We Have to Find Someone


Hope everyone had a beautiful Easter!

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Viento/aire- wind. As in, "It has been SUPER windy this week. For months everyone has been telling me that Holy Week is always windy. Now I understand.
Polvadera- sandstorm. As in, "Sometime the crazy wind causes sandstorms. They look like little tornados that suddenly erupt from the ground and make their way down the street. Sometimes the sand hits your legs and hurts."
Ninja- ninja. As in, "We´ve become ninjas, quickly making a 180 has soon as we see a sandstorm coming toward us so that the sand doesn´t get in our eyes."
Revelación- revelation. As in, "we can all receive personal revelation from God by praying and listening to the Holy Ghost. We can´t receive revelation for other people. Prophets, however, receive revelation from God for the whole world. A prophet of God is going to speak to us this weekend, and you can see it!"

This Tuesday we had a cool experience.
We actually had a hard day. We had a lot of appointments, and nobody was home most of the day. We walked around in sandstorms with a great member who accompanied us all day. around 6 we finally found someone to visit and had a short lesson. We dropped the member off in her house and started walking in the direction of our house. It was 7:30and we had no idea what to do. We hadn´t had much success and we were a bit discouraged. But we said, "It´s 7:30and we haven´t found anyone. We have to find someone."
I randomly thought of someone who I street contacted about 6 months ago and we started walking toward his house. We never got to his house because after walking about a block we ran into someone who we had met several weeks ago but couldn´t find because she didn´t have a phone and she was never home. We set an appointment with her and she gave us her new phone number!
Then we kept walking toward the house we were going to, but we passed a house where we´d been knocking looking for a referral and they hadn´t ever been home. The lights were on. So we knocked on their door and they let us in happily. We found out that the Sisters were visiting them last year, but when they got transferred the new Sisters had never found them (that would be Hermana Hernandez and I when we showed up to find an area book without addresses). She told us that she had been hopinmg we´d find her and start visiting her again. She went out of town after that, but we´ll visit her again in this week!
Guess what else, she make cheese. It´s even better than the other cheese we found. She gave us half of the brick of cheese from her fridge. I love her.

This week was a bit tough because pretty much everyone went out of town for the Holy Week break that thay had from school and work. We walked a lot. It was alright though, we just smiled and kept walking. We´re looking forward to this week to keep walking and keep working.

I want to finish with onelast Easter thought before moving on with the rest of Spring.

"And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no sting, there could have been no resurrection.
But there is a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.
He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death." Mosiah 16:7-9

There is a resurrection. We have light in this dark world. We have direction in our lives. Christ lived, died, and lived again for each of us.

Follow Him!

Have a great week :)
