semana #34

Just kidding, I'm not sure which week it is, but I couldn't come up with a title... haha if y'all would like to send me title ideas, that would be really cool. Maybe I'll use them. 

This week was a little crazy. It had many ups and downs. Something cool is that my companion wants to teach me how to wash all my clothes by hand every week, and today we started. I only took an hour and 12 minutes and I hope to beat my time. 

We had zone conference this week. It was beautiful, but kind of sad, because it was the last zone conference that President and Sister Hall are ever going to do their whole mission here. They talked with us a lot about charity, and President went more in depth with us on Luke chapter 15. Something interesting, that I loved that he said was that the parable of the 10 drakmas, he believes represents the less-actives or inactives that there are in our wards. Because they are already inside the house (the church) and that the Lord knows the value of every one of these people and wants us to seek them until we find them, and they come back to Him. With that, I invite you all to read Luke 15, and then apply that teaching by looking for the lost drakmas in your ward or family. Invite them. Visit them. Help them to know of God's love for them, and how He misses them. Not just through your actions, but TELL THEM. I testify it's true. I believe every single less-active that I have visited thus far in my mission has needed to hear that message of the love that God has for them, and of how He is looking for them, because He knows their worth. 

I sure love you all. We lost contact of Monica for a few weeks, and we were super worried, but yesterday we found her!!! Turns out she was on vacation and her husband was sick, but she's been reading her Book of Mormon and taking notes and everything! Thank you for your prayers! Have a great week!
