Testimonio y Nombres

Una otra semana en Ecuador! :) Sol y calor como siempre!! :)

We had a good week this week! :) my new companion (hermana alvarez) and i worked hard to contact lots of people and find new investigatores. i love working with hermana alvarez. she is amazing!! such a great missionary and has such a great testimony. and she is ALWAYS looking for ways to serve others. she is a great example for me.

This week we were visited the familia Nuñez, a menos activo familia. they are so sweet!! i just love this family! they actually remind me of my own family. they are always happy and making jokes, but they also have a great love of the Gospel. We taught them the 10 commandments this past week, and did fun hand signals to remember them all. they got a kick out of that and remembered the hand signals the next time we visited them too!! so it was fun, AND they remembered the 10 commandments too!! :) 

We also found a new family that is super great. the familia mendoza. they are really sweet and were a reference of another family in the ward. they are really interested in the book of mormon and learning more! :)

This week i learned about the power of a testimony. we were teaching a lesson this week to a less active couple and they started arguing in front of us. la verdad, i didnt know what to say or do. i wasnt exactly sure what scripture to share or what we should say. i looked at my companion, and she just started to bear her testimony. the second she started to bear her testimony, the Spirit came into the room again, and we both felt like we should share about the Atonement. she started talking about a scripture in the book of mormon, i knew and was guided to exactly where the scripture was and we shared it with them. that was one of the most guided-by-the-Spirit lessons i have ever taught. i went from not knowing what to say, to having the words put in my mouth. it was a great experience for both of us!!

on a funny note... i hear just about everything about how to pronounce my last name. washington. waaarburton. warbuuuurttuuun. waalalala. almost NO ONE can say my name. and it can be kind of funny sometimes!! :) but this last week, there was a taxi driver and he was trying to say my name and finally just ended up saying "well its like you are gargling water and then spitting it out!! hermana waaaaa twooooon" hahah. i laughed pretty hard at that one! he was pretty clever!!

This morning i was reading the talk by elder uchtdorf from the last conference- He will put you on His shoulders and carry you home. wow. what a great talk!!! i really liked when he said "the sheep is worthy of divine rescue simply because it is loved by the Good Shepherd". i know this is true. i know that no matter who we are, no matter how far we think we have fallen, we are never out of His reach. i know he loves us, and "with each step of faith on the path of discipleship, we grow into the beings of eternal glory and infinite joy we were designed to become." He will guide us, and He will always be there to help us. i have seen how the Atonement can change lives, and help us when we most need it! 

love you all! have a great week!! :)

con amor,
Hermana Warburton
