pues, tengo una semana más hasta mi primer cambio en nicaragua! no creo. el tiempo es muy rápido en la misión.
cómo están ustedes? espero que estedes están SUUUPER TUANIS.
i have a quote of the week for y’all: “my love, you are my inspiration.”
haha, this guy whispered to this to me as i was walking down the street….i could not stop laughing.
hermana baten la preguntó a la mujer cuanto tiempo tiene…porque hermana batan pensó la mujer estaba emberasada (pregnant. don’t get that confused with embarrassed). ya, no. ella no está embarasada. jajajaja. i could not stop laughing that i almost peeed my pants!
tambien, ayer, me cayé…i fell over a bicycle that was parked behind me…yep, my skirt went over my head. but i was a tough girl and didn’t cry. i only hurt my rodilla…entonces, estoy bien.
a lot of people have been asking me if i use make up…well, everyone who knows me knows i love makeup, but here in NICA, i don’t use any bc i sweat so much which causes zits and my makeup to slide down my face. entonces, ive been really wondering if they are telling me this bc they want to know cause they think im pretty without it, or they are telling me that i need to wear it cause im ugly…the next day i wore some. lolz…but i think i will stick to wearing make up only at zone meetings or meetings con presidente collado.
so this week in personal study… realmente, quiero decir que me encanta leer las escrituras. a veces, extraño el CCM porque en el ccm, estudiaba por 14 horas en un dia. a veces siento como no tengo tiempo para estudiar. entonces, in personal study i read in genesis about Joseph of Egypt. goodness, i love this story. how great is Joseph? super tuanis, verdad? joseph was a man full of love and full of forgiveness! i have like two pages full of notes about the attributes of christ, joseph had. so, im sure we know all about joseph and his coat of many colors…if you don’t..read it!
i have come to realize that we need to nourish the small and simple things. we cannot forget about the things we were taught in primary or the things that we think are super obvious. becuase these are the foundations of our testimonies and our conversions. we build upon these truths, and if we forget about them then our faith decresases, and we have to build it up again. we dont want to do this! we want to keep building upon the faith we already have!
pues, the scripture that i just LOVED was in chapter 45 verse 5: dice, therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me beore you to preserve life.and verse 8: dice, so now it was not you that sent me hither, but GOd: and he hath made me a father to Pharoah, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. and verses 14 and 15: dice, and he fell upon his borhter benjamin’s neck and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck. Moreover, he kissed all his brethrem and wept upon them: and after that his brethrem talked with him.
TALK ABOUT SOMEONE WHO RECOGNIZED THAT THE LORD HAS A PURPOSE FOR EVERYTHING.
TALK ABOUT SOMEONE WHO WANTED TO MAKE GOD’S WILL HIS WILL.
so, i feel like i talk a lot about faith, but FE ES MUY IMPORTANTE!!!
i have learned there are three things in order for a person to draw down the power of faith.
-that god actually does exist
-a CORRECT idea of his character and attributes
-an actual knowledge that the course you are taking in life is according to his will.
how do you know it is His will?
well, by doing what the lord would have you do, you are able to believe in yourself, believe you are worthy to receive God’s help and guidance, and you have the power to pull down the blessings of faith in your life!
OBEDIENCE IS KEY!
holy moly, i have learned so much this past week and have recieved a lot of revelation for my life. i want you all to know that
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US DECIDES WHO WE WANT TO BECOME. YOU ARE YOUR GREATEST WORK!
REMEMBER YOU ARE ALWAYS CHANGING AND MOVING FORWARD.,..NOT BACKWARDS!
DO NOT GO WITH THE FLOW AND BE WHAT LIFE MAKES YOU!
THE LORD HAS A PURPOSE FOR EVERYTHING…EVEN YOU. SEEK TO FIND HIS WILL FOR YOUR LIFE.
les quiero mucho, mi familia y mis amigos.
p.s. chan, you would like it here! every guy takes off his muffler…or whatever it is, and their motos are suuuuper loud!!!!!!!! it hurts my ears…yeah, that loud. XOXO
