Receiving Blessings

This past week has been a struggle, we couldnt move out of our house, the papers with Church legal didnt get through so we hope that we will be out of there today. We were sitting at our desk the other night and Elder Noll says dude look at! And I look and there was a rat the size of a small cat just chillin outside of our window! It was huge! Its been an interesting week with animals too, we have seen all sorts of bugs and spiders and too top top all off, we saw a huge black, yellow and red snake. It had to have been a good 3 feet long.... The mosquitos are super aggressive and are black with white stripes and have eating us up! Pure luck that we havent gotten dengue yet... It will be good to get outt the house.

We have been teaching a couple of good families, but we are still lacking investiagtors, and are running out of ideas of how to find more. We are going to start some english classes and teach the gospel in english to those who come. We also have the idea to do sport nights at the church and play some kind of sport, so pray for us that we can find new people!

We had a lesson this last week with an investigador and we talked about how she could recieve more blessing in her life and how Christ had dies for her, specfically for her. How she and all people can recieve the blessings that God has for us, it was sad to see how her character held her back and she responded how she is content with the blessing that God has for her. It was soo sad to see. Made me think of how many people live below their privedges and blessings. We dont have to be content ever, we can complete with the comandments and then deserve the blessings that come. Some days it can seem daunting or hard but all thats good comes from Our Heavenly Father. I am so thankful for the parents I had that aught me the Gospel from a young age. I encourage you all to never be content and always strive for more in your lives! 

love you all and hope you have a great week!
