Rocio is Mormon:)

My heart is full when I think of Rocio.  She is incredible.  This week before her baptism she was so full of faith and so excited to take this important step.  She wants to know everything!  She asks what more she can do, what more she can learn, and she sees obedience as a quest, not an obligation.  She shares her testimony openly and was telling the investigators of the other Hermanas in church yesterday how being baptized is just the best thing they can do.  Already a missionary.  I love her.  And her little boy, Benji, is adorable.  Future missionary. :)
We had divisions this week with the Hermanas Lìderes Entrenadoras and it was incredible.  I learned so much.  It is always good when we get to work with other missionaries because it helps us see more clearly how we can improve.  I was with Hermana Gonçalves, de Brasil.  It was lovely.
We found a woman this week that had been meeting with the missionaries before.  Her son passed away a year ago and she feels very sad.  She said she liked the message and went to church once but after that she still felt very sad.  We talked about the Plan of Salvation and the Atonement of Jesus Christ.  We asked is she would pray and she said she doesn't like to because she cries.  After a minute she decided to do it and she prayed a heart-felt prayer.  And Heavenly Father heard it.  And I learned once again that God is aware of each one of us.  We often feel lost but God has given us a Shepherd, and He really is searching diligently to find us.  It is the best feeling ever to be found.
Family, I love you.  Thanks for the prayers and the love.  I am the luckiest girl.
