May 5th

Hello everyone! It happens to be another weekly update from the WKM!! Holy cow! This week has just flown by. To think that this is the second week into the transfers! That and Mothers' Day is coming up this week! WHOO!!!!

This week has really just been moving forward. I know that I day this every message, but I  am just so excited each day to get out and start!! The work is just an amazing thing to be a part of.

With the growing season of planting, pruning, and picking, the work is supposed to really slow down, but it hasent, and we are constantly busy seeing many people. It's just super exciting!! LOVE IT!

So a few week back, I told about a really cool guy that we ran into names Andreas. He has happened to be one of the hardest persons to get in contact with. We were walking down the road, then I randomly thought of him...and the need that we have to try each day to see him. Halfway through saying that, I looked over to my right and he was standing RIGHT THERE!!! So we had a really good conversation. Then he said that he will try really hard to come to church...and he did! So now we have full communication with him, even with the crazy scheduled that he has. So it was really cool!

We also got with Guadalupe...after a number of tries...and we were able to further talk about the Book of Mormon and its role. We also introduced it to the rest of the family, who are all really awesome!

On one exciting note during church at the Spanish Branch. We were at the end of a meeting, when one of the brothers said that the teacher for the Old Testament class wasn't going to be there, so he gave us the book and sent us on our way.... Really excited to do something like that, but it was5 minutes before the lesson...in Spanish, and an Old Testament story. It was the story of Balaam, so that was a really fun one. It was just a little harder with a smaller vocabulary than most people around here...XD
But the lesson went really well. (Read it in Numbers 22-30 {or so}) It's a great example of bring our will closer to that of the Lord's. And it's pretty fun, you cant go wrong with talking donkeys!
When I first read it I was thinking that it was going to say something like: "And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times? And Balaam FREAKED OUT."
But no, he replies back rather naturally. Anyway, it's a really good section of scripture. It teaches a good lesson!

Everything is going very well. I'm always grateful and glad to be here in Washington. I have such an amazing opportunity to learn and apply what I'm able to learn each day. That's the amazing thing about this life, we are here all together to learn and grow. The Gospel, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Atonement is the center of this life. We are here to gain joy and knowledge. And what a joy it is to be able to learn through the scriptures and Prophets in the Past and in our present day. Feast upon the words of Christ!! There is really nothing that can beat that!!

I love you all and hope the best for this week to come.
