Temporary or Permanent? (50)

Hello!

This week has been wonderful and so full of miracles! And absolutely
jam packed, it was sad to say goodbye to hermana Tang on Tuesday but I
know that she is serving where the Lord needs her and that her new
companion will help her so much! She is going to do a great work
starting the new Chinese branch in carabanchel! #PrayForTheChinos My
new companion Hermana Phillips is from California and she is
absolutely wonderful! (Photo attached) When we went to the temple on
Wednesday for preparation day they didn’t believe us that there had
really been transfers ahah! We have the same time in the mission and
so things are going swimmingly. She even sang God save the Queen with
me when it was the Queens birthday, I forget how old she is but
nonetheless it was her birthday. This week we have real transfers and
so we will see if we stay together or not.

We had lots of miracles this week. Elder Soares when he came for
mission tour talked a lot about the scripture in 2 Nefi 25:23 which
discusses how after all we do it is by grace we are saved. I can
definitely testify of that. He said we would just look at the miracles
and realise they were falling from the sky and this week that’s
literally what happened! Our new investigators literally just fell
from the sky. Some of them just came to church on Sunday and now we
have started to teach them! The lord really blesses us when we do all
we can do! So Hermana Phillips and I are trying to do all we can do
every day so that we can be saved by grace and really help to be a
blessing and not a burden to this wonderful area of San Sebastián de
los Reyes!

We made lots of new friends whilst we doorknocked this week. We had
some guy come up to us who though we were tax collectors. We explained
who we were and asked if we could stop by another day and share a
message, but he said right now was a good time. The Lord really
prepares people for us to teach when we make plans for the day and
then turn our Labours over to the Lord.

The elders had a baptism this past week as well, we do not have a font
here in San Sebastián so we had to do it in the swimming pool at a
members house. The baptism was for a man from Syria. It has been so
sweet to see the gospel change his life over the last six month. And
our investigator Doris came with us which just made her all the more
excited for her baptism later next month! The gospel is just a
wonderful thing!

I’m coming up to a year in the mission and I was thinking about what
I’ve learnt. Really I think I’ve come to recognise that Heavenly
Father loves and knows each and everyone if His precious, beloved
children. He knows our struggles and He knows how to help us if we
will only turn to Him. I am grateful for the trials I’ve had through
my life, in Romans it teaches us to glory in trials because trials
bring experience which in turn bring us patience and hope! I’m
grateful for this gospel and I know that it’s true!

Much love,

Hermana Liddicott
