Awe Brookie!! I am so excited for you!! I cannot believe there will only be two kids in the house!! Crazy stuff!! Okay I also cannot believe I have been on my mission for 6 months! Crazy!!!
This week was a little interesting. We went to the hospital for the appointment with Sister Ventura and Sister Fluckiger was with us. She is so awesome! We had as much fun as you can have in a hospital. Haha I also wasn't feeling so great again, but I am feeling good now. I convinced Sister Ventura that we have to be running (with the help of Sister Fluckiger :) ) because I hardly ever got sick during Cross-country. We went for a run this morning. :)
So a pretty crazy miracle happened this week. We had been having the feeling to visit this one recent convert and she has been pretty sick (she has cancer). Well, anyways,we couldn't visit her because she was feeling pretty bad but we talked to her on the phone and sent her text messages. Wellshe came to church with her niece, Joana, who is 23 and has a little boy who is 3. Well, she came up to us and said she wants to be baptized! She is getting baptized ! It was seriosuly such a miracle! Joana is so awesome. She said how she went to church one week in the past with her aunt Stella and she felt tranquil and then we testified to her that this feeling is the Holy Ghost and she will feel this same feeling when she reads and pray about the Book of Mormon and if Joseph Smith was a Prophet! It was so cool!
Jacinto, Manuel and Carmen are all doing great!! Jacinto comes to church really early and is always in a white shirt and tie! He is so awesome and he says he cannot wait to serve a mission. I just love seeing the change in families when they apply the prinicples of the gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives. We are so blessed to be members of this gospel!!
During studies today I felt so much love from my Savior and Heavenly Father. I am so grateful!! I know they live and not only are they aware of us and our circumstances but they are longing for us to choose the right and come unto them!!
I love you all so much!! We are so blessed!!! LOVE YOU!!
