Letter-July 10th, 2016

This week was great. Our new mission president and his wife arrived this week. President and Sister Cruz. I really loved meeting them. It has also been raining lots the last few weeks. Apparently this rainy season they are expecting "la Nina" it just means there will be more rain. It is because of El NiƱo last hot season(aka extra heat) So what happened this week?

Mon: MLC- I got to meet and be interviewed by President Cruz. He is so awesome. I know he is just what the mission needs. He has a wonderful vision for the mission and I know that he is truly called of God. His wife grew up in this mission as well. So she knows how to speak the language here. So her and I had a fun time getting to know each other. 

Tues: MLC.2 WOW!! This mission is going to have lots of changes coming its way but all for the best. I am so excited to see the progress of myself and the other missionaries as well. 

Wed: Back to work and back to finding new investigators. We found this lady named Alma and this day we were able to share lesson 1 with her. She was really excited to read from the Book of Mormon. 

Thus: Normal crazy work day, no lessons but we did have schedule some return appointments. 

Fri: We attended the Meet the President Devotional. And also visited our ward mission leader who is in the hospital. He is preparing for his mission and had to get a operation done. So we got to visit him. It was his first ever sugary so I was able to give some advice to him haha. 

Sat: I spent part of this day on splits with 2 members. The Relief Society president and anther Sister in the ward. We were able to visit some less active members and do some visiting teaching. I love the ward here because there are lots of people eager to do missionary work and find ways to help the work move forward. I really had fun working and teaching this week mostly because of the help from the members. We were able to see just how much they help. We taught one other lesson this week to Alma. She is really concerned because she has had a daughter pass away. It just made the lesson that much more spiritual because of the testimony the member bore to her. 

Sun: It was Ward conference here in the Lapaz ward and we got to sing with the choir, and I accompanied them on the piano. 

Well I think that was about it for this week. This morning we got a text from President Cruz with a great quote I would like to share with you all. 

"If we exercise our faith and look to God for help, we will not be overwhelmed with the burdens of life. We will not feel incapable of doing what we are called to do or need to do. We will be strengthened, and our lives will be filled with peace and joy. We will come to realize that most of what we worry about is not of eternal significance, and if it is, the Lord will help us, But we must have faith to look up and the courage to follow His direction."- Elder Carl B. Cook (Oct conf.2011)

Have a great week! Love you all :)
