Guess what we broke two windows!! So our house has a little room that has been added on, and in this little room we have a washer machine (yes washer machines are a big deal : ) ). But the door to this little room used to be an outside door.... note that Chilean doors do not have door knobs you just open it with the key..... As we were finishing up laundry Monday I closed the door behind me thinking I would conserve the heat in the house, only to realize 2 mins. later that I don’t have a key..... Yup, so we are in this little room with no key, no phone and no way to get out. First thing we do, Laugh until we cry, 2. PRAY 3. Survey the room 4. Pray 5. Decide that our only option is a window that leads into our room (not this used to be an outside window so there are bars) and measure my waist and head. 6. PRAY 7. Hna Carr BREAKS the window 7. Pray 8. Hna Carr literally shoves me through the window, which really would have worked if not for the extra weight I have obtained around my waist due to the quality and quantity of bread in Chile 9. Pray 10. Find out that the little window in the door is not plastic 11. Pray 12. Break the second window with LOTs of faith 13. I put my hand through the window and unlock the door 14. Celebrate with chicken nuggets and Nutella with tortillas
In the end we were in the room for about 2 and a half hours. haha It was a great bonding experience and honestly it was a blast : ) Hna Carrr will never forget her trainer
On a more spiritual note we made tons of progress with Maria! Who is the best Chilean grandma in the world! We have been working on teaching her how to understand the Book of Mormon more. She has a huge desire to understand every word but it’s not always easy for her. As I was thinking about what we could teach her. I realized If every blessing is dependent on your obedience to a law, we’ll all we need to do is find the commandment that promises us more knowledge and teach it! So we taught the Word of Wisdom, this is the commandment about what things we shouldn’t put in our bodies. When we follow this law we are promised more a clearer mind and more understanding. I am so excited to see her progress as she learns to live this law! I know that God will give her those promised blessings! And....... her daughter makes empanadas sooooooo we have 6 empanadas in the fridge just waiting to be cooked: )
I know that God Guides us! I could feel his help while we were locked in that room and as we taught Maria! I am praying for you and hope you can see his hand in your life!
Sed de buen animo!!!
PS don’t forget to watch General conference! This is a great opportunity to learn from a prophet of God!
