My companion and I spent the whole night in the bathroom. Vomiting and with terrible diarrhea. (I'm sparing you the gory details--trust me!) I guess I am still not used to the fruits here I guess.... But because I'm not functioning properly, I will do my quick copy-and-paste emails and wish you all the best week! :)
"Our week was interesting. We had a really cool lessonwhere an investigator who wasn't all that positive (She's a viejita that assists a different church....) had a really interesting dream the before when we took her grandson to church. She said that she was half-awake when we came to the door to pick up Fernando, but we didn't enter the room alone. There was this tall, white man with us--white as in Gringo, but also dressed in white. He just shined, she said. And she told us that she knew it was revelation from God telling her that He....anda con nosotras? Umm....how do I say that.....He is with us? Anyway. She thought it was the coolest thing ever and ended up committing to come to church with us. She ended up not coming, but allowed her grandson to, so we'll get her next week! But that's not the best part.
I love her anyway. And I know Heavenly Father does too. She even prayed for us, President! She came and touched our heads and arms and blessed us with safety and that the bad men on the street will leave us alone and she said something about "falta de respeto...." I hope she wasn't referring to us. Because we did NOT have a falta de respeto! Maybe she was asking forgiveness for the falta de respeto that she had shown to us.... A saber. But all I can say is that this mujer joven that came with us was just......peeved with this lady. She shared her testimony, too, and as we left, we talked about how grateful we are to belong to the one and only true church of Jesus Christ.
I love Heavenly Father. I love Jesus Christ. I am grateful to José Smith for being a worthy instrument in the hands of the Lord to be able to restore Christ's Church again on the earth today. I would be ever so lost if I didn't have the guide of this gospel in its fulness. All that I am and all that I will be is because a boy of 14, went into the woods to pray, and I decided to do the same. Tal vez I didn't go to the woods, but I have prayed and I have received that witness. It is because of that witness that I am here. I love being able to invite everyone to do the same each and every day and to act on that answer to receive His blessings."
I love and pray for you all. :) Thanks for being such a great support for me.
