November 7, 2016 - Becoming Like Christ

What an amazing week!!!! I hope I have enough time to write about it all, because it truly was incredible! :)

First, for Halloween we were told to come home early and stay at home because it was too dangerous to be out, so we came home and decided to blast the AC in our bedroom and make it super cold and wear sweats and make hot chocolate so that it felt like winter and Halloween back home. It was super fun. :) haha :) 

And then, J. is such a huge miracle!!!! We taught her the Word of Wisdom this week and she is super addicted to coffee so she was super nervous when we first taught it and almost cried when she handed us the coffee she had, but after a couple days and lots of encouragement, she found the strength to do it and as of right now she's coffee free! She also went with us to a baptism this saturday and she loved it and is super excited for her baptism this week! We're sooo excited!!!! :) 

Also, we met so many people this week that are super interested and that want to be baptized! We met someone named Lily and we invited her to be baptized in the first lesson and she was so excited and said yes! When we left we left her with a chapter in the Book of Mormon to read and the next day she texted us and said she read it and wanted us to give her another chapter to read. She is wonderful and so prepared!

Then on Saturday we had a ward service project doing yard work for a Nursing Home. It was so fun being with the members! I just love them so so very much!!! 

And to answer your questions...... here it usually downpours for like 30 min just about every day now. But sometimes it's only sprinkling.... it just depends on the week I suppose. :) Also, when Puerto Ricans go on vacation (which is very rare) they usually go to Florida, but if you're a member, you usually go to Utah. 

Thank you soooooooooooooooooooo much for signing me up for classes!!! You are wonderful!!! Thank you!!!! The schedule looks great! Thank you so much! 

I read something this week that I absolutely fell in love with. It's an article called "The Perfect Lie". A lot of times we have this idea in mind: Me+More=Christ-like. But really, that's what Satan wants us to believe. It's a trap. It's only going to lead us to disappoinment and failure. But if we change it a little bit, we have what it's supposed to be: Me+Christ=More. Yes our goal is to become more Christ-like, but He doesn't expect us to do it alone. He will be with us every step of the way and we will be able to accomplish so much more with Him then we ever could alone. I know that with Christ, we can be so much more and we can reach our full potential. 

I love you all so so very much and hope you have an absolutely wonderful week!!! LOVE YOU!!!!! :)
