8/7/17--Working hard or hardly working

Well to be honest I am going to become slacker Miss slacker these next couple of weeks on my weekly emails so I apologize now if they aren't terribly exciting or interesting or super uper short or if they are only pictures. 😁 Anyways this week was pretty awesome! We had a hard working week and we are working on consistence now.....

So last week we had district meeting and we talked about how we could be better at talking to everyone and I came up with the idea that every time we used our metro card we pull out a card to pass along to someone. Well let me tell you it worked great Wednesday and Thursday when we did it!! Wednesday we worked our tails off all day long and found SEVEN new people who want to learn more! What the heck! We went to Kansas and back though just going all over town looking people up
or talking on the bus or train. Doing service. I am telling you when we got home Wednesday night we were beyond exhausted! We were wiped out! Good thing we are still living!

Thursday we had another hard working day just talking to everyone everywhere. We worked super hard! Then guilt trip of all guilt trips. We went to go pick up food from a member who us sisters call mama because she buys us food and feeds us all the time and more. So we go ver and we are super excited! Then she looks at us with a straight face and goes "mis hijas se olvidaron acerca del cumpleaños de su mama ayer" or English she said "my daughter forgot about their mothers birthday yesterday." Boy I sure have never felt so bad in a long time. We forgot her birthday! We felt down right terrible! Uhhh! No worry we made it up to her and heart attacked her and it made her super happy! Phew saved by the power of paper hearts! We had as well heart attacked another member who her friend had died this past week and both her and this member told us that they put the hearts in their bedroom! So cute! I feel loved!

Then the other funny moment was Saturday night. So we had bought me some makeup that way I look nice when I go to the temple and home. So when we got home we practiced so that we could do it the next day at church. We had music playing and just having fun! Hermana Jofre started straightening her hair for church. I went to go pause the music on my iPad and saw that he sister training leaders were calling. So we picked up the phone and we were like hi how are you? The first thing they said was are you alive? It turns out that our district leader was worried because we hadn't given our daily number reports and thought that something was up. So we texted them and the Zone leaders to let everyone know that we were ok!

This week we did a study on the atonement and how we can draw the power of Jesus Christ into our lives. And a line from a talk stood out to me. It is from the talk "Drawing the power of Jesus Christ in Our Lives" by Elder Nelson in the April 2017 general Conference and he says; "The more we know about the Savior’s ministry and mission--the more we understand His doctrine and what He did for us--the more we know that He can provide the power that we need for our lives."

I have come to see on my mission the more we learn about who Christ is and what he did for other people we can come to see what he can do for us personally and we learn how to become more like him. I know this is Christ's church here on this earth! I know the Savior loves all of us!  I hope y'all have a great week! I love y'all!
