Week 69-November 24, 2015
sounds like everyone is doing great!!! and that everyone is excited for christmas!!! me too!!! :)
thanks for the letters and package!!!!! i will try to send letters and stuff for christmas if i can haha the package i got is for christmas? should i open it?
this week was great. ariel gets baptized! but we still have to teach a ton so its kinda crazy. but we are excited :)
silvia is still quitting smoking, and raquel and fransisca camebut guess what?! raquel is already a member :P oh chile..haha but hey its all good because fransisca can get baptized and her husband too! :P so we will keep working with them. anyway we had a meeting this week with pres and it was super good. it made me really think about how God blesses us when we are obedient and cant when we decide not to be obedient. i feel like in my life like taylor said our family has been SOOOOO blessed its almost crazy. i decided 99 percent of the blessings i have received and enjoyed personally come from the obedience of mo m and dad. seriously. i feel like their faith and testimonies and sacrifices literally have made all the difference in our lives and it makes me scared to move away or such because im not as good as mom and dad and wont receive the same blessings :P haha i think ill just keep living in the house forever and never move out or get married :P what do you think dad? but seriously i realized one of the big reasons i wanted to serve a mission was so tht i could become a little more like mom. i told that to an investigator who is pregnant this week and she started crying lol i feel like i have so many flaws but Christ literally promises to change us, thats the purpose of life, literally cchange our desires and ideas and everything about us. hopefully we will die a completely different person from who we were when we were 10, or 18, etc. the goal is become who God wants us to be, not who we want to be. but we have tendencies and are rebelious and lack faith and such and so we need lots of grace... hopefully God has made me a little more like mom in these last 15 months...:P
oh and funny fact,we ate patitas de serda for lunch...cows feet. it was actually pretty good...
oh and mom can you send me the recipe for lasagna?
