When I'm passed out, my companion has her own companion study!! :)
laughing at me too. :) We're probably going to be heading into Conce in the next few days to see a specialist and or an MRI. We're still waiting to hear back from the nurse. I've been staying with the Familia Bueno in the afternoons and we've been doing splits so that my companion can go out and keep working! Our branch has stepped up so much to help out Hermana Miskin!
So our investigators.... Fernando is struggling, but his mom (Yolanda) came to church and she's still going strong for the 25th of this month! Also, Vilma, our other investigator is going on DAY 2 WITHOUT SMOKING! YAYA!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep her in your prayers. It's something that's so hard for her, and we're calling her literally every 30-60 minutes to giver her animos (encouragement) and help her not to do it! She's being so strong, and her fecha is for this Saturday the 18th!
Also, happy birthday this week to Spencer! I hope you have a fabulous birthday tomorrow! Love ya kid!
I love sunflowers!!We're reading the Book of Mormon right now as a branch before the next general conference. This week I was reading in 2nd Nephi 3, all about the prophecies of Joseph Smith and the book of Mormon. I LOVED verse 12 and the wording that was given there. It says, "Wherefore, the fruit of thy loins shall awrite; (BOOK OF MORMON) and the fruit of the loins of bJudah shall cwrite (BIBLE); and that which shall be written by the fruit of thy loins, and also that which shall be written by the fruit of the loins of Judah, shall grow together, unto the dconfounding of efalse doctrines and laying down of contentions, and establishing fpeace among the fruit of thy loins, and gbringing them to the hknowledge of their fathers in the latter days, and also to the knowledge of my covenants, saith the Lord." Together, the Book of Mormon and the Bible are working to bring about the salvation of men, by confounding false doctrines! I loved this verse, and personally want to extend this invitation to all of you. To start and finish the Book of Mormon before the April general conference. The Lord has said, "Seek not to adeclare my word, but first seek to bobtain my cword, and then shall your tongue be loosed; then, if you desire, you shall have my dSpirit and my word, yea, the power of God unto the econvincing of men." I made a goal and will do it for the rest of my life! I want to start and finish the Book of Mormon between each of the conferences, so I would be reading it 2 times each year. It will still give me time to study things more in depth, but also I'll be pushed to read often! I know that the Lord blesses us when we take the time to study the scriptures! DAILY Personal Study is so crucial to our salvation!
I'm sorry that this week's email was so boring, I'm a boring person! I'll try to live a more exciting week this next week so you don't fall asleep reading my emails :) I love you all so much! Thank you for your prayers, your support, and all of the juicy stuff in between!
