April 21


Good afternoon everyone. I hope everyone had a really good Easter weekend!! It was really intersting here this weekend for us because of Semana Santa. The streets were empty. Desolate. Everyone went to el D.F. and nobody wanted to talk to us because of the vacation. It was really hard, but we met some really nice familes and we're going to visit them this week.

A scripture that i read this week. and fell in love with it. proverbs 3:5,6

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Clean Apt. Award!

We had interviews with president. omg that man is called by God. seriously. after talkign to him i felt so inspired and just full of the spirit. He always has the right words to say. cambiuos are next tuesday. yikes. i hope i stay here. i have grown so close to the members. oh! and i spoke during sacrmaent this past sunday. i was last and they left me like 20 mins haha it was terrible. but i talked reallllyyyyy slowwwww haha so i took up just enough time. and other converts spoke too. it was so neat seeing them speak. i loved it.

One thing I feel prompted to share with everyone is something that a recent convert told us. That after she was baptized... no one visited her. Ever. Not once. She felt really lonely and that she didn't matter anymore because she was already baptized and on to the next. It made me really sad to hear this, because we talk about it every Sunday. Love, charity, humility, that we are ALL brothers and sisters. She is such a strong convert and has a solid testimony. She's a big example to me because despite of her experience with the church, she knows that the gospel is true. I hope that we can all lend a hand to our neighbor, co.-worker or person that sits alone at church. It shouldn't be like that. Gordon B. Hinckley nailed it when he said "Every convert needs a friend, a responsibility, and nurturing with the good word of God.” But we all need that. I've noticed here that most people are going through some pretty rough patches and they just need someone to ask them if they're okay or what we can help with. OR like Jeffrey R. Holland says, that listening is more important than what we say. (I'm paraphrasing). We got a lot of work to become more like Christ. I know I sure do!! I hope everyone has a super chido week.
