White Wash TMM

SO: This week we have knocked so many doors!! Mostly because we did a White Wash of the mission. AKA we dropped/stopped teaching the people that weren't progressing (i.e. not coming to church, reading, praying, etc.) and we didn't have very many people to begin with, but we still dropped those that we had, and are starting afresh!

We got a little discouraged near Thursday, but kept our animo going. What has really helped is that we have been unified as a companionship. That and the Spirit and just being willing to go and do (not sit and stew) have really kept our animo/spirits up.

This week we have many-a-return-appointments, and we are very excited for all the people that we have met this last week. DUDE we are so pumped!! During the week, probably Thursday, we just kind of sat in the car (cooling off for a few minutes before we went out to work again) and I just said "I am ready for my blessings now!!" But we continue on in patience and in hope that the elect are here, and we are growing so much in the process!

God will help us in whatever we are going through. Sometimes (oftentimes) God needs us to trudge through the mud, or climb EVERY mountain. But it's always for our best. God knows where all the prepared people are here in San Benito, but what good would that do us if he just sent us there? We need to be converted. We need to be obedient to every prompting we receive. That's really what God is asking of us. And bringing someone to the Gospel of Jesus Christ is just a nice bonus along the way. :)

Love y'all!

A couple weeks ago we had a friend hang out with us for a while (actually he FELL FROM A TREE and scared us half to death). But enjoyed the ride!

(no subject)

Tuesday we had exchanges, so I went with Sister Cademis to Brownsville! It was fun because I got to see my MTC companion, Sister Nischan! It was fun to be with two previous companions!

Wednesday I found some more family names to send to the temple!! Yay! and on Friday I helped a sister find information about her dad, and we found a marriage record and his birth record! The gift of tongues is real because somehow I helped her read this scribbled-old-cursive-document IN SPANISH. It was crazy!

Yesterday I "played" the piano in Sacrament meeting, and couldn't figure out why the organ setting was so quiet--the volume was all the way up! Then I remembered that little pedal thing and I made it louder. Haha. Oh the joys of being a missionary.

We are still finding and contacting and finding. The Zone leaders called us on Saturday and reminded us that President Torres and Heavenly Father trust us and put us in this area for a reason. And we need to do everything we can to do His will here. They also challenged us to make a goal of how many times we teach the Restoration this week. So we will be growing our testimony of that as well. They promised that we would be able to find more people so we are going to cash in on those blessings this week!

I love being a missionary! The church is true, wherever you are in the world! Be humbe, follow your leaders, and read some scriptres!
Love you!
