Orange Season September 29, 2014

it has been another great week here in ticul.

yesterday made me realize how grateful i am to be a missionary. yesterday the church was filled with members. when hermana rivera and i first got to ticul there weren't many active members attending church. at times there were 40 or 50 members for sacrament meeting and yesterday we had over 90 members at church. it was such a blessing to see that the work that we have been doing here with less active members is strengthing our branch so that one day it can be a ward. also, the general women's conference was so inspirational. i love elder uchtdorf and his talk that he gave on saturday about the importance to keep ALL of god's commandments. about a week ago we had an investigator that told us "god is like rain, he pours his blessings out on everyone and it doesn't matter what we do" well like elder uchtdorf said, when we break our heavenly father's commandents we put up our own personal umbrella which doesn't let us experience all the blessings that we could have. i know that he lives and i know that he loves every one of us and wants to to keep his commandments so that we can live with him again. my companion and i also started to memorize "the living christ" and i can already feel my testimony growing.
also it's orange season here! which makes hermana renteria and i very happy. it's almost better than mango and avocado season. in almost every lesson that we have taught this week someone gives us an orange or a clementine. 
i love you all! have a great week and watch conference. i can't wait to watch it, and i get to watch it in english again! hermana hoggan just arrived from utah and doesn't quite know english so we are going to watch it together in the family search center in the church. 
have a great week,

hermana williams
