Satan thought he could win [5/17/2017 email]

Hello hello!!

So first off, HAPPY LATE MOTHERS DAY!! Talking with the fam was fun. And weird. But mostly fun. Mmmm this week we had a family home evening with Benjamin and Jocelyn who are doing super good, and Hermana Jocelyn did the lesson and talked about how we are literal children of God and sometimes the world makes us forget that like how she forgot that for a long time but in the end it was super good and we could feel the spirit so strong. It is super cool to see how they both are progressing so well.

Also today, we had to get up at 5:00 so that we could make it to the 9 o'clock session at the temple and we first off were supposed to meet the elders at a certain bus stop and when we got there the elders weren't there so we just decided to get on the bus. Then we met up with other elders at the train station but turns out the train wasn't working at that time in that station so then we had to run to the other train station but turns out we didn't have the special train pass thing that we needed because we thought that the one main card would work for it but nope. So then we had to take the bus and then take a metro and then another metro and in Chile in the morning the metro is so crammed full of people that you don't need to hold onto the hand rail because the people are packed in so tightly that it is impossible to fall. And then we literally ran like 7 blocks from the metro station to the temple and got there 4 minutes too late. So we had to wait for the next session BUT we got to do initiatory so that was cool. So the lesson is, when Satan thinks he's got you and he's foiled your plans, just go and do initiatory in the temple and you'll learn new things and get the upper hand on him.

Also here are some pictures from when we were in the house of an investigator the other day, her niece was putting the blanket all over me because she thought I was cold and wanted to help. Anyways, I hope you all have just a lovely week!
