Happy Valentine's Day!

This week was great. Last Monday after our zone meeting we came home and found that the door was wide open, someone broke into our house and stole stuff. So rude. So this week we lived with 2 other sister until we found a house. Overall a super crazy week but man we had some awesome lessons with our investigators.For reals though we are teaching a woman that is like 70 years old. Juana lives with her daughter and just recently her daughter and all her family were baptized except for her. Seriously though she goes to church every week and reads The Book of Mormon often. We had an awesome lessson with her, she told us that she feels like she is just in the way of everything,that she is just a hassle. That is when her grandson shared how he felt about her and the sweet lady just started crying. The Spirit was so strong and after that she accepted a date to be baptize. It was such a special lesson to me of the importance it is to express our love. Whether it be by just having patience or random expressions of love, it really does make all the difference. Charity is one of the biggest lessons that I have learned on my mission, seriously the only way that I can help my companions ovecome their weaknesses is by loving them. Love truley is the essence of The Gospel, charity comes when we accept people for how they are always giving them the benefit of the doubt. 
This week was so hard but I am grateful for these oppertunities to grow. The Savior lives and I know that I am not here to EARN heaven but rather LEARN it. 

Have a great week.
