Hola mis queridos!
This week we were on fire!! Con fuego!! I really loved the Zone Conference we had and the spiritual boost that those always bring. Hermana Rogers and I are looking for even more ways to be on fire everyday!!
An awesome miracle we saw this week was when we picked up a new investigator named Annalee. She just moved here from Mexico about three days ago, and we met her two days ago! It was actually a more in-depth miracle of how we found her as well because we had received a referral of someone else that lived down the street from her but that family was not Hispanic (although they have a Hispanic last name) so we were walking back from knocking on that door to get in our car when a random member pulled up next to us and asked if we needed help. We asked her if she knew of any Hispanics in the area and she mentioned the house where Annalee now lives. This house belongs to an active member who is Hispanic but goes to an English ward! We knocked on her door and she let us in to share a brief message with her. At the end of the message we asked if she knew of any other Hispanics in the area and she said “...yeah! My friend and her husband are moving into my basement next week and they aren’t members but have good Christian beliefs!” It was amazing! Then we went by the next week and we were able to meet Annalee and she had never met with missionaries before and absolutely loved the message we shared about eternal families and told us that she and her husband had just been talking about that a few days before. It was so perfect! She is so golden and she and her husband came to church yesterday and they absolutely loved it. They are awesome!
Something I have been studying and pondering this week has been the life of President Monson. It was so good to be able to watch his funeral; it was so touching. One of my favorite talks ever from President Monson was his brief but powerful talk on the Book of Mormon less than a year ago. It was his last talk and his plea to us was to cherish the Book of Mormon more and to read it everyday. I love the Book of Mormon and since then it has been my goal to read it every single day! His ministry truly has made a significant impact on my life and I am forever grateful for his service and dedication. Because of the revelation he received a few years ago I was able to serve a mission over this past year and a few months!! And it is the best thing ever.
