Since Hermana Enriquez spent about half of the week dying, I had a decent amount of time to read scriptures. That scripture was my favorite discovery this week. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. How can I ever have self doubt, if I am a child of God? How powerful.
We did just about nothing Monday. Well, we watched a church movie and made impanadas de papas. We knocked doors for a few hours Tuesday evening. Starting to work after not having done much for a few days was difficult. But after a while I felt like a missionary again. It was great. It made me realize that I belong out here. On Wednesday, I was on fire. Less so since then. Things are picking back up though.
Sorry that this email is going to be really short. There isn't much else to say. Appointments cancel, as usual. People are awkward. We are awkward. It gets dark earlier than I want it to. In one of the classes at church this Sunday, I learned that I know enough Spanish to be able to translate a lesson into English for one of the few Americanas there. That was fun.
Hopefully I will have more things to write about next week. God answers prayers. Success is heavily based on obedience. The Atonement of Christ is still way beyond my comprehension. The idea fascinates me that one day He could say to me "Stop crying. Look up. I accept you and you efforts. I love you." We believe that we are "saved by grace after all we can do". As if only after all our best efforts, then Christ steps in. I have also heard "we are saved by grace EVEN AFTER all we can do", or "in spite of all we can do." Even after all we can do to mess it up with our pride or faults or whatever, Christ still reaches out His hand, offering to raise us up. I still can't understand that sort of complete love, but I know I need it.
Have a great week!
