This week was pretty usual. We had p-day last week when I wrote to you and now it is p-day otra vez. On Monday we had a family home evening with a menos- activo which was fun and we have these family home evenings a lot. People really love them. They are a great way to invite not only your own family, but others to have a fun time and learn principles of the gospel. I was reading a conference talk or a discurso in a liahona or something like that that talked about how important the family home evenings are and how they are the way that we teach in the home. We have schools to teach us math, English, science, etc. but the home is where we learn respect, love, integrity, etc. It is true, with so many homes that don´t have a good base, if the family doesn´t have the confianza, it reflects in other things such as in school or work or words or actions. The home is so important.
On Tuesday we had the interviews with President and Hermana Vasquez which were great. I liked the things that I learned from them about the ways we can talk to people and find nuevas personas. I told him about how you wanted to find his daughter in temple square and that he would send you something through facebook. Presidente y Hermana Vasquez are so cute. They gave us water candy that we could enjoy and share with others. We were the last people in the capilla con ellos so they took us home. Past our curfew but, really, it was the president. ;)
I got sick on Wednesday which I didn´t like. But Thursday was the Dia de Independencia for El Salvador so there was a giant parade in the middle of San Miguel on the Avenida Roosevelt. The whole street was packed with people and no one was in their houses because they were at the 8 hour parade. It was cute though. There were schools that performed and people in the dance typical. You really couldn’t move through the people it was so packed.
I got to reflect on the Atonement this week and that really, Jesus loves us SO MUCH! He has gone through everything that we have to, and will have to go through. He knows what the problemas feel like and that there are always things that can discourage us, but when we realize that he knows how we feel, we can lean on him. We don´t have to go through anything alone because we have a teammate, a friend, really, our best friend, who knows the exact measurement of our problem and he will comfort us. I love Jesus.
And don´t forget to watch Women´s Conference this week? Is it this week? Pray for the speakers and remember to pray in your families. Pray in your fields. Pray in your bathrooms, and your closets.
I love you!!!!! And be good!
