Ive just been really happy lately. Life is good, im just happy doing what im doing and enjoying every minute! People are just the best here, love em. And nothing better than sharing the gospel.
This week our ward went to the temple. It was cool to see converts go for the first time and here that they had an awesome experience. They are planning to go again in April, and it makes me realize HOW blessed we are that if we wanted, we could go EVERY day! These people do all they can to pay and have the chance to go to the temple. Its really a test of faith for them! But it makes them appreciate it so much more. They drove back Saturday night, so were pretty tired at church, but thats okay because my comp and I spoke in sacrament..:)
So Paulo is doing AWESOME. Daniela's nephew. He wants to change his life SO bad, has seen so many changes in his family's life. He told us that he is drinking way less, and now he is reading the Book of Mormon, and making little small changes. It is cool to see how before he was so not into in and all the sudden he is wanted to be a part of it. Everyone's time always comes.
Interesting week. Like all of Tumbes either has the flu or chicken pox, and its SAINTS month! Which means that there are random saints being worshipped ALL OVER THE PLACE. Just makes things really interesting around here. This week there was a Señor de los Milagros fiesta right in front of our house, the whole street was decked out with banners and baloons. We actually had plans to visit a bunch of people around where we live this week, bad idea because when we went to visit them they were busy decorating. :) But its easy to spot out people who need the gospel! It is very interesting to see how things in the scriptures are in real life.
Love God, love my Savior, know this church is true! Every day is just another testimony to me that we have the truth and we are so blessed! Helping people to understand the Atonement in their lives is one of my favorite things. Because it is the best thing we have, and my testimony is strengthened every time. Love you all, have the best weeeek!!
