The weather here is crazy. We were out walking yesterday and I was sweating, while just a week ago there was frost on our car. It’s as bad as Utah here people, I’m telling you.
I am really excited for General Conference. I think we will wathch in Espanol, that will be exciting. I can see how much I really understand and know. I translated a talk for the first time in Sacrament. It was really hard!! I had to work my brain so fast to think in spanish, then in english, then in talk in english. Haha sometimes I said spanish words. Oh well. My bike is good. Ilove it. We don’t use it as much as I would like. It’s hard when you have appt. back to back.
That means “a bed under a car”. What a crazy story that was! We got a call on Wednesday from a less active member and her sister. They needed help moving so we called the Elders and went to the rescue! It was pretty wet and rainy outside but we were just hauling everything out of the apartment very hectic-scetic and throwing in the truck and minivan. My comp and I had to leave and as we turned onto the main road we such a bunch of police cars around a car. As we got closer we saw a huge mattress jammed up underneath a car! We realized it was one of the mattresses that we had helped move out! Oh the things that happen.
Oh, this week was awesome!! There is always so much that happens, both good and not so good. First I’ll start out that transfers this week and…..we are both staying!!! I am so happy that I can finish up training hermana Portilla and myself and then I will be done with training for a while. I am so happy we get to stay here in the Branch. There is a lot of work to do but it’s progressing little by little. Yesterday they called a Branch Mission Leader, finally!! Hermano Renteria is possibly one of the funniest people I know so it is going to be great to work with him and help him in this new calling.
“For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” Galations 6:7-9
Don’t be weary, don’t faint, we can do this and we can do all things that the Lord requires of us if we just obey and follow him. I know the scriptures give us real guidance if we study them diligently. Pick a topic and find a way to apply it in your life this week. Les amo mucho!!! Cuidense
