Semana (Week) 58: Just got Chilly...BRRRRrrrrrr

Divisions with Hermana R.
Whoo! This week got super cold! The cold came on all at once, one day burning in the sun, the next day it my thickest sweater, gloves, socks, and its been like that ever since.  It's also been raining.  Maybe it will get so cold that it will snow!!!! Who knows...I am getting super excited for Christmas!!!!!

Leaders from my generation.
This week we traveled to the Leadership Counsel in Guadalajara. It was really cool to see how many of the leaders now are from my generation and we were around 27 missionaries.  It's so cool to see the progress in all of them.   

We had an awesome lesson yesterday with Esmerelda!  She told us about all of her feelings and that she is so happy that we are helping her.  Yesterday, we started to teach her and her son how to read and write. I just loved seeing her smile as she was trying to write some letters from the alphabet.  We left that house with a lot of joy.  We have grown to love her so much.  We hope that in 3 weeks she will be baptized.  

My scripture that I have been meditating for this week is 2 Nephi 25:26.....
"y hablamos de Cristo, now regocijamos en Cristo, predicamos de Cristo, profetizamos do Cristo, y escribimos sefun nuestras profecias para que nuestros hijos sepan a que fuente han de acudir para la remision de sus pecados." (And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.)

Just a testimony builder to me that if we want our children to walk in the ways of righteousness, we need to do everything in Christ. Something that we see in the families that we teach, the change that happens when we center our focus in him.  They see the biggest difference in their lives, and its something that we have seen so much in Esmerelda, as she is going to church and teaching her children.
