Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalms 46:10-11

If We Continue In Faith The Lord Will Bless Us 4/1/2013

Hi There Family!

How is everyone up North? Hope you had a super exciting week! To our much surprise, we did!  As anyone who has served a mission in Latin America can testify, Semana Santa is probably the worst week of the whole year (maybe only beat by when the fair comes to town!) We, this week, had the double advantage of having it be Semana Santa AND with Central Park in our area, the fair was in town!  So there was a TON of people who went to the coast, the people that didn't go to the coast had people from the coast visiting them and everyone else was in central park at the fair! Now, I'll let you know that I don't have any photos of Semana Santa seeing as we were running all over all week trying to find out what to do and trying to avoid the park (which at times was difficult seeing as our entire area is based around the park but hey, you do what you gotta do!). And our week went really, really well. They best week that we have had in a long time to be honest.

I won't say that all day of every day this week we had a ton to do because such was not the case, but the Lord works in mysterious ways and I definitely received a testimony of that this week. Blessings came from places that they were never expected and we were just blown away :)  Most of the week was super hard. We were looking and looking and looking and even resorted to contacting for hours at a time (because even the members were on vacation so we couldn't try to go get references there). But we just went and went and went and went and looked and looked and looked and looked and Sunday night we were very blessed. We got a member to go out and work with us, and he randomly pulled out of nowhere 2 families that we were able to visit and teach and set up return visits. They seem like people that could progress. We just testified of Christ, of his atonement and resurrection and all that he has done for us. We hope to keep teaching them in the future. We have been in major need of a miracle and this I feel is the answer to all the prayers and work that we have been doing.  If we continue in faith the Lord will bless us.  Remember that always.  

As for our progressing investigators, they're not really progressing anymore. Some of them we can't find, others moved away, a lot of crazy stuff that has happened recently but with what's happened this week we're just super duper excited about what's to come! Also, I'm in trio again haha. The area next door to ours, one Elder had changes and his comp didn't have a comp so we're working both areas and we have a third comp so that's pretty cool :)=  Its a lot of fun, we're working both areas and we hope to baptize in both areas :)  Life is super good, hope all is well on the home front!
