple and the amazing feeling there. She accepted our invitation and we hope that she will continue in her faith to be baptized on August 2.
Pablo. Pablo is intersting. We met with his wife yesterday and learned a lot more about him. I've only met him once, but I already have so much respect for him. I don't know what it will take to show him his own testimony, but I think he already has one. He works so hard and loves his family. He belongs in the church! I want him to be baptized so badly.
We also met Manuel, whose brother and sister-in-law the elders taught. They seem so prepared for the gospel. We will go back and visit them this week and hopefully I will be able to say some things in Spanish... Finger crossed and prayers said! Now it's time to get to work.
So this week has been interesting for me. Finding out where you fit in when placed in a new situation is always interesting. And it's been that kind of process for me this week. Who is Hermana Clark in the field? That's been my discovery this week. One thing that I have realized over and over is the importance of trusting in the Lord. I found a scripture this week in D&C 14:8 that has three words I love. "In faith believing." We must pray, act, and live in faith believing. And that is my goal on my mission.
My companion is so great. I am so blessed to have her as a trainer. She has taught me so much. I adore her. Ah! I don't have the words to say it all. She is such a good teacher. She cares so much and I appreciate all that she does for me. She is a rock. She really gets what it means to be a missionary in every way. I am excited to continue learning from her.
Well, I'm out of time, but I hope you all have a good week!!
