its amazing this work... so often we have no idea what we are doing and it all just works out!!! its such a testimony that the lord is in our lives.. the lord knows us and as missionaries we are doing his work!!! Things just work out and all we have to do is have faith!!! have faith that the lord is going to help us... and HE WILL!!!!!
We have had soo many amazing experiences this week... one of particular is one taht i will never forget...
we walking to an appointment and had a few extra minutes sooo we decided to contact! we were in an area that we never really had been much... and there was a man sitting out side of his house in a wheel chair! as we walked up to him i handed him a pass along card with a picutre of christ on it!!! but as we began talking to him a women walked out and told us that he cant speak... that he can understand but he isnt able to speak! she then went back in her house for me i didnt notice it because i dont ever understand anyone hahaha sooo his mumbling made up language didnt sound any different than spanish... but as he spoke i understood exactly what he was saying!!! it was the spirit!!! it was amazing!!!!!!! even though he wasnt speaking english... or spanish... or any language... the spirit was helping us to communicate!!! even though all we kept saying that we love him and that christ loves him... i know that he knows that christ knows his heart! it was an experience that testified to me taht we all have disablilities and we all have weaknesses but christ knows! christ knows how we feel and how to succor us!!! he is the only person taht understands us perfectly and exactly! i know that these past 6 weeks i wouldnt have been able to do this without the help and succoring of my savior!!! HE LIVES. i know this with all my heart. I am so grateful for his sacrafice so i dont have to go through this life alone. HE KNOWS!!!!!!!! TRUST IN HIM!!!! alll we have to do is have faith.. i love 3 nephi 9 that is all we have to do we only have to have faith believing on him and we will receive the salvation... we will recieve the happiness the help!!!!
this gospel is soo true... it is the only thing that is true on this earth and the only way back!!!
I know that and that is why i am here. I love you guys and hope you have a good week
