This week has been really hard but really rewarding! I hit my 4 month mark (wait, what?!) and we also got transfer calls yesterday! I'll be staying with my companion for a 3rd transfer in Toa Baja!!! I love this area and I'm super excited to see how Hna Garcia and I can change it. We have been contacting and working really hard to find new investigators or at least help our investigators progress. I feel really good about these next 6 weeks!
I have been focusing on a different attribute of Christ that I want to strengthen each week. This week I choose to work on patience because anyone that knows me knows that it is definitely an attribute that I'm lacking. One of my favorite scriptures is found in DyC 24:8 which says: "Be patient in afflictions for thou shalt have many; but endure them, for, lo, I am with thee even unto the end of thy days". I love this because it doesn't promise that our life will be perfect, but when we have those hardships and those trials we can turn to the Lord and know that he is there with us. It reminds me of Romans 5:3 which teaches: "... but glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience". Every experience we have in this life teaches us something and I hope that I can learn to be more patient.
I hope everyone has a good week and here are some more pictures of my recent convert and her cute family!
