Felicidades sanford indians!!!!!!!!!!! :)))))))))))
Wow! Let me just tell you that this weekend i was doing my exercise, and all of sudden i thought, "whoa! Tonight is the championship night for basketball..." and from that moment on, i forgot hahahahahahahaha its crazy how different the thoughts are when im not right in the middle of basketball! But i am so excited and proud!!! Of both chance and ember!! You guys really showed you heart and your love the game!!!! :) congrats!!!!!!!!
Well my week was a good one! But also kinda hard! Tuesday my comp got sick with this new sickness that is going around, chikinguya! Its kinda like denguea..but different! Well she was really sick this week so she couldnt work too much! We couldnt find sisters who could leave with me and stay with her too much! So our work was a little slow! But we did see miralces! Everyday i was able to leave with a sister to work at least 2 hours in the area! It is a lot less than normal..but we were able to do it!!:) but last night i was giving the dats for the week to my district leader, and i was a little bummber because they were low! But he asked me, "hermana, do you feel the lord is pleased with the work you did this week?" and i answered, "not really, our dats are super low!" and then he said, "do you feel your investigators are increasing their faith in christ?" "yeah.." "do you feel they are starting to repent of their sins?" "the majority.." "ok, now i will ask again, do you feel the lord is please with the work you did this week?" "yes :)" that really helped me! I know that the mission isnt about numbers, but i was feeling kinda down! But after talking with him, i felt a lot better! Its true! We are here to help people increase their faith in jesus crhist! If we help them do that, they we are successful and the lord is pleased! There is always more we can do, but we arent doing this work alone!!! :)
Also this week we did a bunch of service projects! Friday we went with the other sisters to help an investigator build his house! But we really just watched the elders dig a big a hole and we made fresco! :) hahahaha but saturday we helped!! We went up into the mountains (like 30 minutes in a taxi) to help haul wood for an investigator of some elders! Let me tell you...the guatemalans are rockstars!! They carry the wood on their heads and backs! And its insane! But it was great to help him! He said that the amount that we hauled would have taken a whole day to do! And we did it in less than 2 hours! The people here are so humble and dont ask for help much! So it was great to be able to help them anyway!! :) also..i hope you like the pics! :) my camera doesnt do guatemala justice, but believe me, its beautiful!!!! :)
So something i learned yesterday in church, (sorry its in spanish..google translate lol) "el testimonio es una de las pocas posesiones que podemos llevar con nosotros al dejar esta vida!" it says that our testimony is one of the only things we can take with us when we leave this life! That means that we need to first, have a testimony!!! Also, that we need to work everyday to make it strong! If the only thing we have to go on is our testimony in the next life, it better have a lot of battery life!!!! :) so thats our challenge this week canty family! (and bradley family, and biergier..ha sorry for the spelling..family!) Strengthen our testimonies!!!!!! :)
I love you all so much and am so glad you are my family! You are such a strength to me and i hope you feel my love!!!!!:) good luck with every thing this week and hopefully you can all make it to spring break ;)
