When people literally come to you....

2 Nephi 10:21 But great are the promises of the Lord unto them who are upon the isles of the sea; 

There is always lots to share, lots to say, and lots to talk about... But first I just wanted to say that we had a great week. Wahoo! Hello hello!  

I love being a trainer, I love serving here in Los Cristianos and I love being a missionary. This week I hit my 7 month mark in the mission and I did a little reflecting and thinking of what I have learned these past 7 months and what a mission means to me. I am a little young in the mission to be training, but I feel so blessed and humbled to have this experience. 

(Dad also said something about me calling him and telling him that I was going to serve... On October 21, 1 year ago, my papers were submitted! Oh how time flies!!!) 

There's a quote that goes "Everything happens for a reason"... And I have to agree 100% with that saying, especially here in the mission. When people fail, when we miss a guagua, when people don't show up, when we get rejected or shut down, everything that may be "bad" always turns out for the better and seems to be a miracle. 

Wednesday was one of those days. Tuesday I was a little stressed because we had people to meet with in like 3 very different parts of our area and it was festival, so the guagua didn't come as often... Many things happened that were not in our plans... But we ended up meeting with one of our English class friends and her son. I met her my first day here in Los Cristianos at English class and we FINALLY met with her in her house this past week. When we first got there we were helping her with some of her English homework and after we got talking about the Book of Mormon and how it could really help her learn English. Since she comes to English class, we have a family home evening with the ward right after so she always stays and she told us about how she loves the spirit and the way she feels when she is here at the church. 

When we were with her, We ended up reading a little of the intro of the Book of Mormon with her and in Moroni 10. We read it in Spanish and in English and then there was a knock at her door... It was one of her friends. Long story short, we re-did everything we just did with her and her friend again, and it was amazing! Before we left, I asked if we could say a kneeing prayer. There was 6 of us, my companion and I, the 2 moms and their 2 boys.. I explained how we pray and what was going to happen, and I told them that I could say it. The spirit was so strong and when we got up, her friends said "wow, that was beautiful. I have never felt this way before." Miracles!! 

We are going to meet with fabia this next week again and teach her more about the restoration, I'm so excited!! (And her friend has met with missionaries before and we're going to get her a Romanian BOM. We hope to meet with her soon too!) 

Friday was another miracles day (but isn't every day a miracle?) We were headed to eat lunch with some members in Adeje, and I got a phone call from a lady. She started telling me that her parents were baptized about 3 years ago in our church and that her mom kept telling her to go to our church. She had looked and looked for our church here and she finally found our number. She called and asked when we had meetings and I told her that they were on Sunday at 10, but we had English class and a family home evening that night. I invited her and she said that she'd see us there! She ended up coming and when we walked in, we found her sitting there reading the Book of Mormon. She loved English class and the family home evening and after I got talking to her about her story and her parents. Her parents got baptized 3 years ago in Brazil and they love the church. Her sister just got baptized this past Sunday and she kept telling us that they're just all so happy and her mom wants her to have this happiness too. She came to church on Sunday and she loved it! We are going to visit her on Tuesday and i am so excited to teach her and help her! She seriously was just handed to us and is a miracle. 

I know that when we are obedient we receive blessings, but when we are exactly obedient, then comes the miracles! 

This past week we also had a zone training- we talked a lot about getting to every part of our areas and how we need to "flood" our areas. Our area is GIANT and is the whole south of this island. We had a district meeting last night and really prayed and studied where we should go, when we should go, and how we can flood our area, this island with the gospel. It's going to take a lot of work, traveling, figuring out, but we are really excited and ready! I know that there are people out there who are really READY to receive us and here this message. 

I just wanted to end with my testimony that I know that this church is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that Joseph smith is a prophet of God and he restored this gospel of Jesus Christ here on the earth today. We are so blessed!! We are living in the last days and preparing for His coming. I know Christ is our Savior. I know that we have a living prophet here on earth, Thomas Monson who leads and guides us. I know that through the gospel of Jesus Christ and through the plan of salvation, we can live with our families forever! 

I love you all and I hope all is well! 

Much love, from a happy Hermana
