Never Alone...

So, being a missionary is like being on a reallllly long rollercoaster.... We have so amazing investigators, and most all of them are families! which is the icing on the cake! We feel the spirit together, I barely understand, but its getting better, little by little....Then sunday comes its 110 degrees, we are going to every investigators door, praying fervently please someone come to church. unfortunetly, satan gets in the way of alot of things. Even our recent converts for some reason was like pullllling teeth to get them to get ready, literally picking out their clothes...haha....It{s difficult here because we have to find a ride for each of the investigators, no one has cars....Finally we managed to drag one girl whos family just got baptized and now shes set for 17 de mayo. We missed half of church.....but im grateful that we were able to testify through our actions and persistance to our investigator how important it is to get up and go to church! Im trying to have faith next week atleast one family will go, please pray for the people of mexico!!!! They need to know people care! This week there were many ups and downs, but more ups. Im going to die with all this corn tortillas stomach can{t handle! the food is amazing here....agua frescas are the best! and the walking and heat keeps me thin. I noticed this week how much of the world I don{t see (in a good way) because my perspective is way different, how I see life is eternally....always follow your promptings, you never know what miricle will come after that act of faith!...stand up for your beliefs always..."The standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done." - Joseph Smith o<im not on a mission for my health...this is the work of the lord, it would be crazy to come here and go through all of this if these words were not true....but guess what they are!!! The spirit is what converts it{s not us. if this werent the truth we would get absolutely nothing done, we would just be two random women walking in the street preaching what we thought was true....but thats not the case....we are not alone.....D&C 84:88 "And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up."...I love you all, remember you are never alone, never, especially when you are standing in what is true, he will always be there to back you up. te ama muchomuchomucho.
