Miracles in Santa Cruz!


So here in Santa Cruz all the way down to Talca there have been so many fires. Forest fires, buildings burning and houses burning and the smoke has been so strong that we have had to stay inside our house 3 different days becuase it was so thick it was making missionaries really sick. But through the smoke our loving Lord has showed us some MILAGROS THAT ARE WORTH TELLING.

So Tuesday my compi and I left without our cell phone charged, like always and we had a very long day. The smoke was so heavy we weren't feeling all that great and we were just being rejected a lot, one of our fechas called us to tell us she didn't want us to come over anymore. Then to top it all off we had to go to a Catholic misa where we had to listen for 2 hours reciting prayers and hail marries and it was a little difficult to swallow for such a long time. 

So when we got back to the house we were so incredibly tired and it was like 9:20 so we charged our phone and we had 7 missed calls from the assistants to president... and we were a little concerned so we called them back and they told us that we have to bring an investigator to the zone conference tommorow and it was almost time to be in the house and we didn't have a clue who to ask! But the thought came to mind that we could go to our investigator, Flors house. So we got on our knees said a prayer to have Heavenly Father help us invite Flor to the conference and we went off in broken bikes to Flors house. We got there invited her and she said YES. TO TRAVEL WITH US 2 HOURS TO RANCAGUA TO GO TO A ZONE MISSIONARY CONFFERENCE THE NIGHT BEFORE. So we took her the next day. It was incredible. We learned together with her. She had a note book out the whole time and the spirit was so incredibly strong. She then came to church with us this Sunday asked for a blessing so she could quit smoking and WE ARE JUST UP THE THE HEAVENS HAPPY WITH FLOR.

We have been working so hard this transfer and we have seen CUAL QUIER OBSTACULO I CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO EXPLAIN.  But we have seen the miracles that God has in store for us. Our president taught us this conference the importance of loving others as Christ loves them. It has truly helped me know how to better help them.

I love these Chileans with all my heart. This week so many things happened but I think that there's not enough time to tell it all.

I love you all and I'm so happy to be here serving these people. I WILL HIT A YEAR FRIDAY AND I CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN HOW FAST THE TIME GOES HERE.  Please pray it will go a little bit slower so I can just soak every second of being a missionary in.

Have a great week and don't forget to do the little things. Pray, read scripture and go to church. God is in the details, only if we do them and show Him our obdience to him.

Con mucho amor
