GOOD AFTERNOON CANTY FAMILY!!!! :))))))
how are all of you doing!?!?! well i will not waste much time and get right to it!
this week was a good one!!!:))) i learned a lot about the will of our Heavenly Father!! :) so story time! we have this investigator named Nancy. she is 17 and about a year ago she met with the Elders, but didnt get baptized bc she went back home. well we found her one day after we went to the Benson for la Semana Santa. she wrote her name a paper and said we could visit her, and so we did!! :) well she is SO PILAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! every thursday we have this thing called "Noche De Hermanamiento" (its like a big FHE with the ward in the house of a member!) and we invited Nancy to come! we werent really sure if she was going to be able to, BUT SHE CAME!!!!! and she even shared an experience in front of everyone!! it was so cool! this girl is serious PREPARED!!! i was so proud of her! she has so much faith and so much love for God!!! :))))) we are gonna visit her tonight to set a date for baptism!! :)
also this week the work was good, a little slow but good!!! :))) our area is having a little trouble and sometimes i just dont know what to do and feel like im not doing anything here. but then i look at the investigators like Nancy and the CONVERTS i have here like Maria Ines, and i am reminded WHY I AM HERE!!!! :)))))))) Maria Ines is more pilas than i ever was at 12 years of age!!
also, we are doing a SUPER COOL video as missionaries here! idk if you guys have heard about the new movie that the church made, "Meet the Mormons" but it is SO great!!!!!!! and june 5 we are gonna show it here in Malacatan!!! :))))) but to make it more personal we are doing our own personal "meet the mormons of malacatan" haha and so we have recorded our recent converts, menos activos, and members of the ward sharing their testimonies to put it on before the real movie! and let me tell you!! ITS SO POWERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hopefully i can get a copy to show you all!! :))))
but just to close i want to share something that i read this week! (i have been studying the ensign from nov and am discovering SO much!!!!!) but in the talk by Elder Tad R. Callister he is talking about parents and the youth and i LOVED this part of his talk:
No doubt most of our youth have their evening prayers, but perhaps many of them struggle with the habit of personal morning prayer. As parents, as their prime gospel teachers, we can correct this. Which parent inBook of Mormon times would have let their sons march out to the front of battle without a breastplate and shield and sword to protect them against the potentially mortal blows of the enemy? But how many of us let our children march out the front door each morning to the most dangerous of all battlefields, to face Satan and his myriad of temptations, without their spiritual breastplate and shield and sword that come from the protective power of prayer? The Lord said, “Pray always, … that you may conquer Satan” (D&C 10:5). As parents, we can help instill within our children the habit and power of morning prayer.
its SO TRUE what he says!!!! we would NEVER send our soliders out to war with out guns and amor, but yet as youth we leave the house without first arming ourselves with the amor and power of prayer!!!!! just an invitation that you can try to pray before you the house!!! :) TRUST ME IT HELPS!!!!
anywho...thats about all i have right now. but i just want you all to know that i KNOW that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us! i know they are watching over us and constantly protecting us! we are SO LUCKY to be members of His church! dont ever let a day go by without realizing the blessings we have!! I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!! have a great week!! :)
