That’s sweet that Becca is going to serve in Ecuador! I have a Sister in my District from there!
This week has been very edifying for me. I have really focused on trying to do better with my prayers, studies, teaching and everything. This is when I can get that ‘last push’ in. I compare my last change / assignment to a game or working out. The last couple of minutes or seconds are crucial in a game and in working out. Those last couple of reps that really burn are what give you the strength, just as we work out to get those last couple of reps in that really hurt. I need to finish really strong and get that last change in that is really going to give me a lot of growth.
I have felt the Lord’s hand this week and we have had wonderful experiences. On Tuesday we contacted someone in a tienda (store) and she let us teach here in the store so we taught her two times last week and she went to church! I really love the last lesson we had with her. We taught her about Christ’s life and what he did and then we led her into a cliff-hanger, recounting the great apostasy and she had a lot of questions, which is a big sign that she wants to learn. You can only learn through questions. We left her with an assignment to read and she is going to search for answers. That is how we are helping people here become self reliant. I can’t wait to have the next lesson with her! Also, a returned Sister missionary here is helping to fellowship and teach her, so she has a friend right now in the Ward. Things are going well.
Love all of you! And I hope we are all keeping up with the ‘apresurando la obra’ (hastening the work). If we don’t, we will be left behind.
Love you all,
Here’s the ‘bano exterior’ (outhouse):
