So transfers have rolled around again! And for the first time I’m going to spend a second transfer with the same companion. I am very grateful because I still have so much more to learn from Hermana Hilbun and from La Romana.
This week we traveled to a part of our area where we’d never been before. We took a 20 minute bus ride farther out into the country. It was beautiful!! And the area has basically never been visited by missionaries. I could tell by the increased amount of stares we received haha =) From the minute we got there, we saw miracles. One being, the Lord guided us to a family of 11! They had such a beautiful Spirit. The parents came to church on Sunday and we felt the Spirit strongly as we taught them. I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY!!!
I also learned a lot about humility this week. I was studying and pondering about how we can find spiritual progression without any really hard trials. The Spirit testified to me of my absolute need for my Savior in every minute of every hour. Before, I was trying to improve mainly by my own efforts and rely little on His grace. Now, relying on His grace has become my central focus as I try to give Him all my heart, might, mind and strength.
I love Moroni 7:48. We have to pray with all the energy of our hearts so that He can FILL us with HIS love.
I love you all!!!
