"Scripture reading brings blessings" (October 13, 2014)

so! i really don't have much this week. we have to stop seeing a bunch of people because they arent reading or not doing this so yeah. this week many things fell through and we spent a lot of time contacting. its fun having a new companion. she and i get along really great. shes weird and quirky and likes merlin just like me! so this will be a fun transfer. we taught many lessons still, i dont know how but one thing we are doing is we are going around and teaching the members actives the missionary lessons.
end of transfer with Hna. Carlson - name tags

we think this will be a nice way to help them strengthen their testimonies! we will see though. so yes jose is the one who started smoking again. patricia the convert was the niece of our presidents wife. i didnt talk about her too much cuz i didnt want to jynx her progress haha but ugh guess what. so she couldnt receive the espiritu sant because it was general conference last week so we were going to do it this week but her baby got sick and she went to santa fe and so we havent seen her since last tuesday and she doesnt have the holy ghost. :( her baby is okay they are just doing some tests on her but its just so frustrating how the adversary can get in the way of things. but we just do our best. also lucila is super sick and couldnt come to church either.... uhmmmm so we have this inv shnell who came to church this week and he really is our only inv who is progressing. hes so funny and just one of those old quirky men. he lives alone and his house is like a old car dump cuz he has 5 car bodies laying around with rusty old boats and all sorts of machines. his two fingers on his right hand are cut from the tip like dads one finger but his is right below the nails...hes so weird but super nice and religious. please pray for him that he will continue to progress...
ugh the guy in the ciber started to smoke. that is one regla that i wish they had here but whatever. 
so this week we also ran into anti americans and that wasnt fun. they were saying things like, well its not your fault where you were born, and the the states do nothing for anyone...idk there was a lot of hate and it took all i had to not get patriotic on them and just start debating. i just stuck to talking about the gospel of jesus christ. dang ive changed soo much hahaha
so the first week being senior comp. its really not that different but there is a tiny bit more responsibility there is there. pero bueno. today we are going to the mission home for trametes. i will try to be able to visit monica maybe but that is a big maybe. we have her number so ill just call if i can! 

hermana fry!!!
so my new comp!! her name is hermana fry. she is 19 almost 20 from oregon! she has 3 months in the mission field but speaks spanish really well. she took classes in school so she has awesome grammar! she is una capa! yay im super excited for this next transfer with her! and interestingly enough we didnt have too many problems with the language. ive decided to focus on what i do know of spanish than what i dont know. and its been pretty wonderful seeing how god has had such a hand in this experience. and in helping me learn this language.
so funny! hma fry has had some fun times on the bike getting used to riding in a skirt and all. and today after buying groceries we were riding with all of it on the handle bars or whatever and we had to brake hard at a stop and she couldnt brake in time because one of the brakes broke so she just ran into me haha and then some groceries fell out of the bag but all is well! oh and yes i bore my testimony in chruch and on my way back to my chari i slipped and almost fell haha so we are just two little clutzy hermanas haha
it is very important that we study the scriptures daily. we must set time aside to read these words of the prophets and of christ and if we do this we have some pretty awesome promises. 1. we will be more able to hear the whisperings of the spirit. 2. our faith will grow. 3. we will be able to resist temptation 4. we will have a closer relationship with heavenly father and jesus christ. in helaman 3: 29-30 we can read about these promises and that if we do these things, we will sit at the right hand of god. so again as a missionary i invite all of you to read the scriptures everyday and set aside time in your day to dedicate to the study of god's word. i know tht god loves each and everyone of us so perfectly. his love for us is the basis of everything that he has given us and will give us. i hope we can all love god more and show him our love through our actions, mainly through obedience to his commandments and loving others.
hope you all have an awesome week! and read your scriptures!!! :)
