First, I pray that you guys had a great week and that it was filled with great things. Always remember you are all children of a Father in Heaven and you all have such an important purpose here in this world!
First off, this week we had interviews which are always awesome. It so great talking face to face with President and hearing the advice he has. Also, I got packages this week and that has a fun story to go with it. So first off, they forgot to bring the packages to our interviews like they usually do. So, Sister McArthur (president’s wife) asked me if Elder Fuentes and I could travel to pick them up the next day where they were having interviews.
So, the next day we got up and headed by the metro train to go get them. Everything went smooth until we were on our way back waiting for the train. We had to take a suitcase because we picked up the packages for the Zone and there where about 10 packages and just the 2 of us.
So, while we were waiting for the train to come I guess 2 missionaries with a suitcase looked suspicious because 2 police officers ended up coming up to us and asking what we had in the boxes and the suit case. It was an interesting 5 mins but it all ended up fine and they were really nice at the end after they figured out we were just missionaries and that the boxes where from our families. We got all the boxes home safe and to their owners also, so everyone was happy!
So, another awesome thing that happened this week was that Lizbeth got the gift of the Holy Ghost! It was such a special experience to see how happy she was when she received her blessing and the spirit was so strong. We also got to meet her family this week and they are awesome just like her! They accepted a pamphlet of one of the lessons we teach and then her little sisters that are 11 and 12 went to church with her this last Sunday!
We are looking forward to the opportunity to visiting with them this week and we are so happy that Lizbeth is starting to see the Savior work with her family because that was always something she wanted was for her family to accept the gospel. We shared with her that by her example they were going to have a change of heart and now we can all see it happening it is truly amazing!
Well lastly, I also hit my 1 year mark this last week! So, this past year has been the greatest of my life and I have changed in so many ways. I am truly thankful for the opportunity I have had this last year to be able to learn everything I have. I know though that this up and coming year will be the same. I will have the opportunity to grow and learn so much and I know it will change my life also.
I know our Father in Heaven loves each and every one of us! I know with all my heart we all have a very big purpose here and that if we ask our Father in Heaven he will help us find the pathway we need to be on.
I invite all of you this week to pray. Pray for answers but make sure you pray with all your heart and then do your part! God loves you all I know he does I can feel his love for you all.
I love you all also and I hope you guys have an amazing, special week!
with love Elder Davis
