I can't believe that I am almost done with my time in the MTC. It's been a whole month already!
1 down, 17 to go. That went crazy fast, right?!
This week was a lot of fun! So here's the breakdown:
Last Sunday was fast Sunday, when we fast for 2 meals and pray for an answer to a question that we take to Heavenly Father. I got an awesome answer to my prayers through our Mission Conference in the morning, Sacrament meeting, and the rest of our meetings throughout the day. They talked a lot about the importance of families and how Heavenly Father has made them for a reason. Each person in the family has an important role to play in bringing everyone closer to Christ and Heavenly Father.
Tuesday, we had our second to last lesson with our favorite investigator, Hermana Meza. She is the most adorable little (she's like 4'5") lady I have ever met! She has such a strong testimony of the Gospel and Heavenly Father's hand in her life. Her husband is having medical problems right now, but she tells us that she prays and tries to remember how we taught her to look to Heavenly Father for peace. It is so incredible the impact we can have on the lives of these people that we teach! Heavenly Father has truly prepared them for us.
The middle of the week was a little bit rough for me, but through the trial I strengthened my testimony of Christ's love and sacrifice for me and for each of us.
On Thursday we had our last lesson with Hermana Meza and I definitely cried. In the afternoon we got to teach a member on Skype in Mexico! Her name is Aye and she is getting ready to go on a mission in January! We gave her our emails and hopefully we can keep in contact with her! She was really sweet and lifted us up with her testimony of the scriptures.
Now the most important information to share with you about yesterday. IT SNOWED. I was like a little kid! I have missed seeing snow fall so much. Texas will do that to you! Haha, but it was so beautiful. Now there is snow on some of the mountain tops and it makes me so happy!!! I'm so lucky to have a mission where I'll get to see LOTS of snow! Heavenly Father knows me so well :) We also got our travel plans yesterday! I leave at 5:05am on Tuesday the 17th! It's really happening! I'm going out into the world to preach the gospel!!! I'm so excited. This time in the MTC has been amazing and has prepared me so well to preach the gospel to those in Logan. And my Spanish is coming along really well! The gift of tongues is real y'all. I can't even explain how amazing it is to be able to speak to people in their native tongue AND TO UNDERSTAND THEM!
God is so good! This week instead of a scripture I would love it if you would all go watch the Mormon Message called "Bearing Our Burdens With Hope." Just go to mormon.org and type that in and you'll find it! It's wonderful and has helped me tremendously.
Just a reminder: My last P-day in the MTC is next Saturday! Then my P-day will be on Mondays!Also, I'm pretty sure this is the last week for me to be able to receive DearElders! I have LOVED getting them from you all along with all the snail mail and packages! So thank you! My Unit number which is 94 and my mission Utah Logan.
Love you and praying for you always!
p.s. if you are ever going crazy, go buy a Duncan Proyo yo-yo. It's worth it. Trust me.
