Feliz Año Nuevo!!

After skyping with you last week we had dinner with Yoana! After dinner, it felt good to hit the streets again after Christmas and having so many things going on this week. We visited our investigator Yuriamy. We went to go pick her up but she wasn’t feeling good, so we came back later to just check on her. She appreciated our concern as she let us in her home and we talked for a good while. We left the home with a prayer that she would feel better. Our message is that Christ will comfort us when we must wait in distress for the Savior’s promised relief that He knows, from experience, how to heal and help us. The Book of Mormon gives us the certain assurance of His power to comfort. And faith in that power will give us patience as we pray and work and wait for help. I like visiting people and let them know that Christ loves and cares! I always feel as the Lord is pleased when we take care of the sick, afflicted and lonely. Also, we always pray on ways how we could help our less active members. Speaking of which, the zone leaders gave us a list of less active members and so we began visiting and inviting them to return to church. I testify that there is nothing more important than bringing people back to church, nurture and strengthen those that somehow have been lost.

Also, we also had a lesson with a man from Nigeria and I just love sharing the message about Jose Smith, the need and importance of the restoration. Again, I bore my testimony to this man about the sacred priesthood, our prophet Joseph Smith and our living prophet Thomas S. Monson. I have witnessed how a sweet, pure and simple testimony can bring the Spirit into our discussions. I have also come to realize the importance of teaching together, testifying and complementing each other’s thoughts! It’s wonderful to be part of this great work and I just love it! That being said, I love to have the opportunity to share this knowledge with everyone we come in contact!!

También! Para que sepan la foto mia es cuando estaba preparando una pizza para las navidades. Es verdad, Hermana Volpe prepara pizza y pasta casi todos los dias. Eso es super divertido! Recuerden que ella es de Italia. Jajajha. 

Hasta la proxima semana….Muchos abrazos y besitos.
