This week has been so crazy…we not only have flying roaches but now lizards! ( My companion is deathly afraid of lizards) We had a lot going on and some creepy stuff has happened but im safe. Heavenly Father always keeps me safe.
We picked up 4 new investigators this week. We went to go visit a girl in our ward Dani that just had surgery on her gall bladder. When we got there her boyfriend (who we are teaching) and her friend Lupe were talking about Go dand religion, Perfect Setting! So we talked to them a little bit and shared about the Plan of Salvation. Lupe wants us to come back!
We hadn’t been able to see Ana and Carina since we last taught them and gave them a baptismal date because they were never home. But we saw them yesterday and Anas husband Jose was there her 8 year old daughter Katherine. We extended them baptismal dates too! So ow we have their whole family.
Let me just tell you guys Heavenly Father hears our prayers! We have like barely any food for the next 2 weeks and members never feed us. SO this week we have prayed really hard each day that somehow we will be fed. On Tuesday when we prayed to be fed literally like 2 seconds later Hermana Alecio (a lady in our ward) us and said Hey we have some leftovers from dinner if you guys want to come by and get some. This whole week we have somehow been fed! He does hear our prayers and look after us!
So now to the creepy part of my week. To make a long story short me and my companion had a stalker who was following us everywhere in his truck. He got really close to getting us but I kept a prayer in my heart. We called our district leader and he came and met us right away and we talked about the whole situation and had to call the mission office. They had us stay with some Hermanas in a different area for like 3 or 4 days just to get the stalker off our back and so that he didn’t follow us home and know where we live. But now we are safe and we are back in our own apartment. I know Heavenly Father was protecting us.
Ive noticed a lot of people comparing themselves to others and worrying about what people think to much. One thing ive learned this week is that no one is better than the other. We are all children of a loving Heavenly Father. He sees every single one of us equally no matter how much money we have,what career is, what kind of car we drive, how skinny we are, or what other people think of us. He knows each and every one of us individually and sees us for our true potential. He has given you all that he has, hes even giving you the chance to become more like him by experiencing life on earth. We are his children. Don’t EVER forget that.
I love you guys so much and hope you have a good week! Stay safe and remember who you are 🙂
P.s. “Ye shall not esteem one flesh above another, or one man shall not think himself above another.” We are all equal in value
