W0w the end of another transfer is upon me! I only have 2 agendas left…. and 3 months, time FLIES by the last 6 months. But I’m not anxious about it yet, and probably won’t be at least until October so no worries there!!
Some news for the week starting with the least important.
We can wear hats now…. wahoo??
I ALMOST STEPPED ON THE RAT THAT HAS TAKEN UP RESIDENCE IN OUR HOUSE **we are buying veneno hoy!*
My companions are levaing meeeee on Wednesday in the morning. I’m really gonna miss them…. but there should be some new sisters and new faces to see so I’ll let y’all know next week what happens.
WE CAN NOW WEAR PANTS bum bum bum! I am SO PSYCHED, only problem is that there are a bunch of weird rules and arreglos that have to be made, but I will be making some phone calls and hopeully be wearing pants by the end of the week 😉
So we did some super cute heart attacking this week! It took literally NOTHING! Only like 20 minutes and 8 bolivianos! I was on intercambios a couple days this week, with some of the younger sisters here in the mission (here in the house en Trinidad) and we had some fun activities while everyone else was at concilio. It was fun! And we baked some cookies! Although I think we forgot to take pictures of that.
Also, I don’t know WHERE I was reading in the scriptures. I’m assuming in first Nephi, but I realized that the line in the sand is being drawn. We are living in the LAST DAYS before Christ will come in His glory to reign as King of Kings, we MUST be prepraed for that. The only way, anyone anywhere can be prepare for that time that is rapidly approaching is if we receive the gospel; not only into our lives but more importantly into our HEARTS! The trigo y cizñana, the wheat and the tares, are being separated from each other NOW! NOW is the moment in which the Lord is calling, NOW is the moment that He is working. The Bible takes SO MUCH about he last days, and as memebr of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we know that those prophecies are being fulfilled NOW. You don’t have to go far to see that, I don’t even have to explain any for you to know what it is I am talking about. There is nothing wrong with saying that the Lord is gathering ISRAEL NOW. Sometimes, as members, and even now as a missionary people might shame us or think we are foolish for believing such things, but they are in the wrong. The Lord is working His great and marvelous work among His children right now as we speak. The work is coming forth and the line is being drawn in preparation for His coming.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine,and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Phrase of the week.. Forget Yesterday. Focus on Today. Ponder on Tomorrow.
Medetizar-2 Nephi 4:5 But behold, my sons and my daughters, I cannot go down to my grave save I should leave a blessing upon you; for behold, I know that if ye are brought up in theway ye should go ye will not depart from it.
Love y’allllllll, see you stateside in about 3 months!
