Pensamiento Espiritual* (*Spiritual Thought): Jacob 4: 7

P-Day! :D Today, we took out money for March, cleaned, did Internet, and made pasta with red sauce for lunch! :D Then, we went to visit Loisy, obispo's* (*bishop’s) wife, and sat and talked with her for un buen rato* (*a good time). :) She's just fantastic. At night, we had a noche de hogar* (*Family Home Evening) with Otilia, member, and her husband Lucho, investigator, where we talked about the marvelous fruits of the Restoration of the Gospel. :)

Martes* (*Tuesday), we had Consejo de Lideres* (*Council of Leaders). :) I went with Hna Espinoza. We talked lots about stress, I gave a training on the ´positive clickers´ (THANKS MOM!), and we talked about being embajadores del Señor* (*ambassadors of the Lord). :D Presidente Silva brought me a natural medicine to try for my stomach, so we'll see how that goes! I also got permission to call and talk to Rosa Castro from Oxa, so we talked for about 20 minutes after lunch and it was the greatest tender mercy out there. :) Oh, how I love her. :) Luego* (*Then), we celebrated mija's 1st mes* (*my daughter’s first month) in the mish, visited Eleanora (new Investigator), and talked a bit about the Plan of Salvation, taught our investigator Aguira in a really spiritual lesson about the Plan de Salvacion* (*Plan of Salvation), and practiced our song como obra missional* (*as a missionary team - me, my companion and the ward mission leaders) for the ward talent show. :) Great day! :D

On Wednesday, we spent the morning contacting! In the tarde* (*afternoon), we visited Jose Galvez, new investigator, and taught him about the Restauracion* (*Restoration)! :) Luego* (*Then), we visited Clelia, investigator, and explained what happens after death, and she said that she wants to follow Christ's gospel to get to the celestial kingdom. :D We finished up visiting Judith, less active, and reading the LDM* (*Book of Mormon). :)

Jueves* (*Thursday)! We started the day off with a zone conference, where we planned THE GREAT ZONE FAST for our investigators. :) We then visited Miriam, member whose husband was a reference from the ward, and got to know her a bit better. :) Luego* (*Then), we visited my favorite people- Mary, Claudia, and Haroldo (investigators)! :) We taught them about the 10 Commandments and the Sabbath day. :) I love them! They've just been such a miracle. :)

Friday! Today, we visited Clelia, investigator, and explained the steps of the Gospel. Luego* (*Then), we visited Jeny, Kiara, and Lucero, investigators, and explained to them where we were before this Earth. :) We then went to Paula (investigator) and Fabricio (converso) and taught them the Gospel! She wasn't quite getting repentance, so I drew out a comic and explained it that way. :D To finish up the day, we did service with Judith, less active, helping her to get truffles ready to sell. :)

Sabado* (*Saturday), I taught mija* (*my daughter) how to contact in the morning! :) We contacted a family from Cerro de Pasco and it made me miss it. :( After lunch, we started our GREAT ZONE FAST focused on our investigators! :D All of our citas* (*appointments) fell through in the tarde* (*afternoon), so we contacted a bit more before clases* (*classes) and the ward talent show! :D As la obra missional* (*Me, my companion and the ward mission leaders), we sang If You Could Hie to Kolob! Aguira, Guillermo, Paula (investigators), and Fabricio (converso) came, so I sang Hallelujah/Aleluya (mix of english and spanish) with Fabri! Fun day. :D

Sunday! :) We finished our fast after church and did a member visit to Lyn and Roxana. :) They made us pancakes. They're the best. :) Luego* (*Then), we went to Leonardo and Mary, investigators!:D We did a jumbo lesson- Word of Wisdom, ley de castidad* (*law of chastity), 10 commandments, obediencia* (*obedience), and following the prophet! :D We're planning his baptism for Saturday the 18th. PRAYERS PLEASE. They're just brilliant. :)

Great talk I'd like to share this week: https://www.lds.org/general-conference/1996/10/according-to-the-desire-of-our-hearts?lang=eng

Con amor y mis oraciones para siempre jamas* (*With love and my prayers forever and ever),
