50 And I said unto them: If God had commanded me to do all things I could do them. If he should command me that I should say unto this water, be thou earth, it should be earth; and if I should say it, it would be done.
51 And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of men, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?
-1 Nephi 17: 50-51

Hard Week but Lots of Hope for the Future

So this week we did a lot of work, and we had a lot of miracles! We have found a lot of people to teach! We actually had done more work this week than we had in along time, and, well, in the end no one was at church! Urgh! It's so frustrating when this happens! I was really frustrated during Sacrament meeting and actually wound up having a mini-battle with my emotions.  After the meeting I came to the conclusion that Heavenly Father is really just testing us to see how diligent we really are... soo this week I´ll have to fight harder for my brothers and sisters and well I can see a bright light for the future!
This week we also had a great miracle! We went to the temple, and we got there like really early! I mean 4 hours before our session to study. So it's 11 o'clock (our session is at 12) and Elder looks in his wallet looks at me sadly and says, "Elder, I left my recommend at home." I was like no way! Needless to say we were real sad! So we were about to leave and Elder Richins needed to use the bathroom.  I was like, "Well, ok..." so we went to the Church building next door.  He went to the bathroom, and I just sat down trying not to cry in front of him.  I just started to pray - I prayed for anything to happen so that we could go to the 12 o´clock session. (I started a little crazy like asking for me to be teleported there and back or anything!) And while I prayed, I knew that it was going to work out... so then I prayed for the inspiration to do what needed to be done to get there.  I felt we should call President because he was going to be there for a wedding.  He didn´t answer. Elder just wanted to go home but the thought of going home was just ridiculous to me, so I said, "Let's call again!"  He called, no answer again.  So we waited, and I prayed again and our phone started to ring! It was president, but I don't think he realized he had called us because we said, "Hello?" and no one answered. We walked around the back, and there was President! He said he should´ve left 10 min ago, but that he didn´t get his keys from his wife and that he actually shouldn´t have even been there... that he should´ve been there the next day! Anyway we got in and had a great session full of inspiration and Heavenly Father giving us hope for the future!

I love my Heavenly Father and He hears and answers our prayers! I promise as a representative of our Savior that if our faith is strong enough, it can be a power unlike any other to call on the powers of Heaven! In the name of the Jesus Christ amén!

I love Y'all!

It says "Establishment of Zion in South America" or something like that - haha

I also met Sis Knox from the stake (Murfreesboro) - she´s in the mission next to mine!
