This week was FULL of miracles, and really, it is times like these where I am just constantly praying and thanking Heavenly Father for all of the blessings he gives us.
We found 2 famlies that have so much potential to progress, and I am so excited to teach them more about the loving plan that God has for us! They are amazing.
We have this less active family that we are visiting a lot because the mom is a drug addict. We stopped by this week to see how they were doing, and one of the little boys (Matias..5 yrs) said..."Hermana, I found a scripture that I love that I want you to read." He then flipped through the book of mormon to Mosiah 24:14-16.(below) I cannot even begin to tell you how much I learned in that moment from that 5 year old. He taught me that the Lord is ALWAYS there. He also proceeded to tell me that he KNOWS these words are true because the holy ghost tells him that it is true. What an example, and honestly, in that moment I couldn`t hold back my tears.
I bear a firm testimony that the Lord DOES visit his people in their afflictions, and is always there to help us. It is one of the biggest lessons I have learned here on my mission.
I am now a pro at washing clothes by hand, and I am proud to say that I have had to conquer my fear of spiders, because there are more of them here than there are people. Also I may or may not have a love for dogs... HOW did that happen? And, I am forgetting all my english.
LOVE YOU ALL!
