2015-10-20 MTC Adventures

"And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." 2 Nephi 25:26
So this first picture is a picture of our breakfast. It consists of sugar, chocolate, and candy. Why is this? Because we had quite an adventure this morning which started at 4 a.m. We knew Sister Sellers was leaving this week to go to her reassignment, since she hasn't gotten her visa yet, but she thought she was leaving tomorrow. She took one of the sisters in the other zone to the travel office since she was leaving this morning. As she was waiting for the sister to leave, she heard the travel office people call someone down because her bus was leaving to take her to the airport. This person happened to be her. She ran back into our room and realized that her flight plans had said Tuesday, and not Wednesday. We then proceeded to pack/throw all of her stuff into her suitcases in 20 minutes, rushed her down to the travel office, and then someone took her to the airport. At this point it was just before 5, so we decided to get dressed and go to the Temple, since it would be no use going back to sleep to get up in 2 hours. We went and came back, 3 hours later, and by the time we came back, breakfast had closed and we were hungry. We went to our room and the only things we had were in this picture, thus this was our breakfast.

On to the second picture. Este é meu distrito. Or this was my district until he left this morning for Brazil. BUT on the bright side, I get 2 personal tutors a day for the next 3 weeks!
This past Sunday Chad Lewis spoke at the devotional. He played for BYU then the Eagles. It was super cool because he was making football analogies and I understood it, and I have very much missed hearing about football. 
We also watched a talk by Elder Holland, and he gave this poem that I really liked. It was originally in French but this is the English translation:
"Come to the edge" he said,
"No, we will fall"
"Come to the edge" he said,
"No we will fall"
"Come to the edge" he said,
We came to the edge,
he pushed us,
and we flew. 
Always listen to our Heavenly Father. Never give up on him. Things may seem strange, and you don't know how they are going to work out. But they always work out. It may take a week, a year, or a lot of years. But He knows what he is doing. Never doubt that.
Thanks for everything,
Sister Morgan Ruiz
