Week Twenty Six - Amazing Converts and a New Friend From Murray!
My most dearest friends and family,Well, I am happy to hear that all is peachy and wonderful back home. I miss you all greatly. I think about you all often. And it brings a sonrisa to my face hearing about the blessed lives you all live. We had a zone conference on Thursday. We talked about how the first point of the first lesson we share is "God is our Loving Heavenly Father". We talked about WHY that is the very first thing we generally share with people. We were asked to really think about what it means to us to know that God is our Loving Heavenly Father. What does it mean to you? I know that I have a Loving Heavenly Father, and my testimony of this has grown and is constantly growing as I recognize and realize all the things that he has done for me and blessed me with. Because I know the God is my Loving Heavenly Father, I know that he will help me be my best self. I know that he will prepare a way for me to accomplish what I came here to do. I know that he will prepare a way for me to find eternal happiness. And I know he does and will do the same for all of you! I am grateful to have a knowledge that God is my Loving Heavenly Father.
We finally got Michael Chefchis to come to church for the first time since he was baptized 8 months ago. It was a pain in the behind though, I felt like I was looking after a 6 year old! Luis also came to church for the second week in a row. We went to the singles ward with him and he seemed to really like it! There are lots of great young folks in that ward that tried to make him feel at home. I gave a Book of Mormon card to a lady with an Albanian accent thinking it might be a Spanish accent. Are they close or was that just a way off assumption? We had a pretty typical week. No real milagros, nothing too devastating. Just another week in el campo.
-I got the package with my pants and ring and bag and chocolates. Gracias! Other than that, I don't remember receiving anything else.
-You can hold off on pizza until maybe next week. We have lots of member dinners this week. Thanks though!-We haven't seen David for three weeks. He thought he would only be in prison for a week, but he is still in there and he doesn't know when he will be free. He tried calling me the other night, the it said it would cost 10 bucks for 10 minutes, so I panicked and hung up. I didn't know what to do! Hopefully he will be out soon and call us once he is free.
