This week flew by! I am genuinely thankful for the trials that have been placed in my mission, because each one has strengthen me and my testimony. I would be lying to all of you if I told you this traveling assistant gig was easy. It has tested me in so many ways. but I have learned that there is no substitute for hard work and it is hard to beat a person that never gives up. I try to be that person everyday!
To start off the week we went south to Guaymas. A change in plans guided us to be in 2 days splits with Zone Leaders, Elder Rasmussen (Minnesota) and Elder Peterson (Idaho). We had our share of success and rejection, trials of patience and lots of laughs. I was with Rasmussen almost the whole time and we had some good bonding time. He and I had our adventures in neighboring town Empalme. There we did a sick baptismal interview and ate sushi that made me sick haha all we finished up strong!
The second half of the week we came back to Hermosillo and I accompanied ZLs Elder Huber (Mesa) and Elder Gutierrez (Vera Cruz) for the weekend. Tough Area. But I was able to teach them positivity and working with members can bring forth fruits. These Elders had one of the smallest houses I have stayed in yet haha I love Mexico and all its perks. I wouldn't trade anything for the experiences I am having here. Strangely, I was privileged to teach so many mothers this week. Single moms, old mom, young moms, worried moms, soccer moms, and Mormon moms. The Gospel has so many parenting applications and together my companions and I we were able to help each one of them find peace in understanding Gospel principles. This week I sure appreciated my Mom and the obedience and courage she always had while I was growing up.
Tonight President and his wife invited Elder Christensen and I to dinner and we are going to have a Family Home Evening together!! I'm stoked! We are spoiled by them :) The other day the Hermana Told me we were their prized lambs hahah I keep my chin up and count my blessings. I love my beautiful family and am grateful for this church. Our faith in Christ and our diligence in keeping the commandments had brought us so much happiness! YES!
