I hope all of you had a great day and were able to celebrate the mothers and mother figures in all of your lives. I was so thrilled to skype with mom and dad yesterday who are seriously the cutest people ever I think. I snagged one of my favorite photos of them yesterday that I just gotta share with you all (:
This week was so packed with so many crazy things and some awesome moments with our investigators!! Last Pday we had a celebration for the Elders who left for their homes in Argentina, the next day was Zone Conference, this past Friday we had to throw together a skit for Mission Night (you all can see my wicked moustache and guitar getup for our little number ha) and yesterday we Skyped with all our parents! This week flew by and I am ready to get back into our regular work schedule and really dive into visits with the investigators.
Also, this past Saturday the Elders had a baptism in our area and we got our investigator Fatima AND her mom Esperanza--who has been really reserved about the church--to come to the baptism! It was so amazing and Hermana Estrella in the ward gave a fantastic message. Fatima and Esperanza are really enjoying the activites and meetings we have, and we hope that they can start to dedicate their church attendance. Fatima has come 3 times but here mom and dad have yet to show up. We are working super diligently with them though and the young single adults have been awesome with Fatima!! (:
This week I found some of my favorite verses from Paul. I love his opinion and testimony on the need for women to be modest:
I LOVE that. That women must ADORN themselves with good works and not concern themselves so much on the materialistic items. If we are to profess ourselves as god-like and puff ourselves up to the status of Him who is perfect--HE would never declare His name Glorious for the price of the things He owns, but the invaluable and SAVING worth of the mercy and good works He does. The glory of things temporal have an expiration date that fades way too soon in the eternities. If we want REAL glory, REAL beauty, and memories that LAST, we must take upon us the name of Christ and live as he did--charitably and lovingly and beautifully.
Thanks everyone for enduring all the caps, italicized, and underlined Internet preaching I do each week, but all of you really do matter and its just not enough to sit back and say an email would never help. I sincerely pray that the Spirit enters your hearts when you read these scriptures and that my words may be of some help. There is so much power in gospel study and it`s a privile
ge for me to share a portion of what I study day to day (:
Love you all and wish you the best of the best this week! (:
