Mexico City - Week #56

hey all,

i hope everyone is doing alright! this last week has been very good. lots of work which is awesome. time flys when there is work. so last p day an hno from a different stake called us with a reference of his amiga diana. he told us that her mom is suffering from some type of chronical cancer and the doctors had given here days to live. so we called diana and put a cita with her for this last saturday night. so saturday came along and we went to contact diana. she opened the door and seemed really pleased to see us. she guided us into a room where her sick mother and the rest of her entire family was waiting. there were around 30 people including all of the brothers, sisters, aunts uncles, cousins, and so. so as my companion elder barnett, and i entered into the room we immediately started como comenzar ensenar. we introduced ourselves and what church we were part of and they could all be blessed by what God has to offer them. not much time passed before we explained about blessings to them. as soon as we started explaining about them, they asked us to bless Fransisca, the chronically sick mother. my companion anointed her and i sealed the anointing. everyone was crying as we gave the blessing including us. but there was a sense of deep peace that we could all feel. as i finished the blessing, we informed the rest of the family of blessings of consuelo and 1 after another they asked for them. after about an hour passed by we had given 11 blessings of strength comfort and assurity. it was the most humbling experience i have ever had during this mission. although we just felt completly drained when we got home that night, we were still overcome with the Holy Spirit. i am so grateful to have been apart of that experience with this family. actually, they invited us back this coming saturday to teach them all. we will be teaching about the plan of salvation. God´s plan for every one of us. the experience we had that saturday night was one i will remember for the rest of my life. Heavenly Father has blessed us with a lot of work in this area and im so grateful for it. keep working and keep trying to become more and more like Christ. He is the only way back to our eternal home. i love you guys and hope you have a great week! xoxo
