Libro de Mormon y Mas Navidad

Buenas tardes familia y amigos! Feliz Navidad! :)

This semana seemed to fly by so fast! Another monday and also another week closer to Christmas! wow!

This week we taught some of our new investigators and had some good lessons:) We are teaching a new family, Vicenta Coba and her 2 grandchildren, Josue y Michell. They are Evangelico, and so have a large Christian background, and belief in God. We taught Vicenta yesterday, and she said she read about 30 pages of the Book of Mormon, and talked about Nefi. and how of course Nefi was a prophet. God called prophets in the ancient times, and so why not now? She said that the Book of Mormon makes the Bible clearer. Wow! we were so impressed with her! This is what happens when the investigators read the Book of Mormon!! The Spirit can testify to them that it is true, and things become so much clearer. They are such a sweet family, and Vicenta (60 yrs old) is such a sweet lady!

On another note... we taught Erika (menos activo) y her husband Jose (investigator) on tuesday. he is very very smart, and has researched a lot about different religious things. Well we were teaching about how to recognize promptings of the Spirit, and shared Moroni 10:3-5... and i asked him what it means to him to meditate.... and for some reason he started talking about Hitler. Ah Hitler!!!! Wel....l i didnt really know what to say to that!! oh boy... haha, but they are a cute family, and we are happy to be teaching them!

This week we got to go to the temple 2 times!!! On wednesday we had a zone meeting with my zone and actually the old zone i was in in Quevedo with Presidente Riggins. it was a great day of learning more about the importance of the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith. It was also nice to go to the temple that morning. Also Presidente Riggins asked me and my comp and another hermana to, spare of the moment, to sing praise to the man for part of the training (like 10 minutes before we actually sang), because he knew we were singers. and it went really well! President Riggins said "of course you guys can sing, you toured!!" haha (because hermana childs and i toured in europe in the uam choir! hahaha)

We also went with our recent converts and members (that used to be menos activos) to the temple on Friday. It was so neat to see them go to the temple for the first time! they were so happy and so excited!! it was such a neat experience!

This week we also sang in a park as a zone for a stake party and contacted some people and shared the Christmas spirit which was fun!! 

on a funny note... our lunches here can be pretty funny at times.... sometimes the meals seem actually super american! like one day a hermano bought us asuper size meal from carls jr! it was good (but it was a huge hamburger and hermana childs and i about exploded!! )... but also we have meals where the cute hermanas basically command us to eat all the food on the table.. and its a little scary... but they are so cute and love to feed us that of course we eat all the food! but its so much food all the time! trust me we never go hungry here!! i about explode after every meal! we are always eating!! :) hahah! 

This week i was studying a talk from President Monson that i really loved about how we are never alone, and that God is always there to help us succeed. I loved this quote from him:

"Your Heavenly Father loves you- each of you. That love never changes. it is not influenced by your appearance, by your possessions, or by the amount of money you ave in your bank account. it is not changed by your talents and abilities. IT IS SIMPLY THERE. it is there for you when you are sad, or happy, discouraged or hopeful. God´s love is there for you whether or not you feel you deserve love. IT IS SIMPLY ALWAYS THERE."

i love this quote! God´s love is always there. And this is such a great time of year to remember the love that God has. He loves us so much He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, so that we all can be saved. Gracias a Jesucristo we can be saved and return to live with Them again. What a great message of peace!! Im so glad to be sharing this with others here in ecuador!

love you all so much! have a great week! share this great message of Christmas with everyone you meet! :) thanks for everything, all your love, letters, sweet notes, emails, and prayers! :) love you all!! :)

les amo,
