This week was filled with ups and downs, but overall, it was another AMAZINGGGGGG week :) here is my week:
Tuesday: we had Elder Griffin with us and it was awesome. He's such a funny but extremely spiritual elder. We had an effective correlation meeting with the Jacobs and found some new families that they were teaching who were interested in the gospel. Soooooo we wrote down the names and addresses and we visited them all!! They weren't ready... It's okay though. Everyone has their time! Something that I have learned and swore to live by when teaching people is that to Heavenly Father, their direction is more important than their speed. We taught all our lessons today in the trailer park and they were all super nice families. One in specific is the Corona Family. They are a less active family but they've been coming more and more. Their son, Christian, is 8 years old and has expressed interest in being baptized. The thing is HE NEEDS TO COME TO CHURCH. Sooooo we've been stopping by and helping him progress towards his baptism. We also have been working with the family to get them to the temple. Later that night, we stopped by a non member family who really love the church and the priesthood. The husband was going to have a surgery the next day and wanted a priesthood blessing. Wow... That was such a spiritual experience for me! It was my first time giving a blessing in Spanish. I'm not sure how I knew all those words but I knew them and it was about 5 minutes. It was great!!!
It was a good week. I learned sooooooooo much this week! I would like to share a paragraph of my favorite talk called "What Lack I Yet" by Elder Larry R. Lawrence. Here it is: "A perfect time to ask, “What lack I yet?” is when we take the sacrament. The Apostle Paul taught that this is a time for each of us to examine ourselves. In this reverent atmosphere, as our thoughts are turned heavenward, the Lord can gently tell us what we need to work on next." My invitation to you all this week is to ask yourselves "What Lack I Yet?". I can promise you that when you do this the Holy Ghost can give you customized counsel. This customized counsel will bring peace and balance to your life that you can't find anywhere else except by the spirit.
I love you all,
