Hey family! Sounds like you guys had an awesome, and suuppper busy week! I'm so happy to hear it.
Kacey, Karley sent me pictures of the zipline last week, it looks insane but so fun!! Sounds like you had a blast.
Mom, Thank you for your fasting and your prayers... you've been giving me the strength I need to keep on working hard, and I have no doubt that your help has contributed to the miracles we had this week. LOVE YOU
Dad, sounds like it was a good sacrament meeting this week. Cool story about the Australian family! I'm so glad Brett's recital went well and that WORK WAS BUSY. That makes me so happy! Definitely keep me posted on Coco! Well Dad, just remember that a lot of it has been influenced by you and mom. Seriously, you two are the best examples for all of us. Just know that my testimony has grown 100 fold since I've been here, and it's only going to grow more. I know what's at stake, and I know WHY I'm active in the church and that isn't going to change. Thank you for your examples for us. Brett's going to learn so much on his mission. I know you miss us, but just remember what we're doing :) It's weird, a year ago today I was in Boston...in your mission...and now I'm in Peru on MY mission! Life is nuts. I love you daddy!
HAPPY 8 MONTH MARK haha
Well, this has been the most exhausting, miraculous, amazing week of my mission...and I didn't even have a baptism...YET haha.
Monday was a super fun pday, and then right after we went out and worked HARD. Hermana Kim and I have been trying to put into practice EXACT obedience and the things we have been learning from President Archibald and Elder Waddell...and guess what...it's working. Thank you for all of your prayers and fasting because I know it's been helping too.
Monday night we went to visit L...the lady that found us in the park a few weeks ago. We hadn't been able to visit her for a while, because she had just been swamped with things to do and we had a hard time getting ahold of her. But this time we finally got to go. Well she had invited her younger sister to come listen to us. We taught her sister, E....and L.'s son S. We invited them to be baptized and they both immediately said yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! E said that she has cousins that are LDS and that she has always loved the way they live and the people that they are. She said that she's just been WAITING for us to show up and invite her to be a part of the church. The spirit was SO strong there.
We worked hard with them, and also trying to find new people, and also working hard with conversos and menos activos. It was a crazy week, we had more lessons than I've EVER had in one week....we came home atexhuasted every night, but SO SO HAPPY.
I feel so humbled and so blessed this week. I have a testimony that the Lord really is preparing His children to receive the gospel. I can see R and L going to the temple in a year and sealing their family for all eternity. It's so beautiful. Thank you for all of your prayers, fasting, and support...and pllleease keep it coming! I love you all so much and I'm so grateful for everything you've been doing for me. There are angels all around helping this work move along.
Have an amazing week!!!
Con todo mi amor,
