September 7, 2015

Hello everyone!!!!!! How was your week? Here in Costa Rica its hot, humid, and fun! I think the best thing that happened this week was when I went to the temple!! It was so beautiful. I hadn't gone in 9 months and now I can actually understand the Spanish. I took my patriarchal blessing into the celestial room and read it. I felt the spirit so strong. I sat there with Elder Tullis and Elder Stott and just soaked in the spirit (and the air conditioning). I got to see Elder Dale. He is now a zone leader in Liberia Guanacaste. It was so great to go to the temple. We also went to the temple store and bought some movies and books. I am so grateful for the temple here on the earth. I never thought I would have a hunger or need for the temple this much. I now appreciate it more than ever. It's my favorite place to be.
So something cool also happened this week. Finally, zone La Sabana got divided into 2 zones! I am now part of zone Escazu and actually AGAIN, a district leader!! But this time for Escazu which includes the zone leaders, sister training leaders, and the secretaries. So I'm a district leader again. I had to do a baptismal interview for one of the secretaries whom I did not pass because she was totally not ready for baptism. She had been drinking coffee the day of. 
So yesterday at church, we were getting ready to start! I looked out the window to see if any more investigators were coming and I saw something I wasn't expecting! President Laboriel and his wife pulled up in their car and came to our church yesterday!! It was cool! Different, but cool!
So sometimes, being companions with the nurse has its ups and downs. On Saturday night one of the sisters in our zone had an anxiety attack and had to go to the hospital. So yesterday, my comp and I went to her area so my comp could see what was going on. The Zone Leaders and sister training leaders showed up and we gave her a priesthood blessing. She is in really bad condition and unfortunately will be going home today or tomorrow. Her name is Sister Amador from Honduras. Pray for her please:) 
I am doing great here in Santa Ana. I am having fun and suffering !:) Every once in a while I have some bad days, but I know that Heavenly Father knows me personally and is watching over me! I love you all!! I hope you have a great week!! Your scripture for this week is- 3 Nephi 19:22-33!!! I love you all!
