Week 11 November 24-30, 2014

#ComparteLaDádiva #ShareTheGift
Hermana Simmmons and I got matching sweaters!!

 Some random guy got us a gift card while we were
having lunch!!!!

This week was really good.
Monday: p-day, lessons, the usual. but we had a party with the zone and we played a cool game called Curses.  that was really fun
Tuesday: lessons, we read the same chapters in the book of mormon over and over again.  but its cool, because I personally learn something different each time we read it.  even if its something small!
Wednesday: district meeting, because the zone leaders had to go to a training.  there is a new initiative out by the church, and if you have an ensign you may already know about it.  if not, go to ( ) and watch the video (He is the Gift (El es la Dadiva).  its SO COOL.  its about the true meaning of christmas, its really short and well worth your time.  then, SHARE IT!!! they are hoping over 220 million people will watch the video!
Thanksgiving Day
Thursday was thanksgivig, as you all know.  we had weekly planning all morning, but in the afternoon, we went to dinner, and we talked with a lot of people who kept coming in and out of our fiesta!  we had turkey, creamy potatoes, and honey ham.  there was A LOT of food.

Friday we taught several lesson, typical day, and we shared the christmas video with everyone we talked to.  so that was cool
Saturday was pretty much the same as friday, but we also had a scripture study class in the evening which was really good.
Sunday we had church.  one of the members brought a friend, who loved how we do church.  in his old church it was 4 hours of a preacher preaching, but we only have one, and then move around, and have discussion on gospel principles and doctrine.  he though that was so cool.  I had never thought about how cool that was.  we all learn from each other, but then we all gather, and ask God to teach us through the spirit, since that is the best way to learn knowledge.
just like in the book of mormon.  we read, then we ask God in the name of christ (prayer) if the things we have learned in our heads are true, and he answers to our hearts.

"The best way to obtain truth and wisdom is not to ask it from books, but to go to God in prayer and obtain divine teaching" Joseph Smith

I love you all and hope and pray for the best for each of you always!
Hasta Luego!
