Week 69- Adiós Guatemala!

Buenas Tardes Mis Queridos Amigos, 

What an insane week it has been! Seriously I dont think there has ever been a week that has gone by faster than this one!
Tuesday I had my Exit Interview with President Smith which was so special and sacred to me. But we basically were in Xela all day long, which meant that we got to eat at Subway! ( It was so nice to eat a sandwich!)

Thursday We saw a miracle!! A family that we have been teaching had been having a really hard time with their house, and they were at the point where they only had a few more days to live there and then they were going to be put out on the streets. For quite some time we have been praying with them to find a place to live and this week a guy bought their house for them and is giving them 1 more year to look for a new place!!! It was such a miracle and we cried tears of happiness with the mom. And that was one of the reasons why they didnt want to get baptized because they didn't know where they would be living..... but now they have a baptismal date for the 2 of January! :)
Friday we had a Conference with Elder Ochoa of the Seventy. It was so powerful and we say some crazy miracles! That guy is SO inspired! I would tell you all about it but that would take way to long!
Yesterday I think that Heavenly Father wanted to leave me with a lasting impression of Momos so there wasn't water or lights all day long, and i have a million flea bites..... yep, that about sums up the mission problems for ya!
The truth is that I have so many things to write, but there isnt enough time. I guess I´ll just get to the most important part;
I feel so eternally grateful to be a member of this church and to have made the decision to serve a mission. I have been able to see the Lord´s hand in work in the lives of so many people, including my own. I have come to know the Christ really does live, that He personally knows every single one of us, and that the Atonement takes care of everything. One of the biggest lessons that I have learned is that Charity Never Faileth. When things arent going right, when we feel discouraged, when we arent feeling the Spirit like we should, we need to pray for charity and as we do so we will  we will feel more of Heavenly Fathers love for us and a desire that others have that same feeling. We will embark in the service of our fellow men }, which puts us at the service of our God. A simple act of charity and a prayer will cure everything. I am grateful for my Savior

 and the love that he has for me and for everyone of his brothers and sisters. I´m grateful for the restoration of the gospel of Christ and for the plan of Salvation, and I am grateful for the Book of Mormon, which testifies of the truthfulness of these things.
Thank you for all of your love and support fover these past 18 months. I´ll see you soon.
Que Dios les bendiga,
