Hermana Leavitt & Hermana De Aquino
Well, another week has gone by fast. You´d think it would start to feel normal, but it doesn´t. This week we had a pretty cool experience that I wanted to share with you guys.
So on Saturday we needed to go visit a family because we had an appointment, but it´s about 20-30 minutes and we have to take two transports, and they weren´t answering their phone. My companion wasn´t sure if we should go or not, because they always answer when they´re home, but we decided we felt peace and headed out. When we knocked on the door, well, the young couple wasn´t home, but their parents were and they allowed us to share something with them. After talking for a little while, we learned that they were members from another ward nearby in Tuxtla, but that they haven´t been active for some years. And I´ll be honest, I had no clue what we could share with them. But my compaion opened up to 3 Nephi 11 and we read a little bit from the beginning of the chapter. After sharing a message with them, the hermano shared with us (the both of them with tears in their eyes) that he could feel the spirit, and by hearing us, he wanted to make some changes and return to the church.
This small moment with this couple is really on of many that are priceless, I don´t have the words to explain it. I´m so grateful to be able to be part of this while here in Tuxlta. But we don´t have to be a full time missionary to be able to have these moments, we just have to allow the spirit to guide us. I know that Heavenly Father loves us, and he has a plan perfect for all of us.
I love you guys, and I hope that you too can do the little things to allow the spirit into your lives. Honestly, it´s difficult, sometimes we can feel His guidance, and then we don´t know what to do next, but this is where trusting in Him, and trusting in those around us comes in. If we do our part, He won´t let us fail. I know this to be true.
Love, Hermana Leavitt
