Las Brisas - Week 22

This week was great. We worked our hineys off and it was great- not that we don't anyways. We started a 40 day fast in our zone of things that could be holding us back from our full potential as missionaries. A lot of the stuff that I am fasting from are just tiny things that have really been making all the difference. My posture while im praying, organizing my study desk every night before bed so its ready in the morning. "... Y así vemos que por pequeños medios el Señor puede realizar grandes cosas." (1Nefi 16:29) We are finding more and more people to teach and we are seeing little miracles every day. 

One of these people that we found is named Guliano and he is the coolest! I really feel like back in his day he was pretty thug. I mean hes not old, maybe like late 30´s, but yeah he definitely has some thug in him. But it was funny cause a lot of times there are people that like to say stuff to us (por ejemplo, on the way to internet today some guy looked at me and kinda shouted ¨Everlasting love!¨ or new years eve there was a group of older men that were saying ¨Look! The angels have fallen from heaven!¨ But its really funny cause their pronunciation is really bad.) but anyways there is this group of jóvenes (young men) that always yell hellloo gringaas just to try and bother us a bit, But Guliano knows them! Anyways we met him at his house and walked across the street to the park and this group of jóvenes saw and yelled something and Guliano was like ¨Hey! Im trying to listen to the word of God! You guys should probably do that too!¨ It was really funny and Guliano is cool and has lots of interest and wants to learn more. ALso now were in with the thuggies on the block.

One thing that I was studying this week was about Grace. A lot of time when we think about the grace that our Heavenly Father and Jesucristo have for us we tend to think that when we put in all that we can that they will be there to make up the difference. That is true but that is not all. They aren't just there waiting for us at the finish line- or almost at the finish line waiting to help us finish- they are with us every step of the way. There are there to help us in the beginning, middle, and end. They know us and love us and want us to become the best that we can be- they want us to achieve the potential that they see in us. We can achieve this only through grace. Through the Atonement of Jesucristo. I love this Gospel and all the blessings that I have through it.
The mission is super hard but so far it has been one of the best decisions that I have made.
Les quiero mucho!
