#4: Feeling the Hand of the Lord Work in my Life

This week has been a lot easier.  This week my companion and I taught a lesson on prayer in Spanish and it lasted about 15 minutes, and apparently, I spoke for about 10 mins!!!! I honestly had no idea.  The gift of tongues is real and I can testify of that. Each week my Spanish is getting better and better.

The spirit works in miraculous ways and I love it!  Serving a mission is the best decision that I've made in a very long time.  I encourage all the young men to serve.  You won't regret it!  I've come to love the culture and the opportunity to serve them.  They are seriously the kindest people on the planet.

This week has been tough for a lot of missionaries because about 90 of the 400 missionaries here got some type of stomach virus...Luckily, I didn't catch it so I was able to further my learning of the gospel and Spanish and not have to be bed ridden.  The Lord has definitely blessed me with good health.  The new Comidor (cafeteria) is super nice compared to the last one.  We've been eating there for the last 10 days or so.

I seriously just fall in love with little Krew each time I see pictures of him!  Absolutely Adorable.
Thank you for being my biggest support.  I love you forever and always.  Keep sending those prayers my way! :)
