One for the Books!

A week full of events, Azua is HEATING up & I'm not just talking about the weather =D

MONDAY. great ACTIVE p-day! Then we get out to work and not a soul could be found but the Lord guided us to 

TUESDAY. We had exchanges (that´s when you split up and go with another missionary for a day)...PURPOSE to learn and improve. Hermana Duron is our Hermana Leader and she´s amazing and she´s from HONDURAS so she´s automatically awesome haha. Hermana Tejeda, her companion is also amazing and DOMINICAN! I LOVE HER! She is the funniest person I have ever met. I learned so much from her, I got to do exchanges with her. We had a good time inviting people to be baptized and we got Raul to PRAY in front of us after 2 months of trying to get him to pray!! YAY MIRACLES HAPPEN!!

WEDNESDAY. we had ZONE CONFERENCE...our PRESIDENT and wife are finishing their mission and because of traveling issues they are leaving a month early =( it was quite the emotional scene yet a WONDERFUL spirit was felt. I know that our leaders are called of God. I know it! There's no doubt about it... Hermana Francis and Hermana Jorgensen sang a beautiful version of "How Great Thou Art" and through the great spirit in the room, I felt so deeply the LOVE of my Heavenly Father. He knows us so personally. I testify of this constantly because I know He does. I know it almost perfectly. I live it!

Counsel to the Lord because He really is the only one that really understands PERFECTLY who we are and what we need and who we can become...He also LOVES US PERFECTLY..MORONI 7:45;47,48

THURSDAY - SATURDAY. We focused on committing people to come to church and TAKING NO for an answer! This is the salvation of our brothers and sisters we are talking about. Like Jeffery R. Holland says in Preach My Gospel! He´s amazing...TOTALLY INSPIRED OUR WEEK!

SUNDAY. we had almost everyone we wanted at church and more!! We had 9 at church!!! Miracles are happening...AZUA is HEATING UP Y´ALL!!

I know this CHURCH IS TRUE! I have no doubt about it and I know that this is Christ church and that Jesus Christ himself directs it! I know that God knows us personally. I love you all!

Love

Semana Santa

Querida familia y amigos,

Espero que esta semana les fue de lo mejor...record√°ndose de Cristo y de que √Čl vive!!

Easter Week...here it´s called Semana Santa and there are different traditions which is cool but it didn´t really feel like Easter really...it´s an all week thing when people go to the beach all week and all the little girls have braids and beads in their hair and lots of habichuela con dulce (beans with sweet...hahah beans, sugar, milk and sweet potato and raisins)...k sounds weird but it´s like my FAVORITE..SOOOO GOOD!

Has everyone seen the Easter Video...holy cow so great!! If you haven't watch it! (http://easter.mormon.org/?cid=HPTU041514694)

As for the rest of my week:
We met the cutest 9 year old. Her name is Yileini and she is so interested in religion...it's inspirational. She asked us to meet up later in the week and she was going to round up all the kids of the neighborhood to listen...SHE DID JUST THAT..for the first time since I've been in Azua we've had 10 kids in primary...that's right the work is hastening on!

Oscar and Valencia are getting married this week...which means they are going to get wet in no time with Carlitos!!! GOLDEN FAMILY =D

We met this old lady named Laura. She's had 12 kids and she's 80 and still walks like a champ as if she were 50! She's amazing and she spirit is really so peaceful...as we taught her, she had great questions but she believed that she was to old to get baptized. Hermana Flores and I looked at each other and with our looks we thought the same thing..."IT'S NEVER TOO LATE..."

I know this church is TRUE! It is true in all the WORLD and it is the only way to happiness! I know it with all my heart! I know that we have the authority restored today as it was when Jesus Christ came to the earth. I know that we can make sacred ordinances on earth that will take us back to our Heavenly Father as long as we keep his commandments, remember Him always and take His name upon us. This is the Church of Jesus Christ.

Love
