Well if you want to know my highlight of the week, it was that I bought new Birkenstocks. HEHE. Just kidding, I think I just have shopper's high at the moment. BUT this week did have a lot of good highs! We started the week off with meeting with Bruder Scherer and had a really good lesson about becoming new through Jesus Christ's Atonement. We watched the video "The Piano" with him and he realized some really cool symbolism that I had never even thought of before. So go watch it and see if you notice anything and think about how Christ makes you new!!
We got to meet with Schwester Bösebeck and can I just say that she is the sweetest lady ever!! She is really soft spoken, but when she puts in her comments she brings the Spirit really strongly. The people that I get to meet are the best. Speaking of which we met with Franyeli again this week and she. is. amazing. She basically led our lesson, but in the best way possible. She bore her sweet broken English testimony and I felt the Spirit SO strongly. She has one of the strongest testimonies that I have ever heard and she is such an example to me. She is SO ready to be baptized this Saturday! The Gomez family has been progressing really well and are on track to be baptized this week as well. Their willingness to follow God and do His will is a real testimony builder to me, they have so much faith. I am so excited for this weekend to see Fidel, Mildred and Franyeli take a step closer to Christ!
We got to do service this week and it was super fun! We got asked to clean some walls because the families little boy decided he wanted to be an artist, so we said of course! Sister Jentzsch came out holding toothbrushes and toilet bowl brushes. So people were passing by on the street just looking at us when we were scrubbing a house with some toilet brushes..life of a missionary is precious:') The next morning we got the opportunity to go to Berlin for a Sisters Conference and it was SWEET. We got to talk a lot about more 'regular' life things as well as spiritual things pertaining to the mission. It was really awesome. Plus it was so much fun to see all of my favorite sisters ever!!
I have been reading in the Book of Mormon about the Atonement of Jesus Christ recently and it amazes me every single time I think about His sacrifice. I know that Jesus Christ died for us!! I know that He knows us perfectly and He feels what we feel perfectly. He knows how to help us perfectly. He knows perfectly because He is perfect. I have seen the power of the Atonement work in the life of my friend's lives and even more so in my life. I invite you all to study the Atonement and Christ's perfect love for us and let it take part in your life!
