This week is crazy becuase of Halloween and my fingers on type so fast...we have to be in our apartments early today. So I chose to take the time today to write my family! I hope you all understand, I am happy and alive and well!
This week was probably the most successful week of my entire mission (as far as numbers go). And it felt wonderful to give it our all. I honestly don't pretend to understand how the Lord sees fit to bless us! But we have been undergoing some pretty serious self evaluations recently.
(I am doing this thing called the 40-day fast (not of food and water) but of habit and actions that I feel impressed to get rid of in order to have a more unlimited relationship with the Holy Ghost) It is really fun you should all try it! I am pretty sure there it comes from a letter than a mission president once wrote to his mission...I will see if I can find it.
This week one of the many miracles happened with a man named Rigo. Rigo was really willing to meet with us, but everytime that we set up an appointment, his had too many things to do around his house to be able to recieve us. So we offered to serve him! He accepted. We went over on Wednesday and cut his lawn and afterwards his wife man us tacos and invited us in to eat. We met his whole family and Rigo kept apologizing to us about not having been able to meet earlier and saying how impressed they were by our service. It was incredible. I miss mowing the lawn! I love tacos! And most importantly I love being able to share the message of the Gospel with God children. We have a return appointment and they are making us "Mole" It is really interesting...mexican dish...I actually really enjoy it but when I first came to the mission, not so much. Look it up, it is interesting.
That is all the time I have, sorry folks! I love you all and pray for the best for all of you!
