Week 68! "I'm Alive :-)"

From 4/27/15

Hola Family and Friends!
I don't have a lot of time - I'm alive.
We've seen a lot of blessings of being in the right place at the right time. We randomly knocked on a man's door looking for a reference named Hermano M. He didn't live there, but the man who answered the door let us in and said that while he lived in Cuernavaca many missionaries had contacted him, but he had never talked in depth to missionaries before. His wife came out, we introduced ourselves and said that we share a message from God. Then she burst into tears and went inside and closed the door. Uhhhh... What had we said wrong? Well, the moment that we knocked on their door, they had been fighting. His wife doesn't believe in God because of all the trials she has gone through in her life. And that on top of the struggles she's had, they have not been getting along in their marriage. It was so sad to see her husband cry too. We gave the best counsel we could in that moment - and we felt impressed to tell him that God sent us to his house as an answer to their prayers and struggles. We left with a return appointment and felt a great responsibility to help them.
It felt like Heavenly Father has given us a lot of challenging situations this week with our investigators because He trusts us. It's really amazing to think of how much the Savior loves us to help us overcome our personal challenges and trials. He bore all of these things before we ever did in order to know how to run to our aid. I know that He lives, I am grateful for His sacrifice and to be able to testify to others of Who will truly heal them and make them whole.
Have a great week!

P.S. There is a sugar factory in our area that literally looks like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. It is always sending white smoke out of the towers and it looks like it's from a movie.
There are SO many caña [sugar cane] fields here. It is an area that produces SO much sugar.
I will try to send a picture next week.
