Another 6 Weeks In Limache, Salta

Oh man this Sunday was so nerve racking, but me and Hermana Tramell get to stay together for another 6 weeks, and man, are we pumped for all the work we are going to do! 
I am personally so excited because transfers, I feel, are like a new start. We are so excited to be instruments in the Lords hand's, and we have already started off very well. 

We have an investigator and a less active that are very good! They have both lost their mothers recently and are very anxious to welcome their new baby. Belen is the wife's name and Javier is the husband. He is a member and still has a very strong testimony of the gospel, especially about the restoration of the gospel. We are very excited to see both of them progress and they are very excited too!

I know its not Christmas but it sure feels like it over here!! Its freezing! Haha, but today I was reading in the Book of Mormon and it was in Helaman in the final chapters, and it was talking about the signs of the birth of Jesus Christ and personally I don't think we have to wait for Christmas to come around to think about what happened when He came to the World and how he changed the lives for every person who lived, was living in that moment, and has yet to live now! 

I cannot express how blessed I feel to know that He came to the world for a Divine Purpose and He did it because He truly loves us, and because He also wanted to obey His father. I love my Savior and My Father. I'm so happy that because of him we can be healed and made whole. We can truly find peace and love and joy for all eternity through Him and His true and restored gospel. 

I love you all and I hope you all have an Amazing Week!!!!

Con Amor,

Hola Hermosos

Les amo Mucho!! 

Hoy quiero hablar con mis hermanos y hermanas que son menos activos de mucho tiempo o de poco tiempo o cualquier otra forma de inactividad de la iglesia. And also to my parents who are active and brothers and sisters who are active as well.

We had an experience with a less active family that I spoke of in my other letter to all my friends and family members. It made me think a lot about you guys active and not active and to be honest I've been having dreams about you guys, some good, some not so good, y me preocupa un poco. 

Yo se que ustedes estan en las manos del Señor pero tambien que ustedes tienen la libertad de escoger que camino quieren tomar. Pero solamente quiero recordares que El les ama tanto y quiere que regresen. El quiere que participen de ese fruto tan deseable que satiface toda sed y hambre. Yo quiero que esten verdaderamente felices y El mas. Yo les amo tanto y me da tanto tristesa al saber que quizas algunos de mis hermanos no voy a ver otra vez despues de esta vida pero yo pienso mas en como lo maravilloso seria a tener a todos usted conmigo con mom and dad again in the next life with our own families. Imagine the mansion he has prepared for the Ureña Family<3 

Every single one of you is worthy of His Blessings. NEVER LET SATAN BRING YOU DOWN OR  MAKE YOU THINK THAT ITS ALL LOST AND THERE IS NO HOPE. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT, STOP!!!! ITS THE BIGGEST LIE OF THE FATHER OF ALL LIES! I know that each child of His is Beautiful and worth more than gold and silver or whatever fine worldly thing.

Para mis activos les amo igual y por favor ayuden a ellos que necesiten de su ayuda. Se que tenemos nuestras familias pero tambien no nos olvidemos de literalmente nuestros hermanos y hermanas que estan perdidos y necesitan a little extra push 

I think we should have a goal as a family! And it should be this: To help an bring every single one of us back to His path.<3 

I love you guys  and dad, can you tell grandma I love her and that she's beautiful and I miss and hope she's doing just great. Mom please tell Grandma Irene the same <3   

 Con Amor,
Hrm.Urena

He Did It So We Don't Have To Do It Alone

Well this week was a complete turn around! Its amazing the miracles we see. No matter how small, they are so sweet, and we are so grateful to be able to witness them!

We have this amazing family we are teaching! I just know  they are going to be so blessed for their faith and effort to follow and do what the Lord wants!

The family is Juan (dad), Inez (mom), and Adriana (daughter). Juan was in a terrible accident and was left paralyzed. Like every good person, his wife Inez thought "Why my husband?" "Why did it have to be us?" We are good people, I give to those who need, and I do it with out complaining. I pray every day and every night. I love everyone around me! Why Me???? Why would God allow this to happen to me???!!!

And well, she was of course, or is angry with Him! But her husband is the most humble, faithful person I've ever met! He, however, thinks other wise. He understands things like this happen to anybody no matter who, what color or religion, and he knows that he is alive for a reason and that he is going to keep on fighting! And well, the wonderful miracle is that his legs are starting to move!!
His physical therapy is doing him so good, but more then anything, his FAITH! He and his therapist have a day for him to WALK!! And well, we got to teach him on Saturday and we offered him the opportunity to receive a blessing,  and of course we explained what it is and how it works, and well, he accepted!

Ahhh, we are so excited for today! I just know that his faith is so strong that this blessing will strengthen him even more! It gives me so much hope to know that our Savior suffered and died for us so that no one, not one of us, not anyone of you, would have to do it alone. He did that so that not one of us has to feel alone or feel unimportant or feel that they are not worth the time of anyone! DO NOT THINK THAT WAY EVER! Because its not true! Each and everyone one of us is worth His time and sacrifice. So go on and believe and have faith that he loves and knows every single one of you perfectly. And He's waiting for you guys with His arms full of grace and mercy and unconditional love. Have faith and hope He is there and He loves everyone of you!

I love you guys so much!! Have a beautiful rest of your week!

Ps. we got some sweet stuff at Mickey D's
And Meet mi Companiera Hna Tramell!!!<333
