Happy Monday!
The great news!! Hermana Sewell and I get to stay together for another beautiful 6 weeks! We recieved a text saturday saying that we were getting a transfer call, we were sad. Then at about 10:15 we received a call from the Elders saying, we made a mistake, you are staying together! So we were very happy. God keeps putting amazing people in our path. Aurora is the greatest!
The weekly miracle: We finally got back into see our referral Hermano Pecheco. We have been stopping by all week, but for some reason he was never there. We drove past his house yesterday and saw his wife outside. We pulled off to the side and said a quick prayer, and hopped out to say hello. Our first impression of her was not the best, she had told us that they had a religion and that we should not waste our time to come back. Turns out, she is searching too. She was not open but as we began teaching the restoration and testifying of Joseph Smith, the spirit was so strong. She began crying and said she thinks this was the answer to her prayers. We set a baptism date, unfortunately they are going out of town for about 2 weeks but were very relieved when we told them we could change the date for when they return and are ready. I absolutely love teachings the restoration and testifying of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. It is so powerful and changes hearts! Of that I can testify.
I am recently struggling with feeling like I am following the spirit. We had many experiences this week that confirmed to me that God is leading the work. On friday we were trying to find a building on lilac but couldnt find it. We decided to knock a random door to ask for directions. I dont think the word random is in Gods vocab. We met Mariella, she is a single, pregnant mother, who has been though alot. She is the most humble person and so receptive to the spirit. Crazy that we found her on friday morning because she said that is the only day she is ever home, friday at 11.
As if that wasnt crazy enough, that happend about 3 more times just friday. The days when all your plans fall through, its just because God has other plans for you. MIRACLES!! They happen everyday people!
Well hopefully you got my pictures! Love you all! I hope you have a great week and a wonderful fathers day!! This is my favorite mormon message of all time!! I think it brings the fathers day spirit!! Les quiero mucho!! Gracias por todo! earthly father, heavenly father!
Thank goodness for fathers :)
Con mucho amor!
