Why do we have a word of the day? Why not!? HA! Jokes we have a word of the day because we are helping prepare Sister Yu for the TOFL test so she can go to BYUH! This is serious business! This morning we sang the alphabet song like 10 times (: I used to sing it with Sister Fuentes when she was learning English too...ah good times!(: I love singing.
One more story! Just a couple hours ago I was on the square with Sister Marambio and we were taking a Spanish tour! Yay! Well, some of the guests in the group did not want to hear about religion at all, but there were two who were very very interested. They asked lots of questions and they really liked the Temple. (: At the end while Sister Marambio had just finished explaining the Book of Mormon, just as we were supposed to finish the tour, I had the thought "Ask him if he wants a Book of Mormon!" So, although they didn't speak English, I blurted out "Do you want a free copy of The Book of Mormon?" He looked at me confused and Sister Marambio quickly translated what I said, haha! And...he said yes! Not only that, but he said Sister Marambio can call him and continue to teach him more! It was exciting!
So yes...always follow the promptings of the spirit! I've noticed that when the spirit speaks to me it's usually just appears to be a "thought that I have" so in the beginning of my mission I would think, "Ah but what if he says no?" ect ect...but then in about my 4th transfer I realized...this isn't MY thought, this is the spirit prompting me, so I MUST just do it anyways! Now, every time I act on those thoughts, good always comes of it.
Ok, bye now!(:
My companion, Sister Yu and I at the General Woman's Meeting!
