May the Odds Be Ever In Your Favour!

This week was a bit of a whirlwind!

We changed our house to an apartment in the same block as the bishop's. The problem with old house is that everyone knew where we lived and some tried to enter the house at night. Do not worry! I never felt like we were in any danger, nor Hermana Stone, but at least we are safe and sound in an apartment now. The bishopric of El Mirador and Germany (outlying areas), the leaders of the area and a group of members came to help us move. We had everything in the other house in about an hour and a half. Our neighbors in the apartment next door helped us put together the bunkbeds and carry stuff up the stairs. I would say everyone had a good workout because our apartment is on the fourth floor!  LOL!

The view from our window...

We did a lot of searching for new people to teach this week. It's interesting to look back and see how things have changed. I used to hate to contact people and knocking on doors. Now I love it! It is the only way we can find people who are hoping and praying to find the Gospel and people that Heavenly Father has prepared!

The bishop asked me to give a talk on Sunday. I based it on 2 amazing General Conference talks,"Is It Still Wonderful To You?" and "Are You Sleeping Through the Restoration?"


Sometimes we can fall into a routine and lose the wonder that the Gospel brings us. We become indifferent to the blessings and happiness in living the principles that Jesus taught. Do you feel there is something missing is your life?  Do you feel that maybe church is not working for you?  I invite you to read or watch one of these talk and to think about what you can do to improve your life and fill the empty spaces that you may currently have within your heart.

Love you all lots! <3

Look! It's the Hunger Games! LOL! We found this statue during a service project.

Trying to figure out what this is...

The Santander family came from La Marina for a visit!  <3
