The Plan of Salvation

Hey hi. This week was so great! We had so much work(: probably because our area tripled in size. But yeah its great, so many great new investigators! I really feel like the work is going to start to bloom here in Santa Fe!

This week I went on exchanges with Sister Read, shes american! My first american companion in the field! hahah we visited Sister Ana (the cute little old lady picture) she is 89 years old and got baptized last year in July. We reviewed the plan of salvation with her haha all she cares about the plan of salvation is that she knows she can see her husband again!
Sister Ana
Like she tells us "Sisters, I just want to die right now, I did that baptism thing now I just need to die" oh Ana(: But I really do just love the plan of salvation. How wonderful that we all have the possibility to live as ang isa ka family with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and even to live the same lives as them!

So our lesson in gospel principles class was on prayer. It was such a great lesson I was reminded (kind of chastised too) of so many simple things about prayer that I guess I forgot... But yeah like that there are three potential answers to our prayers. Yes. No. And wait. I forgot that sometimes we need to wait for answers to our prayers! What a great thing to remember right? After I was reminded of that I realized how vain my prayers had been. I've been asking for so many things and then just kind of expecting an answer dayon! Like no Sister Schimbeck thats not how it works. A prayer without works is so vain! I was praying for something thing and then not doing any work to be worthy of an answer! I testify that we have a loving Heavenly Father that listens to and answers every single prayer of ours. I'm so grateful I have prayer to talk with my Father in Heaven and truly come to know Him for myself! Yeah, well I just love being a missionary! bye stay fresh!
