Ah Jesus Christ Moment

Ok so let me just share the best lesson we had this week that was my highlight of the emotional roller coaster that ive been on this week haha.
So on Friday we found this couple Diego and Esther they were working on their yard and we contacted them and offered to help them but they said no they were ok and plus i think when they see our skirts they don't take us so serious haha but anywho. We asked them if we could share a short message with them and they accepted. We sat down on the sidewalk with them and offered a pray to start and we testified and talked about how we can be forgiven of our sins and how it can be valid in Gods eyes thank you to the restoration of God power and authority of the Preisthood. Let me just say they are a couple that isn't married living together that drink and smoke and one at the first glance wouldn't think they would be interested but let me tell you they were all ears and we invited them to be baptized and they accepted! We also asked if we could come back and keep sharing our message they also said yes so FLASH FORWARD TO SUNDAY We go back and we look for Diego and Esther and Esther didn't come out she was taking a Siesta but we weren't going to get down on that we went outside on the same sidewalk with Diego but Diego had a couple of Friends with him one was a little passed the beer bottles but harmless and the other 4 were about to start but Diego and us invited them all to listen some looked a little Hesitant at first but they all accepted to listen. As we started to teach and testify there was such a strong spirit there i loved it my comp and i felt like Jesus in the picture when hes teaching a lot of people sitting on a huge rock it was the most amazing feeling. They were all interested and im just saying these men are probably people we as people in "normal life" would never dare to talk to. But they were the humblest most willing to listen and with hopes to change their lives. I loved this moment and it made me think we are all his children and Salvation is for everyone. No one is exempt from participating NO ONE. I know that is true with all my heart and i know that Miguel Alejandro Diego Jose and Facundo are all sons of God and He wants them home but with a change of heart and being born of water and the spirit i hope and pray that if not all but some of them preferably all could take that leap of faith and change their lives for the better. I love being a missionary of the Lord Jesus Christ.

What a ruff week haha!

Ok so this week was like really really really hard hahaha. I laugh now because its funny but i did feel like crying other moments in this week like when no one wanted us to come in when people some nicely other s not so nicely rejected us lol but anywho besides the whole bad week I will always remember that no matter how bad my day might be Heavenly Father is always there for me and is always there to comfort me pick me up and dust myself off. And it also allows me to remember that im not the only one who goes through this and that my Savior has been through worse. So i really have more to be grateful for and i really do feel that way especially because of my Companion shes super awesome Super obedient and Very straight blaze. Shes a wonderful example to me and i really appreciate everything that she does for me. 
We had a really sweet experience in the mist of all the wimpy haha so we went to go contact a friend of a member and well we got to teach the friend his name is Fabian and the member is Tata and his brother in law Joel is a less active that is trying to reactivate and we are helping him with that too but in reality hes super Capo! and is doing it all himself and with Gods help obvi haha but what was so special and ill never forget is how Joel testified with all his heart to Fabian about the way that this gosple changed his life completely an still continues to do so. He is so great and i know that no matter how far we separate ourselves from God its not impossible to come back and when we do it every sacrifice and battle we have with our Temptations will be worth it because there is no greater joy than to get nearer to God through His son Jesus Christ. And Joel made that clear to us all that night.

PIDE Santiago 1:5

In this week i had a huge impression of extending my service till September and I was a little hesitant after i had told my President not that i didn't want to but because I wasn't sure of it it wasn't something i had prayed about it was just an impression. But since yesterday it was something that was very heavy on my mind and i didn't know if it was totally ok or if i was just acting on impulse but i As they said it over and over again this Sunday during sacrament meeting i knew that i too tenia falta de sabiduria and i needed to go to God and get the clarity i  needed. So i did and like many others i'm not the only one i received a clear and Strong answer like how i had asked Him to give me and i know with out a doubt that  He lives and He loves me He Truly loves us all that is why He sent us His Son Jesus Christ the ONLY one who could bring us back home to Heavenly Father and He sent the gospel to be restored the same way it had been brought when Jesus was here on earth i know that Joseph Smith is the Prophet that God chose to Restore these great and eternal truths and i know that the most PERFECT proof of all this is The Book of Mormon. I know that its true and its all thanks to the ability we have to Pray to our Father in Heaven and receive direct answers from Him by His spirit and the Book of Mormon. I'm so happy that i have the chance to testify of these things for a while more .

What a week of Milagros!

I sometimes think Wow i'm so Wonderfully blessed by God to be a participate of His huge blessings! 
Well this was my companions last week before she completed her time and goes home tomorrow! And we were able to see the fruits of our labors! We were so excited it wasn't an easy week either it was very trying and tiring but we made it haha The best part was feeling like i was completing with my purpose as a missionary and a Sister Training Leader. I could feel so much love for the Sisters and for all of the people that surround us. The best thing that i learned this week was to just Trust God and My Leaders as imperfect as they may be (my leaders ) i need to remember that i'm not perfect either. And i need to remember Nefis Example on how when things went south for him when he broke his Bow that wasn't his fault and all the people that where depending on him were complaining and getting angry but we shouldn't do that because like in his situation it wasn't Nefi's fault that his arrow and bow broke but he still did everything possible to fi x the problem. Before we get angry or judge lets stop and take  a sec and remember no ones perfect and try to help the best way we can possible.

Keep on Going!

Oh man haha this was such a Crazy Week!!! Well first off Maxi didn't get baptized This Weekend he still needs some more time and well he kinda let us know that he also felt like we were pressuring him to quit smoking 😥 I felt soooo bad! but i do know that my love grew more for him and  his family i know that we cant obligate ANYONE to do anything they DON'T want to do but i think we got a glimpse of the love that God has for us He desires THE BEST for us but He gave us our agency and sometimes we chose to do other things that aren't good for us but He still loves us and He still keeps fighting for us He still protects us and helps us. So if my Father in Heaven loves me enough to let me and Maxi and the whole world choose for ourselves i think i should have that same love and patience for Maxi too but i know that its not my timing ever its my Heavenly Fathers timing and we need to have more patience for his progress but we know that it is something he wants to do but with time it will pan out

Whimpy Week

Well this week wasn't so hot. It was actually really hard haha great way to start your guys Monday huh? Haha but its the truth. We had a ruff week. It was really hard to get into peoples homes this week and really hard to find new people this Week.I maybe it was the freezing cold weather or something but we struggled a bit. But we did receive the POWER to overcome our troubles and we received the Comfort that we needed to Keep on moving forward which was super great. And to be honest this week was closest i felt to my Heavenly Father i felt that i was acting as an instrument in His hands saying and doing what he wants from me it was the best feeling to tell a sister that God is there and is aware of her Family situation even though i have no idea what was going on in her personal life. I know that no matter how bad our week can get or how imperfect our plans can turn out to be He is right there and promises that we will have the success we desire if we just hold on and keep Giving it our all i loved this verse that one of our Leaders shared with us in Isaiah 40:29-31, 41:13 
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
13 For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
I Know that it will all be ok i felt that this Sunday during sacrament meeting my companion and i are gonna change things and just continue to work He will guide us and help us in everything and im just SO Excited to keep being what he wants me to be and go and do what ever He asks of me. I hope you guys have a fantastic week and enjoy the warm weather! While i Freeze hahaha its ok i prefer the cold anyway!😊
