We Should Be Receptive to the Whisperings of God

This week was super great(:  We had to stay in the house for a full day because Soccer games are HUGE here in Chile and every one is busy and some are not in their right state of mind.  It is so fun (:  And I was super sick for 2 days straight.  So we only had a full 3 days of work this week :/ Monday we went on a hike and we brought our investigator with us!  His name is Gonzolo and he is 24 years old.  We thought it would be fun for him to see how the elders were, since there are 24 of them in our zone, and hang out with a good group of people.  Funny story.  He decides half way up the trail to take is shirt off and one of the elders offered him a lighter shirt and he took it and tied it around his head..... then at the top of the mountain, due to the fact we have not yet taught him the work of wisdom, decided to smoke some weed.  It was a fantastic experience and we were all, not going to lie, cracking up. We had to give him a little lesson at the top of the mountain (: It was fantastic lol But that was the funny story, now on for what we did productively this week...  We had a meeting at the Bishops house this week and we were just talking and he told us a story that I wanted to share with you guys!   He was telling us about a time when he was first bishop and he felt a very strong impression to give a lady member a hug and he didn't know why so he kind of brushed it off, but the voice came to him stronger the second time, and he is kind of a huggy guy so he walked up to her and just gave her a hug. She looked at him contently and said "Bishop why did you just give me a hug?" and he said, I don't know I just had a feeling to! and she told him that at that moment she was praying to God to give her a hug because she had had a very stressful week... When we are living our lives how we should be living then we are receptive to the whisperings of God.  Because Heavenly Father cannot be here to help each one of us personally, he allows his children, US, to be tools in his hands, to act in his place.  I believe you do not have to be a member of the Church in order to do this, yes, as members of the Church we have more opportunities to act, but I believe if we are living our lives with virtue and value, we can be chosen to be tools in his hands to help other people, his children, in times of trial and need♥ I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve.  To read and think about the life of Jesus Christ and be a tool in his hands for 18 months here in Santiago Chile. 

I love you guys and hope all is well :)
Be smart, be obedient and be happy♥ 
See you in 7 more fast Sundays!
have a super sassy week!!
