Yet another week as flown by!

The sun is OUT! This week we had a lot of great opportunities to contact and find new families to teach. Every week the youth play soccer at night and almost all of them are nonmembers. We were able to talk with them and set up an appointment for the following day. To our surprise 6 - 18 year old boys showed up wanting to learn more about the church. Hermana Morales and I got the opportunity to have a lesson with all of them. They are awesome and were open to asking questions with a desire to learn more. It turns out all 6 live in the area of the other sisters, but we still were able to teach them more about the gospel and feel of the Spirit.

We had stake conference yesterday! The chapel, gym, and stage were full! I got the opportunity to direct the music. About 15 minutes before they were suppose to show the broadcast, the power system caught on fire... We were without lights, fans, and sound. The Stake President talked through a megaphone and they started the meeting as two Hermanos worked on the power. We all said a prayer and 2 minutes after the broadcast started, they got the power up and running. We still didnt have very much air, but it was awesome to see the miracle in Stake Conference. 

We had a lot of opportunities to contact new families this week. The Lord definitely puts people in our paths every day and its so important that we are always looking for those people. Yet another week has flown by! Cant believe Ive been out on my mission for 9 months already. Pretty crazy. I love being a missionary and seeing tender mercies every day. I get reminded a lot here of how blessed I am to have been born in a good country. I never want to take that for granted. 

Heres a scripture I found that made a pretty big impact on me. Disfrutenlo!

1 Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation ataken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be btempted above that ye are able; but will with the ctemptation also make a way to descape, that ye may be able to ebear it.
Hermana Sherman
