It's been like 5 days since I have written, so I don't feel like I have a ton to say. This is my district. We cover the whole island in English and Spanish.
We had a crazy week. We had a meeting on Tuesday and Thursday. We changed P-day to Wednesday to go to the temple and had a service project of Friday. So our time got cut down a lot this week and we ended up in the car quite a bit (as shown below). But the Lord is merciful and continued to help and bless us as we did all we could.
Angel is doing amazing!! We taught her the word of Wisdom and when we saw her two days later she hadn't smoked since the lesson! She also had read three chapters in The Book of Mormon because she likes it so much.
Paloma and her niece Demitria came to church this week and when we talked about prophets, Demitria said "Wow. Cool. When is Conference? Can I go?"
Speaking of General Conference, it is only a month away!!!! Are you all so excited? Conference in like Christmas on the mission. Actually maybe even better. What are your ideas to prepare for Conference? I am trying to reread all the talks in Spanish.
The other day we read the talk "Which Way Do you Face?" It says:
Trying to please others before pleasing God is inverting the (see Matthew 22:37–39). It is forgetting which way we face. And yet, we have all made that mistake because of the fear of men. In Isaiah the Lord warns us, “Fear ye not the reproach of men” (Isaiah 51:7; see also 2 Nephi 8:7).
I know that I always want to face our Heavenly Father because despite my flaws, He loves me. And He has a perfect plan. I know that His will is always better than ours. I know that Jesus Christ lives and loves us. This is His gospel and I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to share it.
