Amazing Week :)

Hello everyone!!:)
This week was so amazing! There is this quote that stuck with me during this week! It says, "There is a power that enters into your life as you begin a serious study of the Book of Mormon and Bible"
(President Ezra Taft Benson). I really like this quote because it is so true! I have been trying to really seriously study the Book of Mormon and Bible. My companion is so knowledgeable when it comes to the scriptures and is a great example to me! She has taught me really good ways to study!:) The gospel of Jesus Christ is truly what is important!

Victor is doing so great! In one of the lessons this week, he explained to us how it is hard to put his spiritual needs first when he is struggling with his physical needs! And how he really needs a job to feed him before he can provide for his spiritual needs. After he said that, something flowed out of my mouth, "Victor as you put God first and as you continue to go to church and read the scriptures, you will find a job and everything else will work out." After the lesson, Sister Griffin said she was going to say the exact same thing! Just the other day Victor called us and said HE GOT A JOB!!!! Miracles are real and they do happen as you put God first. I remember in the MTC one of my teachers told me that as missionaries we have the ability and power of God to make promises with people, and they WILL come true. We are called and chosen and set apart and qualified to do so, and I can totally see this now!

Funny stories: hahahaha!!! Okay so during the Festival of Lights this month, our record for the amount of people who have come in one night is over 6,000!!! We have a lot of crazy people that come in...
One night my companion and I were talking to this one lady when all the sudden this crazy man came running up to me and in a baby voice said "Aww look at your little smile" ... And then he hugged me and picked me up and squeezed me to death... HE PICKED ME UP... My companion was like YOU CANT DO THAT!!! It was so awkward. Ya he was going around and hugging all the sisters and just being super weird... Let's just say he got escorted out.
This other time this man that was SUPER in to bowling came up to us and tried to get us to join his special needs bowling team... I'm not sure what he was inferring hahaha but He made us write down his phone number and all his information to join his team... I guess I should start practicing ;) haha just kidding!

Well that is my crazy week! At zone conference we had a really nice meeting with President Cooke! We are all disciples or followers of Jesus Christ who are continually repenting! " Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I have been called of him to declare his word among his people, that they might have everlasting life" (3 Nephi 5:13). As missionaries we are one of the few to represent Jesus Christ and are humbled by this great responsibility! The test is what we take home with us at the end! I am learning what it truly means to forget yourself and go to work and the blessings that come from putting God first! You never leave yourself or the Lord so stay true to yourself and the Lord! Hang on to that hope when all is lost! The only person that can stop you from progressing is you!

Everyone watch and share the two new Christmas videos on!! If you haven't seen them yet, that's okay I can quote them ;) haha! We see them so much but they are so good!:) Talk to ya next week!
