Week 65: Dog attack...saw my life flash before my eyes!

Hola Familia,
Share 3 things that made you smile this week:
1. Conference, loved it all. I got to listen to it all in English:) I loved the part that said... He knew what time it is at home.  I know what time it is at home also, but yesterday I was sitting in a lesson and I realized how much I love being a missionary. I love that I can speak with the tongue of angels. It was a feeling I HAVE NEVER FELT BEFORE.  I was sad  and I hate that time seems to be flying by. I find myself thinking of home more then ever with conference, but I want to enjoy every minute that I have left.  

2. I saw my life flash before my eyes as a dog came with his mouth open after me... but thankfully he did not eat me... I thought he was going to...  lol 

3. Friday hardest day of my life... we finished an exchange in the morning and then we returned to our area and walked allllllllll day and no one was home.... when I say we walked all day I mean it. We had like an hour left in the day and we sat down in a park. We made a plan of places we were going to pass by and hopefully find a family... We said a prayer and left with hope to see a miracle... long story short we were fasting also and we found a family and this Sunday they watched conference!!!!

Favorite lesson?  Yesterday we had a lesson with G... she is a golden investigator that goes to school on Sundays but the spirit was really strong. She watched conference and told us that she knows it is true... I loved being able to testify of our living prophet after I had just listened to him. 

Favorite person? This week I have really learned to love my companion. I realized that the problems I saw were things I needed to change about myself.

How did zone conference go?  What did you focus on and was it well received? It went well ! We focussed on a whole bunch of things but one thing we did was showed them how to serve. We read them the story of when Christ washed His discipes feet and then we went and cleaned all the sister´s shoes. We also gave them personalized letter telling them how proud Heavenly Father was of them, 

How much conference did you get to listen to? All and in English 


I love you all:)))
