This past week was pretty awesome, as every week has been :) The mission is great and I love it so much here. This past week we had interviews with President Avila and his sweet wife. I love them so much. The interviews are always getting better because I understand Spanish more and more each time, and it's just awesome. With Hermana Avila, she asked us to imagine ourselves as investigators and think about our progress (but as missionaries). How are you progressing? What changes have you made? How are you using the Atonement of Christ everyday in your life? How have you improved? As I thought about these questions, I thought about the past few months here in Mexico and my experiences as a missionary... I want to invite all of you to ask yourselves these questions, and think about your personal progression as a disciple of Jesus Christ. I promise that the Spirit will testify to your heart as it did to mine. I felt the love Heavenly Father has for me, and how he wants me to improve, and better myself as a missionary. I know the things I need to do to improve, and I know that I will have the help of the Lord every step of the way.
Our Zone Conference was awesome. I love getting to listen to the messages of our leaders, and how we can all better ourselves as missionaries. Basically, zone conferences are the best :)
This week a guy pulled over in his car, and shouted "Hey you! Do you know English?!" and told him that I do, and he asked a few questions, and all in all, he wants to receive the lessons. He's been trying to decide between religions and wanted to hear about ours, but he only speaks English. Hermana Rosales had me translate her testimony and write it down on a piece of paper in English and she's been practicing. I'll keep you updated on his progress :)
We also found this super awesome lady, Gloria. And she came to church with us , (after having previously attended a baptist church for 25 years) and all in all, she said that it was really quiet, and wasn't quite sure how to feel about the Book of Mormon. She wants us to keep visiting her every once in a while, but I'm not sure she wants to come to church again haha.
We're helping a family prepare for the temple in April, and we are so excited for them. I am seriously so excited. They're doing everything they can to be ready and it is just the greatest thing ever. I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY :D.....
.....oopsies. That sent too soon haha.
I was basically finished anyway, but I love you all so much and I am so grateful for you!
Love Hermana Brinton
Also, I will send photos next week...I accidentally left my cable at the house.
