I believe in Miracles!!!

I am so full of gratitude that I don´t have words to express it.  I am so happy to be in this place at this time with these people.  I wouldn´t have it any other way.

Our district is so pumped.  Our zone is so pumped.  We are united and excited and we are working as a team to reach our goals.  And the miracles are raining down upon us.  Our district leader shared these verses with us last night and we all feel the same: Alma 29:9-10, 13-17.  Nicely put. :)

So yesterday morning we went to wake everybody up for church.  We had a lot of people who committed to go, recent converts, less-active members, investigators.  They all live close so we decided to pass by for all of them.  We were highly disappointed.  Nobody opened the door.  We then went for the last family- familia GuiƱazu.  We knocked and said silent prayers.  This is an incredible family.  This week we had lessons with them where the Spirit was so strong.  We finish each lesson with a kneeling prayer at the door and there are hugs and kisses all around.  They hadnt been able to go to the church the past two weeks but this Sunday they were super committed.

We knocked he door and the dad opened it and invited us in- they were all running around, finishing getting ready!  Hermana Salinas helped braid hair and we were off!  I didnt stop smiling the whole ride in the colectivo.  The kids happily went to Primary and enjoyed it thoroughly.  We went with the parents to Gospel Principles and it was the best Gospel Principles class ever.  Hno Lema taught and it was on the gift of the Holy Ghost.  The Spirit was present during the whole lesson and all our investigators, of us and the Elders, were commenting on how they feel the Spirit in our lessons and never want that feeling to go away.  It was happy.

We also painted Stella´s house this week and it fun.  The house is full of light now.  We were happy they let us help.

God is a God of miralces.  He always has been and always will be.

I love you all very much.  Your pictures and emails lift me up and make me smile and cry and laugh.  May this week be bright. :)
