**Note- There is a new address for the mission office where we send her mail***
Hello!!! ok first of all CONGRATULATIONS TO TAYLOR AND SAM!!! That's sooo exciting! I always feel the spirit so strong when I read someone's mission call! And I want Sam's and Hilary's addresses! Ok so I have like no time to write! This week was good. We found this girl the other week that i'm really excited about teaching. She's like 19 and she's with a different religion right now but she's really just looking for the truth in her life. The problem is that she is only home on Saturdays because she works and has school all the rest of the week. So we went there for the 2nd time on Saturday and shared lesson one with her. It was awesome. The spirit was really strong. And after I asked her if she wanted to know if the Book of Mormon was true and she said yes and I asked her why. And she basically said that if there really is a true church out there she wants to be a part of it. she's really awesome, and I'm praying that she's another Emilio or Alcides. That's what we're looking for, los escogidos. The chosen ones. Hahaha oh my gosh! And I LOVED Ty's email!!! haha let him know I am praying for him all the time. Speaking of crazy people, I got proposed again this week...I think if this keeps happening I'm going to start taking pictures of these men and after the mish we'll take a poll of which one I should marry. Haha chiste. Ok something I do want to share before I leave is that yesterday we had a class in church about the importance de la obra misional...missionary work. And it was funny because before the class in sacrament meeting, while i took the sacrament that is all I was thinking about. I was just feeling so overwhelmed with gratitude that I have this opportunity to be a missionary because my eyes have really been opened. All my life I have known that the church is true but now I understand why it is so important to know that and how important it is to share that knowledge with everyone! It makes me excited! Thanks mom for sending me the copy of the first vision, it really opened my eyes otra vez. How powerful that simple statement is. "...I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me. It no sooner appeared than I found myself delivered from the enemy which held me bound. When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other---This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!" JS History 1:16-17 From this statement we know that God and Christ are two separate beings. That they live. That they love us. That God answers prayers. That the heavens once again are opened. That we can receive personal revelation. That the church has been restored on the earth again. That Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, called of God to bring to pass the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. That we have the priesthood authority on the earth today and a living prophet; Thomas S. Monson. Wow the gospel is so true! Love it! Love yall! Spread this message! Have a great week!
