Well, not much time at all to type a good email out , but just wanted to report that I am still in Rio Bravo with Elder Chacin! I am way excited to spend another with him! He is a great missionary and has really become one of my very good friends. I am learning so much and am having a blast seeing Laredo grow!
Not much to say about this week unfortunately. Kind of the same old same old, but it's all very good!
One super cool experience we had this past week was contacting a home where a son there is special needs. He can only make sounds and can't speak very much at all, but his actions and experience we had with him spoke much louder than any words every could. After greeting him and asking him if anyone else was there, he went to go and grab a parent which happened to be very catholic and didn't want anything to do with us. It was amazing though because the son knew exactly who we were and why we were there. He got way happy and his face lit up when we testified, and I know without a doubt that he knows what we were saying was true. His mother rejected us still though and you could see the frustration he had when she turned us away. I know that our Father in Heaven sent him there to help that family, and hopefully someday through his good influence the rest of his family will accept the true gospel. This experience was just such a great testimony to me of the truthfulness of this church and how loving and just our father in heaven is. I know without a doubt that people like him are truly heirs of the celestial kingdom and that they are only here to gain a body and help the rest of us out to return home to the God who gave us life.
That's all for now. Love y'all so much and hope everyone is enjoying their fall. I can't wait to hear the prophet and apostles here at general conference. I know that their words are the most beneficial for us at this time and if followed we will be strengthened tremendously.
