Que tal, buey?! This is what our district ALWAYS says. buey really means ox, but it´s slang for like ‘dude’… Second, HOLY SMOKES does Heavenly Father love us! Like seriously…okay. familia, i want you to watch “Earthly father, heavenly father” video. es muyyy bueyno., HELLO!!! Ah. This week has been craaaazy amazing. (hehe…buey…)
okay so they have nutella here. HALLELUJAH. basically have a nutella/peanut butter sandwich every day. just kidding, i wouldn´t do that to myself. but they are fantastic! okay so i am still figuring out how to collect all my thoughts and make this a coherent email, so for now i am just going to write stuff for ONLY nuestra familia right now 🙂
Right now i am trying to finish the BOM in spanish! 🙂 I was hoping to finish it before i leave the mtc…but that might take a miracle. we´ll see! 🙂
Sometimes at meals i sit with the natives so i can practice my spanish better. they are so intimidating. haha
It´s a lot harder for me to read the scriptures in english outloud. spanish is a lot easier. and i like the way it sounds soo much more. Like, now when i read the scriptures for personal study, i only use spanish ones because it sounds so much nicer. I also only pray in spanish now! for class, for companionship prayers and for my personal prayers 🙂 I started THAT like last week though.
Elder Holland talked and BOY was it FANTASTIC. I never want to stop being a missionary. ever. Let me give you some quotes I wrote down from his talk:
It is a great time to be alive and to be a missionary.” ”You´ve gotta be the best missionaries we´ve ever had. Because no one has ever been faced with the things we are faced with now.” ”I command you to come home with at lease ONE convert and IT BETTER BE YOU.” ”Everything I cherish in this world, I have because of this church…almost everything that I have, I look back and see it all strated with that call.” ”God´s chosen young people since the beginning of time. And he´s chosen you¨” ”You have this in the very marrow of your being. And at leaset we can count on YOU coming back converted.” ”You are going to have the gospel so powerfully and so firmly in your soul, that you are going to astonish people.”
Something i am learning to do is TRUST the Lord no matter how nervous i may be.
now for my random spiritual thoughts:
“Because Jesus walked a long, lonely path utterly alone, we do not have to.” -Jeffrey R. Holland. Soak that in for a minute.
I read Ether 12:27 and felt SO STRONGLY that i needed to share it with you and everyone! Look at the verbs only and see how we should live.
Also look at the action words in Omni 1:26. AND DO THOSE THINGS. Gosh i love that scripture
This quote is super cool: “If you really want to do something, no one can stop you. If you really don´t want to do something, no one can help you.” I think anyone and everyone should hear that!
“No, God does not need us to love Him, but Oh, how we need God to love us.”- Dieter F. Uchtdorf.
Okay, news! I was made a sister missionary trainer!! I am bascially just accountable for how all the sisters are doing in our branch. So i, along with my companions, have to get to know everyone and check up on them and stuff which is pretty cool!
Okay, so i am sorry this is so unorganized, but i will be better. my thoughts have been scattered and i had sooo many thoughts.
oKAY! tata for now! i will keep you updated more next week. I love you all so much and CAN´T wait to hear from you next week!!! 🙂 Te quiero muchisimo!!!
con todo mi corazon,
Hermana Dunne 🙂
pps- I have memorized these things….(not copying them down! seriously straight from mi mente!!!):
Seguirá el ejemplo de Jesucristo, al ser bautizado por alguien que poseea la autoridad del sacerdocio de dios?
Vi una columna de luz mas brillante que el sol directament arriba de mi cabeza. Y esta luz gradualmente decendio hasta descansar sobre mi. Al reposar sobre mi, la luz, vi en el aire, arriba de mi, a dos personajes cuyo fulgor y gloria no admiten descripcion. Uno de ellos me hablo, llamandome por mi nombre, y dijo, señalando al otro, “Este es mi hijo amado, Escúchalo.”
Bien hecho, ehhhh?? hehe i am very proud of that! okay adios! te quiero mucho!!
