I think that one of the fun things about teaching is that there is always something new to learn. What do ya’ll think about me being a Spanish teacher as well, or an english teacher? The Lord has blessed me with the Gift of tongues and I want to keep on using this gift to help lots and lots of people. This past week was really amazing, and way too short. Hermana Zabala and I had three days to work in the temple and we worked in every part that we could!!! We even got permision to do baptisms. It is hard to explain well enough in any language how I felt in the temple. I really like what the daughter of family Nuñez said when I asked her what the temple is for her when we were teaching and preparing them to enter the temple. She Said “The temple is our house” She hadn’t even been to a temple before and understood very well that the temple is the house of our Heavenly father and so it is also our House because we are his children. It was so much fun we pretty much only left the temple to eat and sleep. We definitely went there to work!! We also had fun playing in the rain with Hermana Coca and a few of the other members!! It was so much fun, expecially because there was a meeting for the leaders of the mission going on at the same time, so they were inside looking at us like, “What in the world are these Hermanas doing?” we were having fun splashing in puddles with our members. And yes the mission president was watching as well. Coca invited him to play with us, but sadly he couldn’t. I really do love the temple and I love the strength that comes from doing the Lord’s work inside and outside of the temple. At the end of the day we are tired and I have to fight the urge to lay on the floor during nightly planning, but it is the best feeling in the world knowing that you are doing the Lord’s work. We also had some amazing lessons when we were in Artigas, we are trying to focus on working with members more and one day we acomplished having a member in each lesson. Really when the members share their testimony it makes a great difference because they can relate better with the people here and there is an amazing spirit about the lesson. To top an amazing week off we may have a baptism this week, I will have to let ya’ll know how it turns out.
