This week was pretty much de diez [must mean 10 out of 10??]! Maira and her mom Beatriz went to church again and are both preparing to get baptized on July 25th! They are so great. Maira is 13 and is already working on Personal Progress and even knows how to pray in English and always thanks God for her ¨cool hair.¨ haha. :)
Today we got to go on a hike to a hill called Media Luna, it was a lot more intense than we were expecting but it was absolutely beautiful! Before leaving civilization a stray dog (Hermana Ostler fondly named it Llama) decided to follow us--it made it all the way up the mountain and back, waited for us as we ate and studied, and I think its still waiting for us outside the cyber where we are using the computers, haha.
Please keep family Ruíz in your prayers.
What else has happened....nothing too exciting. I am learning lots and loving lots. Something beautiful about the mission is that I was happy before the mission but the happiness I feel now as a missionary is different. It's more sweet and pure because it is focused on the happiness of others. I know this happiness comes from the Lord's Spirit and that every person can find it when they focus on serving others and doing God's will instead of their own. I know the message I am sharing is true and that it blesses the lives of the people it touches.
I love you all very much! Have a great week!!!
