WHAT! I cant believe that this is the last week of this transfer. Next week we have changes! It is so crazy!! Time is literally flying. If freaks me out a little bit. This past week was awesome. We really saw miracles. Something sad that happened is that we received a call that Elder Nelson is not going to come to Guatemala... I was so sad because I literally was so excited! But on Friday we are going to have like a live broadcast from Salt Lake with him. So that will be awesome! Not the same, but still amazing and I am ready to learn so much to be able to change!
On Sunday we had a baptism!! wooohooo!! La Hermanita Carolina Mendez. She is the sister of Fernando. She is 25 and has three kids. Missionaries have taught her for like 2 years and she was about to get baptized like 2 years ago but decided not to. But the Lord prepared her and this was her time to get baptized and change her life! It was literally such a miracle. I am so happy for her and I know that this decision is going to bless her life forever. She has been passing through some really hard things. One of her daughters has seizures and her dad is really sick. they literally have no money. But she is relying completely on the Lord and has so much faith that everything is going to work out. It is so amazing to see her example and learn from her example as well.
I love the mission. I literally cant believe how fast time has flown by. Today in our district meeting we were talking about obedience and we had to share how our outlook on obedience has changed here on the mission. Obedience is so important. We should be obedient because WE LOVE GOD. not for obligation or fear. Here on the mission my desire to be obedient has grown so much. I literally have a list of things that I need to do my whole life to be obedient. I have changed so much through the atonement of Jesus Christ here on the mission and I know that I am going to keep changing more and more each day as I keep being obedient. What a blessing to have this time to change and become more like the Savior. I challenge all of your to choose a few things in your life that you can do to be more obedient. Obedience is an act of faith because sometimes we dont really understand why we have to be obedient to certain commandments. But as we obey with faith, our faith in the Lord and in the specific commandment will grow! Obedience is the first law of Heaven. And so if we are not obedient here on earth, we would not fit in or feel comfortable in the Heaven! Entonces... Hay que ser obedientes!!
I love you all so much and hope you all have a good week!!
