October 19, 2009
I cant belive how fasts this week went by. As I was thinking about what I wanted to share with you and just what had happened this week i couldnt help but think that it feel like it should still be the first of October. Anywho It has changed from being nice fall weather to being freezing cold. The wind has blown pretty constantly for the last week. Soeur Royer and I decided that there is really no use in doing our hair because the minute we walk out the door it blows away. We are finding more and more that the wind and skirts dont get along very well....Aside for that it was a great week. There is a sister that we have been visiting a lot lately named Sr. Garcia. She is someone that has gives all she ahs for others. She is divorced but still stays strong, She has a son that lives not to far and she would do anything for him and his family. SHe has been like that all her life. But now she is in the last year of work and so stressed. so stressed that she is sick. The sad thing is that she is in a position that she needs someone to give back to her. So we go and visit when we can. We have talked about how sometimes Heavenly Father pushes us to the point that we really cant take any more yet we know that we cant giv up an just have to keep going even if it is only one day at a time. She is so strong. That is exactly it we have to stay stong even when we think that we will break. I have learned something really cool this week form One of our new amis Mattius. He loves to talk and it get hard to teach him. but the other nigth we were getting ready to go and he asked us what he could do because he has some problems with his neighbors and he doesnt know what to do. As he explained the problem we didnt know what to tell him he could do but the idea came to have him read int he Book of Mormon and pray. We invited him to read Enos that night and to start with a Prayer and ask God his question. He agreed but asked if we would read at the same time as he did. We agreed knowing that he was going to receive and answer. We called him the next day and he expalined that as he read he had a voice tell him what he should do. Later in the week he asked for another chapter that he could find an answer in. The same thing happend he received his answer as he read. For me I am realizing that it is the same for us that everytime we open the scriptures we can receive an answer. Like the promise in Moroni "if you will ask with a sincere heart" you can receive an answer. He doesnt say that it will only work one time but everytime we open and read we can find answers to all or our worries and questions. Sometimes it is jus peace that we find. I love the Book of Mormon I know that it is the word fo God. Its incredible to have the time each morning to study it fora few minutes.
