Prayer of Thanksgiving!!


This last week we saw many miracles in finding. We contacted a referral from the English missionaries for a guy named Frank. We taught him the restoration and he told us that he felt warm and that he knew the message was from God. Is was really neat to feel the spirit in that lesson. We were able to find a bunch of families and couples. One of the couples we contacted was Ricardo and Noel. We taught them the Restoration. They asked us to come back this Saturday. They became really interested when we told them that part of the restoration was the doctrine that families can be together forever. We were also teaching two brothers named William and Luis. We taught them the Restoration also and they were engaged in reading the pamphlet along with us. They also had questions why there are so many churches. They were also wondering why there are no more prophets today. They were very excited in learning about the restoration.

We also had a really cool miracle with some guys named Daniel and Samuel. Daniel already knew about the church and Samuel knew a little bit about it. They told us they did not like the idea of the Book of Mormon. It almost started to get to the point where they were bible bashing. Then we got bear our testimonies about the Book of Mormon and how it is evidence of the restoration and that we can the church is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet by reading the Book or Mormon. They were stunned. They thought the Book of Mormon was suppose to replace the Bible but they didn't realize that it was through the Book of Mormon we could gain a knowledge that the Church is true. They wanted us to come back and they also asked for a book of Mormon!

We also got to go to Branch Temple night. It was so much easier to go through in Spanish this time. I didn't think I was going to die this time. HAHA! It was easier to understand. Plus it was my favorite film where all of the comets are hitting the earth. It was really cool to see it in spanish. Plus it was SO AWESOME!!!! The first room has a mural in it!!!!! It was really awesome mural!!!! It had the Louisiana swamp look. There was an aligator, a deer, rabbits, ducks, pelicans, and other birds. It was really neat!!!! The Celestial Room had new furniture. It was awesome. I definitely needed that temple trip HAHA.

We also got a new Branch Mission Leader! He actually was the last Temple President, President Huerta. He is really cool. He told us that he is going to try and get President Hansen's permission for us to perform Initiatorys in Spanish. He thinks it would really help us with our spanish! THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME!!!!!! I am excited to have him as our branch mission leader.

So my Spiritual Thought is on.... Guess..... GRATITUDE!!!!!! AGAIN!!!! In the Scriptures we read continually about giving thanks to to Lord. Having a Prayer of Thanksgiving.  For example. Alma 37: 37

37 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day

May we continually prayer with Thanksgiving in our thoughts and continually thank our Heavenly Father For the blessings which we have receive. May continue to live with an attitude of Gratitude daily!

I love yall so much!!! YALL THE BEST!!!!!
