Hola beautiful people!
Okay here’s my Spanish mess up this week. So we’re teaching about the Restoration with our investigator Heissy and Hermana Girón always explains it with this analogy about how if you had a wooden table and a leg broke off, you would replace it with the same type of wood, not with plastic or whatever. So I was TRYING to do this same awesome analogy but I accidently said ”So if you had a table made of bananas…” (I used to word maduro instead of madera and apparently here in Costa Rica maduro means platano which is a type of fruit kinda like a banana) and yeah Heissy was a little confused haha. But it’s fine Hermana Girón cleared everything up and we survived lol.
And Hermana Evelyn was baptized this week! I’m not sure if I’ve told you guys about her but she’s awesome and we found her like my first week in Costa Rica. We were looking for someone else and were standing in the middle of the street looking really lost (because we were haha) and she’s like ”Do you need help?” and Hermana Girón was like ”yes please” and so she pointed us in the right direction and so then we were like ”Muchas gracias!! And what is your name?” And proceeded to set up an appointment with her, and it turns out she is AMAZING and really wanted to change her life to be centered on Christ and His love! And she really has changed! It’s been incredible.
And here’s an awesome quote that I found this week and been trying to work on:
“At the heart of the English word atonement is the word one. If all mankind understood this, there would never be anyone with whom we would not be concerned, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, or social or economic standing. We would strive to emulate the Savior and would never be unkind, indifferent, disrespectful, or insensitive to others.”
– M. Russel Ballard
Wow so good. And also so hard. But I’m trying to really love others as the Savior would, and the small glimpses I catch of the love He has for them is INCREDIBLE.
I love you all!!
