WOW the last two weeks have been GREAT FOR EMAILS and letters!! Dear elders are so GREAT!! Two from Sammie Krohn, and two DE DERITO!! you are lo Maxi mo!!
So a lot of changes in a little time, but what happened is my sector didn't close and they replaced the elders with two new elders in our zone an elder Pittam DE salt lake and elder Cruz DE Trujillo. T Hey are so great! always making jokes and reading great hilarious scriptures! So my and my companion have only our sector which is good because it is huge and we have a lot of work to do in our own sector. Whoosh last minute changes but all is fabulous now! my companion is very sweet and we are always laughing about great missionary stories of her past companion. and the time when we were teaching the first lesson in a park and i was given a gift of the palomos right on my jacket. yes a bird dedicated on me during a lesson. Needless to say this past week has just been very happy and always an adventure. We have gotten lost many times (I am so glad to have a patient companion I know parts of our sector well and others not so well) but in the end we always end up smiling and meeting new people and seeing miracles. We went looking for a members house and we knew the street but the number we were given didn't exist, so we started knocking doors and her neighbor came out to help us and we got to talking and bam a new investigator! she is so wonderful and takes care of her mother who is 88 and has Alzheimer s! Such an amazing example of service and faith.
Weeks are flying by and we are trying to keep time, but wow. so much to do in so little time!
Another great experience this week is realizing how important this work is. As missionaries we are the spiritual 911 of our whole sector!! People call us and say they need to talk and we grab our bags and hop to it! Through the authority and power of God we invite people to be spiritually saved through the atonement of Jesus Christ. WE are resuscitating the faith of all the people and every time we share a message we are administering medicine for their souls!! How great is this calling! But just like a doctor or EMT we need to be prepared with scriptures and the word of God to help people in their trials and problems. All problems can be solved in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Faith repentance baptism and the gift of the holy ghost and persevering to the end!
God is listening always and we are here in this earth to have the peace and joy and love of GOD every day in every moment especially in times of trial. keep your heads up and look for HIM because he is sitting with you in every low point!! I have learned a lot about this this week! Oh it is wonderful that he should care for me enough to die for me, oh how wonderful wonderful to me!
love you forever! have an inspirational week! I am praying for ya!
love hermana Atkinson. :)
