Scripture mastery -November 17, 2014

jasmin was baptized this tuesday! it was such a great feeling. she is so great and ever since i met her i have been so excited to see her get baptized and continue on being a faithful member of the church. she is already preparing to go to the temple in the next few weeks. the rest of our investigadores are doing great too. miguel angel is going to be baptized this week! his baptism wasn't going to happen until december but this week we randomly saw him walking home from work (we can usually only visit him on saturdays and sundays because he gets home late) and we were doing visits with one of his new friends from the ward, misael, and we were like hey lets talk for a minute. we started teaching him and at the end of the lesson hermana smith was like "hey do you want to get baptized next week?" he said YES and he's so excited. he's now going to institute on sunday and he visited other investigators with us again this week. we are starting to see the fruits of our labor here in chichenitza. 

also this week was a little bit crazy with divisons. hermana smith and i discovered a few problems that are going on in the zone. we are trying really hard to help the other hermanas in our zone so we are going to be in divisions all week next week, starting tomorrow night until friday! ahhhh. i'm going to miss my companion a lot but i am happy to be able to help others.

also stake conference was this week and it was so so so so wonderful. the temple and mission presidents came and a seventy came. the talks were beautiful. what i loved the most is that president garcia did an interview like thing with a few recent converts and recently activated less active members and he talked to them about what did they feel like when they came or came back to church for the first time, how the gospel has changed them, and each one spoke about the blessings they have received. one of the recent converts last year spoke and shared his testimony and practially everyone was in tears because he was so grateful for the missionaries and for everyone that helped him to accept the gospel in his life. he is just about to complete one year of being a member and is going to start his mission papers in a few weeks. 

i am so grateful for the oportunity taht i have to be a missionary, i don't think i say it enough. i love this work and i KNOW without a doubt that this is the lords work and this is his true and living gospel. i know he lives.

also president garcia is the BEST! like two weeks ago he told all of the missionaries that if we memorized the 25 book of mormon scripture masteries that we could go to the temple december 3rd! so far hermana smith and i have memorized 12. we walk around with flash cards all day and recite scriptures in our hammocks at night. it's pretty fun. go spanish scripture mastery!

well i love you all,

hermana williams
