Ok I figured Photos speak a thousand words so I will send a short letter and a bunch of photos!! YAY! if these send one is of Hermana S and hermana C and our awesome halloween festival in their house when I was with them for just about a week while my companera was in the hospital. They are so funny and these few days were the funniest happiest just loving knoking on doors and talking with everyone in Las brisas. Translated means the breezes. Well named because one street smells like one thing and the next moment smells totally different. Its amazing how different streets smell.....for the good and the bad. But just a week of pure laughter and adventrues while my companion was in the hospital. Needless to say we REALLY enjoyed the halloween package and the cookies and the Elders loved the skittles and almond joys!! I may have eaten all the cookies almost all by myself!! AW chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies HOW I HAVE MISSED THEEEEEE!!
My companion is better now that she has rested for a few days in the hospital with some heavy antibiotics to help her body heal. We are taking it slow we try to walk slow so her foot won´t swell up again and she is taking pills to help her foot not swell so we keep marching on. I am SO GLAD I DON¨T have health problems!! I was thinking about it and never in my life have I been in the hospital or really sick that I can really remember!! Count your many blessings name them one by one! But the miracle is that when my companion was in the hospital and I was in another sector we couldn´t visit our investigator with a baptism date. Needless to say we were both praying like NADA MAS that God could watch out for him when we couldn´t. I tried to call him every day to see if he was progressing but couldn´t get a hold of him or nothing. But as I was praying in the morning thrusday for God to give me a sign that my faith wasn´t in vain I ended my prayer and JUST LIKE THE MOVIE best two years the phone started to ring and it was Roberto and he asked Hermanas when will you visit me my baptism is this saturday!! So when my companion got out of the hospital that afternoon we vistited him he had his interview friday and saturday in the morning was baptized and sunday confirmed a memeber of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!! God is always listening to every prayer and we basically did nothing. Roberto is His convert we were only tools in his hands to do the basic stuff and God prepared him when we weren´t even in our sector! God really watches out for every single one of us and is constantlly preparing us for the day when we will talk with him face to face. My testimony of the work of God really grew in a LEAP and a bound this week that Even when things are worse than bad that God is in control and He can´t loose, its his work and his glory to bring to pass the eternal life of man!
In the name of My brother and savior Jesus Christ amen.
With all my love sister atkinson.
