Week 64 - Ice cream, Cockroaches, & Life!

It's Great . . . except for the bad parts.  What kinds of
movies and music are you feeding your mind?

Esta semana...wait this week has been so, so, so amazing!! We had a noche misional (missionary night) on Wednesday and we talked about the Word of Wisdom with a little object lesson we had shared while teaching, and how their family was happier when they took care of their bodies! We as missionaries talked after about what it was and I explained it with aguaje (eww) icecream and a cucaracha (cockroach)...both of which are in abundance here! We talked about how  when we let a little of the bad in our lives, everything is contaminated! This is the same for our spirits, not just our bodies.  We have to be careful what we put into our bodies, minds and our spirits. Thanks for the FHE lesson mom years back, but instead of cucaracha, you put chicken poop...never going to forget!

"Good Things To Come"
Also we had a BAPTISM!!!! For a young woman who is so ready!!!! She already seemed like a member before she was baptized, which I guess is how it should be. But I am so grateful for baptism and that we have the ability to become completely clean through our Savior Jesus Christ. I was thinking about the scritpure D&C 6:33-37 and how if we don't doubt and we follow Him, that we can be clean!

We also saw a complete miracle happen with a woman that a week ago said she was Catholic and would always be Catholic...and never would come to church! Well guess what??? She accepted to pray to be baptized and came to church this Sunday!!! Hearts can change if we are willing to do what God has asked!

I love this gospel. Life is hard...period. I know that more and more every day. Hard doesn't even sum it up. But I KNOW that life can be beautiful through the hard, and that the hard is to help us grow. 

Keep smiling and keep progressing!
