Just an Average Week

Well its been a good week and a hard one. I dont know what it is but we are just always SOOO Busy. Lots of work down here. Oh we had a nice Mircle this week as well. So were riding on a bus when this lady starts taking to another lady behind Hermana Mendoza. She starts going like hey you should come to church with me. And the other one is like no. I am searching for the true church. Ive been and studdied with almost all of them. This one I dont like. and This one is crazy. I dont like how the scream in this one. THis one breaks rules about praying. I like the JWs but theres something that I just cant find. I just want to find the true church. Ive been everywere except the mormons. Maybe ill go there next. And well with a conversation like that my companion HAD to say something. She turns around. gets her number and they get of the bus. THat night we call and put an appt. for the next day. We showed up and had an amazing lession. We taught all of L1 and she understood it like she was born in the Church. She has been searching for the fullness of the gospel for so long that I could just see that she Regconized it as soon as we started te lesson. She came to our English classes with the whole family and we gave more of a tour of the chapel. She loved it and so did her kids. She said she felt good and wanted to come Sunday as well. Bad news is SATAN kept her from coming on Sunday. But no worries because she is so smart and prepared for the Gospel that Im not worried. If she reads meditates and Prays. There will be no way she doesnt get an anwser because she is so ready. I love finding little gift from God like her and her family. Because I know that God used us to anwser her prayers and that She will have the guidences that she is looking for for her children. And I cant wait to testify of the Power of Eternal Famlies. Something that is so important that most people dont understand because they are missing part of the truth that has been restored! What a great blessing to be apart of her search for truth. And this is only the first week. I will keep you posted as we teach her! 

Part 2 of this week was to watch the tender mercies of the Lord work on a member who has fallen into one of satans hardest temptations. Im not gonna go into detail much but this week we had a lession with one of my favorite people here in Perez. She is amazing and has helped me so much to adjust here. Her love is just unexplainable. But she has had a tough go as member of the church and has been through lots of hard times. But all my time here we have preped her to go through the temple and I got to see that blessing that she recived. It was amazing. But little by little Satan has been working on her. As he does with all of us as we choose the right. The good path is never the easy path. But it is the path of happiness and blessings. But as We showed up at this dear womens house she was very discouraged. We talked about goals and what we want out of life and where we want to be in 5 10 20 years and what we want in the eternity. She struggled through the lession expressing how confused she is in this moment and how she doesnt know. We waited and talked as the spirit slowly testified to her of these things. We talked about things we have to GIVE UP in order to reach these goals. And then as we finished the lession she broke down and told us all. She told us about all she had been through and done and how she was just gonna take a break from going to church because she doesnt feel worthy to enter the building or do anything. We eplained so much about the atonement and the love God has for us that we cant earn. Its free. God does not love an obedient child more then a rebelous one. He loves us all the same. becuase we cant earn this love for good chooses. it it given to us for who we are. SOns and Daughters of heres. And through a hard long talk I finally told her that We should never stop doing good things because I did one thing bad. THats what satan wants. If I fall here and make a mistake but Im strong in another part of the gospel. God wants us to hold on to what we are doing good and slowly work on what is week. Satan wins when he makes us feel to guilty to read the scriptures or to pray. You should never stop doing good things just because you did one thing wrong. And prompted by the spirit I left a note as we left expressing the love we and her heavenly father has for her. But as we left I had little Confidence that we would see her at church tomorrow. But as the morning came I honestly forgot about the whole thing (cause I woke up sick and had a bad attitude haha) untill I saw her and her sweet 2 daughters walking towards the church that moring. Oh how great was our joy! I felt like God let me feel a little of the Joy he feels when his children repent. And its something I cant discribe. And after church she thinked us for everthing. She even went and talked to the prez and everything was fine. She was So scared to repent for what the consequences would be but as prez explained that we cant choose the consequences of our actions and only God can decided if we are forgiven. Sometimes we are harder on ourselfes then we shold be. We dont repent because of Fear. But this fear is what prolongs are repentence and leads us down a bad path. As It says in Isaiah

 18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white assnow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be aswool.

We start Repentance with a prayer were re Reason with the lord. And as we do he helps us to continue to do good things as we abandon the bad thing weve done. Im greatfull for this experience and so much more Ive had. But this is one I wanted to share. And I cant even explain the half of it or the difference of Light I saw in her face after she started the repentence process. Repentence is a gift. We should never be scared to leave bad things behind and walk towards a better tomorrow. That is where the Atonement comes in. I invite all to study more of the atonement this week because it will change your life as you put it in practice in your life. Theres 2 parts to the Atonement

To make bad men Good, and to make good men Better. It is for all. 

Hope everyone has a good week full with Misionary Experiences! Thanks always for your love and prayers. You have no Idea how much they help a missionary.
