Lets make this week a Mighty Prayer Week! He wants to hear you, he is always waiting!
I think this was probably the craziest, most full week, and spiritual week of my mission. I said goodbye to Elder Cowley, a very hard goodbye, but we know we completed the tasks the Lord asked of us and we understand that we have an eternal friendship. I Then stayed with an Elder from the zone, Elder Garside, hes a great Elder, we had the chance to get to know one another, we also went on an early run, so great.
Monday I went and got my new companion, Elder Limaico!!!!! Hes from Ecuador, he is 21, he has 5 years as a member along with his family, he has about 16 months in the mission, he was in the mission Chiclayo, but than he got moved to Cajamarca which is now in the boundries of the Trujillo Peru Norte mission. He was the personal secretery for about 6 months of the Chiclayo mission, but he is a new zone leader, so I get to show him the ropes. He is about 5´1", He is smaller than McKenzi, hahah hes such a stud muffin, I love him, but he really does remind me of an umpalumpa from wonkas movie, if he had blue hair ooohhh man!!! I love him though, he is very patient with me and we will learn so much together, I am so very greatful for him.
The changes happened, we have two more missionaries that are changing, that is 5 companionships in the zone that are training, CRAzY, we are a very young zone, which is great because the Lord can mold us so much. They are the best missionareis in the whole world. I testify of that!! They teach me soo much everyday!! We had our District meeting on wednesday, so great, I Love being a missionary, we just help people come to Christ! Thats it! Greatest work there is to do if you ask me!
Thursday we went to Concilio, the Leadership meeting, the whole mission is now mixed. So what happened with the divison is the areas stayed the same, the zones everything, just the line of the mission. So, the Trujillo mission dropped off 5 zones from the south, and obtained 4 up north from the Chiclayo mission so our zone didnt change, we just have a few other missionaries from the other mission of chiclayo. They worked in a totally differnt way, so we are trying to help them adjust to the best mission in the whole world!!! Its so great. We have the best Presdient, President Marler, is INCREDIBLE! Thats just the truth. Anyways that meeting was soo great, we played futball after and my companion is the best!! he plays soooo goood, he was burning everyone, sooo funny!
Today, The best day ever! We went to the temple as a zone. I will never forget this expierence. Oh how neat it was to sit in the celestial room with the zone, to have the chance and blessing to look into there eyes and to see the things Heavenly Father sees in them, then give them a hug and tell them you love them. I realized thats what our Fathers plan is, thats what he desires, thats all he focuses on, just that. He just wants us, his children to enter into his presence so he can give us a hug, look into our eyes, and tell us he loves us! I learned so very much today. We all must do all we can to be ready for that day, and to help other prepare for that day. I hope and pray thats what I can accomplish for the rest of my life, here. I just need to Pray more mightly, constantly have the spirit, and always use the eternal Atonement!
I love you all, and thank you for your support and prayers. Lets make this week a Mighty Prayer Week! He wants to hear you, he is always waiting!
