Another week in the life of a missionary (Tucuman) Week 49

Hola Familia y Amigos!

It was a good week! Normal but good. So basically the usual happened: wake up, get ready, study, eat, walk, teach, plan, sleep, repeat. Its quite the routine but I’m happy doing it.
Because of challenges I am growing and developing Christ-like attributes (patience and love)
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
 32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
 34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. (Luke 6 31-35)
So I tried to do that thing that Bethany told me to do to put a sticky note in my planner and write down stuff that happened so I did! (There’s only 2 things lol)
1. I’m finally repenting for not writing in my journal for a while (uh a long while). So when I wrote in my journal the first time on Monday, I put a page in between the last entry and the new entry. After I wrote I had an idea. I named the time that i didn’t write in my journal (September 22nd, 2015 until May 29th 2016) “The Great Apostasy of Elder Brundage’s mission”. I then titled my entry on May 30th “The Restoration”! Don’t worry I won’t stop this time haha
2. So the familia Juarez is doing good. After the confirmation of Lara and Aylen on Sunday the other kids are super excited about the church! The oldest daughter Daniela went to institute on Wednesday and asked us how she could read talks from the Liahona (ensign) from 2001 and 2003 so that she could do the reading. The next day, Thursday, was her 20th birthday party. Where did she have it? You guessed it… the chapel! Also she did this self sufficiency course that the church is doing and she signed up for one of the weekly classes. The funny thing about all of this is that she isn’t even an investigator yet lol. We’ll do it this week don’t worry 😉
God lives and He love us! He sent his son Jesus Christ to suffer and die for us so that we can live if we believe and follow him!
Livin’ the Dream,
Elder Brundage
