And I held a chicken!
Monday Mar 20 2017

This week has been a really beautiful week. I love learning and studying about Christ. He just makes me so happy.

So this week I got to go to a different area in a place called Villa Moderna with a sister named hermana Camacho, she's from Ecuador and so sweet, we ate chuño and I actually really liked it hahah and then I got to dress like a cholita (I love them) and I held a chicken. WOO

We have met some really great people this week. We also found that family that Hermana Jordan and I ran after. They were so excited that we came and let us in right then. We didn't have too much time but my comp and I got to know them a bit more and got to share with them about the love that God has for each of them. They all have been reading the pamphlet that we gave them and they really are a cute family so lets see what happens this week! We plan on meeting with them again.

We also got to meet a father that lives in the same house lot thing and we gave him our card. His name is Mario, and just yesterday he called us to see if we could come visit him and his daughter and we taught them the beginning of the Restoration but turns out that he is actually really broken inside because of his divorce and how it all happened. I immediately felt so much love for him and for his sweet daughter. We shared our testimonies about the Book of Mormon and the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

I'm really so thankful for my understanding of the Atonement. Though it may not be a perfect understanding, I have a lot of faith in it. I know that through it and only through it I can actually feel the change that God has waiting for me.

A scripture that I have been really loving this week is in Mosiah 3 verses 7-9 and 19.

The suffering of Christ is literally for each and every single one of us even us who are completely subject to following the natural man, who is an enemy to God.

Everything about the Gospel of Jesus Christ really makes me so happy. I'm so thankful and I invite all of you to study His Gospel and His Atonement. After all, it applies to each of us!

There is not one heart in the world that doesn't have the ability to be healed by the Atonement of Christ.

I love you all!
