COCKROACHES CAN FLY?!!?

Hola buenos días muchachos!!!

All I can say for this week is that I have been getting sleepless nights … so many lessons tend to end up going a little over but saw cool miracles from it ! Also the fact that a cockroach flew around in the middle of the night and it took forever trying to get it but hey it's all good. Also I may have slept in a bathtub again ahaha ….

I'm in the North Sacramento Zone and my zone is super fun and chill. For p-day we had fun playing kickball, volleyball, and the wedding shoe game which was hilarious. But I love our zone and got to be with the STL's and go on an exchange with them. They are super amazing and have lunch together often since we live super close to each other and walk over after prosiliting hours to talk. Which by the way… our apartment is super amazing and big! Were definitely spoiled to say the least.

MILAGROS!!!
☆ Found a Family to start teaching just by knocking on a random door and they wanted us to start teaching them more about Christ and our church. The dad came to church actually and stayed for the whole 2 hours and really liked it. He said he would want to invite his family next time!!
☆ Went to a referral that the elders sent us and found 2 people who wanted to hear more about the church and actually came one day to our church but said that the doors were closed (sacrament was going on). So we invited them next time to come and they were so happy !!
☆ Got a referral from missionaries in Washington state and set an appointment with a cool guy who wants to be baptized!!!!

Interesting Things That Happened:
♡ Got to celebrate my companion's 20th birthday by singing to her in Spanish and helping her light her Candle with a marshmallow on fire !!!
♡ Got a flat tire by running over a nail and took 3 trips to 2 different places to fix it and finally got it fixed by this really nice man who knew who we were and did it for free! #Schwabisthewaytogo #Pepboysisloco
♡So many members feed us sooooo much food!!! I forgot what it's like back in a Spanish area!!! Literally I only make one meal a day because of it. Sometimes I eat at 10pm if I want a small snack but I'm so blessed to be here hahaha
♡Finished our second Puzzle of the week
♡ There's a cool Jesús Guy that talks through the megaphone and spreads messages about Jesus Christ to people. We got to walk by him since our car got a nail in the tire!!

Spiritual thought: Covenants
In Alma 38:5-9 Shilon shared a message to his son of how he knows so many things of God. He simply responded that the spirit taught him of the knowledge he had gained because he was born of God(baptized) therefore he knew the joy, peace, and comfort God gives to people if we are obedient to commandments, covenants, and follow him.

Having that relationship with God through our covenants can lead us to spiritual power that can increase our understanding of truth and give us blessings that are available to us if we keep pressing forward in the way of Christ. Taking action to make that bond between you and your Father is the greatest blessing/gift you will ever receive. With him you will not have to worry about the doubt or pains of the world that may come but be strengthened through the atonement or grace of Christ and God.

I know I'm lucky to have made covenants and have worked hard to try to live up to them everyday as I desire to know what the will of God is for me personally. I know that my Father loves me and I can feel his love through keeping my end of the promise I made to him. I know that God is proud of who I have become and also you too. Because he knows our needs and our desires. He will never let us go even if we make mistakes, he will always want to extend help for you.

Scripture: Alma 38: 5-9
5 And now my son, Shiblon, I would that ye should remember, that as much as ye shall put your trust in God even so much ye shall be delivered out of your trials, and your troubles, and your afflictions, and ye shall be lifted up at the last day.
6 Now, my son, I would not that ye should think that I know these things of myself, but it is the Spirit of God which is in me which maketh these things known unto me; for if I had not been born of God I should not have known these things.
7 But behold, the Lord in his great mercy sent his angel to declare unto me that I must stop the work of destruction among his people; yea, and I have seen an angel face to face, and he spake with me, and his voice was as thunder, and it shook the whole earth.
8 And it came to pass that I was three days and three nights in the most bitter pain and anguish of soul; and never, until I did cry out unto the Lord Jesus Christ for mercy, did I receive a remission of my sins. But behold, I did cry unto him and I did find peace to my soul.
9 And now, my son, I have told you this that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn of me that there is no other way or means whereby man can be saved, only in and through Christ. Behold, he is the life and the light of the world. Behold, he is the word of truth and righteousness.
