La Expiación y La Obra Misional

This week we had another great week in la tierra de Milagro!! :) i love being here in Milagro!

Monday it rained ALL DAY!! we went to a visit we had waaaaay far out in our sector, and were walking in mud and puddles the whole way there and back.. i dont know how i didnt fall!! haha! it was quite the adventure!! We ended the night visiting the familia vera, who are such an awesome family!! :)
Tuesday we got to go to the temple for the start of the Leadership Council Meeting. We were a little rushed getting to the temple, but we made it in time and were able to enjoy the session. I am so grateful to have the temple close and in my mission, and that im able to attend at least once a month as a leader! :)

Wednesday we had our leadership meeting. it was great, and we learned more about our responsabilidades as leaders and how we can help and be better examples to everyone. We watched a great video about  missionary work called "The Atonement and Missionary Work" with Henry B Eyring and Jeffery R Holland talking... if you have time, take a moment to watch it, because it not only applies to missionary work, but callings and the responsabilities we have as members of the Church. 

Thursday we had interviews with President and Hna Riggins and the Asistentes. It went really well. i was soooo proud of my companion who has memorized the First Vision of Joseph Smith in english and she recited it for Hna Riggins in our interview. wow. She did great and the Spirit was there testifying of her words. it was such a neat experience, and im sooo grateful that Hna Peña is my companion! :) 
That day we also visited an investigator Rocio and her kids in las Margaritas. She has been sick for a long time, but this week when we invited her to go to church, she said she would come! even though she doesnt feel well still, she had the desire and wanted to come to church! :) we were soooo happy! as we shared about Joseph Smith and the First Vision, it was the first time she had heard that, but she believes that it is true.

Friday we had an intercambio with the hnas de Porvenir, and i went with Hna Quispe in her sector of Porvenir. it was great! we visited some great families, and i enjoyed working with hna quispe again (i went with her to barrio Samanes for a week a couple of weeks ago): she is an awesome missionary!! 

Saturday we visited Mercedes and taught her about the living profeta, Thomas S. Monson. We showed her a video of his last conference talk, and she enjoyed it. there were a bunch of mosquitos biting us during the lesson... but it was a good lesson! I know that Thomas S Monson is a prophet of God. He guides and helps us know the will of God for us in these days.

Sunday a miracle happened.... we had 8 investigators at church!!!! we were sooooo happy! as they kept coming in, i couldnt not believe it! i was so happy and grateful! Mercedes came to church, Rocio and her kids (who was taken to church by our great ward mission leader in his car!), and other families that we thought would not come, but came! it was amazing! Heavenly Father really blessed us. I am so grateful for His love. Even though i know i am not even close to perfect, i am so grateful that He blesses us for trying and blesses our efforts. I know He loves us!

I am so grateful to be a missionary. Its not always easy, actually missionary work is hard. But its hard, because "salvation was not an easy price to pay" (Jeffery R Holland). Nowhere in the scriptures does it say that missionary work is easy... but its hard, because thats the only way we can be better, and understand a little bit more about the Atonement. If we remember Jesus Christ, even when its hard, we will be given the hope and comfort we need to keep going. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know He loves us. By following His example of obedience and charity, we can truly find happiness and peace. 

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

con amor,
Hermana Warburton
