Alma 44:4 Now ye see that this is the true faith of God; yea, ye see that God will support, and keep, and preserve us, so long as we are faithful unto him, and unto our faith, and our religion; and never will the Lord suffer that we shall be destroyed except we should fall into transgression and deny our faith.
Hola a todos!
It has been a challenging week, but we were triumphant!

Our biggest test of this last week was moving...We only had to move about a block and a half from where we were living but the move seemed much longer than it should have been because Elder Navarro and I were moving everything. None of the members were able to help and so my companion and I carried our beds, the tables, chairs, books, refrigerator, and books by hand to our new smaller house. And it just so happened to be a million degrees that day as well so we slept super well Tuesday night because we were dead tired and burnt from the sun. This was the second time moving houses in the mission and it is not the most fun thing to do haha.

The moving day had an effect on us physically for the rest of the week but we endured to the end of week exherting all of our strength for the Lord. We now have set days to go to Boscoso and Potrerillos and the members who live there feed us lunch at 2:00 pm so we can work there for the whole day. This area is much more interesting and fun when we can look for new people in these ranchos.

Elder Navarro is so awesome! He sure knows how to make me laugh! Sometime we lose our patience with each other but at the end of the day we always end our planning session with a hug. I love training and helping him become a successful missionary!
Receiving the blessings of the Lord requires much more than a belief in Him, but requires us to live as an example, as a testimony of the faith and confidence we have in Him. The Gospel helps us have this eternal perspective of ourselves, God and the world. There is safety in obedience. This I know is true.
