so this week has been amazing! A couple hiccups but hey that's life, right?
So recently I've been trying to increase my faith in the Lord. And I knew for a fact that one of the best opportunities we have to increase our faith is through our trials. So Saturday night I prayed, and I pleaded with my Heavenly Father to send me a trial. To give me something in my life that will help me grow my faith and relationship with Him and my Savior Jesus Christ. That night I woke up in the middle of the night with a suuuper bad pain in my left knee. In the morning I called the mission nurse and she made me an appointment to see the doctor the next day. So today I went to the doctor and he asked me about my knee pain, then felt around my knee and had me bend it and twist and what not. Well at one point during this bending and lovely stuff I felt as if he broke my knee. I bursted into ugly crying and my companion grabbed my hand and told me it would all be okay. Well he told me it seems as if I have a very inflamed meniscus. Depending on the results of the MRI and XRAYs we had done today is whether or not I have to have surgery. I'm on bed rest and after bed rest I can't walk hardly at all. But I know that the Lord is guiding me and taking care of me through this.
So this week we should have our first baptism together! We have been teaching a woman whose future husband is a member. They've been working on getting married so we decided to jump in and give them some help! This week they should be able to finally tie the knot and she can be baptized the following day!!! We are so excited! And its so amazing to see how the hand of The Lord has been helping us in this whole process!
So we have also been teaching a man who is 94 years old!!!!! We had an amazing lesson with him the other day. At first he just laughed at us when we talked about how he needed to be baptized so he can live eternally with God. But then I mentioned his wife who had passed away, and if he wanted to able to live with her forever after this life. He began to cry and talk about her and his mom who had passed away. I extended a baptismal date to him for the 8th of February and he accepted... although the next day he didn't remember of it. haahhahahahaaha BUT he has a desire to learn and to grow in the gospel so I know that if he doesn't get baptized here he def will in the next life.
This is Elder A-----!! He's my "hijito" my son in the zone. And my compi is his sister! He's amazing. I feel like I've known him my whole life. We are in the same district and have really bonded a ton!
