So This week was awesome! Very Wet and Raining though! We saw amazing miracles during our finding this week. We tracted into a couple of familes that were interested in learning more about the gospel. There was a crazy miracle that happened where we took a member with us to our most progressing investigator, Leo, to an appointment we had with him. When we got there he wasn't home but his neighbor who we had already tracted into opened his door. He ended up inviting us in and the member was able to answer difficult questions which would be hard to explain in spanish. He also bore his testimony how he was like them, a catholic, had questions about life, and didn't want to change. Then he asked. When are you going to come back? It is so true that god puts you into situations where you are needed when you dont expect it. We also contacted a guy named Luis who was interested in the book of mormon we were holding. We shared the restoration with him then asked if we could return. He said he would talk to us at our church on Sunday. Well of course he didn't come so we follow up with him and he told us because of the rain he didn't go. So we decided to do the Book Of Mormon lesson. He loved it and asked us to come back on Wednesday. We have been having amazing experiences as we have been diligent in finding and doing the work of the lord. We have seen Miracles!

So yall probably saw the Pictures but it was so awesome!! I GOT TO GO TO AN LSU FOOTBALL GAME IN TIGER STADIUM!!!! Which is acutally one of the largest football stadiums in the US. LSU sisters hooked us up with free tickets in the lower bowl!!!! They played against western Kentucky! IT WAS SO AWESOME!!! They of course won. We weren't able to stay for the whole game so we could make it back home in time for our curfew. IT WAS CRAZY!!!! Very loud. AND SO MUCH RAIN!!!!! But SO FUN!!!!!! I am so glad I went!!! Definitely want to do it again!!!! It was a little difficult without having the yellow line the computer does for the first down but it was awesome!!!!

So for my spiritual thought comes from one of my favorite hymns Truth Reflects Upon Our senses. So I took the challenge from the talk "What Lack i Yet" and also an instruction that President Hansen gave on Repentance and asked what lack I yet. I got the answer to think more postively about others. So what I have been doing is reading a hymn every time I think judgmental or criticize someone called Truth Reflects Upon Our Senses It says

1. Truth reflects upon our senses;
Gospel light reveals to some.
If there still should be offenses,
Woe to them by whom they come!
Judge not, that ye be not judged,
Was the counsel Jesus gave;
Measure given, large or grudged,
Just the same you must receive.
2. Jesus said, "Be meek and lowly,"
For 'tis high to be a judge;
If I would be pure and holy,
I must love without a grudge.
It requires a constant labor
All his precepts to obey.
If I truly love my neighbor,
I am in the narrow way.
3. Once I said unto another,
"In thine eye there is a mote;
If thou art a friend, a brother,
Hold, and let me pull it out."
But I could not see it fairly,
For my sight was very dim.
When I came to search more clearly,
In mine eye there was a beam.
Blessed Savior, thou wilt guide us,
Till we reach that blissful shore
Where the angels wait to join us
In thy praise forevermore.

May we Be people that look for the good in others as we go about our days. May we continue to have the mindset that we are all brothers and sisters of our loving Heavenly Father. May we see people as the Savior sees them. I am so grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ that allows us to change to become better. I know the church is true!

I miss all yall! Be safe!!! And Make GOOD CHOICES!!!!!!
