Wowee folks! The weeks are flying and the mission is great. Sister Beutler and I are working hard and seeing results! There is seriously nothing better. One of my favorite moments from this week was in a lesson with Mayra and Jorge (married couple with a baby). We taught them the Word of Wisdom which is the “health guide” that Heavenly Father has given us for this time. It includes not consuming alcohol, tobacco, drugs, coffee, nor tea. Jorge was confused as to why “we cant drink tea.” We were about to respond when Mayra turned to him and said simply, “it’s because it is a commandment from God. That’s why!” One of the best moments. I love Mayra and I know she will be baptized soon, she is just a little apprehensive.
We also experienced another miracle with the hot water. This Tuesday, Sister Beutler’s first day, the water came out totally freezing. After a few days the landlord came and looked at the water heater. He changed the battery, opened the machine, and couldn’t figure out the problem. Well, not until his wife picked up the gas tank and said “There’s no gas!!!!” How embarrassing! haha. Our excuse is that the dial on the tank was broken and said that it was still mostly full. Anyway, a quick exchange of tanks and we are back on track with hot water and happiness.
The mission really is the best place to be. Some people get stressed out, but I have come to learn that what happens happens. As we try our best and work like literal machines we will see success no matter if it is what we wanted or not.
