''For you receive no witness until AFTER the trial of your faith"

Hola Familia!!!!

So it's good to hear the weather was just as crazy there as it has been here! i seriously had to switch from short sleeves shirts to sweaters almost everyday. Gotta love that right? We also don't have any more gas for the boiler so we have been showering with freezing cold water the last few days which has been a whole lot of fun... haha. 

Well this week has been really awesome for us and we have finally been able to start to see results from our work. And it's been really amazing to see the Lord's hand in guiding us to the people he has prepared for us to find. As i have told you guys before i think the ward here is divided into 2 areas, and our side of the area has maybe 10 members and the majority of the area have never been touched my missionaries here before. But this week has really been a miracle for us. Since the few members we have in our area haven't been much help we have dedicated almost all of our time this week to just contacting .So what we have been doing is just contacting everyone that we can in all these neighborhoods that have no members or old investigators or anything. And at first we struggled a ton to find people that wanted to listen to us. But in just this week alone we have found about 12 new investigators in a neighborhood that has never seen missionaries before, probably because it's SUPER far away, haha. But after weeks of struggling to find people this week we seemed to find all of the golden investigators that we have been looking for. The first one is Norma, who is a 23 year old single mom of a 5 year old. (who by the way is one of the coolest little kids ever) And we contacted her along with her mom and grandpa, but she was the only one able to go to church this Sunday, but it's been incredible because they have accepted EVERYTHING that we have taught them so far and they are progressing so quickly. It's truly just been a blessing to have found them. We also found a family through a contact we did in the street, her name is Karen and we taught her about the Book of Mormon and then taught the restauracion to her family the next day and they loved it! But unfortunately they weren't able to go to church this week. But really the people we have found this week have made all the searching worth it. I was thinking a lot about a scripture that is in Ether 12, and it says that we won't receive a witness until after the trial of our faith, and that God won't provide any miracle until after he sees the faith of His children. And I've noticed that time and time again on my mission. The miracles and blessings always come after a trial of our faith.

Well, I truly love this work. I know that there's nothing better. I love my Savior and I love you guys!!! Thanks for all your love and support and i hope you all have a GREATTT week!
