Happy Fathers’ Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to all you fathers! Really, we wouldn’t be anything without you!
Well, this week was a bit of a roller coaster : ) Some days we walked and talked with people on the streets and others days we had lession after lession of awesomeness :) Welp, that’s life for ya : )
The highlight of my week: WE FOUND YOLANDA AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We sort of lost her for a week, we called, passed by for our appointments and nothing. Then on Sunday we decided to call again and..... she picked up! We got to have a lession with her yesterday! She told us ¨I am going to get baptized and nothing that anyone says is going to stop me¨ can you believe it?!?!?!?!? This time we got to talk with her boyfriend (I don’t know the word in English . . . they have been together for 8 years but are not married) Juan, he’s just great! And we talked about how they had to get married before can get baptized. He has a baptismal date now too : ) Juan told us that he had asked her to marry him a couple of years ago and she said no. Woops! We all laughed, and then Yolanda asked ¨So do you want to marry me??¨ Hahaha, yup, I think we witnessed a proposal : )
This week I´ve been studying a lot about the Atonement of Christ. I believe that the Atonement is so vast and miraculous that we can´t begin to understand it all. We can only see an itty-bity part of the great big picture. As I was studying, I found a scripture I love in John 15:13, ¨Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.¨ Maybe we can´t understand everything, but I know that He loves us unconditionally and eternally. For that very reason, He suffered all he did in His love and compassion for us, and thanks to His sacrifice, He has even more love and sympathy for us!
SED DE BUEN ANIMO!
