Dear Family and Friends,
Time seriously flies by so fast on a mission it is crazy! I can't believe I have already been out here 3 months! Where did the last three months go?
This week was a crazy busy week of finding people. We found 9 people! True we gave away 7 of them to other missionaries because they were either in a different area, spoke only Spanish (that was a lot of fun trying to get their information and figure out if they were interested), or were guys that we handed over to the Elders in our ward. Of the 2 we had left one we get to keep and the other named Arthur we are going to transition to the Elders as well.
Arthur is so cool and has a really neat testimony of God. He actually is former gang leader and a recovering drug addict. He said that he used to feel unsafe if he didn't have a weapon with him at all times; now he says God is his weapon and because he has given his heart and life to God and his family he feels safe wherever he goes because he knows he is being watched over! How cool is that! What's even cooler is that we met him at a small Chinese restaurant we were eating at because it is owned by members who live in Sister McDermott's last area.
There are too many miracles this week and so little time today so I will have to wrap it up for the week. Remember Heavenly Father is watching out for all of us and that we can always turn to him! If you haven't got a chance yet go to Mormon.org/becauseofhim and watch the new Mormon Message. It is mind blowing and we have spend the last two weeks promoting it because the church rented out the entire front page of youtube yesterday and had all the video's on there be about Christ! That is so cool and really amazing if you think about how much that cost. It just goes to show how important it is to let the world know about Jesus Christ and what his Atonement means for each of us individually!
Love you all so much!
