SAIGEABAMBA, BOLIVIA
I was literally sprinting in a dress
Monday Mar 27 2017

This was one of the most beautiful weeks I've had.

I'll start with the funny parts...

So we found another scorpion but it was dead so we kinda just left it on the floor and as we were doing our studies, our house owners cat came in and totally ate the dead scorpion it was so funny. So my comp loves to do these "Happiness is..." and after that she said, in english, "Happiness is seeing a cat eat a dead scorpion." I died laughing!

Also, so here in this area, there is a garbage truck that drives around, and you know its outside when you can hear a song blasting. You hand the garbage truck workers you garbage bags, and they put them in... So we heard it as we were studying. We had to hurry and put together all the garbage in one big bag and we left and so as we were walking down it totally started to drive away and you bet, I ran after the truck hahha I probably ran a good block with this garbage bag in my hands yelling for the truck to stop. The music is still loudly playing and my comp stayed back laughing her head off, (I was literally sprinting in a dress) I almost got hit by a car.. but they stopped. but at least I got to do my extra exercise for the day!

So now more spiritual stuff... Last monday right after writing, as my comp and I and Hermana Jordan and her comp were all walking, we walked passed a main street where a little boy had been hit by a motorcycle and was lying on the ground and couldn't move his legs, many people were surrounding him. The first thing that came to my mind was, hey the priesthood, this kid needs a blessing. Then our comps kept walking (I was walking with H Jordan) Then we kept talking about how we could help him but we totally kept walking and then it hit me so hard, "You don't know what you could change for this family by just sharing the idea of helping" So we stopped our comps and turned around, it was a big group so the three of them stayed back as I went into the group and knelt down by the little boy and his older brother and in front of everyone introduced myself as a representative of Jesus Christ and how we believe that the Priesthood power of God has been restored and how with this special power men of the church can give blessings of health and asked if he would be okay if we visited them later. He said yes, and gave me his information. We called later and set an appointment but he ended up not being able to. But as far as I know, the little boy is better.

There was such a special confidence in offering this idea and everyone knew that I was a personal representative of Jesus Christ himself. I felt so much happiness. I don't know what will happen, but I'm so happy that I'm not regretting that I didn't offer, at least.

Another day, as we had a day of contacting and knocking in a neighborhood for many hours, we finally left to go to an appointment at 7, as we walked, I said a personal prayer letting God know that I was happy with all of these many contacts but that if we were to stop for anyone special that He knows he could trust in me and that I would. So just about 10 minutes later as we were walking up a hill I noticed a young woman walking down the street holding her baby, I immediately thought, "hey, the Plan of Salvation, and we could ask her where she thinks her baby was just a year ago." So you bet we stopped her, I suddenly felt a need of hers but didn't know exactly how to address her about it so that I could know what it was. But she told us we could visit her and after telling us where she lives, I asked for another street and then looked up at her as a big tear drop fell down her face and I felt the impression that something was going on with the father of her baby and a little more, and so I asked her if she would like to sit down and she said "Yes" and so we sat on the curb and let her cry it all out. She told us why she was upset. The spirit had helped me to know what had happened. She accepted a visit and we said a prayer with her and she left.

The Lord loves His children so much. He is aware of YOUR needs. He knows them. I testify of that.

I have more amazing stories from this week but very little time. I can't wait to share them all with you!

Love you all so much. But after this week I know that God loves you even more and that He is so in tune with every little thing you're passing.
Let Him in.
Come unto Him.
Let His love surround you, cause when it does..
It feels SO GOOD!!!
