The previoous week we had a meeting for the trainees and in it President Hall talked about how if we didn't have a testimony of Joseph Smith then there was no point in preaching until we gained one. So Wednesday i decided i needed to gain this testimony for myself and i wont share the details but as of right now i know without a doubt that joseph smith was a prophet of god. I encourage if your testimony isnt very strong or you dont have a testimony of the restauration then i encourage you to study and find one through prayer because it is an experience that will change your life forever.
So funny thing many people in Mexico are very superstitious and well it was Friday the 13th which is supposed to be a sketchy day right? HA it was one of the best days for me since i have been on my mission! We had lessons galor and tons of spiritual experiences together and cake!!!!! Its always a good day when you have cake right?!
And now to discuss my title as to why i hate valentines day!!! No se porque pero its always a day of terrible luck for me. And it proved to continue on to my mission as well. I had 8 accidents/incidents that happened in this day so many that my campanion has started to write them done for every day and this was her favorite so far haha. It started with me dropping my agenda which isnt a beg deal but it broke my favorite pen in half! Then as we were walking we pass by this stand with all glass tanks for fish and animals maybe even for small children who knows and i literally almost killed the whole stand of glass. As we were walking my shoe flies off and goes a good 10 feet, I tripped and hit a tree, I rubbed up against a painted tree wearing black clothing, had a dog chase me down the street, as im eating an orange the juice drips down all the way into my sleeve of my coat and my arm stuck to my coat the rest of the day, and as we are visiting a family in the ward the Hermano tells me i have a talk in the ward for tomorrow morning.
So if that wasnt bad enough Sunday comes and i give my talk about the holy ghost and i wast super nervous because its in spanish and i totally dont speak spanish and so i get done and my companion tells me how good it was and that it was clear. Then later on in the day a lady starts making fun of me for how many pauses and ums i said rude right!? so that really made me feel good. And it was like an adult not a kid an adult well into her years.
Tomorrow is hermana quispes birthday so i bought her a superman sweatshirt becasue she has wanted one for forever and took her to lunch to KFC today and she had a blast and is having an awesome birthday! and well thats pretty much all!
Have a great week and be kind to one another!
