saludos from... SAN ISIDRO ICA!! yes the gringa duo continues their legacy!

The sun is bright in Ica and the work continues to march forward. This was a good week. We proved satan that he could attack from every angle but we were there to fight back with dilligence and planning. Our investigators with baptismal dates all had family problems this week and we had many of our origanly scheduled lessons with them fall through. BUt we were still able to find them! Wooooooo even though it did mean having them as backup plans and stopping by their house and calling them in any free minute. But two of our investigatores with baptismal dates, jenny and gino were in the end able to make it to the chapel! wooo.  This week we were also able to find two families! Well able to complete 2 families thorugh find 2 non member husbands of less active sisters. Theres the moment I do l,ove alot in the mission, when a father prays with his wife and children all around him for the first time. The spirit is always so strong and testifies to me that really the gospel blesses FAMILIES. Families are forever, Ive never know is with so much surety. The gospel is incredible and really what a blessing it is to see it change lives everyday. I know that this is the work of the Lord and that we are only called as miniscule instruments to labor, He is the one that performs the miracles and causes conversion. He is my savior, and I love Him for all the tender mercies he allowed me to be a witness of.

LOve you all and remember to send me pictures!

In our area  this week we were able to see great miracles as many members were willing to accompany us and give us refferals of their friends. In particular theres one lesson that stands out. On Tuesday we went to visit our investigator whose getting baptized in a few weeks, Jenny, and a couple from our ward, Jorge and Marlene accompanied us. They really made her feel so welcomed, and it was like instantly they were best frineds and had know each other for a long time. They were also able to realte to her well, sharing their similar experiences as converts and doubts. It really made teaching the plan of salvation less of a lesson, and more of just a connection of doctrine to her needs. Really there is a great difference when the members and us missionaries work together and teach together. The spirit testifies and really lasting friendships and bonds are formed between members and investigators. My favorite part at the end of the lesson was that the brother ended up gifting his hymn book to hermana jenny, it really was a touching moment and a remarkable lesson. 

This week are transfer. Hna Lawrence and I are pretty sure well stay together but well see. Theres alot of work to keep up in San Isidro!

Hello familia y amigos.

Its is strange once again to me that August is winter and the coldest month here. The sun is HOT and the nights are freezing. Thats the weather in Ica in a nutshell.

 Anyways this week was difficult in the sense that we had to find a way to work around not being in our area 2 whole days. But neverthe less we were able to see many miracles and tender mercies. We were able to find a new family this week, from the referral of a less active member. Theyre Walter and Ruth, and they know our bishop and are just full of energy and curiosity for the gospel. We also found jenny, a sister who is the friend of a member, who had been to church a bunch of times but we could never find her to teach. But we found her this week, when one of our lessons fell thorugh and we felt like we should pass by her house. SHes great and immmediatly asked us how she could get baptized! She has a baptismal date for september 3rd and were so excited to keep working with her. ANyways this sunday 3 less active members who weve been teaching for the last couple of weeks, who havent been to church in months, came to church!!!! We were so excited, the lord really has blessed us this week, and were looking forward to the miracles this week.

Love you all!

SUN, SUN, SUN in ICA!!!!!!!




In my personal study this morining I found this scripture that I believe fits Ica very well. Its in 3Nefi12:45That ye may be the children of your Father who is in heaven;  for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good.

Yup and the sun did shine on all this week in Ica. The sun was hot and the nights were cold, but the labor of the Lord continued in full force. THis week was great in our area, mostly becauyse we were able to stay positive. I thiknk our positvity was summed up on sunday when we walked from 2pm to 7pm and kept on smiling and were able to contact alot of people.BUt we were able to see a good balance in our work this week, asmany of our investagators are now progressing! The lords work is moving quickly here in san isidro and it is a blessing to be a small part of it.

love you all
