Another week in portland…

HCS4-14-14 3We have been teaching the siblings for a few weeks and they want to be baptized on April 27th. They have been coming to church and reading the Book of Mormon. They prayed about it and felt the spiritual confirmation that it is true. They are like my role models.  However, their dad hasn’t read or prayed and he doesn’t want them to join the church.  I love this family. Pray for them!!

In language study this week we have been just like straight translating and it is fun. Translating is one of my new favorite hobbies.   On Thursday we were fasting as a zone until dinner and we were so hungry and then people offered us cheesecake at like 3:00 so we just accepted it hahhaa well like when they have it on the plate and everything is ready it’s hard to say no. But then we fasted on Sunday so everything worked out.

On Saturday we had a stake breakfast with all the missionaries, lunch at an investigators and dinner with members. So much food. And people gave us some home made tortillas

Another good time this week was when we went to an apartment complex to knock some doors and there were kids playing outside so we asked if they knew where people spoke Spanish. All the doors they told us didn’t speak Spanish, but then they just kept choosing doors for us to knock. It was really interesting.

We got to go to the temple on Saturday!!!!!! With some members and investigators and it was the coolest. It is so pretty and just feels so good. Everyone that came seemed to enjoy it also.HCS4-14-14 4

And on Tuesday I went on exchanges back to Vancouver, it was way weird to be back. I felt super out of it though and I just love Portland. But it was fun to see some members and teach with hna Ramos who goes home at the end of this transfer. Speaking of going home, 9 more months ahhhhh

It’s been sunny and my testimony of the Book of Mormon and Joseph smith as a prophet of god is being strengthened. I love that there is a prophet on earth today and he knows how we can be happy and successful and he tells us!! I am grateful for all the things I learned in general conference and have a lot of work to do to improve.

One thing that we talked about a lot at zone meeting this week was being a disciple of Christ which basically means to just love everyone. Which is hard sometimes when people don’t listen and think they have enough in their life. But really the church of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth. I know that’s true. I know that god loves me and you and I know that Jesus Christ atoned for us so we can change and be better disciples of Christ. I love you and am way too grateful for you. Read the Book of Mormon. It’s powerful.
