Healings and Divisions

¡Hola familia y amigos!

This week has been loco crazy.

Last Monday we started off rough as Hermana Santos came down with a high fever, eye, back and muscle pains - all symptoms of dengue. We took it easy Tuesday, said a lot of prayers, drank lots of water like Hermana McMullin told us and by Wednesday she was back to 100%. No dengue here!!! We really think it was a miracle - Hermana Santos was not feeling good and usually dengue takes you out for a week or two. We're super greatful for her health!

Wednesday morning we attended an incredible devocional given by Elder David A. Bednar for the missions here in South America. We learned a lot and my comp and I have been applying what we learned. The greatest lesson I learned from the devocional was how to take notes and receive impressions from talks/devocionals. He gave us the advice based on the Book of Mormon; the Book of Mormon was written on two plates: 1) the large plates - a historical record of the events/what happened and 2) the small plates - the spiritual impressions, teachings, visions and writings of the profets. He said our notes should be more as the small plates (what the spirit is teaching to us), less of a word-for-word record of what the speaker says (what the speaker is teaching us).

This weekend we got to do divisions with Hermanas Jara and Lundberg in a neighboring area, Campo Grande. It was a lot of fun and I got to know a lot of members and investigators in Campo Grande. We also got to sleep in well-working air conditioning - the house in Campo Grande rocks! #tendermercies

The weekend was fun, but we are now back in home-sweet-home Moroni, ready to work hard. We only have a week left of this change - Hermana Santos is almost done with her training! And I feel like I'm just about to finish my second training - I've learned so much these last weeks.
I hope all is well! Thank you for your prayers for our health! They are answered!

With love sent from Paraguay,

We got a ton of Burger King coupons from a member so we celebrated Leap Year with Hermanas :)
