Power of the Spirit

So, this week contained some of the most powerful moments with the spirit that I have had. It was amazing! We also made smores and met Hermano McKenzie.

Making smores!

The cookie is like those Marias from Mexico, remember those? And then it has peanut butter, a chocolate square and pink and blue marshmallows. Kind of gross. I never liked marshmallows but they are super hard to find down here and they remind me of the States, so I eat them.

Hermano Mckenzie makes these! I think I’m going to buy a small one.
Hermano McKenzie is a member here in Tacuari.

Hermana Nunton and I were doing really well last week! It was going so well, and it was very fun!

On Wednesday we had our every-3-month interviews with President LaPierre. Can I just say that that man is definitely called by God! 

We sat down and we started to talk. We talked about me, how I was, we talked about my area, Hermana Nunton and a lot of things. As we talked the spirit just came. He shared some life experiences that were so powerful. For those of you who have been through the temple, it felt like that in that room. We were both so overwhelmed by it. It was something incredible.

I felt so happy, joyful and with so much hope. I felt like I really was doing my part and that God was pleased with my work. I felt like President really cares about me and loves me. I felt God´s love for me and it was a feeling that I can´t deny that it was the power of God.

I left that room feeling like I could conquer the world and go and baptize everyone out there. Of course that didn’t happen, but the spirit that I felt, and the President felt, was amazing! 

Thursday I kept with that same spirit, but we had to go to the doctor because Hermana Nunton was sick. We were there waiting in “Emergencies” for like 2 and a half hours, and then met with the doctor for like 5 minutes; it was fun? haha. 

Herman Nunton is doing okay. She is feeling better. She has asthma so she is using an inhaler and it is helping. But I think she is really thinking of home a lot and it doesn´t help... but she is doing better! 

Oh last Monday and all last week I read the book “Our Search for Happiness” by Elder Ballard. If you have not read it, I encourage you to. I think that it is what brought the spirit the whole week as well. I was bawling because of the spirit. I finished it on Saturday and it was really sad because I didn’t want it to end! 

We had an amazing lesson with Enrique and Maria Ester. We showed the hour and 20 minute version of the Joseph Smith movie. The spirit was so strong and we were all crying, even them! The spirit was so strong and my testimony grew even more! Enrique came to church. Maria Ester still hasn´t but one day she will. I know it! 

The spirit was amazing this week, and today I watched more videos and I was crying the whole time. The spirit makes a crybaby out of me, but it has been really strong lately. I know that this Church is true, with all of my heart. God is the head of it and leads this work! 

With all my love,
Hermana Newell
