We had our multi zone conference with prez, which obviously was great. I played the piano but I had to fight with the hymn book cause it didn't want to stay open...so there miiiight have been a couple of mess ups but ya normallll.
Then at the end of the conference president wanted everyone to give their testimony...2 hours later of hearing every type of testimony and some very interesting stories....I've decided we are all on very different roads to becoming true disciples of Christ and this church must be true if we (young and super immature who know nothing about life) are preaching and giving people the chance for something as big as Salvation...I stand all amazed. The church is TRUEEEEE.
This week I did work visits in chasky( a sector in cusco) with an Hermana from Honduras and it was great I love learning from and getting to know these sisters they are so different and have amazing stories of their conversions and their lives. I'm a lucky gal. guess what we had for lunch? salchipapa! french fries and fried hot dogs(and when I say hot dogs I'm talking about pink long cylinders that seem to have the appearance of meat) drenched in oil...I think my liver has had it tough haha.
The pensionista in chasky se llama mama Jessie and is also the pensionita of the elders in the office, so she knows the scoop on ALL the mission, and she spoils the missionaries sooo much and she calls us her hijas and hijos. so I became an official hija of mama Jessie this week and now one of her fishes name is hija Rasmussen! haha
so my ward.. The ward of San Jeronimo is one of the biggest wards and probably the strongest ward in the mission....but as president told me I would find a lot of pride in this ward... he was right.
BIG SAN JERONIMO WARD
I've never had troubles with wards or leaders but now I am learning that my Heavenly Father is testing my humility and my patience. attributes of Christ. I love Jesus so much and am so grateful that I have a PERFECT example in all things that I can follow. Yes I'm weak but Jesus faced weakness also and over came it all and I can overcome my weaknesses by his grace through my faith in him and his atonement.
I love this gospel, I can't say it enough! it truly TRULY helps us be happy. if we are looking for happiness we aint going to find it anywhere else but the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I love you all oh so very very much:)
