Capilla Abierta/Open House

Monday, July 17, 2017

So this week was a slow week we had a lot of citas that fell and so we did a lot of walking.  But we were able to find people who are prepared.

We are working right now with Abel.  Still he wants to get baptized but every time his fecha comes his girlfriend talks to him.  She's really catholic and he gets all confused.  Whenever we are with him he is really excited but when we leave, the enemy (girlfriend), attacks and he doesn't show up for the citas or answer his phone.  So we are gonna work hard with him so he can understand the difference between temporal happiness and eternal happiness.  He gives me headaches.  He is a child living alone.

We are also working with Mayra.  She is great.  She just always stays asleep instead of going to church.  But she is really sweet and has the desire.

We are also working still with the family from Venezuela, shout out to my buddy Maria Jose!! jaja

Also Norma y Ronaldiño.  They are great but they do not have a great sense of direction.  Literally they always get lost on the way to the church.  But we are gonna show them where it is today haha so hopefully they will come this Sunday.

Today was pday de hermanas.  It's really fun to be able to have a relationship with so many and get to know so many hermanas but a lot of the time i feel like I'm babysitting. hahah  Shout out to the Whatcott's. I think about you guys all the time and miss you.  I bet you're all huge jaja!

We had a capilla abierta/open house this Saturday in our ward.  This ward is AWESOME!!  They planned so well and there were a BUNCH of people who came it was super awesome!!  We have some news also thanks to this activity.

Well it's week 6, I cant believe it!!  I hope I get another transfer with my Hermana ñaupa.  She is awesome I love her, but I guess we will see next Tuesday!!!  But as for this week we are just gonna keep wrecking havic hajaja!!!

The mission is best not only because I grow but I get to see so many others grow. 

Love y'all

Mabel!

Monday, July 10, 2017

So this week we had multizonas so we didn't have many divisions or intercambios so you would think the week would be tranquilo no?  No.

The multizona was awesome!!  We are so motivated to have a baptism every week!!  So this week Mabel got baptized on Sunday morning and after confirmed!!

This week was so crazy but good!!  We did not have as much success as the last but it's okay bc that motivates us to do better.  Abel is gonna get baptized this week and we are still working with the family from Venezuela.

We had intercambios with Callao and I got to be with Hna Lizarbe.  She is so great!!  The cambios/transfer is going by way too fast!

My comp showed me something the other day that said God trusts us enough that he knows if we don't learn from following the commandments we will learn from falling down.  Well the translation isn't as beautiful. But basically God trusts us to handle what he throws at us.


Love you all,

170 Miracles

Monday, July 3, 2017

This week heavenly father humbled me to show my once again that without him I can do nothing.

So it was a very crazy week we had two intercambios with Santa Cruz and Jorge Chavez. (Editor's note.  I think these are areas in her zone.)  They were good.  We get a lot done those days with four hermanas in our sector.  We also had divisions which we also get a lot done bc we go to another sector and work with them there.  We went to Ama Kella.  We also went to Callao to plan with them.  Oh the dear hermanas.  We have lots of great Hermanas in the mission but they cannot seem to get out of their own way.   Many of them think that they can do it alone and better than their companion, their bishop, and God.  So that is hard but we are working on helping them all with LOTS of love haha.  so Saturday we had an open house in the church in Santa Cruz and we went and also we were supposed to have a baptism at 8 so we left to meet him.  His name is Abel he is 18 and living in lima alone.  His sister is on a mission and he has made some really bad decisions but wants to change.  Well we got there and he didn't for the baptism.  We ended up going to his house and he was helping this lady move and said, "I don't feel ready.  That's why I didn't go."  He just is so lost and so sad!!  So we met the lady who moved in and she is a miracle!  Her daughters are Mormon she just never got baptized. 

Then Sunday.  S nobody answered our calls and the people we passed by for were not home or ready so we showed up at church without one investigator.  I was feeling pretty crappy.  But during the sacrament I was praying and thinking about what Hermana Larson said in our meeting Saturday.  About how if we are obedient, have faith and do all we can do God will show us miracles.  So I started thinking have we done all we can this week so our investigators come and progress??  And right before the sacrament in came and investigator with her daughter.  I felt more calm during the sacrament bc I knew that we did all we could we were diligent and worked hard to help these people.  So I did my part I thought, God will do his.  And he did.  After the sacrament Hna ñaupa said that one investigator came named Paula.  Then I turned around and Abel was there sitting with the Elders.  That was a miracle.  After all we can do.  God pulls through.  Our investigator Mabel, who came with her daughter, who was unsure about her baptism the 9th said she was ready.  We went and visited Abel after church and he was able to understand better the atonement and why he needed to get baptized.  Then we passed by for a referncia and were able to find a family of Venezolanos who have been in Peru from 7 months to 1 month.  They have family who are members and were listening to the missionaries in Venezuela!  They are so prepared and so nice.  Very humble bc of what they have been through in Venezuela.  They have almost nothing but God has been preparing them for years to know his gospel.

