Transfers, Exchanges & Daily Life (week 58)

Dear all,
As usual it’s been a wonderful week here in Vecindario. Not too hot but plenty of wind! Things are going well, we are strengthening our relationship further with the members and as we do so they are helping us more with the work. Our mission president asked us to visit all the members by the end of August and teach them the restoration in five minutes. I love doing it and teaching these simple gospel truths because the spirit is so strong as we testify and help these members to remember how they felt when they heard this message for the first time.
Barbara is doing well, although she has a lot of trials right now in her life she is such an example to us because she keeps moving forward with faith and relying on God. She is the best. I feel so blessed to know her! We found some more new investigators this week, one of them is an ex jehovas witness! That means we are teaching two of them now! One of the nicest things to see is people who come to our church for the first time and can feel the difference in the level of spirituality there is there. This really is Christs true church!
Reading the Book of Mormon in five weeks is one of the best challenges I’ve ever been given, reading more thoroughly everyday day has helped me to realise the book speaks to me! One of the parts that impacted me most was in Jacob 5:21-23
“21 And it came to pass that the servant said unto his master: How comest thou hither to plant this MISSIONARY , or HERMANA LIDDICOTT? For behold, it was the poorest spot in all the land of the mission.
22 And the Lord of the vineyard said unto him: Counsel me not; I knew that it was a poor AREA; wherefore, I said unto thee, I have nourished HER this long time, and thou beholdest that SHE hath brought forth much fruit.
23 And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard said unto his servant: Look hither; behold I have planted another MISSIONARY of the MISSION also; and thou knowest that this AREA was poorer than the first. But, behold the MISSIONARY. I have nourished them this long time, and they hath brought forth much fruit; therefore, gather it, and lay it up against the season, that I may preserve it unto mine own self.”
Sometimes we wonder why the Lord places us in each of our circumstances but he puts us where we can bloom best, despite the surroundings. I liked it because it reminded me the Lord has a plan for each of our lives and we can grown in ways we never knew we needed to if we just grow where He plants us. We had exchanges with the hermanas from las palmas this week. It was great, they are such amazing missionaries and I’m grateful to have been able to serve with them. We didn’t get a new fridge yet but hopefully we will this week or next.
Have a great week,
Hermana Liddicott
