Week 44 - Viru

June 27th - e-mail:

This week was an awesome week here in Viru. We were able to meet and get to know a few new young families which was so awesome. It isn't super hot either so that was an added bonus. It is crazy how in just a few months i went from sleeping with just a sheet to sleeping with two blankets. I am definitely enjoying this cooler weather.
This week we met two new young families and they are awesome. One of the couples is reading the Book of Mormon right now and is so prepared. It is so awesome to see how the Lord really helps people to change and how he works in them and prepares them. The second young family that we found was super awesome as well. They told us in the end of the first lesson that their house is our house. The Lord really does prepare these people to receive the gospel. 
This week we also had a really great lesson with a family that we have been working with for a while. Carlos and his wife Elisa, they have two kids and they have been going through a few trials lately. Their youngest son has been getting sick a lot and every now and then it gets really serious. The dad is also having trouble finding a steady job. They are so great and always so nice to us. I honestly couldn't imagine having to go through these trials as the father in the house. We talked about the plan of salvation and the dad teared up as he explained the comfort that he felt as he learned that even though we make mistakes in this life, or even though we sometimes do things the hard way, we get second chances. As we left that lesson I once again felt so strongly that i am so blessed in my life and really don't have any reason to complain or whine. 
I know that our Father in Heaven loves us and that he will deliver us from our trials and help make weak things become strong to us. I am so grateful for all that he has given me in this life. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary for these two years. It really is a blessing.