This week I have done very little and God has done a lot.  But my testimony has been strengthened and I know now more than ever that my work here is the work of salvation.  This is the Lord's work.  And the Lord trusts the weak to do his work.  The lord has trusted in me to be an instrument in his hands and if I do I will see miracles.

I know that we cannot make it through this life alone.  If we could, Christ would not have come to the earth.  His atonement is a gift. The price has been paid, we just need to humble ourselves enough to see it and use it.  Let him in.

Les amo mucho

Send help

Monday, June 26, 2017

I still haVE NOT LEARNED HOW TO MANAGE MY TIME IN WRITING oh look at that caps lock was on haha lol my life is a chiste/joke.

Yeah you guessed it.  I don't know how to do this.  I only have 7 months but God likes to throw me in fire and watch me LIGHT EVERYTHING UP!!!  hahaha 

I'm good my comp is awesome and she helps me a lot.  I just keep it loosey goosey and don't stress over the little things.

So my comp and I have to help five companionships of hermanas.  Two in our zone and three in two other zones.  We do intercambios with them go to their zone and do divisions and call them to see how they are doing, follow up with their investigators and give advice.  Don't know why I'm doing this bc I still need advice but oh well!!!  haha   Basically anytime the hermanas are sick have a question about rules or are causing problems (don't get along with their comp, pide, lack of caridad/charity are what we have been seeing lately) we either go to their sector and have divisions or call them. We are in contact with the assistants and Hna Larson a lot and also the district and zone leaders of the hermanas.  Super loco but God is helping me.

My house is a little bigger but still not big.  There are two rooms though and a bathroom but when we do intercambios (a companionship comes to our sector and we work 4 in one sector and they stay over night) they have to sleep on the floor.  haha.  It seriously has been the craziest two weeks ever and the cambio is almost halfway over.

This week was crazy busy!!!!!  Intercambios divisions!! and lots of running around but we should hopefully have two baptisms this weekend with faith and things are going great here in lince.  I PROMISE next week I will write more hahaha

Love y'all
Hna Glassett

This week was super crazy but good!  I'm really happy to be in Lince.  It's a lot nicer than my last sector!  The ward here is awesome and they help a bunch with missionary work!!

My last day with Hna Meroy was fun as usual! She's awesome.  It is weird to be away from her but I'm so happy to be here in Lince and work my tail off!

Today hopefully we are gonna eat some yummy food but those are about all our plans for pday!

It's getting pretty cold here so that's a bummer but it's fine bc the gospel makes people's hearts warm jajaj.

Temples and Temple marriage

Monday, June 12, 2017

So this week a drunk man proposed marriage but didn't show his loss.  We went to the temple and it was great.  Quite the adventure.

I'm getting transferred tomorrow.

This week we worked hard.  I am going to miss my Hna Meroy but I have loved being her companion and Leoncio Prado will always have a spot in my heart.

This week was fast and we worked hard and can you believe it I'm tired haha but sooo happy!!

Lima

Monday, June 5, 2017

It's like kind of cold here now.  I use chompas/sweaters. And very cloudy my dear Lima.

This week was a roller coaster but we're all good.  We have been teaching Julio y Ana for a week and they are awesome!  We are working to help them get married.  They want to come to church, they're just great! 

We are also working with Dalia.  She has an iceberg that we haven't quite uncovered yet but she is warming up to us more and more everyday. 

We got a reference from a member the other day and she is awesome!  She isn't married but she is very interested!!!

We also recently have started working with a member's husband.  We have to go slow with him to not scare him away but we are gaining trust.

We had a multizona this week and it was great!!  I really need to work on my teaching to help these people understand better.  The gospel is simple and can be explained simply so that's what I'm working on right now. 

We are also working with a lady named Esperanza, she came to church she is great!!!  And a girl named Andrea!  She is young but so smart!  She is the only one in her family who really listens to us but she loves it!  And bc of her, her family is changing.  Hopefully they will continue.

I think this is my last week here in Rimac but I'm happy to be here and I'm gonna work as hard as I can to leave this sector better than when I found it.

I love being a missionary.  

The church is true.

Read the Book of Mormon.
