WEEK #5 IN LIMA!!!!!!

Hola Familia and Friends!


This was a great week. We were able to see many of our investigators take the initiative and progress. Karen, Who has a baptismal date for the 5th of December has been reading the book of mormon regularly, praying ,and has now attended church twice. Its amazing to see how much her faith has strengthened since weve meet her, and I know she will only grow firmer and firmer in Christ. She was beyond happy to know that we have a living prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and she said theres nothing more shed want then to be able to meet him. Shes amazing, shes had a really difficult life, but she knows that God has a great purpose for her here on the earth. This week we were also able to help Juan and Joselyn get closer and closer to their marriage goals. They are an amazing family, and it was a truly miracle this sunday when their family, who are members, didnt show up because they were sick, but Juan and Joselyn did. I cant wait to see them one day dressed in white, being sealed in Gods temple.

This saturday, I had a new adventure to tackle. ROOM INSPECTIONS. haha So the day was spent traveling from one hermanas room to another, and checking every light, appliance, wall, floor, and emergency backpack. Quite an experience, but a constant reminder that cambios are this saturday, and its very probable that Hermana Martos leaves bc shes been in the area for 4 and a half months.

Anyways happy thanksgiving to all! I am very thankful for the opportunity I have this thursday to spend it in my favorite  place.. THE TEMPLE!! Anyways, I am thankful for my amazing family and all the support theyve given me thoughout the years. I am thankful for every trial and every hardship, God has given me because I know they have made me stronger in all things. I am thankful for the restoration for this glorious gospel in our days. I am thankful for the great sacrifice of my loving redeemer Christ, and I am thankful for my calling as a missionary and servant of the Lord. 
Thank You all.
Much Love,
Hermana Mostert.

Hola Familia and Friends,
May I begin by saying that is it through the trials and adversities that we come to know how strong we truly are. But it is also through those trials that we realize that the strength we find in difficult times, isnt our own, but comes from the Lord.

 This week my companion and I , aswell as many our investigators faced many trials. Our investigator Delia, who was to be baptize this past saturday recieved unpresidented opposition from her catholic father, who lives about 10 hours away. Satan attacked her from every angle this week and we did our best to help her strengthen her testimony and continue on the path to baptism. Many doubts came last minute and we decided alongside her that it was better for her to be more certain.

 This week we had the great opportunity as well to have the "Plan Rescate" activity with the CCM in our ward. The brand new missionaries came in a huge charter bus to our chapel, where they were pared with one missionary from our zone and a member and then were given a list of inactive members to visit. It was great to see the members eager to help out to visit the less active brothers and sisters in our ward. It was also inspiring to see the enthusiasm of these young missionaries, and it really sparked some energy that was begining to lessen in me. I was paired with the relief society president and her son leaves for his mission this tuesday, so I was able to comfort her somewhat, she reminded me alot of mom. Missionary moms are the strongest women, TE AMO MAMA!

Anyways, all else is going fine in Bolognesi. We are Working hard and slowing seeing the fruits of our labors. The Lord continues to bless us and I am infintly grateful.

Lots of Love.

Bolognesi wk 3; Peruvian kids go crazy on American Candy


Buenos dias Amigos and familia!!!

Greetings from Chorrillos, Lima! This week was an incredible week here in Bolognesi. Through many referrals from members we were able to find 6 new investigators: Andrea, Freddy, Amelia, Lucia, Hermina and Juan. But the biggest miracle was that we found Juan, the pareja (not married couple) of a daughter of a rescued sister. Together they told us that they wanted to get married as soon as possible in the simpliest way. Their disposition to follow the Lords commandments is astonishing. Juan and Joselyn just moved into our area and already have strong testimonies because they were previously recieving lessons from the Elders in San Gabriel. They have 2 cute, yet crazy kids and they are the funniest couple ever. Its crazy how we can laugh so hard with them and then feel the spirit so strongly as well.

This week we were also able to see our Investigator, Delia progress and grow stronger and stronger in her testimony, as she approaches her baptism this saturday. We taught her the 10 commandments and about tithing. She is so amazing, she told us that she wants to pay her tithing, not just to recieve the blessings but beacuse she knows its what the Lord recquires. We were also able to see the love and support of the members, as after church the Young Single Adults got together and filmed a video bearing their testimonies and expressing their love for her baptism.
This tuesday we also had our Mission Leadership meeting. Where all the Sister Leaders and Zone Leaders got together and discussed different topics of the mission and how we can help the mission improve to achieve our missionary objective. It was great and I learned so much! I also got to see Hna Ramirez and Hna Murillo! Then Sister McGinn (Presidents wife) and Sister Lunt (part of the married companionship that works in the office) made us sloppy joes and dirt a worms for desert (pudding, oreos and GUMMY WORMS). It was a great day.


This week, I also realized something very important..that American candy has a substancial amount of sugar that drives peruvian kids crazy. I gave a big bag of candy to the grandkids of one of the sisters who accompanies us and they went nuts!! haha They also arent used to sour candy, so they were all yelling ACIDO ACIDO and making faces haha but they loved it.
Anyways, this week we were truly blessed by the guidance and protection of the spirit in every moment. I know this church is true, that we are all children of our loving Heavenly Father and that Christ Lives.
Con Mucho Amor,
Hermana Mostert

Hola Familia and Friends!
This was another great week of walking, learning the area and finding new people to teach. We were also able to meet with active families this week and share with them the first vision to fuel their


missionary work fire! The families here are amazing. We were also thanks to the spirit working through us, able to put 3 baptismal dates with Delia, KAren and Kenjoy. They are all cvhosen children to reiceve this gospel. We also had the opportunity to have stake conference where the topic of Keeping the Sabbath day holy was emphaized, VERY strongly. I tesify that this commandment is one that keeps families i harmony and brings numerous blessings. I invite all to study the doctrine and keep the commandment.
Lots of Love,
Hermana Mostert.
