This week was full of work, work, and more work! We had days were we were teaching every hour nonstop, and days where no one was home. This week we were able to feel every emotion under the sun, but my favorite moment was when Hna. García said, "me encanta ser misionera!" (I love being a missionary!) She didn't think a mission could be as fun as it is. Which is so true: Missionary work is AMAZING and so much fun! The comment got me to thinking as to why she would say such a truth, and we came to the conclusion that it's fun doing the right thing and working for the Lord. Yes, there are hard days without much success, but every day is a miracle within itself. It's humbling to know that the Lord will lead us to the people who are ready to progress, but only if we give him all our heart, might, mind and strength. As one of my past leaders said, we must do everything, "con TODO su corazón!" (with all your heart!).

This past week, I've been reading a talk given by Elder Lawrence Corbridge, "El Cuarto Misionero" (The fourth missionary) It's an amazing talk about how we can learn to consecrate our service as missionaries, changing other's lives and ours throughout our missionary service. From what I have learned, everything is based on our desires to serve. If we serve, we must do it with all our heart, being willing to submit ourselves to the Lord's will with no regrets. The Lord wants us to give our hearts to Him so that He can bless us in ways we can't even imagine. I invite you all to really think about how you can give your heart to our Heavenly Father. If you do so, you will find that He will give you a heart that is like His, a heart that is full of faith, hope, charity, and everything else we aspire to be in this life and in the life to come.
I love you!
