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!😊

We can breath now so we thought that Maxi was getting married for sure this past Monday but no they weren't ready yet in terms of papers but now its all set and hes super excited to get baptized the 3rd of June hes so great and his wife Mariana is like a really big support for him and their daughter Pilar is doing great as usual with all the cool teen stuff haha but lately here there have been a lot of kidnappings of minor teenage girls but don't worry we are all good and no danger for us missionaries haha but its really sad to see how they post up everyday different signs of different teens missing recently. But back on the bright side sorry haha we had a good ruff week on cause i've been a little sicky and it just takes a tole on my body but i will get over it and it doesn't stop us from working lol.

Full of the Spirit!

Man on man was this week just the best!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHH we are so excited! we have a Baptism coming up and a wedding! The wedding is first actually haha and another Baptism in the next couple weeks! We have a young man that has gotten the desire to serve a mission!! WOOOOHA We have super AMAZING Members in Vicente Sola!! I couldn't ask for  a better area! So this week we had the lovely experience to see the baptism of one of the missionaries in our district and well we weren't going to go at first because we had a week full of meetings with our leaders and our Zone and we had divisions and we needed to take time to do our weekly Planning and this was our morning to do it i was reluctant at first and i really didn't want to but no one was showing up so to show support we went -_- So as you can tell i wasn't too happy but i was trying to support my companion and fellow missionaries but man did in need that amazing Spirit! The Spirit was so Strong in this Baptism i couldn't help it i was so overwhelmed and moved by the spirit when i saw Nestor the young man that was getting baptized in the font and with Elder Towns about to the ordnance and all i could think was how Jesus Christ did the exact same thing Trying to give us the Example of what we had to do  and i felt that what Nestor was doing was Exactly what God wants for all of us Then when he bore his testimony i felt like i was listening to a member of 15 years. He expressed simple feelings of happiness and Renewal but it was so strong so strong and i couldn't help but weep i Know that Baptism is the Key to get into his Kingdom and i know that is doesn't end there We gotta Endure and its not impossible i know its not because even in that Jesus Christ gave us that example when He endured everything to give His life for us He never stopped and said wait i cant no more it hurts too much He finished what He came here for and so can we Don't give up and remember that He lives and is always Rooting for us I love you guys and Happy Mothers day to all my Mommas!!!

Ezequiel Came to Church!!!!

OK well this week was great we ended this transfer super great with a huge miracle!! Ezequiel is a young father that has a lot of family and personal problems but he really desires to find the truth and feel true forgivness from God and well we have been trying to help him out but for almost a month he left us because of some unfavorable matireal that he had found about the church. But we 
knew that we needed to keep looking for him so after a month break we got the courage to call him and invite him to meet with us and if after this meeting he didnt feel that we were helping him get closer to God then we would leave him alone... We had to help him feel the Spirit the best way possible so that he could feel that relief that comes from the restored Gospel. And so we met with him and he Accepted to meet again and read the Book of Mormon again and pray about the church to know if this church is the only and true church of God and hecommited to come to church! Man were we so excited! and well Sunday came and HE CAME!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH we were so excited for him! we really hope that being there Sunday he could feel that that is where God wants him to be we pray for him and our other investigators that may be able to feel the spirit and make the desicion to keep investigating and one day make the choice to follow Christ even better by entering the waters of Baptisim! We are Pumped and we know there is alot to keep bettering ourselves in but we are happy to know that all things are possible through Christ
