Another week has passed by and its already week 6¡! Crazy stuff... In this past week i hit a milestone on my mission, unfortunately it wasn't a but i hit my year mark! It was "hump day" haha so we went to this restaurant, pio pio, (wasn't impressive, just spanish food :P I've had better, much better) then right after that, we had a lesson with a recently returning less active :) went really
well, talked with her about temples, (quick background, she hadn't been to church in a few years, and she came back, has only missed one , second she gave a prayer, missed third, fourth received a calling!) so she has also started the temple prep classes on her own, and after a beautiful meal, we shared our message and she also agreed to going to the temple to do baptisms! Yayyy! We have been also teaching Olga in her tienda twice weekly now, teaching the lessons, this last time she couldn't make it, cause she was prepping for a
event that happened , and it didnt go well sadly, she ended up losing out of money, triste. Okay and probably the most exciting thing this week for me is a 'less-active' he is only less active cause he has not been to the temple in a year, but his wife is extremely less active (cause she got offended) and his younger sister isnt a member but attends weekly, but this isnt all! Hermano Ortega was good friends with none other than the familia Martinez! How crazy is that?! I knew this guy when i went to the flushing branch, we would play soccer every night! And he hasnt been to the temple in six years! Cause he just hasnt got his recommend! So we are going to try and take him this next transfer, and i better still be here! Hahah i love this area with a burning passion, New York has truly become my home, i love everything about it! Especially the people! I know this
church is true by the way it effects lifes, Matthew 7:16-17 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Im in love with the gospel, this is the real deal! Well mom is going to send questions for me to answer And i had Mori Soñando (english translation of this heavenly drink is 'I died dreaming') ill have to see if i can get the video we took and send it to yall, it was AMAZING HAHAA, I also got to go to the temple, needless to say, it was well needed and i learned alot, it was another extreme high light of the week, i didnt want to leave,
Well ill send pictures too! Love yall! Thanks for all your support, and love yall have shown me,
