Wk 23 - God is always watching out for those missionaries!

Companion: Elder Ramos
Area: Andalein

one of my zone leaders elder miranda
tannner mancill he is our stake and jenna's friend
he is in the mission concepcion south and I saw him in the office-
(we share offices with the South mission)

so i will write hand written letters to all of you this week and answer all of your letters!

i am so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary! i want you guys to know that i love you all so much and i pray for all of you every day multiple times a day!! this past week my testimony has been strengthened about how God is always watching out for those missionarys! all i want you to know mom is i am ok and i am very happy.

i would like a new little hymn book in Spanish if you could do that:) just know i am so grateful for your prayers and i do love this gospel so much!

this week i was with my companion and we were teaching a lesson and he said a word in portuguese and it was pretty funny! i guess those misionarys who know portuguese and spanish it is hard for them at times to speak one language or the other because some of the words are the same! i like having this comp because he is teaching me some words in portuguese as well! 

my companion and i are having a hard time finding people and yeah right now it is a difficult time. we walk a lot. we do contacting we have lessons with recent converts and less actives and we knock doors and referrals we use a little bit. when we get them we use them. the truth is we always find less actives and they don't want anything but i feel like the times that it is hard to find people you grow the most. i think that is true because you learn to depend on the gospel for your happiness and god.

i love how much i have learned about the scriptures. there is one scripture in Alma 13:24 that talks about how angels are here on the earth preparing the hearts of men to receive the gospel and that scripture brought me so much happiness.

i hope you all have a wonderful week and it brings me so much joy to see how happy my family is! love you all!!
