We have a cute family we are teaching! Matt and Chrissy and their three girls. They are a family who the elders met a few weeks before we got here. We met them our second week but had to make a return appointment. At that appointment we taught the Restoration of the Gospel. She loved it, well what she could catch because the kids were running around wreaking havoc. But we made another appointment to see them this coming Tuesday and invited them to church! They ended up not coming. We felt a prompting that we should go see them last night. When we stopped by they welcomed us in and we talked for a long time about the Book of Mormon. We didn't plan to teach much other than seeing why they weren't at church and sharing a scripture. She said when we read the scripture she got chills. Then when Matt got home she asked us to share it again! She was so excited! We will see her on Tuesday. I think this is going to be a good one! They are so prepared! And their daughters are adorable and full of energy!
We set some goals for this coming year. I struggled with what I want to do this coming year, since I'll be a missionary the whole time. With some help from the Lord, I decided that I will be focusing on being positive and enjoying every moment of the mission(companion, area, ward, etc). I know that if we rely on the Lord to set goals and continue to rely on him we will be able to remember and eventually achieve them!
Anyway, I love you all! I hope New Year's was great and that you will enjoy the coming year! (:
Love, Sister Mondragon<3
